If I think something is missing or incorrect what do I do?

In our research, we’ve found the best information on tipping comes straight from the locals. If you think there is inaccurate or missing information on a country, there is a feedback button in the top right hand corner of the app. This will let you email us with any issues or corrections you would like to propose.

Will there be an Android version of Tipster?

Our Android team is currently working on bringing the Tipster experience to Android devices. Keep your eyes peeled for updates!

Why do you ask for permission to track my location at all times?
Do you store this info?

We never save your location and only use it to know when to send a push notification as you enter a new country. If you’d prefer not to give it to us, you can always manually look up a country’s tipping information.

Why do some categories say optional?

Some countries have more robust tipping etiquette than others. It’s not uncommon to find places and scenarios where locals don’t tip but tips are indeed appreciated. In those scenarios, we’ve indicated that tipping is completely optional. Please note: there are some situations where tipping would be considered rude, which we’ve indicated accordingly.
