  1. Ability to save receipts that are not square

    Using the iPhone app you can only save receipts that are square. Could you add the ability to save receipts of all sizes? I think this is important since non of my receipts are actually square.

      Update: we no longer crop receipts on iPhone.

      I’ll pass on this suggestion. Currently, we crop everything to be square because it makes it easier to display in a nice way (you don’t have to worry about different aspect ratios, landscape vs portrait, etc), but I can understand why you’d want a non-square receipt.

    • URL to invite people outside the group to join

      I want to be able to say, "Join my splitwise group here!" and send a url. Can you please make that happen?

      • hi, I would love to be add pictures of receipts from the camera roll. Also, being able to edit friends info within the app

        Hi, I would love to be add pictures of receipts from the camera roll. Right now, the app only allows you to take pictures on the spot. You cannot use the ones from your camera roll.

        Also, we cannot edit friends info on the app. If we select a wrong eail adress it cannot be edited/changed on the app. We have to login online to do so. So being able to edit friends email addresses within the app would be great too!

          • Insert a grand total for all expenses for a group

            It would be nice to see a grand total of all expenses for individual groups. I realize this can be done by exporting the data then adding it up, but it just seems like an inefficient process that can be eliminated by inserting a simple sum function.

              Group totals exist as a feature on both iOS and Android, and on the website, you can see totals in a group by going to “View printable summary” from the month header above your expenses in the list, and choosing “all time” as the date range on the top right corner.

            • Split an expense equally with individual $ or % adjustment

              Use-Case: Utility Bills where in 99.9% of the time it is split equally, except in the case of individual-specific overage charges.

              I would like to be able to set the bill to split equally, then add/subtract either a finite $ amount or a % to one person, and then (here's the important part) see the amount the other people owe automatically adjust to still be split equally (amongst the remaining parties) such that the leftover amount is brought back down to $0.00 automatically.

              A competing service has this feature and it is very useful to not have to compute manually…

              • Group receives external money

                I am in a 3-people group and we think it would be useful to have an option "receive money". Because when we receive money back from gaz/electricity bill, car sharing... it is not handy.

                  We support this on the web right now (splitwise.com). The person who received the money should enter the expense. They should enter a negative sign (-) before the amount. Then click ‘save’. Cheers!

                • Add optional email notifications for new expenses

                  Can you add an option to subscribe for an email option whenever an expense is added?
                  If one of the room mates add an expense in an old date, there is no way i am going to know about it except if i am keeping close watch on my balance.

                    Done! To turn on notifications for new expenses, go into your user settings (at the top right of the screen, click your name and then “My account”). Under “Notifications”, click the checkbox next to “When a new expense is added”. You’ll receive an email whenever someone else adds an expense that involves you.

                    We’re also working on notifications for any time an expense is updated, but for technical reasons those probably won’t happen for another month or two. If that sounds like something you’re interested in, let us know!

                  • add a feature to see total personal expense in a group

                    I have groups made for trips or for certain occasions and what i want to know for my records is how much have i spent on that occasion or trip. Currently, i can see only the break up of how much I spent on each expense item but I want to also see a sum of that, i.e total expense for the entire group as well for each member of that group

                          We do have this data around, but it requires one of us to bring back old group data. Please email support for help with this. We’re planning to change the way groups work with regards to this soon.

                              I like the function to email people in the group to remind them to settle up. Our rent is due on a certain day every month. It would be great if there was a setting to select this settle up email to go out automatically on a certain day each month.

                                By default, there’s a monthly summary email that goes out to all users on the first of the month. You can also set up an automatic reminder email for a specific bill by going into the date settings for that bill – click on the date, then choose a repeat interval, and you should see an option for sending a reminder in advance.

                                Hope that helps! If you’re looking for something different, or if I’ve misunderstood your suggestion, let us know at support@splitwise.com – we’d love to hear your thoughts :)

                                    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…

                                      • Rotate who pays the extra penny when the bill cannot be split evenly.

                                        When the bill cannot be split evenly between people in a group, why should the guy on top of the alphabetical order of the group members always have to pay the extra penny. Say the bill is $10. when split between 3 people, it gets divided as $3.34, $3.33 and $3.33. Now $3.34 is always the share of the guy whose name starts with an A or the guy with a name high on the alphabetical order list. This is not fair. Please correct this. (Should be simple to implement right?) With my name starting with an A, I almost…

                                          We now randomly assign the extra penny on all platforms, though on iPhone, the entire remainder gets assigned to one person randomly instead of more correctly splitting it. I don’t think tweaking this further is a high priority for us, and this should eventually be correct.

                                          The mobile app would be very useful if it would work exactly like the Web app. I do not understand why you have not implemented the same way:

                                          - all members have one share by default
                                          - it supports decimal values, for example 0.5

                                          Thankyou and regards

                                            Update: this is now available on all platforms. Android does not currently allow decimal shares, but fixing this is something we plan to do.

                                            Thanks for the suggestion! Yep, we’d love to improve split-by-shares in our mobile apps and make it work as well as it does on the web – we just haven’t gotten around to it yet :) Hopefully we can include it in an update in the near future.
