Here's a useful app that helps you calculate a meal tip, split amongst people, and also quickly track the expense. It also has an option to calculate the tip taking into consideration the tax rate and provides ability to quickly round the tip amount or total. It's really easy to use: numeric pad to enter the values, swipe to round up, shake to reset.
Besides the convenience and ease of use, this calculator could save you money:
- You can specify the tax rate so that the calculator is calculating tip on the pre-tax bill (why tip on the tax amount as well?)
- If you are splitting the bill with a large group of friends, it will prompt you to double check you bill to see if the tip has already been included (some restaurants automatically do that for large parties).
Here's a quick tour:
