We’ve all been there. You’re watching a movie in the theatre and things are going great. The film seems quite fascinating and you’re completely enthralled with every moment on that silver screen. Unfortunately, that jumbo-sized Mountain Dew is wreaking havoc on your bladder. What do you do?
Many people already know about the RunPee website. There, you can look up just about any movie and it will tell you when is the best time to take a bathroom break. This is all well and good, but what can do you when you’re actually in a theatre? You could look it up, but the new RunPee app is much more effective.
Available for the iPhone and the iPod touch, the RunPee app can be launched at the beginning of the movie and it will alert you when it’s time to visit the little boys room. You can set the time buffer, giving you a little bit of lead time to get to the washroom.
Better still, at least for the iPod touch people, these alerts work offline too, so you don’t need an Internet connection during the movie. The funny thing is that the alert is silent (out of courtesy for the other moviegoers), so this means you’ll have a vibrating piece of technology jiggling up near your bladder.
