Tippy is a simple tip calculator for iOS and Android.
Tippy is my personal project. I use these sort of utility apps everyday. The reason I designed Tippy was that I had trouble finding a decent tip calculator. The ones out there were either not fully functional or just complicated. There were just too many bells and whistles and I wanted something simple. I should be able to split and calculate tips in manner of seconds. I literally wanted it to be a three step process.
How does it work?
That's rhetorical. It literally is a simple three step process. Just the way you would think about the bill:
1. What's the amount?
2. How much (%) do I want to tip?
3. How many people am I splitting this with?
I went through a lot of variations for this—simple to heavily featured. At one point, there was also an option where the users could break down the bill to who would pay more or less depending on what they got. However, that was getting away from the goal of keeping it simple and fast. At the end, I ended up keeping it straightforward with three things—amount, tip percentage and number of people the bill would split between.
Some eye candy...mmm
As I mentioned, it is a super simple, clean and straightforward app. No walkthroughs or annotations are needed as a guide. When you get the bill, just put in the information you have and that's it! You're done within seconds. You do, however, get a few extra colors that would let you customize your look the way you like it. Not that you need to but who doesn't like a little change now and then ;)
