IF your iPhone didn’t do enough before, now you have another reason to be thankful for the do-all gadget—the well-being of your bladder.
RunPee, another application for the phone, is solving the tinkle troubles of moviegoers everywhere, especially those fond of sipping extra-large sodas.
The application takes most movies currently in theaters and breaks them down—by bathroom breaks. It allows users to know exactly when they should use the restroom, how many minutes they have to take a break and, best of all, what’s happening on-screen while they’re gone.
So if you’re scared you might not be able to hold it through the newest Harry Potter flick (it is 2½ hours, after all), don’t fret.
RunPee lets you know that you can make a break for the bathroom 45 minutes into the film, or “when we see Harry Potter coaching the Quidditch team.”
You have only four minutes to get to the restroom and back, so make it snappy. And make sure to read the breakdown of what Harry is up to while you’re on you’re way back or (if you’re into multitasking) while you’re on the bowl. Just remember to wash your hands before you go diving back into the popcorn, please.
The application is available in the iTunes store for 99 cents.
And for those who have yet to join the iPhone army, the same services are available at RunPee.com, where users can print out the pee times and accompanying synopsis of any flick before they go to the theater.
