There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. make it easier to change the category of an expense.

    Often an expense is categorized as 'General' when it cannot automatically be identified. I suggest you add the ability to change the category directly from the main page of expenses (perhaps a drop-down menu next to the expense) instead of needing to click on each expense and then clicking 'edit expense'.

    You can now change the expense category icon without having to edit the expense! Just click on the icon in the group page and the other service icons should appear right below the expense.

  2. allow combing fb and email logsins

    I first signed up with email, joined a group, used splitwise etc etc. Then on a new computer I signed in with fb (because I forgot which way I did it before). Now it's stuck on the "new user setup" stuff and I can't log out.

    We do allow users to use both, but combining can get a bit tricky if you didn’t set it up with your first login. Submit a ticket here or email support@splitwise.com directly and we will combine your accounts. (we’d rather not have you post your personal details up here in the public forum).

  3. Input tip as dollar amount on itemized expenses.s

    For those of us that just eyeball the tip it would be nice to not have to hand calculate the percent. Great product otherwise.

  4. Show the current status in clear and bold in dashboard

    Instead of/In addition to the bar showing debt/loans. Could you also show the actual dollar amount - may be rounded up for beautification in big letters.
    I think a service like this really has the imperative of showing you your bottomline

    I find it hard to interpret the bar - I owe some, is it 10$, 100$ or $10000?

  5. provide an overall view of the bills (people i owe and people who owe me)

    what im describing is like a Dashboard where I can see how much I owe people and how much they owe me...

    This is similar to billmonk's "Home" page view.

    Right now, on your homepage, you’ll see a button called “dashboard” in the upper left hand corner of the page. When you click on this button, you’ll see the information you were asking about (who do you owe, who owes you, ect)

  6. Allow us to choose how people are sorted

    The groups on the left tab-like interface can be chosen to see their bills etc. But once you click on some group and make a change, they move to the top. This confuses me once I need to go to the next group and their spot has changed to another spot. Can you allow us to choose if we want those groups to be static or move according to last edited? Thanks.

  7. Skeumorphic Design

    I think the new design tries to incorporate too many skeumorphic attributes. Skeumorphic defined as un-natural flourishings added to a version of a product that were present in a state when these flourishings were necessary.

    For one, in the payment dialog, the window is made much larger through the addition of the unnecessary credit card image on top. A smaller window would allow for users to see data beneath.

    Flourishes like this are tasteless design and actually hamper usefulness.

    I think we’ve largely addressed this issue. I can’t tell if we’ve actually completed this because it’s pretty general. If you have specific complaints, please let us know!

  9. Be notified in more than one way

    Set it up that everyone can have at least 2 ways to be contacted. ie email and or cell phone/txt. And you can do notification icons on your app, that way it tells the person they have a new message and to open the app.

  10. global summary for specific friends

    If I have a friend that is part of multiple groups and owes me money in each group. It would be great to see a grand total debt for a specific friend and allow a payment to cover multiple groups (auto split).
    for right now I have to go into each group and manually add debts

    We’ve updated the friends page on the web to show a global summary. You can also simplify debts from the gear next to your friends name on that page in the web to consolidate all debts into your friendship, and then add a payment to settle up that amount.

  11. Website is barely usable on Android

    Tested on a Galaxy Nexus using the builtin web browser, and Firefox -- the top bar doesn't size correctly, so you can't actually reach the login button without doing something weird like turning your device sideways and zooming out all the way.

    Hey, so we’re actually working on a whole new Android app! Fear not, this issue shouldn’t be around for much longer.

    Thanks for letting us know about the web woes, we’ll definitely make sure this doesn’t roll into our new and improved Android app!

  13. Offline mode for mobile

    Quite disappointed when I found out your app does not work offline.

    NOTE: if you are upset that iPhone or Android offline mode does not work in the way that you want, please vote for or add a new idea about your specific issue. I suspect this issue covers most problems related to this idea now: http://feedback.splitwise.com/forums/162446-general/suggestions/9786933-improve-offline-mode-in-iphone-app

    It’s much easier for us to figure out what work is important to do next if we have votes for specific problems.

    Our iPhone and Android apps now both include offline mode. Offline allows you to add and remove expenses with existing friends and groups, even when you don’t have an internet connection. Any changes you make will be synced later, when you have an internet connection again.

  14. Show all expenses between friends

    Kindly provide a screen for Summary of all expenses or in the home screen.

    We’re very familiar with BillMonk, and while we don’t agree with them about every feature, we’re definitely working to bring some of their better ideas to Splitwise. We’ll discuss this at our next team meeting.

  17. make it easier to see list of all groups

    I just switched from classic view to the new view. I did this while looking at the group I made for our ski trip. When it switched, I was taken to the page for my roommates. I now cannot easily, intuitively figure out how to get back to the page with my ski trip group.

  18. Redesign looks great!

    I like the ribbon up top, the clear breakdown of who owes what on the left., and having all the deets in the "mostly middle" of the page. I'm not sure if this is a new feature or if I just noticed the ability to split a bill unequally, but thanks for adding it. Keep up the terrific work!

    Thanks, and thanks for the specificity of feedback! We’re still tweaking it, but the top ribbon, “mostly middle” debts, and left aligned list of relationships, and unequal bills are all probably here to stay.

    So glad to have you on Splitwise!

  19. new design wastes too much space

    I see more items in classic view. In the redesign, stuff is way spaced out. Doesn't use as much horizontal space. Why are there two lines per expense now? It seemed to work just fine before with one line per expense. I guess I don't see the advantage. A lot of whitespace between lines now too.

    The monthly headings take up a lot of space too.

    Not really feeling it, folks!

    We’ve just made a pretty big update to the new design in order to make it more data-dense and to better use the available space. Take a look and please let us know what you think!

  20. Edit group cancel button

    Add a button to the edit group page that doesn't save any changes and goes back to the main screen. Using the back button feels weird.
