  2. Removing the button to un-delete after un-deleting an expense

    Hi,

    I un-deleted an expense yesterday but was a bit confused when I saw the button still appearing in the activity page. Maybe removing the button (I totally understand the logic for keeping the deletion activity in tact) would be great and not so confusing :)

    Hey Estelito – that definitely makes sense! I’ll add this to our list of to-dos for the web app. (I believe our iPhone and Android apps already work this way, so hopefully we can catch up the web app soon.)

  3. Open APIs to other applications to split.

    When purchasing online or through apps, for Food, Groceries or any other ecommerce or shopping apps, directly provide a sdk for the apps to split the amount and easy access for the people splitting. Many a times people forget that they had paid for a group treat and then when re adding they have to check through bank statements or orders to know the exact amount. Splitting then and there would make it easier.

  4. to increase connectivity in Asia.

    Hire servers in or near Asia so that it is easier for the app to push/pull transactions. In China we had lots of trouble syncing bills.

    The internet that we had was 'ok'. It could play youtube videos at 144p, so transaction syncing should not be a problem then right?

    Anyway maybe increase the time-out for http requests.

    All the best!

    Thanks for letting us know. Unfortunately, neither of these are simple things due to how our infrastructure currently works. China is also a challenging environment because of how it connects to the internet for the rest of the world. Hopefully we’ll be able to improve this in the future.

  5. Pro Feature: Total expenses based on a filter

    It would be cool if I could create a custom filter for totaling expenses in a group. Use case: My housemate never names his grocery runs anything sane (i.e. something with 'groceries' in it so that your metadata tracker picks up on the category). I would like to create a glob/regex filter to add in all expenses with "woodman" in the title to grocery category.

    Unless your auto-categorization is perfect or this filter feature is added, the usefulness of pro-charts is limited.

    Pro looks promising so far, thought. Thanks!

    Thanks for the suggestion Julian, and for upgrading to Pro.

    I can definitely see how this would be useful for some folks. Not sure if/when it’ll make it onto the road map (we’re 4 engineers), so for now let me suggest that your roommate manually categorize all the groceries expenses they don’t name something ‘common’.

    Cheers, Zoe

  6. Integrate with money minder

    This is a personal finance tool. Would be great to synch to this application and pull in custom categories

  7. Make it so you can use the iphone app upside down

    This may sound a bit odd, but it's trivial to enable in xcode, I think.

    I often use Splitwise on my ipad. Since you only have an iphone app, that's what I use.

    I often prop up my ipad with the charging port facing up in portrait mode so I can charge it without the cable interfering. This doesn't work right with Splitwise, which will not run upside down like other ipad apps will.

    I believe this is just a check box in xCode.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the clear suggestion. Makes sense to me, but also probably slow for large accounts.

    Leaving open / under review to see how many other folks want to vote for it.

    Best,
    Jon

  10. Javscript

    Why on earth is all of your javascript on the main page and that too without encryption ?

    Hey Kshitij! The reason our JavaScript is included in the main page is mostly because of how Splitwise /used/ to work a few years ago – we used to include a lot of customized code depending on exactly which user was loading the page. We’d like to move our JS code to a separate page sometime soon, mainly to improve page loading/caching performance.

    Also, we may obfuscate our JavaScript code at some point in the future, but there’s no way to actually encrypt JavaScript in the browser – your browser has to be able to read the code in order to run it. Obfuscating JavaScript files can be useful for improving load time, since the file sizes are usually smaller, but we also enjoy keeping our code readable, especially since it lets other people look at your front-end code and learn how it works. (There isn’t any secure information in…

  11. Provide easily accessible info on the differences between memo, note, and comment

    In both the web & mobile apps, it would be great if you had a little 'I' in a circle that we could click for more info about a specific feature--specifically I was and still am very confused as to the differences between a Memo, Note, and Comment. Would be helpful if there was a short sentence or two explaining what each feature was for. Thanks for a great app!

    Sorry for the confusion! Yep, I agree that all those differences are pretty hard to understand. Hopefully it’s something we can clean up in the future. In brief:

    Memo: Basically the same as the “Description” field on a normal expense. When there’s enough room, we try to display this text right in the list of expenses (e.g. “Ryan paid Jon $20 for ‘Groceries’”)

    Notes: When adding an expense or a payment, the notes field lets you include extra information about that transaction. (Once upon a time, we didn’t have any ability to add comments at all, and this was the only way to include extra information about a transaction. Now that Splitwise supports comments as well, I think we may phase out the Notes field at some point.)

    Comments: This allows anyone involved in an expense to add more information. An expense can have many comments.

  12. Show contacts that have a balance with a different color.

    Why not show the little person icon next to the friends name with a color? Red if you owe them, Green if they owe you? Sometimes you want so see who owe you money individually and I have to go through each contact to see if they owe me or not.

    We actually tested this at one point and thought that it ended up looking too distracting, but it might be worth reconsidering. I’ll pass on a note about this. In the meantime, you can always get a list of everyone who you have a balance with from the Dashboard screen. Apologies for any inconvenience!

  13. Show today's balances

    It would be nice to have the option to show the money owed in current day. As an example, I have a 1:1 group and there are some upcoming bills, and it only shows up the total owed money including those bills. I want to have the possibility to see how much do I owe (or get back) today, including only the bills already paid.

  14. when displaying list of "All expenses" user should be able to know to whom he borrowed/lent

    currently the All expenses UI only shows the list of expenses but doesn't show to whom I borrowed/lent. To know this I need to open each expense.

    Unfortunately, there’s not usually enough room on the screen to do a good job explaining who you borrowed/lent with in that list. When you’re in a group or friendship, we do break down your lending in that group/friend. I’m not sure how we would put this together in a clean way.

  15. Bug Report: % split yields error when lowering expense amount

    If you enter a % split, it's stored as $ values and throws an error when you subsequently reduce the total cost.

    Steps to reproduce:
    -add a bill of > $1
    -set it to a percentage split
    -confirm/accept the bill
    -edit the bill and attempt to lower the price to $1
    -observe that an error dialog appears complaining that the new price is less than your share of the bill

  16. Give notif when my friend logs into SW

    Give me a push notif if my friend is looking at the SW app so I can message them about any outstanding bills I need them to add to the ledger.

    We will probably implement messaging in the future, which would solve this. Not sure whether we’ll ever give users notifs when their friends log in — seems a little invasive?

  17. Payment to PayPal Money Pool directly from Splitwise

    It would be good have the option of paying directly to PayPal Money Pool from Splitwise. This way when a Money Pool is created in PayPal and an invoice in Splitwise is created to contribute towards Money Pool, users will be able to settle it through Splitwise and it will be a smooth settlement.

  18. Add categories for each individual itemized item

    When you scan a receipt you may have gone to a store and bought multiple categories of things, like groceries and household goods. You should be able to indicate which items on a receipt are which category.
