No Need to Guess

With the Fancy Tips app there is no need to make guesses when it comes to tipping and it can save you from some rather embarrassing situations by either not tipping or tipping an inappropriate amount. The app supports tipping in 240 regions and countries and is able to automatically detect your location. The way the app works is that it calculates the tip amount based on the total of the bill. You don’t even have to figure out the percentage or dollar amount, the app does all the math for you. It is meant to help you with service-based tipping so things like a waiter, a taxi driver, a hairstylist, etc.
