ACTGratuity 2.1: iPhone Tip Calculator with Support for Tax and Liquor

March 7, 2010 in Travel (E)

[] Luxembourg, Europe - Houdah Software today is pleased to announce the release of ACTGratuity 2.1, its full-featured tip calculator for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. ACTGratuity was first released the day the iTunes AppStore opened its doors. ACTGratuity aims to impress with its feature set, ease of use and undeniable cuteness.

Version 2.1 sports an all new interface and looks so cute you can't resist. Most importantly though, it is easy to use and yet loaded with all the features you need. ACTGratuity 2.1 adds support for "Liquor": an amount you want to be excluded from tip calculation. E.g. liquor, wine bottles, surcharges, and more. ACTGratuity 2.1 also adds built-in documentation. The key message here is: check total includes tax and liquor. Enter the full amount charged.

The bill shows 5 rows: Check, Liquor,Tax, Gratuity & Split. When a row is selected, you can key in values using the keypad. Otherwise it just displays current values. Usually you just need to key in the check amount. That row is selected by default. You enter the full check amount. ACTGratuity subtracts liquor and tax, computes gratuity and then splits the grand total by the number of guests.

The 3 lower rows show 2 values. When not selected, the value to the right is the computed value. The smaller value to the left is the value or percentage you have entered. Once you select a row, the configurable value moves to the right so you can key it in.
Hint: The waiter's body acts as a vertical slider to adjust gratuity. Watch his facial expression change with the gratuity percentage!
