A couple of app reviews:
Splitsville — A simpler way to split the restaurant bill
This tip calculator on steroids gives you a simple way to split up restaurant bills with your friends. It is very useful for easy splits, and it even has a couple of features that would make it handy in more complicated situations.
One nifty feature is the option to adjust a person’s share up and down by a dollar at a time and distribute the balance among other guests, which is particularly useful when just a few people split an appetizer, for example. Splitsville will also let you calculate the tip into everyone’s share of the bill, provided you all agree on the quality of the service.
The app divides for only up to eight guests, however, so bigger parties may have to work out a split bill the old-fashioned way: arm wrestling.
Free, for iOS devices.
Lose It! — A budget sheet for waistline austerity
Counting calories? This app borrows designs from financial apps to give you a budgetlike view that makes it easy to see what you’ve eaten and how much more will work for your daily allotment. After you set a goal of losing so many pounds per week, you input your age and weight to calculate how many calories you should eat per day. Then, you can input what you eat and how much you exercise to keep it all in check.
The app has the calorie count for some foods on file, but you can add your own foods for a more accurate count.
Free, for iOS and Android devices.
