  1. Keep track of debt w/o inviting friend

    I'd like the ability to keep track of debts without inviting the other person. Examples of this would be me borrowing money from say my grandparents (who don't even have a computer). This would be useful as I could then have a broad overview of both money owed to me and money I owe on my dashboard and I'd be able to have a "record" of payments.

      Hey Barrett – we do allow this in groups, but we’ve decided not to allow it in friendships. Friend invites are a core part of how we grow as a site, so for better or for worse an email address is required. Sorry! Thanks for the suggestion, and let us know if you have any other thoughts or suggestions.

    • 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.

      • 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.

            We have intentionally made all information in groups public. Anyone in the group should be able to easily verify that the totals listed for balances and amounts owed are correct. If you want private expenses, add them to friendships. In the friendship side of things, any user can see an expense they are a part of, but nothing else.

          • 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!

                  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.

                  • 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.

                      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.

                      • 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.

                                    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.

                                      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.

                                      It would be nice if we could share a shopping list with my roommates.

                                        Thanks for the feedback! We do have a whiteboard feature in the new interface on the website that you could use for a shopping list, but we will probably not support anything more complicated than that.

                                        Can you please add following feature? if there is a shared bill from A between A,B & C and if B is not C's friend Then C will be added in B's Friend list automatically

                                          We actually left this feature out on purpose, as we feel there are privacy concerns with this approach. What if B and C don’t want to be friends? We only auto-create friendships if the two people involved directly owe each other.

                                          Thanks for the suggestion, though! Let us know if you have any other thoughts.

                                        • Groups is a terrible concept

                                          Can we just add debts without needing groups? It's tedious to create a group for every single friend or group. Or just have a uber group for everyone. It's just ugly. Please fix.

                                            Thanks for the feedback Srikanth. After a few months, we have come around a bit to your way of thinking. We certainly plan to continue to support groups – most people currently on the site love them! – but we want to focus on making splitwise work awesome without them too.
