Apps and sites are indispensable when traveling. Facilitating navigation, finding places of interest, reviews of hotels and vacation areas - all this is the merit of modern services. But they are useful not only during the trip. For avid travelers, it's important to mark places they've been before, keep statistics and share them with friends.

Traveling to the U.S. often requires the use of separate services. After all, states or unique attractions are not displayed everywhere. To this end, many sites and apps have been created, both for simple note taking and full-fledged note taking, goal setting, etc.

Three of the most popular state counter apps are 'Places Been - Travel Tracker', 'Countries Been: Visited Places', and 'Visited: Track Your Travels'.

Visited states map

Convenient minimalist site to track states visited. No extra functions - only a list of visited states. It is possible to mark states with an interactive map and a table. If you put the cursor on the interactive map - it displays the name of the state.

The map can be scaled, colors and design can be changed. After creating it, you can download the picture, share it in social networks or place the link on your personal site.

** Cons**:

  • The site is not suitable for real-time tracking, it's just creating a picture as a "recap".

Another site for creating a map of visited states in the United States and then publishing it. Visited states are not just displayed on the map, but also marked with different colors:

  • Red - have been through or haven't spent much time;
  • Orange - spent at least a night;
  • Blue - spent a lot of time;
  • Green - spent a lot of time sightseeing or returning several times.

U.S. states not visited are grayed out.

Colors can be customized in the palette section. You can share the map by saving it in PNG format, sharing it on social media, or as a link.

The app is available in the Appstore for iOS.
