a setting that would automatically send a reminder every week or so for bills
We currently send automatic monthly reminders, but we’d love to add an option for weekly reminders at some point, as well as potentially other options.

some time people will forget about the amount they need to pay to others and also it doesn't look good to remind them about the same so if automatic reminder is incorporated in the Splitwise then hopefully it will be helpful so that the app automatically reminds about the amount they owe for others

Splitwise should automatically send notifications to people who have not settled up. I suggest automated reminders because it take the social pressure off of people to ask for such small amounts that inevitable add up. For example, I had multiple groups where multiple people owed me $2-$5, but because they were such small amounts I felt like a jerk asking people to pay me $3, but then everyone cumulatively owe me almost $30.
Sometimes people forget that they have pending bills to settle and its a little embarrassing to keep asking them. this would be like a gentle reminder that automatically goes out after a week of unsettled bills for people whom we owe money or who owe us money.. that way everyone is notified to settle bills on time.
Sometimes friends think that just because they owe you money on Splitwise they don't have to pay.
It would be nice to set a universal reminder for all my contacts to pay me; every week, 15 days or each month. And the ability to let them reply a message back from this reminder.
When i add new contacts it will show them the fallow: "User XXXX has a PayMe reminder every week, this reminder will only be shown up if you owe him/her".

App should send weekly, fortnightly or monthly reminder to people to settle their balances.
In friend setting there should be an option of sending auto reminder
Set-up scheduled reminders for pending bills or payment. This would really help the users. I was looking for it today and could not find it. I'm not sure if I'm looking at the right place.
This will be a killer feature for me. I have carried hundreds of dollars balance for months on billmonk and carried it over to splitwise and kinda feel awkward sending reminders. It will be great if the system can send this on its own if user wishes to do the same.
Good job on rest of the updates in recent weeks.
