iPhone/iPod touch: We thought RunPee was a clever site and iPhone app that picks dull movie moments for bathroom breaks. The iPhone app can now store your chosen movies for offline use, and quietly vibrate an alert at break times.
Those two updates were coded in response to user requests for actually using RunPee’s break moments during, you know, the actual movie. Pick a movie, set an alert and time buffer (1-5 minutes before the break), and RunPee will buzz you with a notification that, say, the scientist is explaining, so now’s your chance for relief. With the offline storage, RunPee also becomes a much more useful iPod touch app. Of course, there’s a joke in there somewhere about an app that vibrates when you really need a bathroom break, but we’re far too mature to make it.
The RunPee.com web site has also added support for more languages, and a non-Flash mobile site for scoping out key non-action points right before a flick. Finally, there’s a $1 Android app in the market, and other mobile apps are expected to come along soon. RunPee’s iPhone app costs 99 cents, requires an iPhone or iPod touch.
