ServerLife – Tip Tracker, from MZBApps, is an app I recently came across while making my transition back into the service industry. I was looking for something to help log my daily income without having to build and use a tedious spreadsheet. What I ended up finding is a pretty amazing little tool.
At its core, ServerLife works well for simply keeping track of your tips and hours worked, which is really all I was in search of. But the app does a lot more once you start digging into some of its features, and provides a much clearer picture of when and where you’re making your money.
Who should use ServerLife?
ServerLife isn’t just for waiters and waitresses. Anyone with variable and fluctuating income will benefit from using it. If you’re a small business owner, freelancer, or independent contractor, this is an easy way for you to be more on top of your finances. And believe me, it’s better to be on top of your finances than to have them on top of you.
Take my word for it.
What does ServerLife do?
The free version of the app allows you to track values for tips and hours, and you can also add notes. In itself, this may be all you need – and if so, that’s great. But, if you want a bit more functionality, you’ll need to unlock the full version via an in-app purchase of $2.99. That’s a pretty nominal fee here, all things considered.
Unlocking the full version adds the ability to track:
- Credit tips
- Cash tips
- Sales total
- Tip percent
- Hourly wages
- Tips per cover
- Sales per cover
- Tips per mile
- Sales per mile
- Tip-out (Tips to others)
- Tip-in (Tips to you)
Hey, Uber and Lyft drivers – you see that? Mileage tracking and tips per mile are right up your alley, aren’t they? I actually wish I knew about this app back when I was doing Food Dudes deliveries last year. I’d have been all over it.
Multiple jobs? No problem!
ServerLife also has you covered if you work multiple jobs. Unlocking the full version also lets you track multiple jobs, positions, sections, and shifts. It breaks everything down and displays results exactly the way you want and need them.
Amazing customer service
I’ve used and reviewed a ton of apps in my day. ServerLife has some of the best customer support I’ve seen to date. Not only is the developer active and super responsive, but he also offers a direct support chat right from within the app.
This is an amazing touch, in my opinion, that gives an extra layer of professionalism and sense of security when it comes to knowing your money was well-spent.
And support isn’t limited to paid customers, either. Anyone using the app can contact the developer with queries or issues, and rest assured a response will be sent out as soon as possible.

Again, you can check out ServerLife for free, and the premium feature unlock runs $2.99. Answer a few surveys on Google Opinion Rewards and it won’t cost you a dime!
