Combine the best of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the potential of stories to be told in the Star Wars galaxy, and maybe we’ll get what we wanted all along. Why did Star Wars fail at the end? How did The Mighty Thor go from meh to must-see? Here’s why Taika Waititi is the perfect choice to make things right.

Google Flutter

Weekly progress diary on RunPee:NX
We are rebuilding the RunPee app from scratch using Google Flutter. Here’s a brief report on our weekly progress:

Progress has been slower than I’d like this week, primarily due to my unfamiliarity with Flutter  — I’m not close to being fluent in it yet. The existing RunPee app is written in Actionscript/Flex. I’ve been working with those for over 13 years and I know them really well, so coding goes fast. Now that I’m learning a new language, I have to stop and pause frequently just to look up simple things.

But that’s how it goes when learning something new.

What’s most crucial is the code I’m writing is rock solid. Of course, no developer ever wants to have bugs in their code, but we all know bugs will happen.

However, I’m working on the real fundamentals of RunPee:NX right now, like loading movies from the local database, updating the local database with movies from the server; things like that. These things have to be perfect: meaning they can’t fail under any conditions. So it takes a lot of testing and trying to find ways to break it, so that the new app is built on the right foundation.


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 OnWard1917, 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.
