  1. iPhone app notification

    I have badge app notifications (the red circle that is in the corner of the app) turned on on my iphone, but all I get is a banner that pops up when an expense has been added. I don't want to get e-mails or texts, is it possible for a badge to appear? Also once I or the other person have settled up, can we receive a notification? Thanks

    Hey there – sorry for the trouble! I’m afraid the Splitwise app only supports emails or push notifications right now, and not badges on the app icon. Splitwise should send you a push notification by default any time that another person adds a bill or payment with you, but you can turn off those notifications from the “notifications” section of the settings screen.

  2. Allow the android app to rotate its display

    Many thanks for the v3 app! It looks awesome already. But I was a bit disappointed that it didn't support rotation. It's my impression that rotation in Android Apps was a simple thing to add.. (I might be wrong though).

    Hope this get's added. It's necessary for tablets :P
    .. And for my phone with a pull-out keyboard (HTC Desire Z).

    Sorry for the trouble! We’d love to add rotation support at some point, but it’s actually a fair bit of work to make sure that everything works properly when rotated. It’s on our list of possible app improvements, but it will probably be a while before we seriously consider it. In the meantime, apologies for the inconvenience!

  3. Option to show only the transactions that involve me

    This feature to hide transactions which do not involve me is already present in the web. So it would be great if the same is present in mobile.

    It is particularly useful if you have a large group.

    Hey Manu – thanks for posting this in our forum! This would definitely be a nice improvement on our mobile apps, especially for large groups :) Hopefully it’s something we can work on next year!

  4. Default the group when I go to add expenses

    Default the group when I go to add expenses. You can make a setting option for your default gruop

    Sorry for the trouble! I can see how this would be useful, so I’ll add it to our list of possible improvements for future updates. In the meantime, apologies for the inconvenience!

  6. Pick a date using calendar layout (i.e. the layout in calendar apps), replacing the date/month/year scroll

    It will be easier to pick a date using calendar layout, as sometimes if we use date scroll, we may miss the date/month/year and need to scroll it again.

  7. make it easier to manage reoccuring expenses

    I set it up once, and now i can't find it anywhere. Bad UX. Should be pretty central.

    Sorry about this – we know recurring expense support on the iPhone is pretty minimal and rather confusing. We’re hoping to make it clearer and easier to use in future updates.

  8. A way to show settle up amount for just the past month

    I settle up on the first of the month or shortly thereafter. I'd like to see the settle up amount for just the previous month and exclude any recurring bills for next month that are already starting to showing up.

    Two possible solutions for you:

    If you use groups: Have you tried clicking the “view printable summary” link at the top of each month on our website? That link includes a total for each person for JUST that month, so that you can see how much each person spent/owes for a given month.

    If you’re splitting all your bills with one other person: The “Trends” tab in the right-hand sidebar also includes a summary of monthly expenses. Click the “Trends” button at the top of the sidebar, then click the “View full charts” link at the bottom of the sidebar. You’ll be able to see your expenses broken down by category, as well as your total balance for the month.

    If that doesn’t do what you’re looking for, let me know and I’ll pass on the suggestion.

  9. Name Diners and Itemize in Plates

    It would make it convenient to be able to name diners in the Plates app. This well help identifying which plate belongs to the individual diner.

    Another nice feature would be the ability to type in the items off of a receipt so when you send out the split check your friends see what they ordered and not just a line item dollar amount.

    Thanks for the suggestions! You can actually already name diners in the Plates app, though it’s a bit hidden – just tap on a plate while you’re adding items, and then tap on the name displayed in the column on the left. You’ll be able to type in a name for that plate. It’s pretty basic, but I hope it helps!

    I’ll pass on your suggestion about naming items – I know we left that out at first in order to keep Plates as slim and fast as possible, but I definitely see how it’d be useful for some people. For now, I’m sorry for any inconvenience!

  10. Ability to use "open in Splitwise" for pictures or pdfs of receipts

    I use an app called CamScanner to scan my receipts because it crops the receipts and applies a whitening filter to make it look very nice.

    I can save this to my camera roll and then import them into splitwise but it would be nice to be able to press "open in splitwise" for any image or pdf. You would have to register the file types your app supports.

    Description of technology by Apple:
    If your app is capable of opening specific types of files, you should register that support with the system. This allows other apps, through the iOS…

  11. .. add settings for the picture-quality of the uploaded receipt?

    Because sometimes it seems the picture is really low res while the original photo on the phone is high res.

    Sorry for the trouble! We try to strike a good balance between image size and picture quality (I think we generally crop images to 1000×1000px). I’m not sure we’ll add a manual setting for image quality, but hopefully we can keep making improvements to allow for better images.

  12. Auto fill repeat transaction names

    When I start to type something I use all the time, suggest autofill

    Thanks for the follow-up! We include a more comprehensive backup option in Splitwise Pro on web only right now that we will probably bring to mobile eventually. If you have Splitwise Pro (available in your web account settings) there is an option to export a full backup of your entire account under advanced settings in your web account settings.

  14. Add image/PDF from cloud storage service (Drive, Dropbox support)

    I download electronic (PDF) versions of all my expense statements (electric bill, gas bill, etc) and save them to a folder in Google Drive. It would be great if I could attach the PDF file from Google Drive (or Dropbox, Box, iCloud whatever) to an expense, much like you can already attach a photo from the photo library.

  15. Plates should support discounts too

    When we apply discount coupons, restaurants give discount on final amount. As plates doesn't support this it difficult to use plates at such time.

    Temporary workaround: Generally we subtract discount amount from tip and try to use it somehow.

    Plates is as simple and easy to use as it is because we’ve left out a number of less frequent use cases. If this gets a lot of votes, we’ll know its something a lot of people would use, and will think about adding it.

  19. Email summary for the expenses

    If we can have the email summary for the expenses for all / some participants then it would be great.

    Please look in the email summary of Share-a-bill app for iphone for an example.

    We plan on making some more email reminder choices for groups in the near future. I can understand why in bigger groups going through each person and sending them a single email instead of the whole group could be frustrating.

  20. Graphic development

    Develop new icons for each expense! Like coffee, rent, laundry...!!
