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
We’d love to make Splitwise better for tracking personal expenses (though we’re mostly focused on splitting for the time being). For now, your best bet is probably to make a new group for personal expenses, with yourself as the only member.

Adding some non-users to the group would allow me to keep track on some expences without asking everybody to register to the splitwise. I would just tell them at the end of vacation how much money they owe me. People in the group would just be visible as a Name given them by me, which would not be interactive, but i could split my bill on them as well.
if additional feature allows a person to record his standalone expenses, and a report generation tool gives him all expenses(split n personal) in one view, it would be amazing and very very useful.

I want to track all my expenses at one place. Be it a common expense or a personal expense. It's very difficult to track personal finances on this app right now and it is even more inconvenient to use one app for common expenses and another app for personal finance. You should definitely look at expanding into a personal finance management field.
enhance the app to show individual's expense

I agree with everyone here. We could just use another expense app but Splitwise is great UX wise, very convenient and non spammy.
I would love to see a feature which can let us manage our own expenses like credit card debts etc.
I would love to see this feature added.

Please provide a money manger as such along witht the splitwise or please provide export option to export the money spent/ money.
I understand that at the beginning this is a splitting expenses application. However as a user this is really something that would be convenient, for example when we wanna track our expenses during a trip or in a shared apartment. Moreover this feature would be an advantage compared to your competitors. Instead of just being a splitting expenses application you could become the next personal and group expenses management. Initiate the next step instead of resting on your current advantage over them!
but the personal group displays "no balance" for all transactions :( and no way to tally total expenditure within that group.
Would love to have this feature. It would make splitwise complete.
already tried that way,, problem is it won't show total amount only.. Everything is settled up..
It will be helpful, even in shared expenses.. Even after settling bill, just show "total expenditure of the Group"
Needed feature. Tracking personal expenses along with splitting expense will make the app complete. I owe so much to these people , I am owed so much and I spent so much this month.
When i create a self group, each time i add an item , i get a popup asking "do you want to add this item.. you are the only one in the group."
People come to software to handle bills for two main reasons
1. spliting bills with some one else (which u guys captured very well)
2. and most important . to see their spending per month after including the split bills.

Yes! I strongly recommend this feature at earliest.!!
As much as I want personal expense tracking, I do agree with you! Do make Splitwise more awesome :P Personal expense tracking can wait XD
