I am not very good at mathematics. Whenever I visit restaurants, things like calculating bills, taxes and giving tips are always a problem for me. I find a solution now.
iTip Jar is a great tool for the guys like me. It is an easy to use calculator app for iPhone. Let us see some of its features. After launching this app, users will get a calculator, which can calculate the total expense after adding tips, taxes etc., It shows a default tax rate and users can edit it by opening a virtual door at the bottom of the screen.
I decided to try it. I entered my bill amount as $56. After giving 15 percent as tips for the bartender and 7.25 percent as taxes, it shows my total expense as $68.4. I don’t think it is a big amount for a day at bar, isn’t it? You don’t have to worry, if you are not sure about the tipping etiquette. It will suggest you. For example for a cocktail waitress you may pay around 15 to 20 percent as tips. For a manicurist you can pay anywhere between 10 percent to 50 percent.
It has a dedicated section called Etiquette for tips suggestions. It lists all the helpers at various places, with the name and description of their position. In Expenses section users can find weekly, monthly and yearly expense reports. They can also make it to mail this report. There are several groups like Dinning, Education, Entertainment in Contacts section and contacts can be added to these groups. Users can also add a group to this section.
iTip Jar helps me a lot to deal with money now. It calculates the amount quickly and accurately. I think $0.99 is not a big amount for a Finance app without ads.
