RunPee's app lets users determine what scene in a movie is boring or dull enough that they can go use the restroom and come back without missing a thing. RunPee gives users a play-by-play synopsis of every scene in the movie, so you can look ahead and determine what is a good opportunity to use the bathroom. Set a timer and get notified during the movie to go without disturbing those around you. When you return, you should be able to continue enjoying the movie without being confused or lost. It's rather handy for anyone who goes to the theater and can't pause a movie.

The timer is running. Don’t worry: You don’t have to use your phone mid-movie and run the risk of being glared at by the people around you who take umbrage at your device’s bright light. You can just set the app’s timer at the start of the movie so that you get alerted via vibration when a Peetime is imminent. It's easy to use and non intrusive to those around you, because come on — no one likes a disturbance in the middle of a dark theater during a movie, right?

While you were peeing

While you were peeing. Each Peetime includes a detailed synopsis of the scene you may have missed while you were relieving yourself, which is often a moment of respite from the drama, action or comedy of the rest of the movie. This is a great service for everyone, because let's face it — some parts of a movie you just don't care for, and it could have been better spent going to the bathroom instead of sitting through and enduring a terribly boring scene while being in extreme discomfort from your bladder.

Full play-by-plays. RunPee's app contains complete synopsis for every scene in the movie, so you can even look ahead and see when a good time to use the bathroom is. When you see an opportune scene, just tap on it to view a full description so you can determine if it's the right break time for you or not. Watch out for spoilers, but it certainly is nice to be able to take a quick break and come back without missing anything important, isn't it?

What is it about?

RunPee lets you look ahead in movies and determine a good opportunity to use the restroom without missing anything when you come back. Just find the spot, set a timer, and the app will notify you when it's time for a bathroom break. You can get up and go without disturbing anyone with a bright screen in the darkness.

For those who...

App Store Description

The RunPee app exists to improve your movie-going experience. The database is updated weekly with the latest movies so you will know the best times to run and pee, without missing the best scenes. Of course, we provide a synopsis with each Peetime, so you will know exactly what you missed while you're gone. There is no other information like this in the entire world. We have over 1,900 movies in our database, and more added every week by our family.

How does it work? The built-in Timer will alert you, by discreet vibration, 30 seconds before each Peetime—so you don't have to worry about bothering the people around you in the theater. Now you can relax and enjoy the movie...without wondering when to take a break. You never have to sit down again and ask, "What did I miss?"

The movie's over... Or is it?
RunPee will let you know, for FREE, and without the bother of any advertisements. We tell you what extra scenes are coming and when, and if they are worth staying for. Lots of people (worldwide!) rely on this feature alone. :-)

Running Late
If you're running behind, our app will tell you what you missed in the first three minutes. Like our Peetimes, this unique information is not available anywhere else.

After 13 years, we're really good at what we do. Our long-time users love us! We think you will too.
