What is Divvy?
Splitting restaurant checks is a hassle. Divvy makes it fun & easy by automatically reading the prices on your bill using state-of-the-art optical character recognition so you don't have to type them in. Add guests from Contacts, using cartoon icons, or snap a QuickPic of your friends across the table. Then, just drag each item on the check to the people who ordered them to easily calculate total & tip for individuals or groups. Divvy takes care of all the math, so you can finish the meal with dessert rather than homework.Feature list (click to expand) >

- Tax is automatically split based on how much each person spent
- People who want to pay together can be dragged into a group. Group totals are shown
- Detailed breakdown of what everyone owes including pre-tip, tip, and total amounts. Easily see how much to put on your credit card and how much tip to write in later

- Add guests from contacts, by grabbing a quick photo, or using goofy icons
- Optionally calculate tip including coupons like the ones from popular daily deal sites
- Support for items like drinks that already have tax included

Divvy only works on printed restaurant checks and requires an iPhone 4 or above. Divvy is currently available in the United States and Canada, with plans to support other locales and currencies soon!
How it Works
Divvy is built on top of a sophisticated optical character recognigion (OCR) engine that was designed to run efficiently on mobile devices and excels at interpreting documents containing structured numerical data. The Divvy OCR Engine is based on decades of existing research in the field, in addition to what we believe are some innovative new techiques of our own. While Divvy is busy splitting restaurant checks, its OCR engine has bigger hopes and dreams.
If you're developing an application for mobile payments, accessibility, or anything else that might be a good fit for Divvy OCR, we'd love to hear from you.
