Toileta app helps users quickly and individually search for safe and clean public restrooms. The analysis of the context of use showed that similar apps are usually used by people who are on the move and like to explore different aspects of big cities. Therefore, the developed app should support active users to feel free and flexible in their daily urban life.

Main features of the app:

  • Restroom finder - online map of public restrooms, which is also available offline
  • Search filter - rating system based on cleanliness, safety, availability of baby changing stations, wheelchair-friendliness and cost
  • According to research, many users use entertainment features of apps while on the toilet. Thus, the Gallery function for entertainment and education was developed as a logical addition to other functions. With this feature, users can view, filter, save and share with friends unusual or eccentric images of toilet designs
