Tab is the simple way to split a bill among friends. Snap a pic of the receipt and tap your items to claim them. Tax and tip are calculated for you. No more back-of-the-napkin algebra or typing in prices by hand!

Here’s how it works:

- Take a picture of your itemized receipt. Tab automatically detects all the items and prices.
- Select which items each person ordered. Everyone that has Tab on their phone can join onto the bill and select their own items - the app keeps everything synced in real-time.
- Multiple people can select the same item if they shared it.
- Tax and tip are automatically divided proportionally.
- If it's someone's birthday, you can split their total evenly among everyone else.
- Settle up within your group using integrated Venmo or by recording a cash payment.
- View and share detailed summaries of your past bills

Good, could be great


I recently used this app for the first time and was able to split a bill between seven people fairly easily and give them their total. I had a question come up later but could not get back to the details to verify that we had split the bill correctly, adding some audit trail would be really useful in this situation. Additionally, another great feature would be to be able to send out, via text or email, an itemized receipt to each of the bill participants. The people I regularly split large bills with have a wide range of comfort with technology, it would be nice to be able to send them something more detailed than just their totals but show them the items selected and their portion of taxes and tip. Asking them to join the bill from their device is way beyond what they would be willing to do. With these two enhancements, this would be the perfect app for my needs.

You're in luck, our next update will include exactly these two changes (along with a bunch of other cool stuff). Stay tuned!

Still Needed to Use A Napkin


I was so excited to be able to use this app, but unfortunately, I still had to bust out the old pen and paper. One problem that I encountered was with the splitting of items. My friend ordered 2 of one item ($5/item) and I ordered 1 of that same item. All three items were included on the same line and combined into 1 price ($15); however there was no way to assign 2 of an item to 1 person, so we had to create another nickname to assign to her to account for it. In addition, I had difficulty with being able to add the tax—-try as I might to click on the tax line to manually enter the number. In the end I just evenly split the amount amongst our party (even though that’s not accurate). One thing that I thought would be really helpful was if there was a tutorial (that wasn’t real time) or FAQ section—-unfortunately, the only way you can try the app out/learn how to use it is when you actually have a bill to use.

Sorry to hear you had some difficulties using the app. Rest assured, there are solutions to each of your issues! If you need to divide a line item into separate items before assigning, just swipe left on the item and tap the "divide" icon. (In your example, you would just divide the $15 grouped item into three individual items and then assign two to your friend and one to yourself). Similarly, to add or edit tax, swipe left on the tax line and tap the "edit" icon.

We've tried to make the tutorials that appear during your first bill as clear as possible, and they do illustrate the various swiping actions, but your idea of some static help/FAQ section is a great one. We'll look into it!

Must-Have App


This app has changed everything. Gone are the days of getting stuck tipping way more than you owe because your friends were ordering top shelf cocktails and you were drinking water and at the end you just split tip and tax. It's so fast, so easy, and takes all the awkwardness out of telling everyone what they owe at the end of a meal. Being able to split things, to break up items that servers group together.. it's like the app developers have thought of everything.

The ONLY qualm I have with tab is that the bills disappear after a bit. Would really help the morning after a night out to be able to review receipts from the night before. Other than that, WOW. Amazing.

Thanks so much for the review - we're glad you're enjoying the app :)
Regarding expanded functionality around past bills, that's actually in the works as we speak. Stay tuned for our next big update!
