    If you type in TIP Calculator in the search box in the upper right corner it'll give you several results. I'm using TipMaster

    Just out of curiousity ( as a rerstaurant manager wanting to know), what your tipping policies are and why?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~not to be rude but if you need to calculate a tip you shouldn't be dining out! Also using the calculator built into your blackberry you can do the same without downloading yet another useless app...its basic math...use the calculator you have...or better yet give a little extra...I paid for a dual masters working on tips!! Pay it forward...

    Some people have more complex tipping formulas. When I eat out, I tip so that the final total is rounded to the nearest dollar. The level of service decides whether it's up or down. And I start at 20%. So, try figuring a 20% tip rounded to the nearest final dollar in your head.

    Just saying, a tip calculator can be useful. Especially if you're bad at math, like me

    I agree with catstide...nice first post. I also like having a tip calculator. If I had drinks I tip the bartender separately. The meal and dessert is what the servers tip is based on. I also calculate the non-monetary factor of how good the service was in general. A tip calculator also comes in handy if you happen to have a pompous over-bearing server....I can't calculate negative integers in my head.

    i just installed tip master.i've been using tip buddy but master is better for two reasons.buddy first takes you to an add for the developer.you just have to click any button to get past it but it's sill a bit annoying.the second thing is the master keeps the info you last entered.i usually tip 18% so i don't have to enter that each time,it's already there.

    I use GeoTip sometimes. My usual policy is whatever I feel is earned by the server. I'll look at my tax ( around 8% here ) and double it then add a bit more. If the service was remarkable then I add even more. If it wasn't great then I'll leave the Doubled tax amount.

    I had the worst service ever a few weeks ago and I left 1 penny. I learned more about the Boob job that the waitress had than I needed to know. I waited for 30 minutes to get the check after prying her away from the table of men behind me. I sent an email to the company. They sent me $40 in food certificates, a personal phone call from the manager and another apology letter. I'll probably try them again in a month or so.

    I think this is so funny! I actually laughed out loud. Truer words were never written.

    Sounds like the way Outback handles guest emails.

    Tip calculators also split the check, including taxes - when multiple parties are sharing the table. Can be quite useful, oh MIT graduate.

    The tip calculator is convenient and very useful when you are dining out, especially when there's a lot of people in your party. Plus, I'm not that good at math... Haha.

    I usually tip 10 to 15 %. However the service really depends on how much I tip.
