About & Pics
The RunPee app exists to improve your movie-going experience. The database is updated weekly, whenever wide-release films open in theaters -- to tell you 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 1,300 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, when a Peetime is coming -- 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 (world-wide!) rely on this feature alone. :-)
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.
3D User Poll
See what other users think about the 3D quality of a movie, to help you decide if you want to spend the extra cash on the glasses. Some movies really put attention into their 3D...our users tell you if it's just a money-grab.
After 9 years, we're really good at what we do. Our long-time users love us! We think you will too.
Releasing new versions every 2 months, on average.
* Minor bug fixes that mostly apply to new installs
All new MovieMeme feature: draw and write on any movie poster to share with friends.
Fixes a bug where Peecoins could be earned and recorded in the database, but not immediately displayed in the interface.
*Improved UX for the Peeple's Poll: the charts are much easier to interpret.
Bug fix for the built in Timer: using the "Adjust Time" feature caused Peetime notifications to be sent at wrong time.
Improved Social Sharing options.
Alert Peetimes: Get a special alert for Peetimes that may contain torture, animal cruelty, violent sex, etc. Visit the Peetimes screen (any movie) to learn more.
The built in Timer worked pretty good, but there were a few bugs here and there so I rebuilt it from scratch. It looks pretty much the same, but now you see both the time elapsed (on the left) and the time remaining (on the right) of the movie progress bar.
User Movie Ratings: Now you can add *your* movie rating to films you see — and view ratings from other RunPee fans. Of course, the RunPee app takes it one step beyond: see a subset of grades based on fans with the same gender and approximate age as yourself.
The RunPee app now also allows fans using the built in Timer an option to add their expected rating before the flick begins.This way, you can see if a movie is better (or worse) than people expect. This should be most...enlightening... :-)
New sharing options. You can now share the movie posters to your favorite forms of social media: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, even email and SMS.
-Featured Movies: The Movie List now contains a small number, 3-4 max, of featured movies at the top of the list. This way you don't have to scroll to find a popular movie, weeks, or months, after it was released.
-You no longer need to view an advertisement before seeing the Peetimes for a movie. Now *you* choose when you want to see ads.
* Option to subscribe to the RunPee service and remove advertisements.
Removes the ad that displays when the app starts up. (Coming very soon, option to subscribe and remove all ads.)
New and improved ad with a DARK background theme–much less intrusive.
New opening ad that is much darker than previous version.
Fixes a bug that disabled sharing your thoughts, reviews, movie poster, etc., on Twitter. (Sorry, Facebook sharing is still disabled.)
Fixed a bug that disabled sharing on Twitter.
Fixes bug with Timer notification system.
The movie rating (G, PG, PG-13, R) is now displayed next to the movie title. (Go to the settings in the top-right of the Movie screen to enable.)
Ability to adjust the Timer after it has started, just in case you forgot to start it when the movie began.
Improved movie search.
The search results are also improved. Searching for "Avengers" will return: Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Avengers, and Captain America: The First Avenger. So you don't have to remember the exact title of the movie you're searching for. Just a partial title will work.
Fixes a bug on the DVD Alert screen where the email input box displayed black text on a black background -- text is now white.
Fixes a bug with the Timer: restarting the app while the timer is running will return you to the timer screen with the time adjusted appropriately.
The tabs on the Timer screen now indicate if a peetime is "recommended" (green), "emergency" (red), or default (yellow).
The RunPee app checks the remote database for new movies each time you start the app. With this update if your phone is unable to connect to the servers you'll see a screen alerting you to the problem and how best to fix it.
The brief peetime summaries -- example: We recommend this peetime because there is no plot or character development -- are now located with their prospective peetimes instead of being grouped together at the top of the screen.
Two bug fixes:
Local Notifications. If you use the Timer during a movie you're familiar with vibrations that alert you before each Peetime. Now you can also get Local Notifications - default is on - in your status bar before each Peetime. Please check out the Timer Settings and Timer Help screens to learn more.
Google analytics tracking has been added. The tracking is completely anonymous. However, if you wish you can disable it from the Preferences. (Movies> Menu> Preferences)
Fixed bug with 1st 3 minutes.
* Fixes the RottenTomatoes.com screen. (Broke due to an API change.)
* Improved social media integration. Now you can share your feelings about a movie and attach the movie poster to your Tweet/Facebook update.
* Moved the "Tips" info to the movie update screen. Now you'll have something to read while the database is being updated.
* A few UX/UI changes.
* Removed the "Flip to start Timer" feature because it isn't supported on iOS devices.
* Hopefully more bugs fixed than created. :-)
* FYI, there are no ads in this update. There is a sponsor added to the splash screen but you have sit through that while the app starts anyway.
Note: There may be ads in the RunPee app regardless of whether you paid for it or got it for free. The ongoing cost and effort of updating the Peetime database means that a $1 lifetime fee for the app won't work long term. I apologize for not being crystal clear on this in the past but paid apps are not by rule ad free.
* Removes ad shown during app startup for international users.
* Adds "Flip phone to start Timer" feature. This allows you to start the Timer without the phone being awake.
* Redesigned UI for the Movie screen that is more consistent with the recently redesigned Peetime screen.
* Redesign of the Peetimes screen
* Fixed Timer Vibration (Sorry, I accidentally disabled it during the previous update.)
Another try and fixing the iOS 7 status bar overlay issue. This fix adds a 22 pixel gap at the top of the app for ALL versions of iOS.
Fixes bug in iOS 7 where status bar overlays the top of the app.
* Minor UX enhancements.
* Adds new "Get Email Alert" feature when a movie is released to DVD/Blue Ray.
* Improved UX
The ONLY change is to enable fullscreen on the iPhone 5.
The ONLY change to this version is to add support for the new iPhone 5 screensize.
Adds specific "Start Timer Cues" to the Timer screen for new movies. No more guess work on when to start the Timer.
