This is a great web app. I was thinking, as the users who are using this app for everyday expenses management, their expense description remains same or similar. So, if you can store those descriptions and as user starts typing, you can show a probable list to select from their earlier descriptions. It will be more user friendly as then user doesn't need to type the same thing over and over again everyday or every week.
I can definitely see how that would be useful! We’ve got a bunch of features already on our to-do list, but I’ll pass on the suggestion at our next team meeting and see if we want to add that sometime soon.
I am sure there will be many users who are using Splitwise for tracking monthly expenses. For all such users, it will be good to have feature if Splitwise memorise the ‘Description’ field history for using it quickly next time.
If you don’t want to memorise each description for every different transaction then an option can be given to user to selection which descriptions he/she would like to memorise. If there is any issue with amount of data to be stored then can have a limit of like 25 descriptions per account.
Feel free to contact me on +91-8087678591. I don’t mind doing beta testing for this feature.
I am surprised how such a basic feature is missing.
There are certain shared expenses that happen on a regular frequency (rent, insurance etc), and every time the user has to type the title.
It would be great if the expense title can have autocomplete suggestions.

Suggestion from User Voice: Splitwise should also remember the category you assigned to an expense description, and auto-select that category as well when it auto-completes the description field.
