Even if you have used a tip calculator on a cell phone before, it is a little different in the Verizon Android Smartphone. It is a much easier application to use than in other phones. There are two different ways that you can use the tip calculator. You can split the entire bill among everyone or you can separate each person’s total amount to find out how much tip individuals need to leave.
Here is how to use the tip calculator in the Verizon Android Smartphone:
Step One: Find the tip calculator on your Verizon Android phone by sliding up the icon menu. Touch the icon for “tip calculator” to open the calculator for use.
Step Two: Enter the number of people that will be paying the bill. This will give you the correct numbers when you look for the final calculations.
Step Three: Enter the total amount of the bill in the next box. This will divide the total of the bill and the tip that each person must leave.
Step Four: Choose the percentage of the tip that you wish to leave. If you choose other, enter the percentage amount manually. This will give you the final totals at the bottom of the screen. It will give you the tip amount, bill total and the split cost for everyone to pay. This is the method to use if you are calculating how much each person pays equally.
If you are paying different amounts per person, you will need to use the second method. Here is how to do that:
Follow step one above.
Step Two: At the top of the screen, there are two icons. Touch the icon on the right side of the screen. This will take you to a completely different screen.
Step Three: Choose the amount of the tip that you want to leave. If you choose to leave a different tip percentage than the choices given, choose “other” and manually enter the percentage amount of the tip you wish to leave.
Step Four: Enter the total amount per person in the boxes provided. You can separate up to five different people. This is usually used when the bill for some people is much higher than that for the others. It will give you the total tip amount and total to pay per each person. If necessary, you can save these calculations to your notes. by touching the “save to my notes” button at the bottom of the screen.
You have successfully used your tip calculator on your Verizon Android Smartphone. You never have to wonder if you are leaving the correct amount for the waiter/waitress again. Although it is fairly easy to figure out tips when the bill is small and for just one person, it can get a little more difficult with a large bill with several people. Make it easier on yourself and everyone else by using the tip calculator on your Verizon Android Smartphone.
