Access to safe restrooms is an important transgender rights issue - REFUGE seeks to aid this mission. Visit refugerestrooms.org for more information.
What's New in Version 1.3.0
- Adds iOS 9.0 compatibility
This app is a wonderful thing for me. It's saved me many times when I'm in an unfamiliar area, and I recommend downloading it. There are a few things that need to be added/improved, including a way to edit your added restrooms (I made a mistake with one). I hope to see this app flesh out a little more with more features and improved interface screens, but in my experience it's a great app that can only get better.
Before I get the app
I just wanna say it's really great that this exists and should be advertised frequently. I'm getting the app to add locations on to hopefully help others, seeing as I'm not actually transgender. I encourage anyone else reading this to do the same, because you have to actually mark the locations if nobody else has yet. I'll edit this if need be, but other than that, huge thank you to the creators of this app!
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.
