What's New in Version 1.6.9
Minor bug fixes.
Just ok--incorrect for major cities
So this app is fine if you are in the mid-west, or middle of nowhere...which as a traveler, is that really where you want to go?
Or do you want to see NYC, Boston, San Francisco, Hollywood, or Vegas-baby?
If you hear the siren songs of a major city, this app will lead you to be at best, that typical tourist who doesn't know any better, or at worst, that jerk who under tipped.
So. Bottom line. Add 5% to the numbers here.
The average tip for major cities is 20%. And that's usually AFTER tax priceis added, not before). If you get better to great service, plan on 25-30% tip.
No. I'm not in the customer service industry. I was, back in college, and I can tell you I lived on tips, not salary. And those big cities are super expensive to live in or commute to. I'm now a customer who knows how hard that job is, and how hard it can be to smile at the next guy when the last guy was difficult.
So forget this app, use the simple calculator function that comes with your phone and multiply the bottom line by 1.2 for your total bill or 0.2 for your tip only. It's that easy.
I travel internationally, but haven't paid the buck, yet.
So I can't comment on that. I will likely just check a guide book or google, since I am now suspect of this app's opinion.
Ps if you are the developer and decide to correct the numbers, I will gladly reconsider my rating.
Accurate and easy to use for precise tip amounts. Not just for foods, but for use in other areas/services too (from valet to bell hops to dog grooming). Calculates and provides guidance, suggestions and standards for tipping. Easy to use and understand.
So pretty much I depend on this app when going out in groups to eat but...only thing and sorry to be nitpicking but, it should erase what you last did bc what if you had to come back to it to double check? It erases the whole thing. At least it does for me.
