Many consider the RunPee app “the” essential movie app, because we tell you when to Run and Pee during a movie so you don’t have to worry about missing the best scenes. Peetimes are — and always will be — our core feature, but the app also does so much more. We’ll get to the whole lot more part in a moment. Right now you’re probably wondering, seriously? Peetimes? How’s this kind of weird movie magic even possible?

When the RunPee app starts, you are presented with the Movie List Screen — a list of the new releases currently in theaters.

We add all wide release films each week (about 160 movies a year) — almost always on opening night, and sometimes earlier.

Tap on the flick you’re interested in and you’ll see the Movie Info Screen (below). You’ll find many of the ancillary features of the RunPee app. For now, let’s tap on the big button at the top: Press for Peetimes to…


RunPee Movie Info Screen

This is what you’re here for: to find out the best time you can run and pee during a movie. These are called Peetimes.

Let’s take a closer look at exactly what a Peetime looks like.

RunPee Peetime Detail

Here’s a Peetime starting precisely at 54 minutes and 20 seconds into the movie: when you hear the line, “Might I introduce myself. I am C-3PO. Human cyborg relations.” That scene is your Cue that thePeetime has begun. (We do our very best to make sure these cues are non spoilery.)You have four minutes and 15 seconds to take care of business or refresh your drink, and along the hallway you can tap on the Peetime and read a detailed, but brief, Synopsis of what you missed. That way you can return to your seat, ready to enjoy the rest of the movie — without feeling lost.

If you’re thinking: geez, I’m going to forget this Cue during the movie, then don’t worry — because we have you covered. The RunPee app has a built-in Timer to remind you of each upcoming Peetime.


RunPee Timer

30 seconds before each Peetime, you will get a notification/vibration on your phone, so you’ll know it’s now time to keep an eye/ear out for your Cue to get up and slip out. What could be better?

Actually, I know what could be better: if the RunPee app also informed you what, if anything, there is to see during the End Credits. And if those scenes are worth waiting for. Wouldn’t that be great? Wait: RunPee does this too! We call this bonus feature “Anything Extra.”


RunPee Anything Extra

(What counts as anything extra? Good question. Read more here.)

Movie Info - spend PeecoinThe RunPee app has a lot of additional benefits to help improve your movie-going experience, but before we get to that, you may have seen Peecoins in some of the pictures above…and you’re wondering: Great, just how much is this going to cost me? The answer is: nothing!

You can use the RunPee app for free if that’s what you would like. You have the option to view short video advertisements in the app. Three quick ad views = 1 Peecoin. If you don’t want  to bother with ads, you can purchase Peecoins in bundles of 10 for $1 — up to 40 Peecoins at a time. One Peecoin = one movie, always. Either way, the choice is up to you.

(Read more about Peecoins and supporting the RunPee Family and app.)

We mentioned in the beginning that there’s a lot more to the RunPee app than just Peetimes and the Anything Extra details. Here’s a breakdown of some additional useful/fun features we think you’ll enjoy.
