This review originally appeared within iLounge’s iOS Gems series within the compilation article, iPhone Gems: All 30 Tip Calculators + Meal Splitters, Reviewed. Additional details may be found in the original article.

Gratuity ($1) by TapeShow is perhaps the most bare bones tip calculator we’ve seen at its price point. It offers wheel pickers for entering the check amount, plus a rating of one to five stars which sets the tip percentage—tapping the info button allows the user to set custom tip percentage values for each star. Gratuity amount and check total are shown at the bottom. And that’s it. No check splitting, or no rounding, and no extras whatsoever. Gratuity was designed to be as simple as possible, but it’s a little too simple. The addition of any of the features mentioned above would make Gratuity a better value, but it’s currently hard to justify spending $1 on an app that does so little. iLounge Rating: D.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
