We're not going to start a discussion about whether tipping is good or bad, we'll leave that to Reservoir Dogs, but the truth is that 1 in every 5 people that work in the services sector don't receive tips, mainly due to the fact that their customers don't have any spare change.
If someone deserves a tip, if they really put forth an effort, I'll give them something extra. But this tipping automatically, it's for the birds. As far as I'm concerned, they're just doing their job (Mr Pink).
Bravo is the application that intends to solve this problem, offering us a simple method to tip from our iOS device anyone we want, whether our waiter, the valet, the Just-Eat delivery guy or the hotel bell boy.
How to use Bravo?
How it works is quite simple. You only have to download the app to your iPhone or iPad, search for the person you want to pay by GPS, QR code, name or his personal Bravo ID, choose the amount and confirm the payment. The money will paid into his account immediately and you can even leave a remark about his services.
