  1. Confirmation of removal of bills by other party

    Guy A adds a expense of $ 100 and splits it equally with his friend Guy B.

    Then Guy B deletes this expense saying it did not happen. Guy A does not get any notification and thus when next he logs on splitwise he does not see this change.

    Now, such changes by Guy B should be confirmed by Guy A.

    Thanks for the feedback! You should see the deleted items in the Recent activity feed with a highlight if there’s new stuff there. You can also opt-in to email or push notifications from the notification settings for expenses.

  2. Make it bigger.

    I visited the website after a few weeks, and great! I love the new changes, that I now actually decided to use Splitwise forever.

    Now that I have made the all important decision, I will start expecting bigger things. Have you ever looked at Splitwise as a place one stores ALL information about expenses, not just owing but also spending? Something like your personal account book. This would involve rethinking the structure to generalize 'an expense', and inherit 'owing money' from that. May be far fetched, but it must be food for thought.

    Kudos, again. (y)

    Thanks for the feedback! We do have some big plans in store for Splitwise. I suspect you’ll find them awesome, though they are not quite what you have listed here. The only reason I’m “declining” this is that there is no specific goal we’d be able to check off as we move forward and we do have a roadmap that will cover some of these ideas.

  3. Adding an option to have a payee as a bill

    Okay so this app requires you to select a person you owe the money too, like a roommate. I thought it would be cool, and I would need this myself, if you could add a lender or a monthly bill like a phone contract/insurance/broadband as a Payee and have it so two people can pay towards it, so you can keep track of the payments you've both made each time. For example, my partner has a catalogue, both of us have bought a computer out of it, so we both owe £400... it's hard to keep track of who's payed…

    I’m not sure what exactly your feature request is. It is already possible to keep track of split expenses such as monthly bills on Splitwise.

    Simply enter the name of the bill in the description, such as ‘Broadband bill’ and then you can add as many people as you like amongst whom you’d like to split the bill.

  4. Hide transactions from people not involved

    There should be an option in the groups' settings to always hide transactions from people that are not present, and prevent those people from seeing the transaction (or just hide the value).

    This would be helpful in a group of friends where you don't want to disclose, eg, the birthday present's value to whoever's birthday it is.

    We believe anyone in a group should be able to see any expense in that group so they can audit our calculations. If you want to keep an expense private, add it outside the group. Expenses outside the group are only visible to the people involved in the expense.

  5. Create weekly summaries

    It would be great to be able to get weekly summaries rather than monthly ones of the spending in a group, to see how much people have spent and get a weekly budget.

    Hi Katherine,

    Thanks for the feedback! Unfortunately I don’t see us offering this any time soon: monthly summaries are already very expensive for us to provide, in terms of both server power and email budget.

    Sorry for any inconvenience and thanks for using Splitwise!

    Currently we have no plans to make a Facebook app. We’re a small team of 2.5 engineers and we have some other platforms that we wish to get to before the Facebook app.

  8. Rename "Expenses" to "History"

    To ordinary non-accountants it makes more sense to call it history

  9. Have something more to fill up your page.

    There is a lot of white space on the page. I suggest that you have some more colors on the page.

  10. Request a correction on bill which is posted by others

    If User1 posted a shared bill which includes User1 and User2, User2 should not be allowed to edit or delete the bill instead User2 may request correction in the bill to the User1

    Bill may be edited or deleted only by the one who posted the Bill

    At least for now, Splitwise’s policy is that anyone involved in a bill has the power to view, edit, or delete it. We realize this can make things difficult if two users disagree on a bill – but even if editing was disallowed, those two users could still just add more expenses to change things to their liking.

    Requesting a correction is a reasonable solution, but we feel it sacrifices too much simplicity, and is too complex for the average user. For that reason, we’ve decided not to include that feature. We’re sorry for the inconvenience!

  11. New terms to be added like lent, paid off, etc.

    Usually on trips, I lend some money to one of the group partner and I always settle by adjusting the amount in rent as he's the one who pays the rent and bills. Most of the time, the settled up statement says that "X paid Y $100" though it's more like "X paid off Y $100". It may sound silly but it's bit more clear.

  12. can i edit a name of group members just for my view...bcoz right now I can see their usernames ??

    I think you should have an option of editing a name of group member just for view..I.e. it shows username.

    Hi there. On Splitwise each user gets to choose their display name. Similar to Facebook etc. We may some day implement a ‘nickname’ feature but it’s not on the road map. Cheers!

  13. allow debts to be seen in groups when they exist between two people within the group

    My friend added me to a group, but when we look "in the group" it looks as if there are no debts between us, which is not the case

    Currently in a group any user can see any expense that is in the group. We don’t want to list anything in the group screen that cannot be seen by everyone to prevent confusion and maintain privacy.

  14. Change the way Whiteboard is edited

    I think whiteboard is more useful if it shows entries with Date and username like a log / Diary entry
    Say : On Aug 22 , XYZ wrote : We need to start searching for a new roomate

  15. A better Android app

    Hi,

    Seems like you are using HTML5 or some other web technology for your android app. I have just started using your service and really likes it.

    I am an android developer and would really love to help you out if you want. You can contact me on my email -- mudit.agar@gmail.com

  16. Payment can apply to multiple groups

    My friend and I are in multiple groups together and she makes 1 big payment to me to settle our debts. However, I can only apply the payment to 1 group or no group at all, and that throws off the group balances. Can this be resolved? I've been dividing the payment manually and that is working so far.

    We really, really want users to think of groups as separate things, so we aren’t planning to add multi-group support for anything.

    That being said, if you are settling up for the exact total amount that you owe, if you do it from the friendship screen (where it shows your overall balance from all groups and expenses), we will split the payment up to settle up all your groups.

    Very sorry for the trouble! I’m pretty sure we place the “Save” button in the standard location on both iOS and Android (in the upper-right corner of the screen), so I’m not immediately sure what we could do to make it more obvious. If you have any more specific suggestions, let me know and I’d be happy to pass them on. Thanks!

  18. consider that the rent bill should be able to not be simplified with the rest of the bills

    When living with a group of people, it is common that one person pays the entire group's rent, and the other members pay their share to the one. We do not put rent on splitwise because splitwise simplifies rent, along with the rest of the expenses (the whole point of the website pretty much), but since rent is such a large bill, the one who fronts the rent wants that exact reimbursement in an account devoted to paying rent, therefore he does not want rent to be lumped into the other debts.

    In other words, give the option to set…

    This is definitely a legitimate problem, but it’s not one we’re planning to solve in the near future. Right now we’re making an active effort to simplify Splitwise, and adding a new special option to recurring bills doesn’t quite fit with that plan.

    For now, if you’d like to treat rent like a separate account, it’s probably best to actually handle it that way, either with a separate Splitwise group or offline. Sorry for the trouble!

  19. Allow multiple ways of calculating unequal splitting and multiple payers

    For example,
    In a meal for 4 people totally $60, person A ordered a drink for $14
    Then everything else is split equally between 4 people
    But person B is paying for themselves and person C

    So ideally I would be able to use the +/- function for person A
    Person A +$14
    ($44 left)
    Then use the shares function for
    Person A shares 1 ($11)
    Person B shares 2 ($22)
    Person D shares 1 ($11)

    So ideally it could be done in one step
    Person A +$14, share 1 ($25)
    Person B shares 2 ($22)
    Person C shares 1…

    Thanks for the suggestion! We’ve considered lending, but don’t plan to add it to the app. You can record lending money by adding an expense where the person you are lending money to owes you the full amount.
