Recognize gmail addresses with or without periods
My friend invited me to Splitwise using my gmail address firstname.lastname@example.org. When I tried to log in using email@example.com (same address, but Google lets us put periods for easier dictation and understanding), Splitwise did not recognize this as the same account. Confused, I created a separate account using the email address without periods, only to find that now I have two Splitwise accounts. Having the ability to add multiple emails would also address this issue.
Update: sorry for the delay! We now handle this correctly.
Definitely a good suggestion – we’ve had similar confusion with “@gmail.com” vs “@googlemail.com” in the UK and some other territories. We hope to add support for multiple emails later this summer, and better support for Gmail specifically.

Yes, please fix this!
Oh, and please also remember, Gmail also allows appending an alias to your username with a plus sign.
Gmail help article: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/12096?hl=en
"Gmail doesn't offer traditional aliases, but you can receive messages sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. For example, messages sent to email@example.com are delivered to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can set up filters to automatically direct these messages to Trash, apply a label or star, skip the inbox, or forward to another email account."
