Mahhala is a simple app for iOS that makes tipping based upon the quality of service delivered easy. Because it’s so simple, Mahhala requires no backend API, doesn’t integrate with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or anything else. It doesn’t need your location, or know about your iPhone, or anything else like that. Sure, we could develop an API to aggregate everyone’s tipping data and sell it off, but that’s a lot of work and it would be sleazy. So, no, we’re not doing that.
Now, Mahhala is funded by Google Admob (if we ever make anything off of it), which you can control through your iOS Privacy Settings. We prefer Limit Ad Tracking, which does mean for Mahhala that ad fill rates may be suboptimal, but c’est la vie.
