tipBru – My First Android App

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Today I successfully launched my first, own native, fully hand-coded Android app on the Google Play Store.

About tipBru

tipBru is a small free app I developed that alleviates the need for a calculator when out dining. The lightweight app can quickly calculate the tip on a bill and comes with 3 standard tipping “generosity” levels.

tipBru was also developed with a “round up” feature that allows you to pay a solid, rounded amount instead of a total that is “fragmented”, for lack of a better term. This is useful in situations where you only have cash and don’t want cents back.

The small utility app is available for free from the Google Play Store as from today and you can download it from the link at the bottom of this post.

Completely Free And The Source Code Too!

To compliment the release of my app, I have also included the entire source code in a GitHub repository, which can be accessed from here. I plan to keep the source code updated as I go along and push out new versions. Feel free to glance over the code.

Tools Used To Develop the App

  • Coded in HTML / CSS / Javascript
  • Using Framework7
  • Compiled with Apache Cordova (strictly using the CLI)
  • Using the Google Android SDK
  • Using JDK 8 / JRE 8
  • Coded with Brackets
