With the Oscars rapidly approaching, I’m sure many of you have ventured to your nearby cinema in order to catch some of the nominees in their finest form. However with the likes of Zero Dark Thirty, Les Misérables, and Django Unchained all running up a time of 160mins, when do you have time to slip out to the toilet?
New app ‘RunPee’ might just be the answer! The app which is available for iOS and android can be purchased for as little as £0.69/$0.99. ‘RunPee’ is an app that was created by Dan Florio. Dan, his mother and his sister are the only people who contribute to this great app. The idea of it, is to inform people of the time during a movie when you can quickly escape to the toilet. Dan and his family watch the films as soon as they’re released, they then make note of the ‘boring parts’ during a film and then write up the ‘peetimes’.
Many of us like taking snacks and a drink to the cinema, but if like me, you always seem to need the loo, then this app is most definitely for you. There is nothing more heart-breaking than missing the end of a great film. The app has a movie database with all the latest films on it and usually offers you two ‘peetimes’ during the film to choose from. You can either use the timer on it (which you set for the peetime you want) or you can just follow the cue. The app tells you how long you can be gone for and also fills you in on what you’ve missed during your time away. Additionally, if you’re late to the movie, you can read a synopsis of the first few minutes.
A bonus feature, is the app lets you know if there are any extra scenes after the credits – This would’ve helped me a lot when I went to see Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2, rumours on the internet said there was a scene at the end, I waited until the
veryend of the credits, to be disappointed because there was no extra scene!
As you can imagine it gets expensive seeing 2-4 films every week, so do your bit and download the app at £0.69/$0.99, it’s a bargain and the No.1 App for movie lovers; with IMDB integrated you can’t go wrong! Visit http://runpee.com/ to find out more.
