Also called iTip on the iPhone’s home screen, Simple Tip Calc (Free) from Uncouth Software is, as its name would suggest, an extremely minimal application. Its black and white one-screen interface offers fields for entry of the bill total and tip percentage; hitting a large “show me the money” button calculates the tip amount and grand total, which appear below the button. Unfortunately, that’s it: there are no check splitting features, no way to add tax, and no frills on the interface, which is quite amateurish. A complete redesign and the inclusion of the above features would go a long way to better this application, which is currently only demo-quality software. 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.
