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.
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"

your application is really working fine and doing a great job.... till now this expense is giving the spent money and the share of the team members in the event.
I think you can think a bit ahead and provide an option called Earnings or Income.
I will keep it in simple words: lets say I am creating a group called Self Expenses and updating my daily transactions, at the end of the month if I want to check and compare my income and expenditure than I am clue less as I have only option to add bills but not income.
If you guys can create a Self Expenses Group and Set that by default, people can add their Income first and than their self expenses, which can addict them to use splitwise though they are members of the group or not.
Now every thing is in place in your current web app, just to add Self Expenses in the group and create a provision to add the income. Just like a update or patch.
Hope this will increase the use of splitwise.
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
