FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RUNPEE.com new iPHONE App – Helps Moms and Kids Handle Bathroom Emergencies during movies without missing important scenes
Southern California – July 15, 2009 — Awesome new website and iPhone application helps moms assure that their children(and they) can take a bathroom break during the movie without missing important elements to the plot.
You may not have a pause button at the movie theater, but with RunPee.com and the new RunPee iPhone application, it is now “safe” to take the kiddos to the movie theater potty at predetermined times. No more emergencies after drinking gallon sodas or that extra large cherry slurpie.
Erin Moore, owner and mommyblogger for ThingsMomsLike.com, says she likes RunPee because she’s “been missing the very best parts of movies for years.” She adds, “I’ve got a 14 and 6 year old and that means two pregnancies, too. [With RunPee] I’ll never miss another plot twist again!”
Dan Florio, owner and creator of RunPee.com says, “Each movie has a couple of scenes that are not crucial to the plot, that you can safely miss and still follow the storyline when you sit back down.”
Florio suggests printing out the PeeTimes for free off the website, and bringing them along to the theater for handy movie break reference, or buying the 99 cent iPhone app from iTunes.
Florio created the companion iPhone RunPee application to help busy moms know *exactly* when to suggest a bathroom break for their young ones. The iPhone app has a timer to let you know when it’s safe to go, how long you have to be gone, and provides plot descriptions of exactly what you are missing that you can read while waiting in the restroom.
Florio said making an iPhone app available was in response to literally thousands of inquiries from the small bladdered among us, plus moms everywhere and tech-savvy smartphone users. Dan says, “People don’t want to have to remember to print out their PeeTimes before leaving the home, and with the iPhone RunPee app you don’t have to. All you so is set the RunPee app to count down at the start of the film to cue the movie goer when PeeTimes begin.”
Once you are in the restroom you can unscramble the “spoiler” to find out what is happening on-screen so you don’t miss anything.
RunPee.com was recently featured on the Today Show, on NPR’s All Things Considered, CNet, the ABC News ReelzChannel, ABC Houston Morning News and the Fox2 News. RunPee hit the front page of Digg and Mashable, and made the cover of LifeHacker.com.
Cinematical.com calls RunPee.com “the #1 #1 site on the Internet” and Wired reports, “Quite frankly, this is genius.”
Moms, Kids and Pregnant Women can Breath Sigh of Relief at Movies
RunPee is a lifesaver for kids and moms because all moms end up missing movie parts while they run pee with the kids. Now you can make plans to go when cued, and you won’t miss anything important, and your kids won’t have accidents. Win-Win for all.
Armed with RunPee, young kids no longer have to try to hold it in, or worse, end up peeing in the theater seats. Now a parent can say to their children, “Jimmy, about 45 minutes into the movie we’re going to take you to the rest room. And here’s what will be happening while we’re away…”
Pregnant women especially can enjoy returning to the theater again. The Dallas Morning News reports, “With even comedies heading into the three-hour ring, now every moviegoer’s bladder (bless your heart, pregnant women; the Web site even has a maternity T-shirt) can breathe a sigh of relief.”
CoolMomPicks even suggests, “If you’re not pregnant but you’ve got the ‘I had three babies’ bladder like me, I’m betting it works just as well for us too.”
