Square Cash integration
Updating since it’s been a while. Currently Square Cash does not have an API that we can use to integrate. At this point we would need Square Cash to change in order for us to do the integration.
+1 to this suggestion...
+1 to Reid's suggestion

While we settle expenses,there should be a button for settling expenses through square cash application.
Once the user clicks on settle expenses the amount and the person should be automatically selected in square cash app and user can authorise the payment via passcode or password. Once the payment is completed, the records are shown in both apps.

Yes yes yes. Square cash is much better than PayPal IMHO.. Except for the unofficial $2500? Monthly limit.. Which is still higher than most people need.

It would be cool if you guys integrated Square Cash's payment ability to this app. Cash is free and way faster than PayPal. I believe that even offer an API already to make app integration easier. Love the app currently though even without cash integration!
Keep up the great dev work!

This feature would save a ton of your users' time!

I'd like to expand upon this idea a bit in hopes of an admin seeing and taking this into consideration.
Things to take into account:
a) Last month Square proved they were interested in unique/useful integrations with their Snapchat partnership so it's certainly possible to get Square's backing and a tight API integration.
b) For those who aren't familiar, Square Cash has a request feature where I can request $N from a friend and then they just have to hit Approve to send it to me.
Now onto my ideal Splitwise + Square Cash integration:
Step 1: Select someone in a group who owes you money
Step 2: Click "Request via Square" and let them choose how much to request
Step 3: Request goes off and they receive a notification through the Square Cash app on their phone that I have requested $N through Splitwise.
Step 4: They hit approve (or deny!) and that reflects back into Splitwise without the requester having to do any manual data entry.

Would love love love you guys even more if you supported square cash. Its the best!
+1. Square Cash is so much better than PayPal or Venmo. Even a mailto: like would be great! Thanks for considering!
Though you may not currently be able to verify a payment, you can (as Reid suggested) add a simple mailto link to pre-fill to, cc, subject, and message fields.
For a simple verification, add a "confirm payment" link to the email message for receiver to confirm payment.

Love this idea... Square Cash is SOOOO easy and quick. I hate PayPal and refuse to use them. Would love to see this happen!

This would be fantastic. Even a button that simply opens an email to the payee, cc firstname.lastname@example.org, and with a subject with the amount owed — all with just a mailto: link. Thanks!
