WhaTip (iOS Appstore) is a tip advice iOS app developed by Blahblahfire. I created the app’s logo, designed and implemented the interface, and created all visual assets for this app.
We’ve all been in a situation where you aren’t sure if you are supposed to tip or how much is expected. You also needed that information right at that moment. With that in mind, WhaTip needed to be faster than the normal calculator-type tip apps that are already out there.
First, I broke the types of scenarios into four groups and designed around that.
For the calculation screens I wanted the user to quickly know “should I tip in this scenario”, “how should I tip”, and “how much?” So, if there isn’t a tip or the tip is a flat fee, there isn’t an ability to calculate one. In this case, you are clearly shown the rule and if the tip is flat, how much.
For tips that need to be calculated, the rule is built into the interface and the recommended amount, the middle button, is always pre-selected. Then if the user wants to give more or less than the recommended amount, they can at the click of a button. Easy!
