My thanks to Tap Tap Tap for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed. Tap Tap Tap makes “tasty bits for your iPhone”, and their first two apps are very well done: Where To, a $3 app for finding nearby restaurants, stores, services, and more; and Tipulator, a $1 tip calculator.
A year ago I was dismissive of the idea of a dedicated “tip calculator”, but I got a bunch of emails about that from DF readers who clearly didn’t enjoy math class as much as I did. There are a bunch of tip calculators in the App Store already, and eventually I’m sure there will be dozens — but what Tipulator has going for it is that it looks and feels like the tip calculator that Apple would make if Apple were to make one. A few simple features with a very detailed UI.
