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 email@example.com.
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.

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
