  1. Edit friends bug

    I had same friend with different email ids I was not sure how to merge them. But after looking at the new edit friend I changed one of the email id to already existing one. So instead is merging those two I lost the details of one.
    I loved your iOS app at the first glance. I've recommended your app to at least 50 ppl. Please get the android app to the same level thanks!

  2. Show contact info

    Give users the ability to see the contact info linked to each contact's name. Sometimes, I'd like to know if I'm sending a notification to someone's email or phone number but there's no way to see. For some reason, sometimes I have two contacts for the same person and one will be linked to an email address and another will be linked to a phone number but I can't tell which one is which.

  3. Add hotel option.

    I use this service for group travel expenses. It'd be nice to have a specific category for hotel expenses.

  5. that there should be a free text to enter comments

    Having a free text to enter comments helps to keep a record like what item cost how much or some basic calculation done before punching bill to save time and unncessary number of iteration

    Hey Viresh – you can already include a note with any expense you add, by entering text into the Notes field. That field is designed so that you can include comments or extra information about a bill.

    Hope that helps – let me know if I’ve misunderstood your suggestion!

  6. Add an Event and Trip feature

    Ability to create an event or a trip, where a bunch of people put in the money they spent (optional who to split if with, default all in that Event or Trip). At the end who owes who is recorded and people can settle up.

    Hey there – have you tried creating a group? Groups work more or less how you described: they allow a bunch of people to put in expenses together (with the default being split among the whole group), and at the end of the trip you can see everyone’s total balances. Check it out, and let us know what you think!

  7. Download/export Splitwise data

    User should be able to download their entire data from Splitwise if they wish to do so. This data should include friend's list, emails, all transactions, groups and group transactions etc. if possible it should be in a neatly formatted spreadsheet.

    You can do this from our web interface – just view a group or friend and click the “settings/gear” icon in the upper-right of the right-side column. In the menu that appears, click “Export as spreadsheet” to download a .csv file with all your expenses.

    We also have a “download full backup” for Splitwise Pro users under advanced features in account settings. This includes all data for the account, but is in JSON format.

  8. Money transfer graph/connection

    Split wise can have an option of choosing who's bank account details I already have with me. When this is done by all the contacts in my account, splitwise would be able to suggest multi-hop money transfers.

    E.g. If A owes $50 to C (A does not have the bank details of C), and if there is B who's bank acc details is known to A, and if B holds the details of C'c bank account, then a graph of A->B->C can be auto suggested by your software. i.e. A sends $50 to B, who will then owe $50 to…

    We actually have something like this already – we call it “simplify debts”, and you can find it on your user settings page. It allows you to choose a list of people to simplify debts with, and it will automatically try to find money transfers that make it easier for everyone to pay each other back (while making sure that everyone still owes the same amount in total, and no one owes a person that they don’t know). Give it a try!

    If you’re looking for a different feature, or if I’ve misunderstood your suggestion, let us know at support@splitwise.com – we’d love to hear what you think :)

  9. don't default to split bills, let the user change the default

    Right now (Windows 7), I always have to edit the paid by because the default is split, and 99% of the time one of the parties pays the entire thing.

    We don’t currently have plans to add a “select all”/“deselect all” toggle, but there is another way to do this!

    In the main “Add bill” form, select the field that says “With you and: [your group]”. Delete the “[your group]” token, then type in the names of the specific people that you want to split the bill with. That way, you can add a bill that is split with only those people, without having to un-check a whole bunch of entries on the “split details” screen. Hope that helps!

  11. Link to Venmo!

    This website is fantastic! One suggestion to perhaps close the "Payment" loop: Our group pays eachother using the Venmo peer-to-peer payment system. One feature of Venmo is that I can send "payment request" to my friends, and they will just "approve" the charge (at which point, I get paid). It would be great if there was a simple system within splitwise (say, a one-click button) that would send out venmo bills to group members when I try to reconcile my splitwise expenses. Also, it could automatically record the payments within splitwise, thus automatically tracking who had paid me back.

    Venmo is now available on all the official Splitwise apps (web, iPhone, and Android)! Please note that this feature is restricted to users inside the US, and that you will need the Venmo app installed on your mobile device in order to make Venmo payments through the Splitwise mobile app.

  12. Seperate dates for Bill date and entered date

    Need to have a field for Bill date and another one for Date the bill is entered. Otherwise anyone entering an expense can bury an expense in older expenses by putting a really old date on the bill.

    We actually do this already – we keep track of when a bill was added to our system, separately from the date that is given for the bill. If you’d like to see a list of recent updates to your account, you can visit https://secure.splitwise.com/#/history, and you’ll see a list of all changes in chronological order (ordered by the date they were added).

  13. Split an expense with multiple friends, without creating a group

    Great site! Moved from billmonk. The only reason most of my friends won't move from billmonk is the ability to add multiple people to a single bill/transaction without creating a group. Would be awesome if you guys can add it!

  14. Allow Push Notifications from Splitwise (instead of email)

    The current app does a great job of emailing at every action, but after a while these can add up. If possible, SplitWise should store which platform each account holder uses and notify them via push notifications. These can be short, to the point, and would always keep people in the loop.

    Plus, email is always a backup, if users choose!

  15. Allow multiple payers in expenses that span multiple friendships

    It should be possible to have multiple payers on a single bill, just as it's possible to have multiple people split the bill.

  16. Person wise History

    I Maintain a similar system on Microsoft Excel, and one feature that I really like in maintaining on excel is it gives me a history of all expenses one person has made.

    As of now, splitwise does not give person wise expense history. I would like to see a person wise split, which would show each persons split of the expense and a total sum of the month.

    Also the pdf monthly report is faulty, needs to be fixed.

    The Graphs are refreshed every month, there should be a menu to select the month for the graphical expense display.

    We’ve added a number of ways to look at person-to-person history since this suggestion was originally posted – export to spreadsheet, printable monthly summaries, etc – so I’m going to mark this as completed. If you’re still looking for different ways to look at your history, please start a new forum post and let us know what you’re looking for. We’re always curious to hear new suggestions!

  17. Recording a payment

    Suppose A paid B a sum of $ x. When that payment is recorded, the mobile app, in my opinion, incorrectly says "B paid A $ x". It should be the other way round. Its confusing if you put it that way. The overall balances settle up correctly but the description of the payment on the Android app is confusing.

  18. Add "Every 2 weeks" Feature?

    Could you add a feature that makes a bill reoccur "Once Every X weeks"? My boyfriend and I get a organic produce box every 2 weeks, but I'm not sure how I'd put that into Splitwise. I considered doubling the amount and setting it as Monthly, as a workaround, but that will turn inaccurate when it comes to longer months.

    Hi Anon,

    We have this feature, actually! “Fortnightly” means that it repeats once every two weeks. This is already in the web app – click “divide a bill”, then change “just this once” to “Fortnightly.”

    We don’t plan to add every “X” weeks unless a lot of people request it – not because it is a bad idea, but just because we have a bunch of other stuff on this forum we want to do more :)

    Thanks!
    Jon

  20. Attach a file (an image, PDF, etc.) to a bill

    Our household is paperless and we scan every bill and receipt. It would be awesome if we could attach a scan of the receipt to the bill.

    Attachments are now supported on all of our platforms: web, iPhone, and Android. When adding a bill, just click the button that says “Add an image” (web) or the button that looks like a camera (iPhone and Android).
