What does that sort of publicity do for the RunPee app? Of course it’s difficult to say precisely but there’s no doubt that it provided a huge spike in downloads.

Here’s what the downloads on iOS looked like before the segment.

This app is the best wingman for a movie goer, especially when you have to go. It even has a vibrating timer that is spot on for those ‘go times’ some of us need! There are many other features that are wonderful. It even lets you know when the kill scenes are coming up for the people and animals for those who may have sensitivities to that type of content. The staff go above and beyond!

It’s hard to read but that’s a 914% increase over the previous Wednesday. To be fair that can’t all be attributed to the TODAY Show. Since The Hobbit has come out app downloads have been running a bit higher than normal. But I think it’s safe to say that the publicity added at least 1,000 downloads to the norm.

Android downloads run consistently at about 10% of iOS downloads. Why? I have no idea. There are more Android devices out there so you would think that Android downloads would be higher. Apparently Androidians are reluctant to download apps. If that every equalizes then I stand to see a huge push in download numbers.

At any rate I made over $1,000 from the RunPee app yesterday – after Apple and Google get their 30%. Not bad for a day that I spend sitting in a theater re-watching The Hobbit in IMAX 3D.

Oh, and if Peter Jackson is reading this: Please keep making LONG movies! It really helps my app download numbers. 🙂

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 Fly Me To The Moon, Despicable Me 4, A Quiet Place: Day One, Inside Out 2 and coming soon, Twisters, Deadpool & Wolverien 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.
