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.
maybe support the use of hash tags which you can also use in statistics, then you dont have to allow more. categories but make a statistics view based on provided hashtags so people can control their categories themselves. add the amount specified to each hashtag provided and make an overview page of that

When this is implemented, I’ll use this app for expenses as well. Right now it is only good for splitting because categories are very limited

it would be great if i can view my expenses on daily, weekly, monthly basis. it would help in keeping track of money spent.

personalizar categorías a las necesidades de cada usuario y agregar una sub-categoría para poder filtrar mejor los gastos, por ejemplo categoría gastos del hogar y sub categoría eléctricos, y poder enviar recibos o fotos de comprobantes al correo sería genial hacerlo con vínculos a las hojas de cálculo
Hugo Garcia commented
personalizar las categorías para poder ingresar alguna personal y añadirle una sin categoría

@Admin : Why don't you allow custom categories. this would also allow to cost attributed to a certain projects, e.g. Sicily vacation, East Coast vacation etc. Very valid use-case. Since there are so many people asking for it, it would be great to get your latest feedback on it. last time you replied was one year ago.

Please add custom categories! For example, we are missing "Camp" and "Tutor" for our kids
I feel like it's mostly missing leisure/personal items like a "hobbies" category.

I sent them few categories to add 6 months ago, they still have not been added...

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.
Please reconsider. For now this is all that prevents me from using the app
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.

Need custom categories for expense tracking and also search can be based on expense category type

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!
