    Tab - The simple bill splitter's review

    Published: 2015-06-16, by .

    A supremely useful tool for splitting the bill at the end of a meal

    • Great idea
    • Sleek and quick to use
    • Calculates tax and tips
    • Syncs with multiple devices
    • Multiple item sharing
    • US only
    • What if your bill's not very legible??

    "Never fight over the bill again"


    The supremely helpful, US-based Tab is a great way to avoid arguments and complicated calculations at the end of your meal. With this handy, easy to use app, you need simply take a snap of your bill, to quickly and easily work out who owes what.

    Fast, efficient - we choose wish it was available across the world.


    Tab is really easy to use and solves a very modern conundrum. It has a sleek, minimalist design and is rightfully quick and easy to use.

    Everyone with Tab on their phone can join onto the bill and select their own items, and it even lets multiple people select an item, say, if you shared a side of fries or a bottle of wine.

    Tax and tips are calculated aside and can be divided, so you know exactly what everybody has to shell out. A novel idea, well executed.


    Only as effective as the legibility of your bill: if it's handwritten (old-school) and not printed, you may struggle. Only based in the US, which is a shame.

    Tab is the simple way to split a bill among friends. Snap a pic of the check and tap your items to claim them. Tax and tip are calculated for you. No more back-of-the-napkin algebra or typing in prices by hand!

    Here's how it works:

    • Take a picture of your receipt to read in all the items and prices from the check
    • Select which items each person ordered. Everyone with Tab on their phone can join onto the bill and select their own items – Tab keeps everything synced in real time.
    • Multiple people can select the same item if they shared it
    • Tax and tip are automatically divided proportionally
    • If it's someone's birthday, you can split their total evenly among everyone else
    • Settle up within your group using integrated Venmo or by recording a cash payment

    Never struggle to split the check again!

    A note to our international friends: Tab is currently only available in the US Play Store because the many different receipt formats, unique taxes and languages in other countries would cause our image-to-text conversion and parsing to give very mixed results. We hope to bring Tab to other countries as soon as we can. Thanks for your patience!

    Awesome not wish there was a summary a the end. People pay me in cash and then I leave the tip and have to go back to the beginning to find it

    Would like a way to delete list of old tabs...they keep showing up with no way to clear them out after settling..they don't go away..if i can't get back to them and can't use them after an hour, then i should be able to delete them. .i like less clutter, not more..thanks

    I wish it saved the bill screenshot so I can look back at the bill later. Sometimes you don't want to split everything out right at that moment. Alcohol doesn't help. Haha

    Seems to work fine based on a test. I'd like it to automatically do tax though (and have the percentage changeable). I will definitely try this for real in the future.

    If you eat out with your friends at all, you need this ap. No more covering for friends who don't cover enough of the bill! Venom integration is great!

    Although the app is amazing at what it does, a feature to view past bills would not hurt.
