NEW iPHONE APP LETS MOVIEGOERS ENJOY BLOCKBUSTERS WITHOUT BUSTING THEIR BLADDERS,
SAVES VIEWERS FROM MEGA-SIZED SODAS, “MISSING THE GOOD PART” AND POST-MOVIE RESTROOM LINES
LOS ANGELES, Cailf. – July 1, 2009 – RunPee.com today launched an iPhone app version of its handy website that lets moviegoers know when it’s “safe” to run and empty their bladders during a film without missing a key part of the flick. The new RunPee app for the iPhone not only has a timer for every movie that lets film goers know exactly when it’s OK to hit the restroom, but it also gives them a quick summary of what happened while they were answering nature’s call. With the new RunPee iPhone app moviegoers can pop out of the theater knowing the only thing they’ll miss is the pain of “holding it” or the dreaded long line at the restroom at the end of the film. The app which can be downloaded from iTunes for only $1.99 covers all new film releases.
Dan Florio, creator of RunPee.com and the new iPhone app, says, “We’re on a mission to save bladders from blowing up in cineplexes across the nation and this new iPhone app is our trusty tool! Every movie has a few scenes that are not crucial to the plot, that you can safely miss and still follow the storyline when you sit back down. This iPhone app lets users know when the coast is clear so they never have to miss a good part again. Our iPhone app gives moviegoers “immunity” from the effects of mega-sized sodas and flushes away those grueling post-movie restroom lines where you have to wait your turn in pain and avoid awkward eye contact with the 30 other people in the restroom with you. Those lines really piss me off.”
The new iPhone app has a timer that can be started at the beginning of the film that keeps track of the elapsed time during the movie. This way the user can see at a glance how long they have to hold it until the next PeeTime. An update that is already being worked on will give the iPhone a slight vibration a few minutes before each PeeTime just in case the user forgets. Once in the restroom (or at the concession stand), the viewer can read the “spoiler” to find out what is happening on-screen for the few minutes that they are away.
Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.) We always have Peetimes for the latest wide release films, including OnWard, 1917, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc. You can also keep up with the latest movie news and reviews on our blog or by following us on Twitter @RunPee, and liking us on Facebook.
