Great idea! Needs added functionality
This could & hopefully will become an invaluable resource to many. First, thank you for creating this.
I currently already started my own data set of safe private bathrooms on my Google Maps before finding this user generated app. I tried transferring my data manually. It's currently time consuming & ultimately the app prevented me. I added one location which had to be entered twice before registering on the map. My second attempted contribution the app said that my "submission was rejected as spam." No explanation why. I gave great concise details. Also, can't click on map locations, like an existing restaurant, to add rest room data. Instead you must stop, go to Google maps, get the address of the place, go back to app, enter adress into the map, of a biz that is already showing on map, but can't be added to or interacted w/ directly, so it must essential be duplicated to create an entry. Need to be able to interact with, contribute to or build upon existing data instead of having to recreate it. Why are my efforts to improve this data set getting instantly rejected when trying to contribute? Also, ditto prev reviewer on need to edit, add to existing contributions. Can't even add to my one successful contribution. Hopefully this is resolved soon. Thanks.
Great app! Use it and make it even better!
This app is super helpful. It's naturally more useful in some places than others, but you can change that by using the app and adding to the database. I've even shared with close friends and family so they can do the same. Thanks for putting this out there for us! It makes traveling so much less stressful.
It's not working anymore?
It's a fantastic app, but for some reason it's no longer functional for me. Either I open the app and all it is is a pitch black screen, or it opens and immediately closes again. I've tried uninstalling then reinstalling the app, but I don't know if this is just a problem for me or what. It's essential for me and my safety so if it doesn't work it's not all that great...
