When you’re hanging out with friends, whether its at a restaurant or in a bar, you’re always in an awkward spot when it comes to paying the tab. Do you pay for your own food or drink, or divide the bill so that everyone contributes equally? Well, splitting the bill no longer has to be a point of conflict. Social drinking app RounderApp is perfect for friends who want to enjoy the outing without worrying about who’s drinking what and paying how much. Here’s more on the app that will get your friends to pay up or pay the price.
Getting Started with RounderApp
To get started with RounderApp, you first need to sign up and create your profile. The app is intended for anyone over 21 based in the US and 19 in Canada – following the respective legal drinking ages. You simply enter your personal details including three of your preferred drinks, then read the terms and conditions and agree to them. You will receive an email with your initial password. Set your own password and you’re all ready to sign in.
Once you sign in, you can start adding your friends. You can do this manually, connect with Facebook, or choose from your phone’s address book. Once that’s out of the way, you can pick one among the friend’s to be the leader. Naturally, for the trouble of entering the drinks and pricing information, the leader earns points.
When the party is over, everyone can see who drank what and who bought each round based on what the leader keyed in. The group leader can also start chat sessions and award points for one liners or funny comments from team members. He/She can also knock off points for trash talk.
All points collected will eventually be redeemable for Rounder swag or various brewery and liquor swag, but that’s a feature that is still in the pipeline. It never hurts to stack up the points until then, does it?
If there’s someone in the group who is flat broke, refuses to pay up or is a cheapstake, the leader has the permission to post an embarrassing photo or a funny fact about that person (in a fun way, of course!). It will also be a subtle reminder to pay up next time.
Driving Back Home
RounderApp isn’t all about splitting the tab. You can connect the app to Uber and Lyft to get a ride home safely at the end of the night.
If you like the idea of tracking all your beer bar outings with friends, splitting the tab without stepping on anyone’s toes and having a bit of fun with one liners, emojis and GIFs, you’ll likely want to check out this free app on the App Store or Google Play.
If you started using the app, lets us know if there’s a feature you’d particularly like to see in the app. Perhaps a more cheerful background?
And while you’re having a lot of fun with RounderApp, don’t forget to drink responsibly and be safe.
