An app a day: RunPee
Ever missed that crucial part in a movie because you simply had to, well, pee? Or worse, sat cross-legged in the cinema too afraid to leave in case you lost the plot?
Californian Dan Florio has. It was while watching the three-hour King Kong movie, which he uncomfortably endured despite an urgent need to go to the loo.
In retrospect he realised he could have missed the boring bug scene and so created RunPee, a website, now an app, of a host of films and their missable parts. The app is available on iPhone, BlackBerry and Android platforms.
Billed as the app that lets your bladder enjoy the movie as much as you do, wags call it the “wiki-pee-dia” for cinephiles with small bladders.
