I’m taking a software engineering class, and for our group project we had to come up with a piece of software and then design it over the semester.  My biggest problem with the class was that it doesn’t actually get into any programming;  It just covers the processes behind software creation (Agile Software Development, the Waterfall Method, Use Case diagrams, etc).  That’s fun and all (and important), but I like doing the actual dirty work instead of talking about doing the dirty work.
So, here’s Tippa.  We decided on a really basic program so our diagrams and such wouldn’t be overly complicated throughout the semester.  I thought it’d be pretty a pretty easy app for Android, so I threw it together in a little over a day.  It wasn’t that bad, but there were still some things that slowed my progress down.
Anyway, Tippa helps you calculate tips based off of different percentages.  You can then split the check between different people and it will tell you the total.  It also has a tip suggestion screen that gives you general guidelines for tipping different people (Delivery, taxi, bar, etc).  That’s about it.  Yeah, I know, there are millions of tip calculators out there, but it was fun and easy and it gave me a chance to use ViewPagers and some other things I’ve never used before.  So get it NOW!!!!!
