Trending: Convoy raises $62M from Bill Gates and other luminaries to transform trucking industry with technology

Have you ever wanted to remember that great sushi place in Seattle or the crab bisque you ate at a seafood restaurant in San Fran? Urbanspoon today is rolling out a new update for iPhone users that essentially allows individuals to track where they ate over time, including the dishes they purchased.

Urbanspoon’s Conrad Saam described it as kind of like a “check-in, but less public.”

“We’re not trying to push anyone to be Mayor or Duke of anything,” he said.

That’s a reference to FourSquare, the mobile check-in service which is largely built around the idea of creating public leaderboards. (Interestingly, that’s an idea which was just touted earlier today by Avvo, the Seattle online lawyer and doctor Q&A site).

Urbanspoon’s new iPhone update isn’t about publicly broadcasting where you eat, but more of a database that restaurant-goers can use to track the restaurants or cuisines or neighborhoods they like.

Based in Seattle, Urbanspoon was sold to IAC in 2009.
