    So after a couple of hours of tinkering with this app, i finally managed to add a decimal button... yay(maybe i am late?). That being said it was a major under achievement and possibly a terrible way of implementing it due to the fact i have no previous knowledge of JSJSJS, $and$ $I$ $can$ $now$ $say$ $Js$ $is$ $my$ $least$ $favorite$ $language$ $as$ $of$ $yet$.

    This was done on a non rooted pre (this was adding to the time in addition to just using text editor that came with ubuntu )- with somewhere near 50 installations and deletions, not quite sure what gets left of the program since i have no way to check aside from rooting the phone, which I would like to avoid.

    The author of this program aside from being against change, is actually pretty cool considering

    So now I am not sure where to go from here, I guess I could post all the changes that I made to the source on wiki or something. Maybe the author will decide to add a decimal :P

    Yes, I agree and maybe removing the line at the bottom (Sorry Mr. Dev, it just is a little tacky) .

    A reminder not to be cheap is not a bad thing on a tip calculator.

    I'm just disappointed it doesn't go to 30%, which is usually what I tip.

    As far as decimals and rounding go, I wouldn't mind it if one could enter the bill as a decimal amount and then round up the final amount.

    I've sent a mail to the author to see if its app is really open source.
    I hope so ! It would be the 1st webos app on www.palmopensource.com - The PalmOS WebOS Open Source Portal - !

    Thanks!

    I can kinda understand jwz's point about rounding up. I don't like keeping track of exact change at restaurants, and I'm guessing the wait staff doesn't either. So what I normally do is add a set percentage to the bill for the tip, and then round the resulting total up to the nearest dollar. I may play around with implementing something like that.

    BTW, is the text size for the tax/percentage/people supposed to be bigger than the original application? Some of the labels are getting cut off.

    Thanks! Very nice... In addition to the labels... If you hit the "." a second time the results error out... Excellent start...
