    A simple restaurant tip calculator, my first Palm Pre application. Download the application and/or the source code on the above URL.

    I installed it and it looks good. I haven't upgraded to 1.04 just yet.

    Still no decimals, eh?

    Awesome app!

    Boy....a decimal point would be great for this app

    You do realize that you can simply just type in the amount without a decimal (say it's $24.17, just do 2417) and then it works just the same, adding your own two decimal places at the end of the calculation...

    That actually may be something to consider, jwz: just having the decimal point already be there on the screen and they just enter in the numbers. Unless I'm being naive couldn't it purely be an ascetic thing that doesn't change the numbers or any computations, but just the display of them, correct?

    I'll take a look at your source code and see if it's anything I can remotely understand (I just know html & C++, but am a fast learner!).

    Is there a reason why 8.75% tax was skipped? any chance that could be added in??

    There are some tax rates that are commented out in the code, so yes I believe that would be easy to add in, even if it's not already one there.

    Have we all gotten so gadget friendly that we're not mathematically able (LAZY)?

    No I'm actually pretty great at math, just not too much in my head. And I like exactness in my calculations, so I at least know the answer before I round..

    Oops.. I was referring to the other post hampering on the dev to put a decimal point. Your post had me rolling that you had to explain simple math to these gadget happy people.

    It's all good.. I kind of figured that anyway but wasn't sure. But yeah, pretty sad.

    I played around with this app some (the decimal thing bugged me too...sorry jwz ). I removed the "backspace" button and made it a decimal. I also extended the max to 6 numbers. It seems to work for the most part....the only issue I'm having is when the number right after the decimal is a 0....it basically ignores it and doesn't add the decimal. Keep in mind I have very little javascript experience, so it could be something simple...I just haven't figured it out yet.

    So this will not install after 1.0.4 is installed?

    I didn't see mention of the install process (and haven't downloaded yet).

    It won't install using the email method anymore. You would need to use the SDK to install it.

    Why don't you give people what they want and add a decimal??? You should rename this application to Tip Guestimator. It should be up to the end user round up the tip depending on service and not to the developer.

    I for one will not use this until I see a decimal in the application.

    While I sort of agree with wanting a decimal, I realize that you can enter in a decimal number without a decimal and just imagine it's there in your head (so 2453 = 24.53). The math works just the same! Just saying..

    It's really the principle of the thing.

    I don't think anyone with functioning brain cells needs a tip ESTIMATOR. We can already do that; "Let's see, bill is 48 bucks, 10% of that is obviously 5ish, twenty percent would be $10ish."

    Gee, I don't need an app for that.

    That said, it's the developer's app, and he can have whatever features he wants.
