Head-to-Head Comparison of New York City Bathroom Apps Looie and AirPnP

Head-to-head… get it? Bad puns aside, our friends at Bedford + Bowery recently compared and contrasted the two top companies in the private-turned-public bathroom space to see how they fared against each other.

In one corner: Looie, an app granting users access to private bathrooms for a $25/month fee. By signing up for Looie, you’re given a personal key that unlocks restrooms of local businesses partnered with the app. Looie officially launched August 1 and currently only has three loos on offer in the Tribeca area.

In the other corner: Airpnp, a crowd-sourced app, founded in New Orleans, that connects users to individual hosts’ private commodes. Browsing Airpnp, a total of six bathrooms appeared on the map in the lower Manhattan area, of which three were simply public restrooms.

Check out the full comparison for more, but beware of the many bad potty humor puns that lie ahead.
