There's an App to Tell You When to Pee During Movies

By - Source: RunPee | B 25 comments

Even delivers synopsis of the first three minutes of movie in case you were running late.

These days it seems there's an app for practically anything imaginable. Prime example: if you're tired of not knowing when to pee during movies, well, there's an app for that.

Entitled RunPee, the Android and iOS app notifies users of the best times to visit the restroom during a movie. The app recognizes the best windows to run to the restroom without actually missing any significant moments in the film.

RunPee vibrates in your pocket to let you know when the appropriate window is due to commence. It even fills you in on what you've missed during the period you were absent.



"We start looking for peetimes about 30 minutes into the movie and we stop when there's only 20-30 minutes left in the movie. For short movies of about 90 minutes there may only be one peetime. But for movies over two hours there may be 2-3 peetimes," the developer said. "Each peetime has a synopses of what happens. So if you do need to run and pee then you’ll be able to come back to the theater knowing exactly what happened while you were taking care of business."

Notable bonus features includes the likes of information on any outtakes included in the movie's credits, a synopsis of the first three minutes of a film if you arrived late, and screenshots that depict information about the movie in question from review/user ratings aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb.

    Pee before you enter the theater and don't drink too much crap like some who drinks a bucket of soda before the movie starts.

    But the bigger question is, does it tell you how to pee...

    The last 20-30 minutes of the movie is usually the best part.

    But what if I don't need to pee but need to sh#t - does it (eh..) handle that too? What about reminding me to breathe? or blink, or, actually, concentrate on watching the damn film!
    ...etc....etc...etc

    The proper time to pee is before the movie starts and after the movie is over. Stop disturbing other people trying to enjoy their hard earned money.

    Lame...I can't use this cool app because my theater won't allow me to use my phone during a movie!

    I think I can figure out my bodily functions without an app. If you need help for this, you shouldn't be a movie and you should be wearing diapers.

    There's where I went wrong! I just let it spray, come what may - no hands required! :)

    There are a couple of theatres near my house that serve alcohol during movies. This would be very handy after drinking a few beer.

    Man, before I got this app it was awful. I never ever knew when to take a tinkle! I would always go at random times hoping it was the time to actually pee...

    wow, no one is defending this?

    so im guessing the consensus is that if you have a crappy bladder or medical problems, dont leave the house and you cant enjoy a movie in a theater.

    1 soda can run through me in less than an hour
    and it its not something i can hold for very long.
    for years i just dont drink anything for a good 3 hours and nothing during a movie
    that means no popcorn either

    i love the theater experience in many movies, but i cant ear or drink during or before and that really sucks, this would honestly be a gigantic help.

    A lot of you seem to be completely missing the point.
