figuring the tipIn any group of women, Joy’s always the one who figures out the tip. Sigh. A new app, “Gratuity,” does it for her for free.

It figures out how much each person owes, depending on whether you’re at a restaurant bar, or getting a delivery. It also factors in whether you’re happy, sad or neutral about the service, though you can enter any tip percentage you want.

Bob says this is simple arithmetic, but Joy says she likes the automatic figuring. Bob says it would be better if you could make people who order expensive items pay their full share.

In any event, this is one of those apps that didn’t come up in a search on the App Store. If it doesn’t come up for you, open your browser on your iPad or iPhone and search on “Gratuity app.”  There’s a similar app for Android users.
