  1. Auto-detect category by querying previous expenses

    For example, imagine I go to a restaurant called "Alice and Bob".
    1st time I add an expense, I type "Alice and Bob" in the Description and select "Dining out" as category.
    2nd time, I type "Alice and Bob" the app may select "Dining out" by itself.

    Splitwise is still awesome without this feature, but it would definitely be something nice to have!

      Thanks for the suggestion! Yep, this definitely makes sense – right now, we auto-detect certain words like “dinner”, but we don’t do any intelligent matching based on your past expenses. I’m not sure how technically involved this would be, but I’ll add it to our list of possible improvements for the future :)

    • Bank account details somewhere/anywhere

      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.

        Like whatsapp, why not provide sign up using just a phone number / text.

        • Apply payment directly to expense/pay for individual items

          When a payment is made, you should be able to select the associated expense(s) & enter a $ amount to which expense the payment should be applied to.

            Applying payments directly to an expense definitely makes sense, and it’s a feature we’ve thought about for years, but unfortunately we haven’t found a great way to do it, even with a lot of thought. It’s difficult to support both rolling balances and item-by-item checklists on the same list of expenses – especially when different people might want to use both “settle up” styles within the same group. We also haven’t been able to find a design for applying payments directly to expenses without adding a lot of complexity, especially if paying for specific expenses is an “optional” feature and not the default.

            We do continue to think about this, so hopefully we’ll make a breakthrough at some point, but it hasn’t yet made it on to our official roadmap. We’re really sorry for the inconvenience! For now, one possible solution would be to add comments on expenses, which can…

          • support local decimal mark

            US way 1,234.56 = 1.234,56 (german way).
            Right now I can not enter "4,56 Euro" as an amount

            • Ability to select transactions from bank or card history

              Can ask users to link cards and bank accounts in order to show transactions in split wise so user can select transactions instead of having to do manual entry. Plaid makes a great API (demo.plaid.com) for this: harvey@plaid.com

                • is it possible to integrate UPI (UNIFIED PAYMENT SYSTEM) for Indian users ??

                  UPI is a payment method introduced in India to transact between users and organisation. it would simplify the transactions between users if that can be integrated to Splitwise ✌

                  • Rearrange Expenses in a given day / Add time to expense

                    Allow user to move items so that he can rearrange them in a chronological order for that day.
                    For Ex. I might add the dinner expenditure first, and then the breakfast expenditure, but would want the breakfast to appear before the dinner in the reports and charts. Being able to re-arrange would help.
                    If re-arranging is a difficult to achieve, then we can get the same done by asking user to enter time (optional) for the expenditure.

                      I really like this idea, and can see why people would want it (including myself who needs to organize everything obsessively by time). We’ve talked about doing this and think it’s a good addition, but it will be a little bit before we can get it in there.

                    • Option to choose display image for groups

                      Loved you application a lot, I would like to suggest you that, it will be great if user is allowed to change the image of any group so that it is easily identified in case I have many groups with similar names

                          Hi there,

                          We’re open to doing P2P integrations if they become popular and if the payment system creates a good way for us to build the integration.

                          I’ll leave this thread open to see how many other people would like FB messenger payments.

                          Best,
                          Jon

                              We don’t currently have plans to transfer money directly through Splitwise. We do integrate with PayPal and Venmo in the US, and we just integrated with Paytm for our Indian users, these allow you to make transfers to other users if you’ve connected with your bank account. We hope to continue to integrate with other payment providers in the future!

                            • Track Personal Expenses

                              Can we improve this so that we can use this to track our personal expenses instead? Just have another option for bill that we pay for ourselves and then this will double as a personal expense tracker easily! This made it easier so that I don't need another app for tracking expense, especially when another person made the payment on my behalf :P

                                We’d love to make Splitwise better for tracking personal expenses (though we’re mostly focused on splitting for the time being). For now, your best bet is probably to make a new group for personal expenses, with yourself as the only member.

                                  Bitcoin is not often used on Splitwise but we would like our currency handling to be better as some currencies do not even have decimal points and some countries use commas. We’ll add this to the list of ways to make currencies more flexible but it’s not possible to say at this time when we’ll be able to implement it.

                                    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 a group chat feature

                                    if you have a group chat feature irrespective of the comments it would be very helpful

                                    • allow expense to be tracked to a given budget

                                      i.e. if our household (group) budget is 100 USD a month, split wise shows us how much we have spent of that to date - how much has been spent as allocated to the grocery expense category vs what was defined as the budget. Would be great if we could set budgets for each expense category.

                                      Would make a great tool even better at helping us control spend! Seeing a visual budget is much more motivating ;)

                                        Budgets definitely make a lot of sense. They’re not a feature on our roadmap yet (we’re a tiny team, and still focused on other improvements), but hopefully they’re something we can work on in the future.

                                      • To add the time at which bill is added by a person along with the price and date of the bill.

                                        When a bill is added, only the date and price of the bill is shown. I suggest you also add the time of the bill.. like when the person is adding the bill on Spiltwise (by App or by PC).
