Pheil: Tired of missing critical parts of movies with bathroom runs? There’s an app for that

Apparently, some people have been driven crazy by a certain repeated experience at the movie theater.

Apparently there is more than a handful of people across the country who have wondered, “Why is it that every time I have to run to the bathroom in the middle of a movie at the theater, I end up missing a critical part of the plot?”

There really is an aptly-named app to help people address this … “problem.”

RunPee (yes, RunPee) is an app designed to let you know the perfect time during any movie to race to the bathroom. It even tells you the amount of time you have to get everything done.

Genius? Apparently so, for some.

For some, it’ll prevent them from missing the most important scenes of a movie again.

Or they could just cut back on their soda intake, which is better for them anyhow.

So there you go. There really is an app for this.
