Allow custom categories
User defined categories that do not fit into default categories
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Custom categories would help SO much with personal expense tracking! In the meantime, the major ones missing for me are (mentioned by others on this thread as well) books and education.

Please add books category
Like others have mentioned, I am using Splitwise to track all of my expenses. Using custom categories would be great to track and analyze expenditures.

customize expense category
Allow user to create his/her custom category in the current category list to be selected while adding a transaction. User can be able to generate category wise reports as well.
Feel free to contact me on +91- 8087678591.
I don’t mind working as a beta tester for this application. I have around 8 years of testing experience on different financial applications.

I would also really like to create my own categories.
Mainly I'm missing for Work, because I'm tracking all expenses in your app :-)
Also it would be cool, if I could set values for the "category autoselect" (which is really nice!)
For grocery you have the main supermarkets inside, but no spanish one :-) I would like to add that
Btw: I love you app!

To be able to create my own categories in order to categorize payments
Could we qdd the possibility to add a category? this would give everyone the opportunity to define the level of detail to use.ù
Anyway this app is great! Thanks!

Child related expense categories are needed. Perhaps custom categories could be added to the paid version
Short of having actual custom categories, could we have more icon options? Then we can group by icon rather than disorderly custom notes (as suggested below).
Also the various "other" categories need to be better distinguished under the "recent categories" section. They look like dupes
It would be great if splitwise would "learn" through some sort of a clasifier what categories I often use.
It would also kill the need to add a lot of keywords for every language

In some families the baby expenses are divided by Mom and Dad, and the Baby category will be excellent, thanks
It would be nice to have own categories, or have the option of editing. For example , the category "work" is not listed as a category , and this accounts for much of my expenses

I too opened this feedback section to suggest the same thing and noticed it already exists. I was going to suggest categories for fruits and vegetables, but this custom category would cover my point as well. We should be able to define custom category (same as Amazon wishlist) in addition to the existing ones.
Child related expenses are needed. Such as Childcare, Tuition, Child Support Activities or Extracurricular (to cover sports and kids classes)
As of now it only shows total expense, your share, you paid for. Maybe you can add an option to show expenses based on category like expenses under groceries, food, water, electricity etc
