  1. 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.

  2. Contacts list organization

    Show the people who owe me money at the top of the list and probably group them- owes me, I owe and settled up , like it works in the splitwise iphone app. Also, provide scroll to browse through the lsit of friends.

  3. Group versus Relationship Functionality

    I don't like how you can have an individual relationship with Person A, but then also have Person A in Group 1, especially if it does not automatically show the relation b/w the Person within the Group and the individual relationship.

    E.g. I live in an apt with 4 people (Group 1 = Person A, B, C, D)
    - Group 1 splits a $60 bill evenly (paid by Person A)
    - Person B loans Person A $40
    - Person B owes Person C $10

    In essence, if you have am individual relation with each of the people within the group,…

    Groups still do not show more general balances, but your friendship balance will include all balances from groups. We also settle up all groups and the friendship if you settle up completely with a friend.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Print Expense Statements/Reports

    I think a really great feature would be the ability to print statements or reports. For example in my case I manage expenses for our whole house. A couple of people in my house are not necessarily tech savvy and some of them just are too lazy to log on to splitwise. If I could print out a report for the week, month, or year, kind of like an invoice sort of thing and just stick it on their door it would be really helpful. I also think this would be great for backing up information because lets face it.…

    Printable statements should be available on the right side of the month header in a group or friendship. Please let us know if you have any trouble with them.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Show historic monthly charts

    The current month breakdown is nice, but it would be good to see the historic trend of the expense categories. (e.g. grocery spend over the past 6 months).

    This is now live on the web! Just click the “charts” icon in the upper right of any given group or friend page – you should see “previous” and “next” buttons that enable you to view the chart for any month.

  14. please study bill monk first.

    Please go through bill monk first.

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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!

  20. 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!
