RunPee year in review 2011

RunPee movies 2011

2011 was a big year for RunPee. I’ll give you a quick synopsis of RunPee history for those of you who aren’t current. I developed the site back in Summer 2008. The site was left for dead until it got some media attention during Spring 2009. At that point I partnered with RockSoftware to build an iPhone app. They built and maintained the app while me and my family continued to see all the movies to get peetimes.

This past Spring my agreement with RockSoftware ended and control of all of the apps reverted to me. I rebuilt the app from scratch and launched the Android version on June 27th and iPhone version on July 20th.

Since then the Android app has over 29,000  installs and the iPhone app over 45,000.

Water drinkers unite

Run pee is the best app for people who find themselves needing to pee a lot but also not wanting to miss any action. The app gives you the best times to use the bathroom during a movie while also telling you when to leave and which lines to listen for! It not only gives you the time you should go pee, but it also explains to you what is happening during the break. I helped I use this app every time I go to the movies now. My god father recommended this app to 5 years ago and it’s been in my phone ever since! Highly recommended.

  1. Harry Potter: Deathly Hallows-2
  2. Twilight: Breaking Dawn-Part 1
  3. Captain America: The First Avenger
  4. Rise of the Planet of the Apes
  5. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
  6. The Help
  7. The Muppets
  8. Mission Impossible-Ghost Protocol
  9. Transformers: Dark of the Moon
  10. Cowboys & Aliens

I think the two big movie surprises this year had to be Rise of the Planet of the Apes and The Help. They did well here on RunPee finishing at #4 and #6 and according to box office numbers they finished the year at #9 and #11 respectively.

Lots of movies to see

Obviously it was a busy year for me and the family seeing movies. Everyone should give RunPee Sis a big thanks. She saw 51 movies this year. I chipped in with 41 movies, RunPee Mom saw 23.

The good news for those who like to see movies on opening day. RunPee Mom and I will be moving from the West Coast to the East Coast – Florida – in a few months so we’ll all be able to see movies earlier on opening day.

With the next update to the mobile app I’m going to ad a little feature that might help those of you who like to see movies on opening day: the ability for me to leave a custom message for each movie letting people know what time we plan to have the peetimes available.

Plus I’m working on adding a movie trivia game to the app so you’ll have something to do while waiting for your movie to start.

Next year should be bigger and better for RunPee. Right now the app really doesn’t make a dime so my goal for next year is to find a way to make enough money to at least pay for the movie tickets I purchase – without charging for the app.

So keep spreading the good word about RunPee. Remember, a bladder is a terrible thing to hold. 🙂

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Androidor iPhone) when you go to the movies. We have Peetimes for all wide release films every week, including Civil War, Monkey Man, Godzilla x Kong: The new Empire and coming soon The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, and Fall Guy and many others. We have literally thousands of Peetimes—from classic movies through today’s blockbusters. You can also keep up with movie news and reviews on our blog, or by following us on Twitter @RunPee. If there’s a new film out there, we’ve got your bladder covered.
