Bean is a very simple app for iPhone that lets you increment counters with whatever labels you choose. If you want to remember, say, how many donuts you’ve had this week, just label one of the pre-made counters and tap it each time you scarf one down. If you over-count — or just want to cheat a little bit — a two-finger tap decrements the counter. Easy.
The functionality isn’t earth-shattering, but the interaction design is really nicely done: the counters are arrayed in a colorful grid reminiscent of the Metro design language of Windows, and you pinch and zoom to bring focus to each counter.
