Food is part of travel and some may even travel just for that steak (think Kobe Beef in Japan or Asado in Argentina). The travel app Visited allows travellers to check off famous food experiences around the world. The app also lets users track their travels on different travel lists and by personalizing their travels on custom map. For those looking for their next destination, you can scroll through top travel lists, inspirations and mark places that you wish to travel to. The travel app will then rank the countries based on quantity of sites you wish to see.
