At the time of recording this video there were 3 Tip Calculators on the Android Market. Since then, even more have sprung up. While I tip my hat to the developers who put their best effort towards making gEZtip, Tip Calculator and SA Tip Calculator, but I found neither 3 were up to par with the Tip Calculator I had on my proprietary Verizon OS based LG Voyager.
The lack of a visual QWERTY is painfully apparent with tip calculators, where a few quick taps of numbers SHOULD be able to do the trick. But sliding open the hardware QWERTY is – until January- your only option.
Other than that, I would really enjoy if these tip calculators used your GPS location to automatically fill in the sales tax based on where you are. Afterall, location IS what determines sales tax and Android is fully capable… why not pull out all the stops?
Unfortunately, I can’t recommend any of these tip calculators and am still in search of the one I’ll ultimately keep on my phone – I do enjoy having one. If you’ve tried one you like that has come out since the recording of this video, please do share your experience!
