Use Your Mobile Phone to Find Public Toilets on the Go

Hey, when you've got to go, you've got to go. However, finding a clean, accessible crapper in New York City is like trying to find a Nintendo Wii at Christmas (it's difficult). Luckily there is now a mobile solution -

As plainly stated on the company's web site, Diaroogle is "for the discerning, on-the-go defecator who is brave enough to use a public bathroom, but still demands a hygienic and private bathroom experience."

By visiting on your mobile phone's browser, you can search for a public toilet by address, cross street, zip, or NYC neighborhood. Listings include specific directions (the best restrooms are often the most difficult to find) and photos of the facilities. Toilets are rated according to privacy, cleanliness and accessibility. Diaroogle is user-generated, so you can submit toilets to the database as you come across them.

At the moment, Diaroogle is only available in New York City. However, the developers hope to include other parts of the country in the near future.
