[prMac.com] Fort Lee, New Jersey - Independent developer Joshua Demori today is pleased to announce the release of iTip Jar 1.01, his first financial application created for iPhone(R) and iPod touch(R). Packaged within iTip Jar you will find four powerful and easy to use tools in one single app: Tip Calculator, Contact Manager, Expense Reporting and an Etiquette Guide. Each tool is designed to provide you with the answers you need, quickly and accurately.

Through the use of graphics, animation and sound effects you will find iTip Jar not only to be functional, but fun to use as well. Simplicity and tight integration with each tool allows the basic user to calculate tips, stay within a shopping budget, and has an easy to use tipping guide with over 100 service professional fields.

Though it doesn't stop there! iTIp Jar provides professional features allowing you to save and email weekly, monthly and yearly expense reports categorized by the company and expense type. It can also be used to verify bill statements, rate any of your stored contacts. Other uses include, use as a percentage or sales tax calculator.

Other Features:
* No annoying advertising
* Tight integration with the AB (Address Book) and syncing of contacts
* Ability to create AB groups using the Contact Manager
* All financial calculations use base-10 arithmetic, preventing calculation errors

Calculator provides a simple to use tip, percentage or sales tax calculator. Trying to keep your shopping trip within budget, no problem, its paper tape feature will do just that. Its interface was carefully designed to provide an uncluttered screen, hiding unnecessary details and settings, which are shown only as needed. Settings are found under it left door, revealed by a simple swiping gesture. Within you can set the tax rate, to use tax (in case tax was already included) and setting it to one of its two operating modes: even or real.

In the EVEN mode your bill is split evenly among all individuals with the results sliding into view under the right door. In the REAL mode the paper tape feature is revealed allowing you to calculate each person's check portion with tax and tip displayed instantly for that user. Easily flip through the results section giving you the total bill's sales tax and tip portion and each person's divided totals. Results can then be saved effortlessly, where they can later be viewed or emailed in the Expense Reporting tool.

Contacts provides you the ability to create groups which are concurrently created as Address Book groups to better help you organize all your contacts within iTip Jar and your AB. On its first use you will be prompted to create 14 suggested groups. (ex. Dinning, Travel...) From there you can easily create new contacts or use existing contacts from your AB without leaving iTip Jar. Then assign that contact a rating, helping you to remember which restaurant was a five star and which one you probably won't be taking that special someone to.

Expense categories are also added here which will be used when saving and viewing reports. Expenses provides three easily navigated reporting views: weekly, monthly and yearly reports to help you see where you spend your money in each category. The results can then be easily emailed in any of the three popular formats: excel, csv, or tab-delimited.

Etiquette provides you, with over 100 service categorized etiquette tips. Divided into 2 sections: POS (Point Of Sale) etiquette for services which are tipped on a regular per use basis, and YEARLY providing you with general tipping etiquette for the end of each year. Each service professional will provide you with suggested information on what to tip, who to tip and how much to tip.
