Spit Tip equally (separate from itemised bill and tax)
When eating out it makes sense to split the bill as per who ordered what, but with a tip an option to split equally would be nice.
Sometimes the dishes aren't too far apart in price and you are paying for the service, so we frequently split the tip equally.
Thanks for the suggestion! Always happy to hear suggestions for ways that people like to split. Do you mean for core Splitwise or Plates?

Hi, It would be great to have an option to enter the bill amount and the tips separately and to have automatically distributed the tips amounts using the same distribution of the net bill amount between group members.
With a field to enter pre tip total, and then enter each persons pre tip share with a display of how many shares are unallocated. Or just allow setting a total number of shares on the “by shares” split screen.
I would love to see than option like this in the splitwise app. In the cafeteria we split the cost of different coffee exactly but also buy a bar of chocolate to share which would be nice if we can split the cost equally among certain participants. Right now I have to do a mental calculation or introduce two separate bills.
Is plates the mobile app? I haven't used it, I was talking about the site.
My friends do though, and they had no idea you could itemise a bill because apparently it wasn't available on the phone.
