It shouldn’t be that hard, right? The alchemy of splitting a bill requires no math beyond third grade, and yet, like some cruel Greek myth, a group bill will inevitably come up short, time and time again.
Billr.Me is a (yet another) app that will help you split the food fare fairly. But unlike other apps it has two great considerations.
First, it let’s you assign different costs to different diners, rather than just splitting the total up among the party… Someone order the lobster and four Martinis? Assign it to the right guy or gal.
Second, it’s well designed. You know I love me some good designs. Some cool kids from Rhode Island School of Design and Brown made the app pretty and easy to use. Even the name—using the standard app naming convention of inexplicably dropping a vowel—is easy to remember and helps it stand out from apps with names like “TipCalculator” and “TipBillSplit.”
So pick it up. It’s just a buck. Or tell us how you deal with the picking up the tab.
