Track Personal Expenses

Can we improve this so that we can use this to track our personal expenses instead? Just have another option for bill that we pay for ourselves and then this will double as a personal expense tracker easily! This made it easier so that I don't need another app for tracking expense, especially when another person made the payment on my behalf :P

        Just a small display feature on app transaction level. Currently if I pay for myself in a group, then the transaction is displayed like this: "you paid for yourself-no balance" that's all. It would be great to display it in synch with other ones like : "you paid 10 and you owe 0 or no balance"
        The issue actually is I created a group with me and my wife where I always pay for myself. If I just want to check if I added one 9.25 bill or not, I need to click each row for current month and check :(
        Can I share a screenshot here ? The idea page should have an option to add screenshot too :(

        If user have functionality to add their own expenses in the same app under another tab, then it would be a great money management app. Users don't have to use multiple apps just to split and manage expenses.

        Yes yes this. I often add in my own personal spending in the group account and have it just me owe myself, but the UI isn't great food looking at what I spent. I mostly only use Splitwise for trips so this is super helpful for tracking my own trip expenses. Also would be great to sort by the type of icon... Hotels, transport etc. Also noticed you don't have Hostel show up as a hotel icon!!

        In the friends tab, there should be a pinned thread, self, where I can log my personal expense at one go.
        It shouldn’t affect the “who owes what” factor.

        For people interested in tracking personal expenses, allow fast tracking of every expense and let them to be revised later to assign the proper group, splitting method etc.

        Allow importing of bank account reports and categorize those items ass well

        Keep the record of Money spent by the person who is using splitwise, so that he will know how many Money is being spent by him..

        Split wise is the go-to for my girlfriend and me for dealing with our shared expenses. We spend our time between about 4 currencies a year and it has been a lifesaver in keeping track of it all. My only issue, is that because I do personal accounting on top of Split Wise I have to essentially do everything twice.

        Proposal: Make an option to start an 'account' with yourself so you are not 'splitting' anything but merely accounting for your outgoings. This section would also include the data of the shared costs between you and others.

        It would be good if Split wise detects Bank/Service SMS and update it in app.
        There should be support for Personal expenses.

        It would be a great move to also allow to track personal expenses. I use another app to do that. It would be very helpful to use the same app to track my personal expenses.

        Split wise is a great app. I wish it had the facility to track personal expenses as well. I am using a different app(Pocket Expense) for tracking my own money. So whenever I spent, I have to add the bill in both the applications. If Splitwise had the functionality to track personal expense as well, it would have been great.

        Yes this will make the app more complex. Maybe, you can provide this facility in a different app. And that application can communicate with splitwise when logged in with same user. ie when we add bill in expense tracking app, we must have an option to add the same in splitwise as well

        I would love to have that option as well! Is there anything new I can do to use splitwise for keeping track of my personal expenses?

        own expenses column:

        In this all expenses will include what i will spent on day 1 to month end so that one person know where he spends more money

      • Ekansh commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It would be really be a bonus to users to also be able to add expenses or split expenses with non existant user of app to keep personal records on track. For eg . X owes me 100 bucks but since he is not in splitwise i cannot maintain a record for same. But if i can get a option to add up such spend , i can keep track manually and once its paid up i will update in splitwise as paid. It will help provide me a clear view of what i owe or vice versa. Thanks in advance.
