Gotta pee?

You're at the movie theater watching a good flick. Crap! Shouldn't have drank that entire extra large soda so soon. You gotta go and you gotta go bad, but you don't want to miss a good part in the movie. Now there's RunPee. RunPee (for iOS, Android & Windows Phone) claims to list the best times in movies for you to go to the bathroom so you don't miss anything good. You can start a timer at the beginning of the movie and the app will vibrate your phone to silently alert you of the good pee times. It includes a synopsis of the scene you skipped out on so you know what's going on.

It'll also tell you if there is an extra seen during or after the end credits.

They've also integrated RottenTomatoes, IMDB, facebook, twitter, and reviews from other RunPee users.


I know it sounds like it, but I am not affiliated with this app in any way. I just thought it was a unique concept and a pretty cool idea. The one major problem I see with it is that it (inadvertently maybe) encourages its users to use their smartphones during the movie. They might be looking to see when the best time to go is or to read the synopsis of the scene they missed. This is something I'm sure most of us do not want. We don't see a lot of movies at the theater, so I haven't decided if I'm going to try this or not, but I still think it's a good idea. It may only be $1, but I hate spending it on an app I never use.
