The Best There Is✨ 5/5
UPDATE: Still no update to this great app (May 2016). Fortunately it is still working fine.
This is a great app that works quickly and easily. If you have a group of 3 or more people this app assures that everyone pays their fair share (including tax & tip)... Quickly!!
I do not understand why Splitwise has given it such short shift in terms of development. I actually like Plates more than Splitwise, because I use Plates more often.
Anyway, you can't go wrong with Plates. It's a keeper.
Where has this been all my life!!! 5/5
This is the best!! And so user friendly!! I opened it up to play around and had no bugs or issues at all, it was simple and will make it so much easier than that awkward how do you want to split this up? Or we didn’t really have the apps or wine, but we can split the bill equally..... lol we’ve all been there
I’m telling everyone about this magical little app! It’s AMAZING ❤️❤️❤️❤️🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
By Samuel ev
This app is Great, but it would be marvelous to add decimal setting for non-USD user.
The best tip app! But needs update to iPhone X 5/5
I love this app I use daily with friends for fun even though I don’t want to paid back. It’s easy to view what the total bill was and how much to tip. Must have for anyone who eats out frequently.
Fantastic; absolutely the most useful app of is kind 5/5
Makes sharing the city of a meal with friends a breeze. App apportions tax and tip by the individual diner's total (when I first tried this app about 6 months ago, the sales tax was done as an even split by the number of fingers. Kudos to the developers for fixing this).
I love this because dragging items one by one to the individual diners automatically sums them up. No need for another calculator to be open. Another nice feature is that you can stack the completed plates for another total, like when two diners want to pay together as one.
Wish the app had history 3/5
Would give it 5/5 if the app had the ability to see previous splits.
Great app for groups 4/5
Great app for splitting with groups, but wish there was an option for additional taxes that are split up on the receipt. Right now, we have to add up all the taxes and input them as one tax on the app.
Great app! 5/5
Since Billr is gone this is a great alternative. Most apps only calculate tips or split bills evenly. I like how it asks for the total first and lets you know the remaining amount to assign to a plate. Will use this frequently!
Love app 5/5
Best bill split app ever!! 5/5
So happy that this app received a much needed update after so long!
Game changer 4/5
Fantastic app. Great and use friendly interface. I've used this app several times, however two items to consider for fixes:
1. I’m constantly having to edit the text size otherwise the size is too large in landscape mode.
2. Add option to put in dollar amount for tips versus just percentage.
Smart App 5/5
This is smart, takes second guessing out of splitting the bill. Would love to see it integrated into Splitwise App. Would also like features like: 1. Being able to click plate and text to someone in your contacts. 2. And/or able to send them a Venmo/Cash App request. 3. Ability to take photo of receipt, it reads items that can then be added to the plates.
Don't eat out without it 5/5
Great app makes splitting bills with multiple people a joy instead of a hassling chore. Please keep the updates coming and continue the great work.
It could be better 3/5
It's great for division, but your calculator does the same if you divide the tab by plate. It would be spectacular if you enabled the camera to recognize the ticket and amounts and be able to divide after that. An update maybe?
Love it 5/5
I love this app. My friends and I use it every time we go out to dinner. My only recommendation would be to have a way to add in restaurant mandates (in some SF restaurants a percentage is added to the bill to cover wait staff insurance, etc). As it stands now we have to add this in as an entree that is slit by everyone (which technically isn't accurate and then you end up tipping on it).
Best app ever 5/5
I pull this out every time I go out with friends, and they're always impressed. Seriously, thank you for this app!
Fantastic but needs improvements 4/5
By Hooman Ghafouri
I think there should be options to rename dishes to know which dish i belonged to which friend.
Great app 5/5
By Another UC Berkeley Student
This app is intuitive to use and very exact in it's calculations. Paired with venmo, it makes splitting dinner bills extremely convenient.
Fast download. Worked perfect!
love it & highly recommend it 5/5
Every time I pull out plates after a dinner, I end up convincing everyone with me to download the app. It's super easy to use and splits things accurately. My only wish: you could manually enter in how much tip you're adding, instead of the sliding scale.
Needs an Update 3/5
I thought the app is very great in the beginning but slowly I got to know that this applications makes mistakes in calculations!
Doesn't support more than 10 plates
Love this app! 5/5
By Apple Hipster Since Age 5
I absolutely bleeping love this app - splitting checks is so easy with this thing I wish I knew about it earlier.
Only suggestion is integrate this with Venmo for payments.
Why haven't the fixed the math error? 3/5
Other than the incorrect total that you get when you move a pile of plates onto a single plate, this is a well-designed app. I reported that error over a year ago, but they still haven't fixed it. I've taken to adding up the final split amounts to ensure that I haven't hit that bug. When I do, I have to start over. I guess they've abandoned work on this app.
Very good. Only one demand 4/5
By Julio Macuxi
The app fullfills its purpose. But, as usual, the account items comes separately in the bill, obligating the user to open a calculator app to make the sum. So, I miss a sum resource when you launch each value for one person. Please add this resource.
No more convenient that using the calculator app 2/5
The math was fine for my bill, but every single time I tried to send it started glitching the framing of the drop down menus off screen. Dragging a numerical value to every person's tab is fine. Choosing to name each plate so I can remember whose is whose without having to look at the numbers I've added thus far would've been useful, but none of the names display when it's time to send, so I still have to remember each individual person's total and attach their name from my contact list anyways. Oh what a waste of time naming the plates in the first place was... overall. It doesn't link to splitwise or to any payment app either, so when my friends who already use splitwise and see the text from plates, it's pretty surprising that you can't link directly to a venmo/paypal/etc transaction or even link to the splitwise app to link to a payment app transaction.
Everything is great but please add arbitrary tips 2/5
See title. I LOVE the app but without arbitrary tips I cannot use it to its full extent. When my friends go out we usually don't tip the exact percentage. If the feature is added, I'm giving FIVE stars.
The best bill splitting app 5/5
I've tried ten apps for splitting bills and tips accurately and finally found this one. You shared only the appetizer but not the dessert? Then only count yourself in splitting the part of appetizer. It also calculates the tips proportionately to the amount your share in the bill. No need to concern if anyone pay more or less than they supposed to. No longer a pain to split the bill after dining.
Love the app, but missing one feature. 5/5
By Riley Sengir
App is great works perfectly, but one thing I wish it had would be a key pad for tip as well as the slide bar for percentages. Not everyone tips by percentages to the exact penny.
Integrate with Venmo 4/5
Great way to split the bill quickly but would be even better if you could charge via venmo right in the app.
This does not support different currencies...
It looks awesome but technically I cannot use it now.
Clever and easy! 5/5
By Way of Cats
First time, dinner with seven people, and it worked so swiftly one friend said, "What, already? We wanted to sit around and talk more!"
It is well-designed and easy to figure out, and doesn't try to do too much which leads to making it harder to use. I couldn't be more pleased with this check splitting app.
Missing important features 2/5
If this wants to be the goto app for tipping it needs to add more features, like: storing the last 1 or 2 meals to be available for review, and tipping on the tax.
Awesome, but fix the share feature please! 4/5
This app is a godsend when trying to figure out a complicated shared bill. Unfortunately it's share feature which allows you to show the calculations isn't functional. Please fix this for a five star review.
Great app but please update so buttons stay on screen 5/5
By Beka O
So convenient and easy! I love this app but I wish there could be an update so when you hit the "share" button the buttons align to the iPhone screen!
Really useful but... 4/5
Totally agree with all the other feedback. Just needs played to be nameable and export plates into Splitwise!
Add splitwise support 3/5
By Gabriel Lanata
Great app but definetly needs splitwise integration to be useful for me. Please update!
Add names before/custom plate locations 4/5
I love Plates! And Splitwise as well!
It would be awesome if you could rearrange plates to visually match the table you're sitting at in an easy manner, but also if the app could accommodate tons of people too (greater than the limit cap).
Also, you should be able to manually add names beforehand, not afterword via the contact section.
Also, if there was Venmo/PayPal integration like Splitwise, this would be a killer dinner calculation app!
Awesome work though, loving it so far. I'll definitely change the review to 5 stars if at least one of these minor issues are addressed!
Thrilled! (Needs Update Please!!!) 4/5
Love this app! Hopefully it will help avoid the uncomfortable "Let's just split the bill evenly" when all I had was a salad and soda while the rest of you went to town with a Filet Mignon and House Wine.
Please update the app!!! Everything works great up until you get to sharing the totals by either text or email. The buttons off the screen on the iPhone 6 Plus. Otherwise great. A cheap work around has been to screenshot the screen and text that instead. Not elegant but still, Update PLEASE!!!
What happened? 1/5
It's broken on iOS 9 + iPhone 6s. :(
Please update it! I LOVE this App; I can't go out without it!
Just beautiful 5/5
By the way, slick design
Makes splitting the bill fun! Also gets the wow factor from friends.
Great solution to a common social puzzle 5/5
Great app! I like that it's stand alone to SplitWise as there are always times when you are dining and there are people you're not familiar/friends with. Great user interface and walk through. Covers all the bases even down to combining dishes at the last second for couples in a party.
Gotta have it 5/5
By Kyle NS
Love the UI
Easy to use 5/5
A necessity. Easy to split easy to use especially with a large group.
Amazing app. 5/5
By Lego Damashii
Simple, easy to use, helpful!
I need original split wise 2/5
Love it... But 4/5
I love this app... Just rating it 4stars because I would like to have the tax option in percentage... Just as splitwise
Few minor flaws make this a big miss 3/5
Can be handy, but couple minor things make this app so much less useful than it could be.
1) Plate names: I have to keep a mental map of who sat where throughout my entire use? Really?
2) Splitwise: why in the world can't I import the bills from this into Splitwise to split amongst my group? We these made by separate teams that just REALLY don't get along or something?
Very useful app 4/5
By Jeff Bowen
This app is well-designed and very useful. Only thing I wish it had was an easy way to directly charge a "plate" to a friend on Venmo. Splitwise has a feature like that so seems like it wouldn't be too hard to add.
