Feedback needed for potential update to app

I’d love to get your feedback on a possible change to the app. Currently we have information about each Peetime at the top of the Peetime screen where we briefly describe what happens during each scene. That way you’ll have some idea if you’ll be missing an action scene, or character development, or whatever. Would […]

Earth To Echo – movie review

Grade: C+ If it wasn’t obvious from the previews “Earth To Echo” is essentially a retelling of “ET”. But I’m pretty sure it won’t be remembered as one of the classics. This is definitely a kids movie. There’s not much for adults to cling to. The story centers around the close friendship of three boys […]

Transformers: Age of Extinction, movie review

Grade: B- There’s not a lot to say about Transformers: Age of Extinction. (TAOE) It’s a Transformers movie with bits of awesome, a dash of humor, and loads of plot holes. But as we’ve seen before, Transformers can effortlessly jump over plot holes. When comparing TAOE with the other Transformer movies I’d have to put […]

Error 918 on Google Play

Lots of people have been getting the Error 918 when trying to update the RunPee app.  Here’s something that works for most people. Go to Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store > Clear Cache & Clear Data then go to Settings > Accounts & Sync > *your Google account* > click menu […]

Vibration tips

So, the vibration feature on the Timer doesn’t seem to be working. There’s a 99% chance that you have an iOS device. There’s an easy fix for that: get an Android phone. 🙂 Okay, you probably don’t want to switch phones just so that the RunPee Timer will vibrate. Fortunately we can probably fix this […]

Edge of Tomorrow – movie review

Grade: B I love Groundhog Day stories and I’ve been looking forward to this movie since the first time I saw the previews. I was *hoping* it would rank as one of the classic Sci-Fi movies. However, I expected it would just be a good movie that might be worth rewatching again a year from […]

Maleficent – movie review

Grade: B- After seeing what Maleficent – Angelina Jolie – looked like in the previews I had hopes this was going to be a strictly adult oriented movie. That’s not the case. The movie, especially the first 30 minutes, is very much oriented toward children. There is a frequent voice over that tells us what’s […]

X-Men: Days of Future Pasted – movie review

Grade: A Brian Singer (director), and the writers, set the bar sky high in this film. It’s going to be a chore to top this in the scheduled X-Men sequel, due May 27, 2016. The acting was spectacular. All the main characters are reprising roles that they have already performed with aplomb. However, I think Hugh […]

Million Dollar Arm

Grade: B- Million Dollar Arm was a good movie, but I doubt anyone’s going to put it on their list of favorite inspirational sports movies. The performances were all solid. John Hamm especially stood out, which is good since he’s the main character. He does a good job with his expressions saying more than his […]
