  1. Custom keywords for auto categorization

    Splitwise already detects words like "pizza" or "bar" to set a category, but it doesn't know location specifics. Thus would it be great if I were able to set my own keywords like "Shop XYZ" > groceries or "McMurderBuger" > Dining out.

      Great idea! To be honest, it’s a lot of extra work to create a custom user-by-user system (maybe a good idea for the Pro version?), so that’s not likely in the near term. But if you have suggestions for words to add, please feel to email us at support@splitwise.com or add them to the comments. We also review the system periodically and add new “magic” words when we think of ones to add.

      Best,
      Jon

    • Add friends without email address or phone number

      I know that it might be a user acquisition choice, but it is very annoying to not be able to add someone with just their name (i.e. with no email address or phone, so that they don't receive an invite).
      I find that the user experience is affected a lot by this and I am switch back to another app because of this despite how good splitwise is overall.

      There are indeed several use cases where I would like to add people without contact details:
      - At a specific event, for example a party where I need to enter the…

        Thanks for the detailed feedback – it’s always useful to hear, and I’ll pass it on :)

        One small feature you may not be aware of: on our website, Splitwise does allow you to add group members without email addresses, which hopefully helps for the “large party” scenario. My apologies that the same feature isn’t available on our mobile apps!

      • Ability to add more than one picture

        At the moment, it seems each expense can only handle a single picture. I suggest that ability to handle more than one picture should be supported. For example, I might want to add a copy of the receipt as well as a picture of the item.

          Makes sense! Ideally, I think we’d like to add the ability to include pictures in comments, which would let you add as many pictures as you want for an expense. This hasn’t made it on to our roadmap yet, but hopefully it’s something we can consider in the future.

        • Allow login to multiple splitwise accounts

          I have a splitwise account for US and 1 for India so I can easily work with my friends back home in settling up birthday gifts and charity work. It would be great if I can have both the splitwise accounts login able for my phone app easily so different currencies balance from different account would show up.

            Hi there,

            Multiple accounts is very difficult to build on our end, so we’re not likely to implement that. We do our best to allow you to create separate groups and use multiple currencies, etc whenever you need to from the same account.

            If you have any complaints about the way that works, feel free to email us in private at support@splitwise.com.

            If you’d like to merge your two Splitwise accounts and keep both emails attached, please email us at support@splitwise.com and we can also do that for you! As of just a couple weeks ago, we’ve created the ability to support multiple email addresses on the same account, which you can access from your user settings.

          • Allow manual archiving of group

            Manual archiving of group should be allowed. If the trip is over and everyone is settled, I'd want to get rid of the group still keeping the record in archives.

              I think this is a great idea! It’s not on the roadmap yet due to lots of other priorities voted higher, but one we’ve discussed and agreed totally makes sense. Thanks for submitting.

              • sum of expenses by type

                hello :) I think it could be nice if you could summarize your expenses by type (e.g. liquors or entertrainment) :)

                  Thanks for the suggestion! We have a very basic version of this on our website right now (under “Trends” in the right sidebar), as well as on iPad. Hopefully it’s something we can bring to more devices in the future!

                • Recurring expenses with varying costs

                  Allow users to add recurring expenses that will vary in cost month to month and prompt the user for that months cost.

                    We’d definitely like to address this, but we haven’t yet found a solution we’re happy with. We’re still brainstorming, but we hope to have something to show you in the not-too-distant future :)

                  • Post a bill only once the posted date for the bill has arrived

                    When I enter a date for a bill, I want it such that the totals are updated only once the bill date has arrived. Like for example if my friend before posting the bill owed me $0. Now if I post a shared bill for say $50 and I have kept its date as 5 days in the future. I want the app to reflect that my friend owes me $25 5 days in the future, not immediately. Right now, the way the app works is that, it would have reflected that my friend owes me $ 25 right now.

                      Updating this because it’s been a while! We still haven’t added this to our roadmap.
                      As we mentioned we’ve found in testing that this behavior ends up confusing people, which is why we’ve chosen not to add it so far.

                      We’ll continue to leave this under review for further voting and comments.

                    • Edit friends name.

                      I want to edit the name of my friend as I want it so that i can distinguish between them and find out who he is looking at his name as some of my friends have the same name it is really becoming tough for me.

                        I can see how this would be a huge help for people who have many friends with the same name who refuse to add their last name to their accounts! This isn’t on our roadmap yet, but it’s something we’ll consider in the future.

                        • Add possibility for paypal.me link

                          The new service from paypal offers new possibilities to transfer money more easily to freinds and family with a link like https://www.paypal.me/username/25.43

                          It makes sense to include the possibility to settle up via this link or to generate the link as such for further sharing. (by adding the paypal.me-username to the splitwise-account)

                            Interesting. I haven’t seen this yet. It’s unlikely we’ll be able to support this as our control over how the PayPal code works is limited, but it’s definitely worth looking into.

                            • Forward a payment

                              SCENARIO:
                              Larry and Moe each paid $50 of a bill for Curly.
                              Now Curly owes $100, $50 each to Larry and Moe.
                              Curly pays Moe $100.
                              Now Moe owes Larry $50.

                              Currently, it appears you can only manually split the pymt to simulate the transaction.

                              I'd like to see a way to split a pymt to more than one person.

                                Why can't I add an unpaid bill. I don't care about integrating with my service because I doubt you'll be able to gather bills from the utility company in bfe with no web login. I should be able to add a bill that no one paid, or add a bill that I just recieved that no one has paid. then the first person to pay it can change that.

                                  We don’t have any plans to add the ability to add bills that have not yet been paid for, because we think it could cause confusion. I’m going to leave this under review for further voting and comments.

                                • connect to Google Wallet as well as PayPal

                                  Google Wallet has started supporting money transfers. Helpfully, the money goes into the wallet balance, which can then be spent directly or moved to a bank account.
                                  Anyway, supporting Google Wallet might not be possible: I'm not sure that their Payments API supports payments between individuals or if the merchant, i.e. you, would have to serve as an intermediary. But give it a shot please.

                                    As of late 2015, Google Wallet does not currently have a public API for person-to-person payments, so unfortunately there’s not a way for us to integrate with them directly. If Google adds that ability at some point in the future, then we’d love to consider this!

                                  • user may opt to clear recent activity

                                    let the user decide whether recent activity need to be cleared.

                                        We aren’t planing to add support for custom categories in the near future. We’re considering better ways to allow people to sort expenses into categories other than the ones we’ve provided. In the meantime, if there are particular important categories you feel are missing, feel free to email us with a suggestion at support@splitwise.com.

                                      • Add location to expense

                                        It would be better if we add location of where the expense is made and filter the expense then it would be more easier..

                                          Hey Krishna – thanks for the suggestion! We’ve thought a bit about location data before, and it’s something that might show up in a future version of the app. Until then, apologies for any inconvenience!

                                          Hi. Liking this service so far.

                                          Its nice keeping track of debts, however, it is not much use not knowing how to pay it. (Not everyone uses paypal).

                                          In UK and Australia, someone just needs bank account details to do a transfer. Would be nice either to have one or all of the following:

                                          1. My own account details available for my friends to see. Even if not in their own fields, maybe in a "other info" memo type field.

                                          2. Or be able to put my own comments on my friends so I can make a note of their…

                                            Storing bank account #s is unfortunately tricky, as there are some serious security concerns around bank #s here in the US and in some other countries. Still, we’d like to do it if possible. It’s not on our roadmap yet, but we’re definitely considering it for the future.
