Going to a restaurant for a nice meal with friends can be a lot of fun. However, it can be a bit annoying when you order just a plain simple burger and have to pay for what others have ordered too. Life seems very unfair at those times. Nonetheless, splitting the bill for individual people can take a lot of time and effort at times too. This is where the Fair Bill Split iOS app comes into the picture.


This app has been dedicated to solving the embarrassing and annoying problem of splitting a bill equally. Developed by Martin Guerrero, it gives ou various options to split your bill as per your needs. It is currently compatible with all iOS devices having iOS 7.0 or higher. There are two main options: Split Bill Evenly and Itemize Bill.

Split Bill Evenly option allows the bill to be split equally among all those present. The Itemize Bill option, on the other hand, allows you to split the bill individually per person. There are two ways in which you can do this. You can either enter the bill data manually or paste a copy of the receipt.

In the first option, you are allowed to enter the number of people, tax rate, tip rate and the cost of each item on the bill. Once this is done, you can itemize the bill by assigning the apt costs or portions of the bill to the right people. The second option allows you to paste receipt. This can be done using a photo to text conversion using an OCR app. A photo of the app is clicked, input to the app and the output text from the app is pasted into the column for the bill text. With this, your work of itemizing the bill becomes much simpler and faster.


The easy and user friendly user interface makes the app extremely handy and useful. The design is highly intuitive and easy to use for anyone. The data to be entered is very minimal. Also, other factors like tax and tip are also accommodated for in the bill amount. If you do not want to take the trouble of entering all the bill data, the OCR app makes your work very simple. This app can be downloaded separately with this app from the App store.

When you itemize the bill, separate columns are created for each person in the party. One section has all the amounts to be paid and another has all the items on the bill. All you have to do to itemize it is click a person’s name underneath each bill item to add it to a person’s quota. Once this is done for the entire bill, your work is done.

With this iOS app, it becomes extremely easy to split your bills among friends. It saves you the additional embarrassment and the effort that goes into doing all the calculation and math. The app is easy to use with a highly intuitive interface. The fact that the app is available for free on the App Store makes it a must have.
