  1. Total payable amount breakdown while sending reminder

    Hi there,

    Great work with the app. I downloaded the app today, used it for a while and I think I am gonna stick with it for a long long time. Its very useful for me. A couple of ideas or suggestions i would like to give though-

    1) while sending reminder, it would be great if i could send a screenshot of the expenses owed by my friend at the other end. May be a screenshot or a simple breakdown of the expenses, it would be very helpful.

    2) its irritating that everytime i have to assign a bill…

    Thanks for the suggestions! I’ll pass ‘em on at our meeting on Monday, but here’s a quick response:

    1) Good thought! We do provide a link to Splitwise in the reminder email, where that person can log in and view the full list of bills, but it could definitely be nice to see the list directly in the email.

    2) You’re definitely not the first to ask for this, but there are a few reasons we haven’t done it. The first is selfish – requiring invites helps Splitwise to grow, which allows us to keep the service free rather than having to charge. The second reason is user confusion – you’d be surprised how often people email us wondering why they can’t see the bills their friend added, or why their copy of the app shows a different balance than their friend’s (usually because they email addresses they’re using don’t…

  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. Provide Graphs on various spending trends

    Great app to use. Would be helpful if we get an option to view graphs on spending trends.

    We actually have some graphs already on our website – click any friend or group, then click the “Trends” button at the top of the right-hand sidebar and choose “View full charts” at the bottom of the sidebar.

    In the future, we may add graphs to mobile as well, though it’s not yet on our roadmap.

  4. Add regular payment tracking function for non-split expenses

    would be great if I would be able to add payments I make for myself as well. this would allow me to use SPLITWISE for all expenses, currently its 20% split, 80% expenses for myself. of course the split ones are more actionable but some information on the other expenses would greatly help...

    in the splitting screen there could be another field I PAY MYSELF.

    in the enter detail screen I would just need an optional field to be able to categorize my expenses.

    and in the OVERVIEW screen it should show how much was spend you paid XX,XX $"…

    Hi there,

    Several people would love to use Splitwise for personal expenses, and we’re always interested to hear about this. So far, we’ve stayed away for just the reason you say – the ones owed to others are more actionable. So we are focusing on that for now.

    I’m aware that some users input expenses with just themselves, and list themselves as the “payer” as well as the only “ower.” The only place these expenses can be seen is on the “all expenses tab.” But yes, seeing charts and such would be nice in that case, and that’s hard to do right now.

    Thanks for the suggestion, and we’ll leave the under review for now.

    Cheers,
    Jon

  5. update Plates to share totals over AirDrop (iOS 7)

    I love Plates, and I think the UI is simple and easy to use. When I need to share the totals with the table, text and email options are nice, but sometimes I don't have their contact information.

    AirDrop would allow me to send it to them without that info. Being able to AirDrop would make splitting dinner with acquaintances that much easier! Perfect example of this for me: I was at a brunch with 10 people after a wedding at a diner. I only knew 2 of the people at the table. Plates saved the day and made sense…

  6. Delayed Viewing

    It would be really cool if the monthly reoccurring bills could have a delayed notification. For instance, if I put in a bill due on Oct 10 (reoccurring) it would actually show up as a transaction for the involved parties on Oct 3 (one week early, or any set time). That way it doesn't say my roommates owe me for a bill due over a month away. Thanks, great app!

    Thanks for the suggestion! I’ll pass it on to the team at our next meeting.

    For now, you can sort of do this already for future copies of recurring bills. When adding a recurring bill, you have the option to set a “Reminder” period (e.g. “Remind me one week in advance”). When Splitwise sends out the reminder for the next bill, it’ll add that bill to Splitwise at the same time. As a result, your next bill will be posted exactly a week in advance (or whatever time period you choose). Hope that helps!

  7. android app for tablet

    Recently saw in the promotional mail for "Plates" that the android app will get a much needed update. Will the new app be optimised for Tablets also. I have the current splitwise app on my Nexus 7 tablet and it is a very bad user experience. Any timeline on the new version and tablet optimisation?

  8. Make it so you can use the iphone app upside down

    This may sound a bit odd, but it's trivial to enable in xcode, I think.

    I often use Splitwise on my ipad. Since you only have an iphone app, that's what I use.

    I often prop up my ipad with the charging port facing up in portrait mode so I can charge it without the cable interfering. This doesn't work right with Splitwise, which will not run upside down like other ipad apps will.

    I believe this is just a check box in xCode.

  9. See who owes who in App

    It's annoying to see you still owe someone some money but cant remember what is it about. The app should be able to breakdown who owes who like the one on the website, including the ability to choose to simplify the total money or not.

  10. Integrate with GoCardless for Payments

    It would be great to avoid the pain and frustration of paypal and just link my GoCardless account with Splitwise so people could pay me via the app or a simple GoCardless URL

    They (https://gocardless.com) offer really simple payments with a 1% transaction charge up to a maximum of £2.

    Their API is fantastic, very well documented and I think it would be very simple to integrate with.

  11. Group settle

    One thing i liked about Billmonk was that i could create random groups and did not have to send invites and link to others. Once I could create random groups i could easily shuffle debts between everyone in the group.. That was super convenient. Also on the fly I could remove and add users during the debt shuffle process.

    I wish you could build something like that. It was much better user experience

    We are working on the way groups and friendships work together and we agree that expenses should be shuffled around between people to make peoples lives easier. Adding people to the debt shuffle is something we’ll talk about and see if it’s something we’d like to do.

  12. Detailed bill summary

    In a apartment or home group, where the names are listed who owes what, you should be able to tap their names and see a detailed summary of exactly what they owe per bill

    We plan on making the amounts that people owe easier to read and better organized down the road. I really like the idea of clicking on the name and having it shuffle so you only see what their amounts are.

  13. 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.
