You owe... is the latest iPhone app from Furry Friend. It is (we believe) the best check splitting application out there. It's fast, smart (it remembers a lot), offers usable options, and is, truly, the diner's calculator. We've gained forty pounds and spent thousands of dollars in researching this app. As a result, since it's something we use all the time, we've honed it to a fine edge.

It helps you enter data whenever possible - it remembers the names of diners (when you’ve saved them) so you can select them with the touch of a button rather than re-entering names, it remembers your tip percentage and before/after tax preference. It helps you enter amounts from the check, so that items ending in .25, .50 (and other common amounts) can be entered with a single touch. All of this so you don’t spend a whole lot of time with the green eye shade and miss the party.
