Find the Nearest Public Restroom

mizpee.jpg"When nature calls, call Miz Pee." That's the tagline I just made up for this poorly named but undeniably useful service, which helps you find the closest (and cleanest) bathroom. Just point your mobile phone's browser to, click Find Toilet, and then input your city and street address. The service quickly returns a list of nearby johns, complete with user ratings, and lets you know if a purchase is necessary to use the facilities. Alas, for the moment it has listings for only about a dozen cities; if yours isn't among them, you'll have to rely on the old-fashioned method: Ask someone. [via AppScout]
