  1. Add the app to the F-Droid store

    F Droid is an alternative app store for the Android platform. It would be great if you could add your app to F droid so that some of us that don't use the Google Play Store can easily get access to the app.

    If not, please atleast consider providing a signed APK file for direct download.

    We received some follow-up separately, and it sounds like the original use case was to be able to settle up a specific expense separately and still have Simplify debts work for the rest of the group.

    In this case, you can always use the Settle up button in the group to record a payment between any group members equal to the amount owed on the specific expense. These payments will then be included in the Simplify debts algorithm and the balances will work out correctly.

    If this is not what you were looking for, please send us a note at support@splitwise.com

  3. Editing IOUs should use the "IOU" pop-up

    After entering an IOU, click on "edit expense" in lists of debit/credit between two persons, it opens the expense editor, this isn't the expected behavior. Expense editor has too many unrelated UI elements that does not apply to IOU.

    We’re actually just planning to make IOUs and expenses use the same input form (which will be updated to support both cases better), so this will not be relevant after the next update.

    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.

  5. Transaction Privacy

    I find it a problem that everyone in the household can see all transactions even if they aren't involved in them.

    Say I share a house with two people. I charge more for one room than the other. I have created separate monthly transactions for each amount for each person. The problem is that person A can see how much person B is paying for rent, and vise versa, possibly creating household tension.

    If someone isn't involved in a transaction at all, it should not show up in their transactions list.

    We’ve decided that all group expenses should be able to be seen by everyone in that group.

    You can get around this by creating a friendship with a person if you’d like to have private expenses with people directly.

  6. Option of DISABLE HIDDEN SETTLED BILLS!

    Have the option for showing or hidding settled bills so they appear without having to click on "Show Settled Bills".

  7. extend Splitwise to support tracking bets with friends :-)

    Probably more an idea for Sportsbet, but why can't I record bets with friends and the outcome then becomes a transaction?

    This is an interesting feature but it would take a good deal of work and wouldn’t be utilized for the vast majority of users. Geographic information can be added to the notes field for each expense.

  10. Add face mapping filters on people's pictures

    Add snapchat like filters on people's faces depending on who owes money and who is owed money to add more fun to the transaction experience.

  11. Display not involved payments or setlled up payments also

    Instead of clicking and checking the setlled up bills, just display the not involved payments or setlled up payments as is. It will be less confusing when more is summarised on the page.

    Thanks for writing in with your suggestion. I don’t think this is something we will do. We find hiding settled up expenses reduces clutter and confusion, and as you note, you can always click to show settled bills. Apologies for any inconvenience!

  12. Add an option to forgive all or a specific amount owed

    Would you consider adding an option to forgive under Settle Up > Choose Payment Method?

    After clicking "Forgive" a user could then choose an amount to forgive or to forgive the entire existing balance owed by the debtor in context.

    In my case, sometimes a bill doesn't divide evenly, other times people may repay me the amount owed but miss by one cent. in both cases I end up with stray balances of $0.01 (owed to me). It would be nice if I could simply forgive said balances instead of having to adjust the bill or the amount that was…

  13. Workaround for customised category limitation

    Dear splitwise team,

    I have read feedback of different people requiring customised category by app user, which is not possible at the moment. Although you are adding new categories at request of masses.

    My suggestion is that, is it possible if you let us edit the name of already existing categories at least, as a workaround?

    Thanks for your suggestion! I appreciate the idea. Unfortunately, this workaround still presents the same issues we have when considering whether or not to add custom categories. Please let us know if you have any categories you’d like us to add. Apologies for the inconvenience!

  14. Allow creation of expenses where "you" are not involved

    There are some instances where I want to create a transaction (that I am not involved in) between 2 other people in a group.

    Right now, when I click "Add bill", "you" is one of the defaults and there is no way to remove myself from the transaction until after I actually save it or by going in and setting my part of the transaction to $0.

    The other workaround to this is to use the quick add feature to add the expense between the 2 people i.e. "John owes Bill $2 for lunch" but it seems like this should…

    Thanks for the suggestion! Most people add do not add expenses like this and including this kind of change would probably make it harder to add expenses in that do involve you. Given that there is a workaround to remove yourself from the bill while you are adding it (even if it is a few extra taps), we don’t plan to add any more optimization for this case.

    I’m a little confused in when you would need to save the expense before you could remove yourself. For both adding and editing an expense, you should be able to change the payer to someone else and open the split options to remove yourself from the split.

  15. Private option for Venmo payments

    I always settle up through Venmo but prefer to keep my payments private. I'd really like to see an option through the Splitwise UI to do this. Not sure if this is on the radar for the dev team or not. Just wanted to throw some support towards it.

    Thanks for the suggestion! If you’ve changed your overall privacy settings on Venmo to make transactions private, the web flow will use those settings. It seems like this should work for you if you want to keep everything private.

  16. Track advance payment

    Mi idea is of tracking advance payment, for example:

    I have a subscription of 10€ each month that I paid, we are in five people so we have to pay 2€ each. If a person give me 10€ for the next five months it indicates me that I have to give me 8€.

    I think it could be useful instead indicates that this payment is for the next month, so it doesn't display that I have to give money but that he gives in advance for the next recurrings payment.

    Hope I explained well

    Thanks for the suggestion. We’ve had some similar requests for “future” expenses and payments, but we don’t plan to include expenses in our system that are not included in the total balances. We don’t think we can make it clear enough why your balances don’t line up with your expenses with this kind of feature.

  17. Make a public support forum (non-feedback oriented).

    It seems the knowledge base and feedback forum are public and searchable. However I wish support questions could be asked publicly too.

  18. Settling balances

    The notification you receive after settling balances with a friend in a group is odd at times.

    The notification shows settled all balances for transactions within a common group. If you had other transactions with that person, this number is often not the same.

    Instead of showing balance from just groups it would be great if the notification showed the exact balance between the two people who settled.

    Thanks for writing in with this suggestion! I think this might cause some confusion for a lot of our users who track a lot of group and non-group expenses. I’m sorry for the inconvenience!

  19. Add 'My share' view

    Currently the expense detailed are itemized either 'You borrowed' or 'You lent'. Suggest to add a view of 'My share' to see how much I spent in a group on an itemized level (I see there is a Group Total function to see in aggregate only). Thanks.

    Thanks for the feedback! I don’t think we will add an itemized share amount to the app, though we will probably add a month-to-month breakdown by expense category at some point to the mobile apps (we have this under trends on the website now).

  20. More Payment Methods?

    Hi,

    I was curious if Splitwise would be looking into adding more payment methods to their mobile and web platforms. Venmo and PayPal are really popular, but I have friends who aren't all on the same page, plus there's a disconnect with my parent's older generation.

    Expanding to use Google Wallet/Android Pay apps or clearXchange network payments for banks (like Chase QuickPay) would definitely go a long way.

    You're already half way there with Google sign-in!

    Thanks for the suggestion! We do look at adding new payment integrations when they’re popular and have support for our kind of use (at the moment, neither Google Waller not Chase QuickPay offer integration support we could use).

    I’m declining this because we have a number of open feature requests for specific payment integrations. Please go vote for or comment on the individual integrations you would be interested in using! I know you listed them here, but it’s important for us to track each integration request separately.
