Phone program finds restrooms

A Japanese software company has come up with a cell phone program to help people out on the town find the nearest restroom.

Software manufacturer Access Co. said the Check a Toilet Widget, developed in cooperation with mapmaker NPO Check, allows users to get a list of nearby lavatories with detailed descriptions of the available facilities, Mainichi Daily News reported.

The company said the program is a free download for phones running the Windows Mobile or Symbian S60 operating systems.
