  2. Ability to change who you owe money to

    When simplified debt is on, it'd be great to be able to change who you owe money to, ie select the person that you will settle up with. This will allow couples to settle up with each other first.
    Otherwise set preferences on who each person will settle with. Ie A always settles with C is C is owed money, balance to whoever else.

    Hi there Scott,

    This is an interesting idea, and thanks for your feedback. It makes sense for cases where, for instance, one person lives in the same city as another, so it would be easier to manually assign the debts than to let Simplify Debts do its thing.

    One work-around you can use it simply ignore the recommendations, and just pay who you want to settle up with; Splitwise will automatically re-adjust to accommodate your choices.

    That said, I’ll leave this open for other people to upvote if they’d like it, but we’re not at all likely to do this because it would be a large change to the way we handle debt calculations.

    Best,
    Jon

  4. Sorting order

    On the home screen, the owe-ees should rise to the top, then have contacts listed in alphabetical :)

    Thanks for the suggestion! I’ll pass it on at our next design meeting.

    For now, if you’d like to quickly view only the people you have balances with, just tap the “you owe” or “you get back” cell above the list of people (where it lists your total balance), and the screen will update to only show the relevant people. Hope that helps!

  6. Poor show up of "friend's page" to review expenses, for group expenses

    When i am viewing all my dealings with my friend, the non-group expenses show up perfect. But the group expenses are not shown expense wise. They simply show up like "groupname : moneylent/borrowed".

    Now when i click on that group I expect to see ONLY those expenses which are with that friend, but alas I am flooded with all group expenses!

    Maybe the friend's page itself should break down group expenses.

    Sorry for the trouble! We’d love to provide a more detailed breakdown of group debts in the future, though unfortunately it’s trickier than it may sound at first. (In particular, it’s hard to support this feature for groups with “simplify debts” enabled, where the amount you owe someone often can’t be explained as a list of specific items.)

  7. Improve offline mode in iPhone app

    Right now, when you add an expense on iPhone when you don't have a working internet connection, the app tries to save the expense for 30 seconds before giving up and adding it later. Please make the app sync expenses in the background instead of making me wait until it gives up to add another expense.

  8. Put the frequently used currencies on top

    Me and my boyfriend are both belgian (euro), i am living in the UK (gbp) and he is living in the us (usd). This means we use these three currencies very often. When I add something in splitwise, the default currency is euro, and i have to scroll down a lot before I find the gbp or dollar. Something similar for my boyfriend. It would be very convenient if these three currencies would be on top of the list instead of in the middle of the alphabetical list.

  9. Custom categories and total overview

    I totally like the possibilities of the splitwise web app to show the trends and a monthly overview of the group's total. It would be really awesome if you could also add this overview to the iPhone app. I would also like the ability to split the bill unevenly like it is done in the web app.

    Since you doesn't want to enable custom categories I want to request some categories because I have a lot of expenses that doesn't fit in the given categories e.g. party, medicine & health, computer, sport, clothes.

    Keep up the good work, this app…

    Thanks for the suggestions! We’d definitely like to make some further improvements to our iPhone app, and I’ll pass on your category recommendations as well.

    P.S. There’s already an option for “Sports” under “Entertainment”, just so you know :) Hope that helps!

  10. Pick a date using calendar layout (i.e. the layout in calendar apps), replacing the date/month/year scroll

    It will be easier to pick a date using calendar layout, as sometimes if we use date scroll, we may miss the date/month/year and need to scroll it again.

    Thanks for the suggestion! I’ll pass this on – I know we already include totals for how much each individual person paid/owed, so it would make sense to include the total of all expenses, too :)

  12. More robust graphs/trends on mobile

    The ability to see YTD spending, break down by cost type, etc. would be great. Also, perhaps a spreadsheet view of expenses.

    Thanks for the suggestion! Our website currently has a few more advanced charts and graphs (totals by category, printable monthly summaries), and our iPhone app has a few basic charts as of v4.0 (group totals, export as spreadsheet). We’re hoping to bring similar features to Android soon, and to add more features as time goes on :)

  13. Improve offline mode: Allow adding offline friends

    Need to have a complete offline mode to add offline friends and single handedly record and manage all group expenses.

  14. Statistical data per category of expense.

    Instead of naming the bill, make it so that you choose a category and add a comment. then export statistics per week or month for every kind of categorized expense so that we can have more info on the expenses.

    Hey there! We’d love to add better support for categories over time, and we already do support this to some extent. When adding an expense, tap on the expense icon to choose a category for the expense. Later, you can export a spreadsheet that includes category information about all of your expenses.

    On our website, you can also view a monthly spending breakdown by category by clicking on the “Trends” button at the top of the right sidebar, then clicking the “View full details” link.

  15. Add image/PDF from cloud storage service (Drive, Dropbox support)

    I download electronic (PDF) versions of all my expense statements (electric bill, gas bill, etc) and save them to a folder in Google Drive. It would be great if I could attach the PDF file from Google Drive (or Dropbox, Box, iCloud whatever) to an expense, much like you can already attach a photo from the photo library.

  16. Plates should support discounts too

    When we apply discount coupons, restaurants give discount on final amount. As plates doesn't support this it difficult to use plates at such time.

    Temporary workaround: Generally we subtract discount amount from tip and try to use it somehow.

    Plates is as simple and easy to use as it is because we’ve left out a number of less frequent use cases. If this gets a lot of votes, we’ll know its something a lot of people would use, and will think about adding it.

  17. Integrate with Money Lover

    If you add an integration with the budgeting app Money Lover for entering transactions that would be awesome. I'm imagining something this: if a user enables the integration then after entering a bill, air jumps to Money Lover with the transaction name and amount pre-filled.

    Sorry for the trouble! I can see how this would be useful, so I’ll add it to our list of possible improvements for future updates. In the meantime, apologies for the inconvenience!

    Thanks for the suggestion! Draft expenses aren’t in our plans yet, but I can see how they’d be useful. I’ll pass on the suggestion and add it to our list of possible features for the future.
