Find a Nearby Toilet with Your iPhone

Location-based application that shows you the nearest sanitary unit

  SitOrSquat user interface
SitOrSquat has got to be the most useful free iPhone app ever developed, as it assists you in the worst times one can possibly imagine – when you simply HAVE to go! You can search for toilets based on your current location, or an address anywhere in the world. Simply pick a favorite (if you have time for that) and get directions.

“Have you ever had to go to the bathroom desperately and not known where the closest toilet is? Have you ever been on the road and needed to find a bathroom? Well in the past it was hit or miss... now there's a tool to get you to the bathroom that you so desperately need as quickly as is humanly possible,” says Jonathan Glanz, the developer of SitOrSquat.

According to the iTunes App Store description, this is not the first release of SitOrSquat for iPhone. The app has seen releases on other handheld devices, while the iPhone version is at 2.3. SitOrSquat is ad supported, but it's free to download and use on your iPhone and iPod touch starting right now. The app now offers pre-built "Saved Searches" such as "Changing Tables" and "Open Now."
