Tom Gromak of the Detroit News got his hands on our new iPhone RunPee download from iTunes. He neatly sums up why the the RunPee mobile app 1.0 version is so useful for cinematic movie-goers:
“…I feared that using the site to plan ahead would allow me to see spoilers that might ruin the experience. Worse, I worried that firing up the site on my iPhone’s Safari browser in the theater would raise the blood pressure of those sitting around me.
“But the iPhone app is well-thought. Its yellow and off-white text on a black background isn’t likely to get you tossed (or to get popcorn tossed at you). Like the website, you browse for the movie you’re seeing, and you’re presented with a series of times (displayed in terms of minutes into the movie) and cues (usually a line delivered by an actor) telling you when it’s safe to run and for how long. The app includes a timer for tracking your progress into the film. A planned update not yet implemented can even alert you by vibrating the phone as each potential bathroom break approaches.“
He also calls the RunPee website and the entire idea “brilliant”…we like hearing that. And being called genius. It just never gets old. I mean, have you SEEN our In the News page? Yegads; in a good way. And keep those suggestions coming to improve the app for version 2.0 (all updates are free to you, of course).
