I suggest you ...

Search expenses!

You're building a great site, and you guys are quite responsive to feedback. Congratulations!

Is there a way to search the expense history by keyword? It's such a basic feature that I just assumed it exists somewhere, but after looking around for a while I think it's missing as of now. It would be great if I can search by keywords such as say "grocery", or sort by category, or sort by persons involved etc.

    It would be really great if I could search through old bills such as "october" or "natural gas" or "janine" or "2014 hot dogs mayo stopwatch kiddie pool lesbian wrestling losing bet" and the like.

    Not sure if you have it already but please provide an option to search a particular expense entered previously based on a keyword or category of expense. Makes it easier to track down expense when necessary.

    when i want to search a bill that i posted in the group long time ago, then there should be some option to search bill. it would be great if that option is also there

    Agree! Really want search back! Seems like a practical baseline functionality that shouldn't be taken away for pro memberships. That scrolling is not convenient. Trying to figure out how much j gave my nephew for his birthday the last 2 years so I can make it equal on his 3rd birthday.

    In addition to Search within app, the use of Spotlight search for deep links in ios 9 will be a topping over the cake. Eagerly waiting for both the features!

    Did we not have "search expenses" in the previous version? Its handy and required as I may want to search for mobile bill for the past few months, or may be I want to search for grocery expenses and the split, etc etc. Need the search expenses back.

    Eagerly waiting for this feature.
    Its been way longer than " later this year."

    Other than that Great solution :-)

    Searching by cost would be great too. I look at my credit card bill at the end of the month, see something I'm not sure I've entered already, and/or is unclear, and the easiest thing would be to search through my splitwise expenses by the amount, to see if I did enter it

    Can the search functionality please be modified to look at itemized items, as well? It's pretty common for me to need to look up, say, "Corn flakes" (to see who took themselves off the corn flakes on previous bills).

    Also just assumed this would be present. Seems like an obvious feature to include.

    Is there any progress from the admin comment from June 2013 (search available on iphone but not yet on web or android)?

    One thing you can do until we get around to fixing this on the web - if you use the "All Expenses" view, you can Control+F find the expense you need. You just might need to go to the bottom and do a "load all expenses" if it's an old one.
