Our Rating for the app

Seriously, it’s a perfect app for splitting any type of bill with anyone anywhere. So I give 4.5 out of 5. All in all, it is wise to have this app if you regularly go out with your friends. 


According to my, this app is great specially for people of the young age group. The age group that deals with digital money.  With the push notification and reminders features, it is a better way to recall the mate that they need to pay up without being rude.
