Allow export of all transactions in QIF/QFX/CSV
I use PocketSmith for budgeting and personal finance.
When you think about it, a splitwise balance is like a loan/demand deposit (depending on whether you are net owed or owing money).
Since I use PocketSmith to give me a holistic view of my finances, I'd like it to reflect my Splitwise balance too (especially since I'm often owed 3 figure sums).
The easiest way to do this in an app/service-agnostic way would be to allow the export of *all* transactions, as a QIF/QFX/CSV file. Most personal finance/bugeting apps allow import from one or more of these formats.
The current per-friend/group export doesn't really work for this. And the "download everything" Pro feature returns JSON, which I suppose I could write a QIF/QFX/CSV converter for, but if I'm going to pay for Pro I'd prefer not to have to do most of the work myself anyway.
Thanks for the suggestion – I definitely understand how this would be useful. I’ll add it to our list of possible improvements for future updates.

Hi! I am just discovering this app, and so far I think it is amazing! Until now the only thing bugging me is that I can't export all the expenses in CSV and have to create a file for each group. It would be really awesome to be able to backup all the expenses (with categories in different sheets?) in a CSV file. In any case, thank you for developing this app, I think it will be very usefull!
Hmm, looks like I can roll-my-own solution using the Splitwise API + newBeta Pocketsmith API!
