really?

i subscribe to Today's Parent and quite love the magazine. i'm also a fan of TP (unfortunate initials...) on facebook and saw this article yesterday: 21 apps for parents. on the verge of a 6-7 hour roadtrip tomorrow, i clicked over to see what these apps are and whether they would be something for ben to play with.

this app made me shake my head because in the article, they think it's great but in reality, i can't imagine it's that clever. it's called "sit or squat" and it helps you find the nearest bathroom when your toddler has to go. all you do is TYPE IN YOUR POSTAL CODE and the closest bathrooms show up. "what's that, billy? you have to pee really badly? hang on, let me open up this app...okaay...now, how do i find a postal code for this intersection that we're at..." doesn't this sound difficult to anyone else? from what i know about kids having to pee, you have about one minute to find a spot.

at least the app is free...

I don't know what its like with kids, but Rick found a similar app like that for toilets in general and its actually helpful for finding toilets in public places in London.

Quite often its difficult finding public bathrooms in Europe in general, especially ones that don't cost money. So maybe in Canada it renders useless but I could see it being really good for over here.
