Split by shares just as in the Web app
The mobile app would be very useful if it would work exactly like the Web app. I do not understand why you have not implemented the same way:
- all members have one share by default
- it supports decimal values, for example 0.5
Thankyou and regards
Update: this is now available on all platforms. Android does not currently allow decimal shares, but fixing this is something we plan to do.
Thanks for the suggestion! Yep, we’d love to improve split-by-shares in our mobile apps and make it work as well as it does on the web – we just haven’t gotten around to it yet :) Hopefully we can include it in an update in the near future.

if I enter 2.5 in the number of shares for one of the parties or is saved as zero. no error or warning given.

Currency conversion is so much easier with decimals in shares.
This way, you can just add the overall bill in your home currency (e. g. from your credit card) and then add the foreign currency to the shares feature.

It's currently not possible on android to use decimal numbers when splitting by shares. Decimal numbers get interpreted as zero.
The idea "allow decimal shares in split by shares" is marked complete, despite this feature not being available on android yet. I thought raising a new issue would put it back on the to-do list.

Allow shares like 0.5 shares.

Hi, I am a regular user of Splitwise along with my husband. We tend to travel with single folks and end up splitting all bills equally. It would be great if you could add a feature to combine total amounts with someone else in the group. this way, the app can do the math for us combined.
Also, is there anyway of netting amounts by calculating different currencies? for example in Europe, we need to do the forex calculations ourselves. Itll be great if the app can pull the current exchange rates and do the calculations itself.

Just noticed that decimal shares are not supported on android. made worse by the fact that it fails almost silently (does not prevent entering decimals, just sets them to zero). If you can't fix the decimal problem at least stop us entering them!
Any comments on implementing support for decimal shares in Android?
