Sporting perhaps the most spartan interface of any tip calculator available for the iPhone and iPod touch and offering only bare functionality, Tipper (Free) from Siddharth Ram more resembles the result of a tutorial work-through than a real application. A single text field allows the user to enter the bill amount, and a large button below that calculates the tip. Light blue squares jutting from a large blue bar show the tip amounts and total amounts for 10%, 15%, and 20% tips, with the text appearing to the extreme left side of its given area. Given how little this program actually does, it’s hard to make any improvement suggestions beyond “start over,” but a better interface, user selectable tip percentages, tax calculation, and bill splitting would be a start. iLounge Rating: F.


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.
