Gotta Go to the Bathroom? New iOS App Allows Booking of Private Home Toilets

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- (TYDN) Apple approved Friday its latest "sharing economy" application for iPhones and iPads, one that allows users to immediately book private home toilets, TheYellowDailyNews has learned.

The new AirWC app, which connects those having to go to the bathroom with people renting their toilets, follows an onslaught of apps in the "sharing economy" space to land on iOS and Android. Some of the most popular ones assist in short-stay home or room rentals, taxi services and even dog walking.

Analysts, however, said the AirWC app has stumbled on an often overlooked market.

"How many times have you been out and about and then, suddenly, you really had to go to the bathroom?" iOS analyst Jackson DiJornolo asked in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews. "This is a game changer."

Under the app's terms of service, toilet renters must agree to charge no more than $4 for 15 minutes of bathroom time. Additional minutes and premium services cost extra.

The GPS-enabled app, which is expected to be released on Android later this month, shows bathroom-goers a detailed map of all the available rental toilets in their immediate vicinity, and provides directions as well.

App designer Joe Johnson was suffering a new bout of colitis and was not immediately available to comment on how he came up with the idea.
