The RunPee app’s built in Timer is one of our proudest features. It really makes using the app super simple and discreet.
All you need to do to use the Timer is select a movie from the Movie List, which takes you to the Movie Info Screen; from there press the View Peetimes for… button to get to the Peetimes for that movie. (See image below.)
When you press the Timer button, you’ll briefly see a screen that will ask if you want to input your Movie Expectation Vote. This is up to you. You can add it, or skip it. Either way, you’ll end up on the Timer screen that will look something like the image below.
At the very top, you can see we tell you precisely when to start the Timer. In this instance: when the Sony logo fades out.
Once the Timer starts, you’ll see a screen like the one below.
Now you can put your phone to sleep, and sit back and relax! The RunPee app vibrates (if you have the settings correct) about 30 seconds before each Peetime, giving you an alert to look out for the Peetime Cue. Easy peasy.
Troubleshooting: If you are not receiving the Peetime notifications on your phone
1st — The RunPee app can only request that your phone’s operating system vibrate your phone. Make sure your phone is set to allow vibrations. We recommend that you put your phone into Airplane Mode during a movie. The RunPee Timer notifications will work without Internet access, and this way you won’t get any other notifications during your movie.
2nd — Make sure the RunPee app has the proper permissions set to communicate with your phone’s operating system. Namely, your phone needs to allow vibrations and notifications.
3rd — Make sure your phone doesn’t go into Battery Saver mode. I know, easier said than done. If your phone’s battery is running low then it will have to do what it does to save juice, but Battery Saver mode may disable the vibrations on your phone.
