This may not be news to people who go to the movies more often than I do but it was new to me. I am taking my 13 year old grandson to a movie this afternoon and my daughter alerted me to the Runpee app, an app that alerts you to the best time for a dash to the bathroom during a movie.

I haven't used it yet or even thoroughly researched it, but from what I can tell it allows you to set your phone to give you a couple of warning vibrations and then a final vibration that lets you know it is time to go without worrying about missing any critical scenes or parts of the plot line. It then allows you to read notes about what your are missing while you are gone, hopefully while you are running down the hall rather than when you are actually using the facilities. It also lets you know how much time you have to, uh, take care of business and get back to the theater.
Even if you aren't one who drinks those giant movie drinks this app sounds like it might be pretty handy for the pees-a-lot crowd of which I am a member. For .$99 I may have my grandson download it on our way to the movie. You gotta love technology!
