Did you ever sit squirming in the movie theater, because you needed to run to the restroom but didn't want to miss an important scene?
Now there's an app to help you out. It's called RunPee! RunPee lets you call up the movie you're watching and the app will tell you when is a good time to go to the restroom, how long you have, and even tell you what happens while you're gone.
