        you should allow users to add , delete , update categories based on their needs.
        Also give the option to view monthly expenses by selected categories (option to choose categories )
        also an option in the monthly charts to drill down the category to the actual spend items. this will allow users to analyze their spending.

        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.

        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.

        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!

        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

      • at commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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
