  1. Add payee using Mobile number

    Allow yourself to add a payee using mobile number. Too often you don't have people's email addresses and need to add a payment owing.

  2. Adding contacts iOS vs Android

    It's kind of strange that you add contacts in iOS with their email address and on android with their phone number. So I got some doubled contacts on my phone.

    Sorry for the confusion! You should be able to add contacts by either email address or phone number* on both platforms. Is it possible that you have different contact book info on your devices (e.g. maybe your iPhone has someone’s email address on it, but your Android device only has their phone number)?

    *Adding contact by phone number may be disabled or modified in some countries where SMS invites are legally restricted.

  3. Have default currency symbols

    It's not fair that Americans get "$" and we get "EUR" :(

    Hmm…have you changed your default currency on your account settings page? If your default currency is “EUR”, then we should automatically use the Euro symbol when showing expenses.

  4. Allow scanning of bills

    When I ass expense please allow importing of scanned bill so that it can be better tracked

    If you’re using our mobile apps, you can add a picture of a bill/receipt by tapping on the camera icon while adding an expense.

    If you’re using our website, choose the “Add image/notes” option while adding a bill. The website allows you to attach images as well as files such as PDF or documents.

  5. Update the legal terms like year

    Pls update the year under settings

  6. Show only those friends on home page which either owe me money or to whom I owe money. Other friends can be hidden under 'old.......friends'

    Currently, when I select All Balances.. in the drop down above my friends list you show friends with whom I've settled up balances too. You should only show those friends who either owe me money or to whom I owe money. Other friends can be hidden in that menu at bottom. Like that, the list will shrink and will probably show me in one view all friends with pending balances..

  7. Export to excel

    There shall be an option of exporting the balances to excel in a similar way as "detailed statement of bank account".

  8. make it easy to see all expenses ever

    Sometimes I want to go way back in the expense history without needing to keep clicking "see more" I just want to see them all in like a csv or something. It might also be nice to be able to see certain types of expenses, like all the ones marked as "rent" or "utilities".

  10. Multi Currency

    I wish there was a way to convert multi currency into one home currency to square off debits.

    Splitwise does support currency change/conversion features. There’s 2 types of currency operations:

    Currency change - this will simply change the currency on ALL your bills/expenses to a desired currency. For example if you have an expense between 3 friends for USD 100 and you use this feature, the bill amount will simply change it to EUR 100. This feature is useful for cases where you or your friend made a mistake while setting the currency earlier and now simply want to correct that mistake.

    To use this feature, simply click on your name on the top right on our website and navigate to the ‘Your account’ section. Here, you’ll find an option to ‘Set all bills to EUR’ in the ‘Advanced’ section at the bottom. This feature is free to use for all Splitwise users.

    Do note that this change is IRREVERSIBLE. Once you choose to change your…

    Update: on mobile, groups now show all balances on the group screen.

    This makes total sense – leaving it under review to see how many other users need this.

    Best,

  13. Adding a participant to a bill shows several options for that same participant

    Hi,

    Often when I add someone to a bill on Android (filling the "With you and" field) I tend to get confused on what to select from the autocomplete.

    For example, I input a friend's name (already using Splitwise) and I get several options for that friend, including several e-mail addresses he owns. Even after I learned that the first option, the Splitwise persona, is usually the best, this still confuses me.

    I think a solution to this would be to have different icons shown next to contacts in the autocomplete - the Splitwise logo for Splitwise accounts, and just…

    Update: with the Android 4.0 release, the address book icon is now an envelope to make it a little more clear that this will invite a new person

    This is something we do plan to fix, but it’s stuck on some odd technical issues so I can’t promise a solution soon. For now, as you noted, the first entry is the correct one.

    Thanks for the suggestion! Within each month, expenses should be listed in date wise order. If you’re seeing something different, please submit a ticket with a screenshot of the issue.

    I’m assuming this is an issue when adding expenses? If so, you can click on the equally token when adding an expense and choose who is involved in the expense.

  16. option to delete settled bills permanently

    I have some friends with whom I have settled up. Still they appear on my home tab with remark settled up. Either there should be an option to not to see settled up friends on home tab. or to delete settled bills parmanently.

    see if we can have this.

    Update: this is now available on Android with the 4.0 release!

    On the website and iPhone app, we automatically hide friends/groups that you’ve been settled up with for more than 30 days. This feature is currently not supported on Android, but is planned in a future update.

  17. Sync users' email and phone numbers.

    Some of my friends have registered using their email IDs and others have used their phone #s. Every time I add a friend, I am required to enter the correct credentials with which they have registered.
    It would make a great app much better if these details could be synced automatically.
    One way could be to take the user's permission and update the phone number upon installation/update.

    Our system remembers the multiple email addresses and phone number a user has associated with their Splitwise account so they can be added by any of these pieces of information. However, these are still dependent on the user adding them or accepting an invite from another email address. Also be aware that they are under the control of the user so they can be removed from their account if they do not want this information there which will prevent them from being added by it.

  18. Put a basic calculator that pops out while writing the total expense

    Sometimes, a calculator is needed to add up all the trip or shopping expenses which has to be distributed amongst some.So below the description, there can be a button next to expense which can pop out on click. We can do all the calculations and when we press okay on the calculator, the same amount will be reflected in the expense area.

    Extremely sorry about the mess up! The crash on iOS 7 with the latest release was a mistake, and should be fixed in a release that has already been submitted to Apple and is pending review. As soon as the update becomes available, the app should start working again on iOS 7.
