Imagine a lovely scenario. You are out with a new date who you have been wooing for years; you are enjoying a good meal and a tense but interesting conversation. The lighting is right and the red wine is getting to you a bit – but not too much, you are still in control. The date comes close to a close and you call for the check only to realize that there is the issue of ‘the tip’. You would like to make it 25% but your head isn’t calculating too well on account of the red wine (remember the red wine?).
It is easy when calculating a 10% tip; all you do is move the decimal one place to the left but with 25%? Seeing as you do not want your date thinking you are a cheap skate? What do you do? Luckily there is a smart phone with you and in it there is a tip calculator app could come in useful. So here is a collection of the tip calculator apps for iPhones and android available in their respective app stores.

Best Tip Calculator Apps 2017
1. Q-Tip Tip Calculator
Another app which does the tip calculating job in an easy, no-nonsense manner is the Q-Tip Tip calculator. All it requires is to input the total bill and the percentage. Once that is done, it spits out the tip amount. It could also work in reverse a percentage calculator which could help in situations where we are calculating percentages and not the percentage amount.
We are going to kick off with tipper (which is more popular for the Android community). This tip calculator app is one of the simple ones around. It does a neat job and nothing more. It is also good because it requires no extra permissions from your phone (unlike every other app out there –name it) as it contains no ads (unlike every other free app in the market). It comes in handy, due to the fact that is a simple tip calculator, one can pretend to be checking the time and get the tip sorted out in seconds.
3. Tip Check
With this app, you can quickly figure out how much money you should leave for the waiter as a tip. Tips should be between 10%-15% for drinks and 15%-20% for food (thank me later fro that information). Moving on, it comes with an easy input calculator, US and International tip guide, as well as the ‘bill split’ feature. The wood-like brown interface goes a long way in adding to its design too.
The name of this app is catchy. It explains itself in a cool way. The gratuity app comes with an easy to use interface that allows you to enter the bill amount with a keypad, then choose the percent you want to tip the waiter, as well as the number of diners you are splitting the tip with.

5. Tippy Tipper
For many users, this is the best tip calculator out there. It has nice graphics though it is built on a black and grey theme. It features a landscape mode which has an effect on the keyboard as it tends to increase in this mode, there are many preset options, but still it is comes with a lot of ease to the user. It also includes a sliding bar, or buttons to choose the tip percentage. The usercan exclude the tax rate for tip calculation.
6. Best Tip Calculator
This app is not as widely used as others but it is worth a review. It is good on the interface with some nice graphics; it also features a ‘shake to reset’ and ‘bill splitter’. Other features include being able to rate how well a waiter served your table and …wait for it – Sound. Yes you can turn the sound on and off.
7. Tip Calculator – INFOLIFE
This free tip calculator app actually has a 4.6 out of 5 rating so we are guessing it is pretty good. Though not as ‘pretty’ as some other tip calculator apps on this list (considering interface), it has got a nice big keyboard and can also help in calculating taxes, split bills, and has no ads.
8. Tip Calculator by Trade Fields
There is an extra feature about this tip calculator app and it is not the fact that it has a huge keyboard (it has a huge keyboard which is helpful), it allows one to divide the bill among friends as well – isn’t that awesome? The free version has Ads but they are not what we’d complain about. There is a paid version however where the ads are removed.
9. Tip Me
This app is simple and intuitive. It is ad free so again, no extra permissions are needed from your phone. And it has got some nice graphics. The features are impressive which include a ‘shake’ to reset the calculator, a module to split the bill, and pre/post tax amounts. What more could a person ask for in a tip calculator app?
10. Close the Bill tip Calculator
This is one powerful tip calculator app with awesomely beautiful graphics, it features a module where you can choose to split equally, or each one pays for what they ordered before you move on to amounts, percentage of tip, etc. This app has not been rated by many people but that doesn’t make it bad, just not as well-known as others.

Maybe not a date, it could be a night out with friends or a private party at the office, we should always leave tips for the waiter. If you are using a coupon code, then calculate the tip as though you paid without those discounts. One of the most important things to do is to check the bill in case there is a service charge added. If there is, then there is no need for an additional tip (again thank me later). The point is we never know where we would find ourselves so we need to be prepared and the job is always faster with one of these wonderful apps nearby.
