    Tip Calculator/Bill Splitter Needed

    Yes, I know. There are lots of these and anyone with half a brain can calculate a tip or split a bill into thirds in their head. But bear with me.

    I often travel with several colleagues. We're all on per diems of about $50 day for meals. It's not unusual for six or more of us to share a meal and confront a server who doesn't want to split the bill. So I need a bill splitter and a tip calculator.

    What I want is an app that allows me to enter the number of diners and then to enter and attribute individual items from the bill to each of the diners. The app keeps a running total for each diner and then splits the tip and tax proportionately.

    This ain't rocket science. If I had the time and inclination I could build such an app in Excel. But oddly enough I can't find an app that does this. The best I've found is "TippoBilloSplitamus" that, like others, requires me to total each diner's subtotal unless I want to split the bill evenly.

    I suspect I'm not alone in this. And I suspect others have daily per diems in their travels. It would be a bonus to have the app keep track of my daily meal expenses and let me know how much of my per diem I've used.

    Yes, I know I can use an expense tracker for this. But it would be more convenient if I could use the "bill splitter" app.

    So does anyone know of an app that has this functionality? Or is there an ambitious developer who wants to spend a weekend or two building one?

    Decided to check the iPhone apps. Lots of choices and the first two I looked at did exactly what I need. Get busy developers.

    How about using the search feature....

    split checks | All | By date, Androlib, Android Applications and Games

    Plenty in there to try out

    Golly Gee! What a great idea! Of course, I'd already done an extensive search before posting. And while there are lots of apps that enable you to apply a percentage to a total and divide a bill equally among the diners, I cannot find a single one with the functionality I described. Not for the Android platform, that is.

    Your best bet then, is to contact the developers of the iPhone apps that do just what you want, and ask them if they have any plans to port their apps to Android. They will do it if there is enough interest, especially if they are paid apps.

    Thanks. Clunky interface and as far as I can tell no way to increase font size to make it more than microscopic, but it's getting there.

    Check out BillSplitter by Handymob. It does exactly that!!!
    Let me know your suggestions.

    Is an app necessary? I'd use search/microphone "what is X divided by X" then upon receiving that amount I'd do the same thing and ask what is 20% of X and then you would have it.

    Plus it would be a great way of showing off your Droid to a bunch of people.
