  1. Allow % addition on iphone app

    I really like the % interface on the web app but I cannot seem to get my iphone app to do it. Would be very helpful!

  2. There's too much white space on the new design

    There's no reason to separate everything onto different lines for a single bill, and there's no reason to have the entire center of the screen be nothing but white space. It would be nice to see more than a small handful of items on the screen at the same time

  3. Make it clearer how group members I added will sign in

    If it sends an invite email to then, I am unaware. I am unsure if they are able to log in and see everything or not.

    I love the new interface! I haven't run into any issues yet, besides what is not yet finished. Also, I love the fact that you acknowledge the fact that I have an adblocker in a completely non-intrusive way and suggest that I help out by using word of mouth. By not making me turn the adblocker off, it makes me a lot more likely to suggest it and, perhaps, turn it off anyway and…

    Update: we have made it more clear when invites are being sent out and now display some additional information when users have not claimed an account to help resolve these kinds of issues.

    Thanks Michael,

    I think this is an awesome idea. We are working now on the simplest way to give others visibility into a list of expenses and to make it a non-confusing process to be invited and to invite.

    Glad you liked it. Don’t feel a need to click on the ad – in fact, that’s a fake ad anyway. :)

  4. Make the date bigger in the new version

    New version looks great, but I find the individual dates hard to find when scanning - important for me because I usually add in transactions in bulk by quickly checking where I left off and whether something is already in there.

    Thanks!

  6. Specify items on expenses

    Hello, I have been using this amazing tool for almost a year, and I've got some suggestions that might be useful:

    1 - Be able to specify which items where in the expense for more clarity, and also optionally the expense group for the items, for expenses with items that belongs to different groups.

    2 - The user should be able to create customized expense groups.

    3 - I use SW with a friend, but not every expense is shared, so we give eachother the receipts so we can remove what we don't want to go to the site as…

    I’m not sure we did these all in the way you requests, but we do have features that solve this in the app.

    1. You can add itemized expenses, though only from the web (we are unlikely to bring this to mobile)

    2. You can create groups, though I’m not sure this solves things that way that you want.

    3. You can now comment on expenses, so disputes can be resolved in the expense itself.

  7. "Zero Balance" icon and separate grouping

    I have 13 groups/trips set up now. We create one for a specific trip and then settle accordingly. I also have groups for 1:1 expenses.

    It would be great to have an icon that denotes if the balances in that group are zero or not.

    As the number of groups grow, this will help in identifying which ones need to be looked at.

    We’ve just released a preview of our new, redesigned web interface, which lists the balances for all of your groups in a sidebar so that you can easily see if you’re settled up. It also hides groups that have been inactive for more than 30 days, so that your screen isn’t cluttered with old inactive groups. Check it out at https://secure.splitwise.com/preview/ and let us know what you think!

  8. Why being bound to groups?

    Thanks for the great site!, could you please remove the need for groups so that I can record debts between me and a specific friend without the need of adding him to a group?

    Thank you!

  9. email individual on bill share

    I can't able to track all the bill's shared by my friend. Everytime I need to come to splitwise webpage to see the bill's. You could add a option on the setting page about send email for each bill shared in the group. Some people like this, some may not. I prefer to receive email on each addition of new bills.

  10. Create a group 'messageboard' for your web app

    I absolutely love your site, it is beyond useful. What would be great for the web app is if it were possible for group members to have a place to discuss charges or a to do list or even schedule events. Nothing too in-depth, just something that allows users to communicate and keep a record of it.

  11. Split an expense equally with individual $ or % adjustment

    Use-Case: Utility Bills where in 99.9% of the time it is split equally, except in the case of individual-specific overage charges.

    I would like to be able to set the bill to split equally, then add/subtract either a finite $ amount or a % to one person, and then (here's the important part) see the amount the other people owe automatically adjust to still be split equally (amongst the remaining parties) such that the leftover amount is brought back down to $0.00 automatically.

    A competing service has this feature and it is very useful to not have to compute manually…

  12. List more transactions per page

    It would be great to have up to 50 or so transactions per page. It stinks when the transactions in a month wrap to the next page. Or list the pages per month instead of just by page. Great app though. We use this website A LOT! Thanks for all of your work.

  13. Have a drop-down calendar for selecting dates

    When selecting a date for an expense, you should be able to select from a calendar rather than typing in a full date.

  15. Limit or track past edits

    One thing that I have been meaning to suggest is to track latest edits somewhere. Currently, anybody in a group is able to go back to several months before and add expenses. It can be difficult to find where the change was made, and if a person is dishonest about it, it can be very difficult to pinpoint exactly where things went wrong. We discovered this problem in our apartment quite early on, and made rules about it, and thankfully none of us are dishonest :)
    But I was thinking that it might be beneficial/helpful to either limit how far…

    There is now a recent activity feed and more notifications you can get that will show you changes in your accounts. Expenses also get detailed notes on changes when they are updated so you can be sure you know what’s different.

  16. Split bills by percentage

    Users should be able to enter percentages for expenses (i.e. Alice owes 40%, Bob owes 60%) rather than exact amounts.

    We’ve added better support for splitting bills by percentage in the redesigned web interface – just add a bill and choose “Split the cost unequally”. We hope to bring this feature to our mobile apps soon.

  18. Add optional email notifications for new expenses

    Can you add an option to subscribe for an email option whenever an expense is added?
    If one of the room mates add an expense in an old date, there is no way i am going to know about it except if i am keeping close watch on my balance.

    Done! To turn on notifications for new expenses, go into your user settings (at the top right of the screen, click your name and then “My account”). Under “Notifications”, click the checkbox next to “When a new expense is added”. You’ll receive an email whenever someone else adds an expense that involves you.

    We’re also working on notifications for any time an expense is updated, but for technical reasons those probably won’t happen for another month or two. If that sounds like something you’re interested in, let us know!

  19. 3 Things

    1) Add the ability to split bills by percentage. I hate doing math.
    2) Require members to aprove expenses. My roommate adds groceries and splits it without permission. Screw that.
    3) Add opt in expenses. Like if someone buys food and puts it out in the apartment. I should have the option to join into a split. Get it?
    - You better read this. Or I may build my own splitwise.

    Hey Joey,

    I’ve split your suggestion into three parts, so that other users can find them more easily and vote on them individually. Here are the links, with quick reponses underneath:

    1: http://splitwise.uservoice.com/forums/162446-general/suggestions/2862672-split-bills-by-percentage
    You can actually split by percentage already, though it’s not documented. In the “add expense” pop-up, just enter percentages instead of exact amounts for the total that each person owes. Splitwise will divvy up the cost accordingly. (We’re working on a better, clearer way to do this, too.)

    2: http://splitwise.uservoice.com/forums/162446-general/suggestions/2862679-require-users-to-approve-expenses-they-are-involve
    We’ve considered this before and decided against it, but we will be adding two other features that accomplish many of the same things: (1) the ability to receive an email every time an expense is added, and (2) a “dashboard” that shows you the most recent changes to your apartment.

    3: http://splitwise.uservoice.com/forums/162446-general/suggestions/2862702-allow-users-to-opt-in-to-expenses
    This is an interesting idea! We’re already planning to add some features that will make…

    Thanks for the suggestion! Right now, if you’re settled up with someone and have had no activity with that person for more than 40 days, we hide them in your balance lists.
