Tip Calculator User Guide

The Tip Calculator module is designed for fast calculation and splitting of a restaurant bill on one screen, with an absolute minimum of touches/clicks. Simply enter the bill amount, change the tip rate if desired, and optionally, split the bill 2, 3 or 4 ways. That's it!

To reset the bill amount to zero and start over, touch the close (x) button in the Total Bill area. To remove any splitting of the bill and just calculate the total for one payer, touch the close (x) button in the Split Bill area. You may select the tip rate using the slider at the bottom of the screen, however, the most common tip rates can be selected by just touching one of the sections of the "Quick Tip" bar.

Sometimes splitting the bill is more complicated. For instance, three couples may be sharing the bill and wish to just split the cost evenly, but one couple may have had two extra glasses of wine and another may have had a child's entree that the others should not really have to cover. This is when you should use the Check Split module instead.

Tax & Tip Preferences

New in version 1.1:
If you enter your local tax rate, you may choose to calculate tips either before or after tax. This setting can be accessed using the button at the top right of the screen.

Using the same preferences screen, you may also customize the tip rates available with one tap on the Quick Tap bar, the ways to split a check available with a tap on the Quick Split bar, and the range of the tip slider.
