  1. Allow Manual Date Entry without Calendar Picker

    I think it would be much easier if the date field in an expense allowed you to type the date, in a format such as MM/DD (defaulting to current year) or even MM/DD/YYYY, instead of requiring the use of the date picker. Having to use my mouse and click in the date picker slows me down when adding a lot of expenses.

  2. Provide easily accessible info on the differences between memo, note, and comment

    In both the web & mobile apps, it would be great if you had a little 'I' in a circle that we could click for more info about a specific feature--specifically I was and still am very confused as to the differences between a Memo, Note, and Comment. Would be helpful if there was a short sentence or two explaining what each feature was for. Thanks for a great app!

    Sorry for the confusion! Yep, I agree that all those differences are pretty hard to understand. Hopefully it’s something we can clean up in the future. In brief:

    Memo: Basically the same as the “Description” field on a normal expense. When there’s enough room, we try to display this text right in the list of expenses (e.g. “Ryan paid Jon $20 for ‘Groceries’”)

    Notes: When adding an expense or a payment, the notes field lets you include extra information about that transaction. (Once upon a time, we didn’t have any ability to add comments at all, and this was the only way to include extra information about a transaction. Now that Splitwise supports comments as well, I think we may phase out the Notes field at some point.)

    Comments: This allows anyone involved in an expense to add more information. An expense can have many comments.

  3. Show contacts that have a balance with a different color.

    Why not show the little person icon next to the friends name with a color? Red if you owe them, Green if they owe you? Sometimes you want so see who owe you money individually and I have to go through each contact to see if they owe me or not.

    We actually tested this at one point and thought that it ended up looking too distracting, but it might be worth reconsidering. I’ll pass on a note about this. In the meantime, you can always get a list of everyone who you have a balance with from the Dashboard screen. Apologies for any inconvenience!

  4. 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.

  5. when displaying list of "All expenses" user should be able to know to whom he borrowed/lent

    currently the All expenses UI only shows the list of expenses but doesn't show to whom I borrowed/lent. To know this I need to open each expense.

    Unfortunately, there’s not usually enough room on the screen to do a good job explaining who you borrowed/lent with in that list. When you’re in a group or friendship, we do break down your lending in that group/friend. I’m not sure how we would put this together in a clean way.

  6. make scheduled bills visible

    I always forget whether I’ve scheduled a bill to recur and end up adding it twice

  7. Bug Report: % split yields error when lowering expense amount

    If you enter a % split, it's stored as $ values and throws an error when you subsequently reduce the total cost.

    Steps to reproduce:
    -add a bill of > $1
    -set it to a percentage split
    -confirm/accept the bill
    -edit the bill and attempt to lower the price to $1
    -observe that an error dialog appears complaining that the new price is less than your share of the bill

  8. Give notif when my friend logs into SW

    Give me a push notif if my friend is looking at the SW app so I can message them about any outstanding bills I need them to add to the ledger.

    We will probably implement messaging in the future, which would solve this. Not sure whether we’ll ever give users notifs when their friends log in — seems a little invasive?

  9. Payment to PayPal Money Pool directly from Splitwise

    It would be good have the option of paying directly to PayPal Money Pool from Splitwise. This way when a Money Pool is created in PayPal and an invoice in Splitwise is created to contribute towards Money Pool, users will be able to settle it through Splitwise and it will be a smooth settlement.

    Thanks for your suggestion! We’re always adding support for different languages and formats to make Splitwise more accessible to people across the globe. This sounds like something we might do in the future.

  14. Only the user who added the expense can edit it or have to approve the edit before actually editing it

    My friend can edit the expense without my concern. I think only the person who added the expense should be allowed to edit them or friend can suggest an edit and can be approved by the original writer.
    If friend edit the expense and user does not sees it, there is a loss and also violates whole transparency and trust system in the app.

  16. keep doing what you're doing!

    hey guys just letting you know that splitwise is probably the best thing that happened to us in terms of software this year!

    my boyfriend and i started using splitwise to manage our expenses for our apartment, and loved it. it soon migrated to their office, where about 10 people now form a group and use it regularly.

    now we use it in our friendship circles as well and we know at least one other sharehouse is on board.

    splitwise has made living, working and hanging out together easy and has taken the stress out of money issues, as well…

    Hey Amelia,

    Thank you for the kind feedback – it’s honestly a pleasure to hear that Splitwise has been so helpful to you!

    We definitely are planning to do both better emails and SMS-based alerts and invitations for the non smart phone users and for people who like that method of doing things.

    Just one clarification: do you mean a non-smartphone way to add bills (like an SMS version of quick add) on the go? We haven’t planned on that yet, so if that’s the suggestion, please write back and let us know.

    Cheers and thanks!
    Jon

  18. Export to CSV should not include expenses that have been settled

    Should only include expenses added after latest 0 point.
