Southern California –
RunPee.com – the next best thing to a pause button at the movies – has an iPhone application you can download, reminding you when it’s “safe” to hit the restrooms during new cinema flicks. Now, Android cell phone users don’t have to feel left out of the crowd. RunPee now has an Android RunPee Application to rival the one currently enjoyed by iPhone users.
Dan Florio, owner and creator of RunPee.com, says, “Each movie has a couple scenes that are not crucial to the plot, that you can safely miss and still follow the storyline when you sit back down. Android users have been clamoring for their own version of the popular iPhone RunPee app. We are happy to report it’s being created as I speak. We expect to roll out the Android RunPee app by Mid-August or September. ”
Florio created the website and app to help people enjoy their movie going experience, quipping, “Because a bladder is a terrible thing to hold.” He came up with the idea during the 3-hour run time of Peter Jackson’s King Kong, where he said he wished someone could have told him when to duck out from the movie and, well…run pee. Since then, Florio has seen a lot of movies, paying closest attention to the parts that are okay to miss. The Global Mail reports, “Florio looks for scenes that can easily be summed up in words “like a long car chase” or (are) simply so unexciting they can be recapped without sacrificing drama.”
These days, RunPee is universally lauded as a novel and important new Internet innovation. Comedy Central calls it “the solution to cinematic urination.” CNET hails RunPee.com, “Genius!” while the Calgary Sun (Canada) notes, “it’s taken off to become an online and pop sensation.” Entertainment Weekly, KNBC, the Wall Street Journal, NPR, Fox News, Boston Herald, the New York Times, LA Times, Gizomodo and Lifehacker.com agree that Florio created something brilliant.
Why make a RunPee Mobile App? Florio says it’s in response to literally thousands of inquiries from the mobile-app-savvy crowd. “People don’t want to have to remember to print out their PeeTimes before leaving the home,” he says. “They want to know when to run pee with the immediacy made possible by smart phones, like Android, Noka, iPhone and Blackberry.”
