  1. Allow the android app to rotate its display

    Many thanks for the v3 app! It looks awesome already. But I was a bit disappointed that it didn't support rotation. It's my impression that rotation in Android Apps was a simple thing to add.. (I might be wrong though).

    Hope this get's added. It's necessary for tablets :P
    .. And for my phone with a pull-out keyboard (HTC Desire Z).

    Sorry for the trouble! We’d love to add rotation support at some point, but it’s actually a fair bit of work to make sure that everything works properly when rotated. It’s on our list of possible app improvements, but it will probably be a while before we seriously consider it. In the meantime, apologies for the inconvenience!

  2. Allow us to enter payees (like electric company or gas company) to which we pay bills, instead of just individual bills.

    I pay three primary bills a month; gas, electric, and internet. If I were able to look at these companies as a "payee" such as Consumers Energy, it would be super nice. Then, if you were to add the functionality of being able to look at your "history" with that payee, average monthly expense, and maybe some suggestions on saving for bills, it would be super helpful.

  3. Get Whitelisted by AdBlockPlus

    Your advertising isn't obtrusive or annoying, and your service is super useful. You should see about getting whitelisted by AdBlockPlus because you completely deserve to get paid.

    If you click on “view full details” under the group balances on the website, you will get a more detailed list of how we think you should settle up with individual settle up buttons like you describe.

    We should probably consider showing more options after clicking the general settle up button on the group page.

  5. Expense reminder

    I made an expense with a friend who is out of reach for a month. I have already added it to Splitwise but the share has not been decided. I want a reminder after 'd' days (when my friend is likely to be back) that the amount in the expense needs revision. Is this currently do-able?

    I can see why you would want a reminder in this case. This isn’t doable at the moment, though you could add a comment to the expense that you need to update it.

    We’re really loathe to add “do it later” features in general to the app because if you get into the habit of putting off entering data (which is the most annoying part of any app like this), you can wind up with a pile of unfinished expenses.

    We have a couple of potential features that might help with this, though, so I’m leaving this as under review.

  6. Ad Campaign: International Travel

    I suggest that Splitwise produce an advertising campaign which follows a group (or multiple groups) of friends as they set out on glorious adventures using Splitwise along the way to show how powerful of an app it is. This would be a very inexpensive and potentially powerful way to promote such a wonderful piece of technology. I know my friends and I have loved using Splitwise (what we call "the split") to help us keep track of our adventures and we would gladly volunteer to go on a crazy adventure or two to show the merits of this beautiful and…

    Thanks for the suggestion! We’ve been working on marketing Splitwise, and we think trips are a great use case to show off, both for existing Splitwise users (many of whom only use Splitwise to manage their apartment) and for new users. We’ve got a number of ideas that we hope to start rolling out in the coming months :)

  7. Online gateway support for settling dues

    If you could use square case service or something similar to settle dues, it would be great, people could pay/settle dues right from your website or app - no need to step outside. Paypall is not for everyone

    We’d definitely like to continue adding more payment options, including Square Cash. Our iPhone app now supports Venmo, which we hope to bring to web and Android as well in the near future, and we may start working on another gateway after that. Until then, our apologies for the inconvenience!

  8. Add regular payment tracking function for non-split expenses

    would be great if I would be able to add payments I make for myself as well. this would allow me to use SPLITWISE for all expenses, currently its 20% split, 80% expenses for myself. of course the split ones are more actionable but some information on the other expenses would greatly help...

    in the splitting screen there could be another field I PAY MYSELF.

    in the enter detail screen I would just need an optional field to be able to categorize my expenses.

    and in the OVERVIEW screen it should show how much was spend you paid XX,XX $"…

    Hi there,

    Several people would love to use Splitwise for personal expenses, and we’re always interested to hear about this. So far, we’ve stayed away for just the reason you say – the ones owed to others are more actionable. So we are focusing on that for now.

    I’m aware that some users input expenses with just themselves, and list themselves as the “payer” as well as the only “ower.” The only place these expenses can be seen is on the “all expenses tab.” But yes, seeing charts and such would be nice in that case, and that’s hard to do right now.

    Thanks for the suggestion, and we’ll leave the under review for now.

    Cheers,
    Jon

  9. Add group AND other friends to expense

    Say I'm sharing a meal with my roommates and some other friends. We split the bill using splitwise, and now my roommates owe me money, and so does the other friends. I'm behind in the "Roommates" group, so I want the part of the bill involving my roomies to appear in the group, and the part regarding my other friends to appear individually under "friends".

    Adding the group to the bill simply translates to whomever is in the group, and now there are two seprate expenses being tracked, which is confusing.

    Could it be possible to have an expense listed…

    This is actually tricky for technical reasons, because of how we organize and handle expenses on our servers. Group + friend expenses aren’t very common from what we’ve seen, but I’ll pass on the suggestion and see if it’s something for our long-term to-do list.

  10. summary of all the expenses per category

    It would be very usefull to know how much each one has spent since the creation of the account for each category.

    Interesting idea – I’ll pass it on at our next team meeting!

    In the meantime, you can already view monthly category summaries on the web by going to a friend/group/all expenses and clicking the “Trends” button at the top of the right-hand column. Then click the “view full charts” link at the bottom of the right-hand sidebar.

    Alternately, you could try exporting your expenses with any friend or group to a spreadsheet, and then building charts from that.

  11. Average balance of a user

    Add a stat which shows a user's average balance. This will actually imply monetary behaviour of a user over a period of time (and hence his generosity or lack of it). It's an easy to implement and yet cool feature.

    Interesting idea! We definitely like encouraging people to be responsible about paying each other back :) We’ve also considered a graph of your total balance over time, which would accomplish some similar things. We’re a bit tied up with Android work at the moment, but I’ll add this to our list of possible future improvements.

  12. Hiding of types of expenses and/or Favorites

    Hi, I think it will be useful if you can hide some of the expenses you won't be using at all or as an alternative, there may be one more category - favorites and there you may put the ones that you use most. Great site!

  13. Currency settings should affect the calculators as well

    Just a minor probably cosmetic issue. I saw that button "Set all expenses to <currency selected>"

    I was kinda bummed as I thought if I clicked that button, the calculators will also follow the setting but it does not :(

    Sorry for the trouble! You’re totally right – right now the calculators always use $. I’ll add this to our list of to-dos, and we’ll try to fix it to show the correct currency symbol soon :)

  14. Forward a payment

    SCENARIO:
    Larry and Moe each paid $50 of a bill for Curly.
    Now Curly owes $100, $50 each to Larry and Moe.
    Curly pays Moe $100.
    Now Moe owes Larry $50.

    Currently, it appears you can only manually split the pymt to simulate the transaction.

    I'd like to see a way to split a pymt to more than one person.

  16. Make the "Add a Bill" pop up div draggable

    When I click the orange "Add a Bill" button that brings up the pop-up div, many times I need to look at what's behind it as I type my new bill. Currently, I'll start typing, have to close the window, look at an old bill, and then open up the add a bill button again and start typing the bill all over again. If you could make the div draggable when the header is clicked and held, that would be awesome.

    *** Note to developers: It only takes one line of jquery code to do this (and it's cross-browser of…

    Thanks for the suggestion – this would definitely be nice!

    Unfortunately, I suspect it may be more than just one line of code, as there are places where we use custom positioning logic for our pop-ups (to handle sliding sub-menus and such). Still, I’ll add it to our list of possible improvements for the future :)

  17. make it easier to look through historical data.

    My roommates and I are having trouble verifying who owes who what. We're considering moving back the google doc that we had because that interface is so much easier to look at historical logs.

    Is there no way to just see a table of the history between two users? If there is make it more prominent.

    Sorry for the trouble! Just to clarify: it sounds like you’re using a group, but want a better way to view only the transactions between two specific people, correct? I can pass on that suggestion.

    Two existing features that might help somewhat (both web-only, and not in our mobile apps):

    - Web only: In a group, you can hide all expenses that don’t involve you. Just go to your group, then click the gear/settings icon at the top of the right-hand column, and click on “Hide items not involving me”.

    - Web only: You can also export all your bills to a spreadsheet. Go to your group, then click the gear/settings icon at the top of the right-hand column, and click on “Export as spreadsheet”. That may help if you’re trying to “verify” the total balances of each group member.

  18. add keyboard shortcuts

    Keyboard shortcuts are a great way for power users to take full advantage of the web app, and would be especially helpful when batch adding many bills at the same time (eg multiple receipts). Check out the javascript library mousetrap for a quick and easy way to add them.

  19. Delayed Viewing

    It would be really cool if the monthly reoccurring bills could have a delayed notification. For instance, if I put in a bill due on Oct 10 (reoccurring) it would actually show up as a transaction for the involved parties on Oct 3 (one week early, or any set time). That way it doesn't say my roommates owe me for a bill due over a month away. Thanks, great app!

    Thanks for the suggestion! I’ll pass it on to the team at our next meeting.

    For now, you can sort of do this already for future copies of recurring bills. When adding a recurring bill, you have the option to set a “Reminder” period (e.g. “Remind me one week in advance”). When Splitwise sends out the reminder for the next bill, it’ll add that bill to Splitwise at the same time. As a result, your next bill will be posted exactly a week in advance (or whatever time period you choose). Hope that helps!

  20. Show today's balances

    It would be nice to have the option to show the money owed in current day. As an example, I have a 1:1 group and there are some upcoming bills, and it only shows up the total owed money including those bills. I want to have the possibility to see how much do I owe (or get back) today, including only the bills already paid.
