Flushd Launches World's Best Bathroom App for the iPhone (Yeah, You

Read This Right)

SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AhhhMedia, LLC is

pleased to announce the launch of Flushd, the world's best bathroom

app. Currently available for the iPhone and iPad, it's an innovative

and fresh approach to the potty. Puns intended.

Looking for a bathroom with a changing table? Trying to avoid

bathrooms with attendants? Have an emergency and simply need to find

the closest bathroom...immediately? Flushd shows you the way in a fun

and easy manner.

"Our goal is to take a conversation that is happening on the fringes

and bring it mainstream," says James Edwards, CEO of AhhhMedia, LLC -

the App's creator. "We want to embrace one of the world's greatest

inventions and celebrate an experience that we take for granted

everyday."

Flushd allows the user to easily discover restrooms around them and

even provides an emergency locator for those urgent moments that maps

the user immediately to the closest place of relief. Bathrooms can be

selected based upon quality, distance or feature (i.e. changing

table). Once you have settled in-stall, the app becomes your personal

curated bathroom reader. The app's Read function lets you engage your

social feeds (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) or other content

including ESPN, BBC World News and other sources from a broad variety

of content verticals and areas of interest. Flushd also features

content from Flushd's physician co-founders, Jessica Edwards, a board

certified gynecologist, and Marc Richman, a board certified urologist,

who will be blogging on men and women's bathroom related health

issues.

Upon completing the relief experience, the user can review and rate

the bathrooms and share tips with other likeminded Flushd users. The

app then shows the user their personal potty statistics via the app's

Analyzer function. You can analyze your bathroom habits and keep track

of your #1's or #2's, the time of day you most often visit the

bathroom and which of the restrooms you frequent or favor.

Users can also list private bathrooms and share those publicly if they

desire to help expand access to restrooms and create a community of

shared resources.

"Bathroom behaviors are usually a pretty solid indicator of your

overall health," explains Marc Richman, Flushd Co-Founder and COO, "We

wanted to be able to lead a candid and open dialogue about health

issues people may normally find embarrassing. When this happens,

conditions remain undiagnosed. In situations like these, maybe our

discussions will spark a desire for some of our users to consult a

physician."

The founders also hope to raise awareness of sanitation issues

globally. The Company will be launching a paid version of the app

where the majority of future proceeds will be donated to sanitation

charities globally.

"We are trying to create and support a worldwide 'movement'," added

James Edwards. "Can a funny and novel approach to sanitation issues

change the world one flush at a time? We think so."

About Flushd Flushd is taking a clean and fresh approach to the

bathroom experience to give consumers. Our goal is to create the best

in-stall experience for all downloaders. The app is free and can be

downloaded from the Appstore.
