  1. dispense with the notion of "groups", except as a shortcut to adding friends to a bill.

    I'm not really sure what purpose groups are serving, but really what I want is to be able to say, "add a bill to this group", and have it just open the same screen as it does when I add a bill to a friend, but with all the correct friends for that group already added...

    Not sure why groups are managed as a completely separate thing from friends - seems like a group is just a subset of friends.

    While we do plan to revisit our groups concept and will be tuning how our groups and friendships interact (it’s definitely not correct in the current UI), the main difference between friends and groups is privacy. In a group, and bill added to the group can be seen by anyone in the group, regardless of if they are involved in the bill or not. This is nice if you have related bills that not everyone is involved in, but might want to see (I might not pay anything on the electrical bill, but it’s important to me that my apartment has electricity).

    This also means anyone in the group may add, edit or delete bills for anyone else in the group and balances get shuffled in groups if you turn Simplified Debts on for the group.

    The upshot of this is: only set up a group for a set of…

    I assume this is a bill added in a group and not a bill between two friends (bills between friends can only be changed by people on the bill). Anything added to a group can be edited and viewed by anyone else in the group. We do this so that anyone in the group can make corrections (for example: the payment was listed to the wrong person). In you user settings you can ask to be notified by email when expenses are added or changed and in the dashboard on the web you can undelete recently changed expenses.

    Currently we have no plans to start tracking other than monetary expenses. We’re aware of other sites that have done this, but currently we don’t have this on our roadmap as future features.

  6. how the heck can someone else delete an entry I made ?

    Your application is awesome, but it has a huge flaw when it comes to the part where someone else is allowed to delete an entry i made. I see that you have notifications set up when such thing happens but this will not work. You should not allow this to happen in the first place. By giving everyone right to delete anyone else's entry in a group you are losing customers like me to billmonk.

    We allow group members to edit or delete anything within that group. This is because we want anyone within that group to be able to fix a mistake and have total transparency. If you create a friendship with a person, then the only people that can edit or delete an expense will be the people involved.

  7. Change the group Icon

    its confusing to have the home icon for groups. It would be better if you use a picture with multiple people.

    In user testing, using an icon with multiple people is more confusing than the current icon. We do plan to change this icon with our next major release to something less house specific.

  8. Maintain splitting by number of people a person is suppose to pay for

    Lets say I want to split a bill of 80 $. We were 6 friends 2 couples and
    2 singles. Now the bill cannot be split equally between 6 friends as we expect the husband to pay for their wives.

    So there should be a automated way of attaching number of person a guy is paying. So I add a bill and add just 4 people in it. But 2 of them are supposed to pay for their wives so 80 gets split like
    (26.66,26.66,13.33,13.33)

    Hey there, I’m only declining this because this is a duplicate of an existing ticket.

    Allowing one person to cover more people in an expense is something that we’re planning on doing now that our big release is out the door!

    Currently we have no plans to make a Facebook app. We’re a small team of 2.5 engineers and we have some other platforms that we wish to get to before the Facebook app.

  11. Let me import expenses without annoying all my friends by sending them invites

    I'm actually not going to use the importer because I apparently can't import expenses without sending invites. that's dumb.

    Part of Splitwise’s ethos is to keep everyone on the same page, so we’ve made a conscious decision to send emails out to the users that you’re creating friendships with.

  12. You can only edit/delete/add a bill if you are involved in it

    A user should not be able to modify or add a bill if he/she is not involved in it.

  13. allow debts to be seen in groups when they exist between two people within the group

    My friend added me to a group, but when we look "in the group" it looks as if there are no debts between us, which is not the case

    Currently in a group any user can see any expense that is in the group. We don’t want to list anything in the group screen that cannot be seen by everyone to prevent confusion and maintain privacy.

  14. Make Android App compatible from Android 2.1

    Now, android app is compatible from Android 2.3.3 only.
    More people are using lesser versions of android. Mostly Android 2.2
    it would be great if the app is compatible from Android 2.1

    This is actually intentional, as some of our users like to use Splitwise to keep track of all their bills, even those that aren’t shared with other people. I agree it’s a bit odd, but we’re going to keep it in, at least for now.

    Can I ask for more information on why you want this feature? We don’t currently have plans to enable this, as we feel it would be abused by users in disputes.

  17. Dashboard should tell me how much I owe in total and how much I'm owed

    as above

    It is very inconvenient when I'm doing my calculations and tallying numbers to add up manually.

    Please implement this feature

    This behavior is intentional – in a group, we believe that all group members should be able to see all expenses. This allows members of the group to more easily correct mistakes and get an complete picture of what’s going on.

    On the web, if you wish to view only the expenses that involve you, you can click “Hide items not involving me” under the “Other actions” menu.

  20. Auto detect date from expense name

    When I enter an expense name like 'gas on 8/20' the expense date should automatically be set to 8/20

    Hey! If you’re doing this kind of thing already, quick-add does this and is expected to do as much as possible to guess what your expense is (text field near the add buttons on the web and in the friend or group page on the mobile apps). I don’t think we’ll add this to the general expense add flow because it’s tricky to implement this kind of behavior without overriding someones careful effort to do something like register “rent january 1” for December 20th so their housemates get enough heads up to get them checks before vacation.
