  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 0.00 expenses

    I'm interested in using the app to split chores. So when a roommate does a group chore like taking out the trash or cleaning the kitchen, they can record it on the app. Other roommates can check the app and give credit where credit is due like saying thank you or returning the favor in the future.

    This prevents roommate initiative from going unnoticed and helps align expectations. One of the most common issues arising from living with other people is different levels of expectations and initiative. One person might be disgusted with the kitchen while another doesn't mind at…

    Hey Brandon – thanks for the feedback! We’d definitely considering adding better support for chores in the future, though we probably wouldn’t do it via $0 expenses (both for design reasons and for technical reasons, believe it or not). For now, you could try using the whiteboard feature for groups (web-only unfortunately, at the top of the right sidebar), or you could add a $0.01 expense. (You can even assign the whole balance of the expense to yourself, so that it doesn’t affect anyone’s total balances.)

  5. 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!

    Thanks for the suggestion! Draft expenses aren’t in our plans yet, but I can see how they’d be useful. I’ll pass on the suggestion and add it to our list of possible features for the future.

  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. Automatically enter bill based on SMS

    Create an entry in a defaut group regarding an expense based on the SMS of transaction.

  10. 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.

  11. Using Chillr as a payment method in India

    Hello Splitwise Team,

    Your app is amazing and we, the sub 30 population in India use it and love it a lot

    Hey there! We’re definitely open to integrating with more payment providers in the future, and we’d love to start adding payment methods in India. Chillr doesn’t appear to have a public API right now, which we’d need in order to integrate, but we’ll keep them in mind for future updates!

  12. Select the mobile number from phone book

    Mobile number is not automatically taken from the phone book when I tried to add a friend using the mobile app after selecting the person's name.

    Sorry for the trouble! We often have difficulty delivering SMS messages to phone numbers outside the US, especially since the phone numbers in someone’s address book often don’t include the person’s country code. For that reason, we don’t currently load phone numbers directly from your contacts. We hope to improve support for this in the future – in the meantime apologies for the inconvenience!

  14. Weekly/monthly expenditure

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. become an Open Banking app using PSD2 in Europe and reading bank transactions directly and initiate payments

    With the Payment service directive 2 you can read bank transactions which can be added and linked to a group and you can also initiate the payments which settle those payments. ALL European banks must provide this access if their customer requests it via APIs. If you have any questions on this contact me. A fan of splitwise having used it for more than 5 years
