Fair Share is available!

Fair Share is now available in the iTunes App Store. It isn't showing up in searches yet but you can get to the page directly via this link.

Fair Share allows you to quickly figure out your tip and split your bill when dining out.

While providing a simple interface to allow for fast calculation of simple tips, Fair Share also can help you easily divide the bill and account for the different items your party has ordered.

Fair Share provides two entry modes to suit your personal preference.

In Subtractive mode, exception items (such as drinks or desserts) can be assigned to members of your party and the remainder of the bill is automatically split evenly.

In Summation mode, you input and assign all of the items in your bill and the subtotal is calculated for you.

The summary screen reports each person's appropriate share including tax and tip. Group your diners, and a total for each group is also provided.

Standard rounding functions are also available to round each person's share for ease of payment at the table.

Please check out the demo on YouTube to see its features!

Fair Share

Fair Share is my first iPhone app. It is currently undergoing review by Apple.
Fair Share is yet another tip calculator. In fact, the working name was yaTipCalc. But Fair Share also does bill splitting which not very many of the tip calculators out there bother to do.

Hopefully it will be approved in the next few days. In the meantime, here's a demonstration of how Fair Share works.

I already have a number of improvements in mind including Address Book integration. If you have any comments, feel free to contact me at
