Need A Bathroom Break During the Movie? Runpee to the rescue

Runpee is an app

No circumstance is more dire during a movie that’s really good than a screaming bladder.

The RunPee app takes the guesswork out of this for you. We watch every wide release movie to find the best scenes you can use, if you need to run and pee.

RunPee: app that gives you the best times to run and pee during a movie.

Since many moviegoers are out there watching movies, must pass this curious little app along.

Downloaded from the Google Play store and tested it. Before you can get started in the app you have to send your email address and get a verification code– I’m assuming this is so they can occasionally harangue you to purchase more “peecoins” — it takes peecoins to use to view the times that you can leave a movie and go to the bathroom. Once registering the app you get 2 free peecoins to test it out on your movie of choice. The time it recommended seemed to be good. They must have people watching these movies looking for good places where not much is happening.

Neat service, good idea!

Update 11/23/2019 @ 3:30pm

This runpee.com ad is included inside the verification email — you can buy an “Infinity Peecoin” for $20 USD … yep, that’s an ad.

After making this post, a comment made by Dan (see below) wanted to clarify that the emails are never used to sell you peecoins. See a copy of the verification email I received when signing up through the app. This verification code is required as part of the process, so yes, email is being used to sell you peecoins, at the very least indirectly. I don’t see any problem with this practice, but let’s call it what it is: an advertisement in email.

  1. Hey Todd. Thanks for the review of the RunPee app. I really appreciate it.

    To be completely transparent: we only ask for an email address so that users can keep any Peecoins they earn via ads, or that they purchase, after getting a new phone. I don’t ever email people with requests to purchase Peecoins.

  2. Thank you for stopping by, Dan, and clarifying. There is a pretty good sized ad for purchasing peecoins in the verification email. I don’t mean to impugn you efforts, but let’s be honest that you do email people about buying peecoins. Perhaps not directly through ad campaigns, but a verification email with ads like the one which I’ll update in the post shortly, is pretty much evidence that you are using it, at least indirectly, as a marketing tool.

    Not saying there is anything wrong with that, you deserve to make money for the amount of time spent watching for these perfect breaks.
