Fare Share Tip Calculator for iPhone Makes Bill Splitting Quick and Easy

February 17, 2010 in Business (E)

[prMac.com] Cupertino, CA - Announcing that Interlocken Technology, the developers of Fare Share Tip Calculator with Receipt, has released their latest update. The app accurately calculates each diner's portion of the total, complete with tip and taxes. Fare Share Tip Calculator even allows for the photo capture and emailing of receipts on devices with a camera.

Fare Share Tip Calculator with Receipt eliminates the typical situation where one person from a table of diners pays more than the others. It also saves the time and trouble of having someone figure out by hand what everyone owes. The app is perfect for those having to submit meal expenses, as it allows for the photo capture of receipts in devices which are camera enabled. These virtual receipts can then be emailed from within the app.

Inspiration for Fare Share Tip Calculator with Receipt came from the son of Interlocken's president, Richard Silverman, "My college-age son is a big iPhone fan. He came home complaining that there was no good app for splitting meals by each person's actual cost, so I thought I'd do something about that." Silverman was careful to include everything necessary, even a flashlight for dimly lit establishments and the option to just split a check evenly between all the diners.

* Two calculators in one: even-split or fair-share.
* Email details and include a photo of the receipt (if device is camera enabled)
* Intelligent rounding algorithm
* Sales tax support
* Flashlight
* Beautiful interface, fast, easy to use
* Currency and decimal support for any Apple Region
* In-App email (email without leaving the App)
* Custom slider controls for setting tip% and number of people in even-split mode

The app is quick and easy to use. All that's required is the entering of the diner's names, along with the cost of their meal. Fare Share Tip Calculator with Receipt takes over from there, formulating the tip according to a percentage and adding the applicable tax. Each person's total is then displayed and can be emailed, along with a photo of the receipt if the device has a camera. For anyone who dines out with others, Fare Share Tip Calculator with Receipt should be invited along. It saves time, frustration and for those who usually get stuck paying for someone else, it saves money, too.
