The Tip Calculator was my first real experience with writing applications for Android. It’s VERY basic, and has a couple of flaws, but it was a nice gentle introduction into developing with Android. When I submitted my application, there was only one other tip calculator around. Now, I think there’s probably at least a half dozen! It’s one of the easiest concepts to develop, so that’s why myself and others built that first.
As of today, Tip Calculator has over 43,000 installs, with a rating of 4/5 stars, so I guess most folks get on with it alright! Below are some screenshots, as well as a brief description of the application.
What is it?
Tip Calculator is a very basic application to find out a tip value for a group of people. It assumes that a bill is split evenly amongst all diners (this isn’t always practical, I know).
Where is it?
You can find it in the Android Marketplace under ‘Applications > Finance’.
How much is it?
Free. Always was, and always will be.
How about updates?
I have some updates for this application, but I haven’t had time lately to test and deploy them. Look for some cool things around mid-late January 2009!
