Here’s the scenario. You pull into an Australian country town while on holiday and you really need to ‘go’.
Not just needing to go – really needing to go… This app can help you.
From the app description : Just in Time uses your current location to find the nearest publicly accessible bathrooms anywhere in Australia. There is no faster way to get you there just in the nick of time! Provides information on over 16,000 public toilets and restrooms Australia wide in an accessible and intuitive way. Search by street, suburb or place name.
A quick search of the Play Store returns a number of Aussie loo apps but after using this one for a while I have to say it’s a keeper. I like the map + address info + location photo (if available) display which looks great on a tablet but still very usable on a phone.
The app can find your location using either WiFi / Mobile data (approximate) or GPS (exact) but if neither is available you can search for a location and get a list of the closest loos. Of course, the location photos or map isn’t shown unless you have internet access.
You can filter toilets by available facilities such as disabled access, baby changing facilities and sanitary disposal facilities. To be even more useful for caravan owners we reckon that adding long vehicle parking facilities and if a dump point is available would improve this already useful app, especially for the ‘grey nomads’!
It uses publicly available data from the Australian Department of Health and Aging which should mean the app will be kept up to date.
Give it a try rate the app and let us know what you think in the comments (thanks to Ken for the App tip).
