  1. Categorize "Hydro bill" as electricity.

    Due to Canada's history of hydroelectric generation, almost everyone refers to their electricity bill as their "Hydro bill"

    It would be great if when I enter "Hydro Bill June" is automagically categorizes as electricity.

  2. to increase connectivity in Asia.

    Hire servers in or near Asia so that it is easier for the app to push/pull transactions. In China we had lots of trouble syncing bills.

    The internet that we had was 'ok'. It could play youtube videos at 144p, so transaction syncing should not be a problem then right?

    Anyway maybe increase the time-out for http requests.

    All the best!

    Thanks for letting us know. Unfortunately, neither of these are simple things due to how our infrastructure currently works. China is also a challenging environment because of how it connects to the internet for the rest of the world. Hopefully we’ll be able to improve this in the future.

  3. Allow user to cancel setting a passcode

    When user clicks on set passcode from settings page and changes his mind not to set passcode, he is not displayed with any cancel button. The only way to go out of the flow is to kill the app. It's hampers the user experience..so I suggest to have an cancel button on Set passcode page

    Thanks for the suggestion, I can see how that would help! I’ll pass this on. For now, you can either (a) kill the app, or (b) finish setting a passcode, then immediately disable the passcode by tapping the “Passcode” button again and choosing “Disable passcode”.

  4. Feature: Credit Card charges for use abroad

    Dear developers,

    we recently completed a trip abroad and our credit card company adds a surcharge for use abroad of 1.75% - It would be great if we could have optionally selected that for CC charges.

    Best regards,
    Christian

    Thanks for the suggestion! I can see how this would be useful, though I’m not immediately sure of the best way to include it in our design. I’ll pass on this suggestion at a future team meeting and add it to our list of possible improvements.

  5. There should be a "Hide items not involving me" button for "All Expenses"

    There is no "Hide Items not involving me" button for the "All Expenses" tab. It is there for the specific groups.
    I also tried to go to the group that I want to hide transactions from and then come back to the "All Expenses" tab, but it does not seem to work.
    It would be good to have this functionality since I need to track transactions, and not just what I owe most of the time, and the alternative, "Recent Activity" tab does not seem to be of the same use. Don't know how difficult it would be to implement…

  6. Use the same format for 'details' version of payments -

    In the product today there are 2 ways to view who needs to pay what to someone else.
    1- Hovering over the person's summary page on the right hand side
    2- Clicking on 'see details' underneath everyone's summary

    The visualization for Hover is a million times easier to understand than when clicking 'get details', but I have to click 'get details' because otherwise I can't see all of the payments that need to happen all at once.

    Sorry for the trouble — the tour does get shown every time you log in, even if you’re a returning user. This was the best way to implement it at the time, and users rarely log out so we weren’t too worried about it. Hopefully we can make the logic more sophisticated some day. Regards.

  8. Make the Spending Breakdown table sortable or at least order it by amount spent

    Also, I don't see a reason to provide my name and email every time I want to give feedback…while logged in.

    Thanks for your feedback. This is a sensible request that I can see us considering next time we make an update to the spending breakdown view.

    Our support system is run by a third party (UserVoice). We don’t have a way to automatically pass them your info when you go to access support from the web app, hence the ask.

  9. I'd like to be able to add a photo with my comment on a bill

    If I over or under pay on a bill, I'd like to be able to add a photo with my comment to provide evidence of the overcharge

    Thanks for the suggestion! This definitely makes sense. Adding photo support for comments isn’t on our roadmap yet, but hopefully it’s something we can include in a future update.

    Thanks for the suggestion! I don’t think we’re likely to add all of these categories (I’d personally file these under Life → Other right now), but I could see us adding a more general category that covers these kinds of expenses.

  12. allow for selecting different tax rates in itemized bills

    In Virginia, grocery food items are taxed at a lower 2.5% rate while general sales tax is 5.3-6%. Other states like Massachusetts don't charge sales tax on food at all. This makes it complicated to input the bill on Splitwise if the receipt has mixed categories of goods. Please allow for some way to assign different tax rates for certain items (some sort of checkbox or something).

    While I can see how this would be useful, this is a low-priority feature. Itemized bills are used by a very small number of our users, but we can’t justify putting in the resources for this at the moment. We might look at doing this in the future, though.

    Thanks for the feedback! I don’t think this is something we’re likely to add, but I’ll leave it up here to see if it’s popular. We do review settle up methods periodically to see if there are any news ones we can add.

  14. Display summary in multiple rows per currency type

    I would like to see the details like you owe, you are owed or total balance in multiple rows per currency type. So that bills added in USD or INR can be tracked or viewed on summary easily.

    Thanks for the feedback! I can see how that would be useful. I don’t think we will change the summary. But we might be able to come up with a better way show you a summary of your balances in all currencies.

  15. notification update

    when someone else adds your expense then lockscreen notification should show only each person's share not the whole amount in notification

    Hi, thanks for the suggestion!
    I’m going to leave this under review to see if other people are also interested in this.
    I’m interested to know why you’re looking for this feature?

  16. Autocorrect

    Please have it use the user's phone autocorrect when typing in expenses. I misstype a lot and don't like how my autocorrect doesn't work when using Splitwise.

  17. Scale the Android app to support different Font/Displaty sizes

    I'm using a Nexus 6P with Android 7.1.2. For readability I have the font size set to Largest and Display size set to Large. The Contacts list cuts off the Contact Name and overlaps the contact information (Phone or email). The rest of the app seems to scale just fine.

    Thanks for writing in! We do periodically check for compatibility with different fonts and sizes and are hoping to resolve this issue. I apologize for the inconvenience in the meantime!

  19. Feedback

    There's no good reason why giving Feedback prompts for my email address and name once I've logged into Splitwise. Use Single-Sign On or OAuth or any of the other technologies that are available.

  20. Give the option to eliminate the $ sign

    We have multi-currency groups with different types of dollars in them. I believe my default currency is Singapore Dollars, so when I enter SGD, Splitwise changes that to $. I would rather I had the option to have all currencies displayed by their ISO symbol, i.e. SGD/USD/CAD, etc. This would remove all ambiguity.

    I’m not sure if this is something we would change at the moment, but I can see how it would be helpful in your situation. I’ll leave this open for further voting for now, apologies for any inconvenience!
