Over the past 8 months we have been working hard to completely rebuild the RunPee app using a new framework (Flutter). The app is much faster than the previous version and best of all, it looks amazing. Everyone who’s tested it has had nothing but compliments on the new design. In fact, when I have to go back and look at the current (old) app I think to myself, “How did users put up with this?”
Note: we are currently only testing on Android. We’ll begin testing on iOS very soon.
Steps to join us in testing the new RunPee app:
- Open your current version of the RunPee app on your phone and make sure you have version 5.5.5 (Find the version number by tapping on the menu at the top-right and scrolling to the bottom of the list.)
- If you do not have v5.5.5 then go to Google Play to update. This is important: you’ll need to update the app and start it, then close the app and restart it again. This will store your user ID in a text file that the new RunPee app can read. Without that the Beta version of the app won’t be able to sign you in automatically.
- Now that you have v5.5.5 you can join the Android Beta Test Group.
- Now you can update the RunPee app to v6.0+
What to expect
When the new app starts you’ll see a series of intro screens. When you finish those the app will attempt to download all of your user data from the server. You should be signed in, with all your Peecoins, or Infinity Peecoin, just as you were before.
If you are not automatically signed in then please sign in manually using your email address. Also, if the auto sign-in doesn’t work for you then it would be a big help to me in figuring out why if you could upload your log files. To do that tap on the menu at the top-right of the Movie List Screen, scroll to the bottom and tap on About RunPee App. That will display an Alert popup with information about the app and a link to SEND LOGS. That’s all you need to do.
Either way, I would love to hear from you if the app was successful in auto signing you in or not. I’ve worked super hard to make it as reliable as I can, but nothing is foolproof.
Feel free to poke around in the app a bit and see what’s changed. Things may look different but the navigation is still pretty much the same as always.
Thanks in advance for all your feedback!

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 Drive Away Dolls, Madam Web, One Love, Argylle, I.S.S., and coming soon DUNE part II 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.
Creator and developer of the RunPee app. When something doesn’t work right in the app it’s pretty much his fault. 🙂
Aspiring author. Would like to finish his “Zombie Revelations” trilogy if he could break away for working on RunPee and the cottage he’s building for RunPee Mom.
