Tip Check Tip Calculator FREE app review: a free and easy-to-use tip guide and calculator



If you’ve ever found yourself in a situation where you just can’t for the life of you figure out how much of a gratuity to leave in a bar, café, or restaurant, then this is iPad app will almost certainly prove to be a must-have addition to your app collection.

The best iPhone apps for tipping

I’ve reviewed a handful of bill splitter and tip calculator apps over the past year or so, and while most of them are more or less carbon copies of each other, there are certainly some standout examples that are somewhat apart from the competition.

I would say that Tip Check Tip Calculator FREE is a solid addition to this genre, and should provide you with all of the basic tools you need to easily calculate how much of a tip to leave when the situation next arises.

Easily Calculate Tips in the United States

I should probably begin this review by pointing out that Tip Check Tip Calculator FREE - The Mobile Gratuity Guide! is aimed at a U.S. audience.

The best iPad apps for tipping

I’ve traveled to different countries and have found that the customs on tipping vary greatly, but it’s obviously a given in the United States so it’s definitely useful to have a tool like this at your disposal.

This app features a rather pleasant looking interface which has a wooden appearance to it and is definitely more attractive than some of the other developments I’ve seen in the same category. The layout is also very clear, making calculating tips a very self-explanatory process.


"I Only Ordered the Salad!"

The tip calculator also offers a cool feature in that you can choose between Fair, Good, and Excellent to determine what percentage tip you leave, reflecting how satisfied you are with the quality of the waiting service overall.

What’s more, Tip Check Tip Calculator FREE also features an integrated bill splitting feature which you can use to easily calculate who needs to pay what when you wine and dine in a large group of people. This is great for saving arguments over who ordered the filet mignon!


Pros and Cons


  • A free and easy-to-use tip guide and calculator for the United States
  • Choose a tip percentage based on the quality of the waiting service you received
  • Round tips to the nearest increment if required
  • Use the bill splitter to easily calculate who should pay what when dining with a group of people
  • Features an attractive wooden-style interface which makes the app a pleasure to use



  • There is nothing negative to say about this app


Final Words

I really like the way the developer of Tip Check Tip Calculator FREE - The Mobile Gratuity Guide! has combined tip calculating functionality with a bill splitter, as this actually makes similar apps quite redundant.

This is a great iPad app so be sure to check it out if you’re in the market for an easy way of calculating tips and splitting bills.
