Quickly Calculate Tips With 14-Year-Old App Developer’s Second App

Quick Tips!!

The now 14-year-old app developer we introduced to you last year, Nicholas G, has just released a second app, putting all of us adults to shame yet again.

This year, Nicholas has put together a rather impressive looking tip calculator that makes it super easy to figure out an accurate tip without all that pesky math.

Called Quick Tips!! (yes, the exclamation marks are part of the charm), Nicholas’ latest app uses all the visual style of iOS 7 and it looks to be pretty as well as functional.

Sure, we can all estimate a tip, vaguely enough, especially if we use a 10 or 20 percent tip number. but what if we want to quickly calculate a 15 percent tip, or an 18 percent one? Quick Tips !! fits the bill.

It has both an Easy Tip feature, which lets you spin a wheel with 5 percent increments, and a Slider feature, where you can calculate any percentage of tip in whole numbers.

Seems like a pretty great app, and even more so when you consider that it was created by a 14-year-old in school.

Give Quick Tips!! a look in the App Store now; it’s free and it looks pretty useful.
