  1. Adding Pictures for "payments"

    when we make a payment, it would great to add pictures. right now, for a payment, theres only the one your website has. I would like to add a picture of a bill, bank confirmation, etc. Please allow us to add pictures for payments as well.

  2. Add an option to filter out expenses/payments by user

    It would be a nice feature to allow viewing only expenses and payments related to any particular user if required

    We’ve added this feature in the web redesign! Click “other actions”, then “hide items not involving me” to see only the transactions that involve you.

    (We haven’t decided yet whether to allow you to see only the expenses that involve some /other/ user besides yourself. If that’s a feature you’d like to see, let us know!)

  3. add more currencies

    some currencies are missing, like for example Thai Bhat. may be good to add thee as well.

  4. Print Expense Statements/Reports

    I think a really great feature would be the ability to print statements or reports. For example in my case I manage expenses for our whole house. A couple of people in my house are not necessarily tech savvy and some of them just are too lazy to log on to splitwise. If I could print out a report for the week, month, or year, kind of like an invoice sort of thing and just stick it on their door it would be really helpful. I also think this would be great for backing up information because lets face it.…

    Printable statements should be available on the right side of the month header in a group or friendship. Please let us know if you have any trouble with them.

    The "Pay via Paypal" feature is the best! Add that to the mobile app to make this service a thousand times better!

  6. Specify items on expenses

    Hello, I have been using this amazing tool for almost a year, and I've got some suggestions that might be useful:

    1 - Be able to specify which items where in the expense for more clarity, and also optionally the expense group for the items, for expenses with items that belongs to different groups.

    2 - The user should be able to create customized expense groups.

    3 - I use SW with a friend, but not every expense is shared, so we give eachother the receipts so we can remove what we don't want to go to the site as…

    I’m not sure we did these all in the way you requests, but we do have features that solve this in the app.

    1. You can add itemized expenses, though only from the web (we are unlikely to bring this to mobile)

    2. You can create groups, though I’m not sure this solves things that way that you want.

    3. You can now comment on expenses, so disputes can be resolved in the expense itself.

  7. Split an expense equally with individual $ or % adjustment

    Use-Case: Utility Bills where in 99.9% of the time it is split equally, except in the case of individual-specific overage charges.

    I would like to be able to set the bill to split equally, then add/subtract either a finite $ amount or a % to one person, and then (here's the important part) see the amount the other people owe automatically adjust to still be split equally (amongst the remaining parties) such that the leftover amount is brought back down to $0.00 automatically.

    A competing service has this feature and it is very useful to not have to compute manually…

  8. Summary on Group Page.

    1) What I had missing on the Group page is that, it doesn't have a summary of who owe who and what amount. You mention a total amount owed by a person in the group but to whom. ANd if one wants to see to whom he owes, he need to calculate the total amount from different bills paid by one person.
    I would prefer to have a kind of summary that lets say:
    you owe X€ to John.
    you owe Y€ to Michelle.

    2) On the dashboard, the bill are not well shuffled with each one after some items…

  9. Maintain currencies between webapp and mobile app

    whatever the default currency chosen in the webapp, needs to be maintained in the mobile app. Alternatively, you need to include the default currency option in the mobile app.

  10. Tax and Tip

    hey guys love the work you are doing. One tiny suggestion is that for tip and tax calculation, I would prefer to enter the amount and not the %.
    Also when entering data the widget or small screen that the site switches to is too small, please make the experience full screen.

    This will now be the case for all new bills added for bills with multiple friends. We don’t currently plan to update older split bills to the new, cleaner format.

  14. Rename friends

    I can't find a way to rename friends. Somehow a few got added under only their first initial during import from Billmonk. If there is a way, it should be made clearer!

    We’ve added the ability to edit details of friends who have not yet logged in. Just visit the friendships settings page for the friend that you wish to edit, and you’ll be able to change their name or email address.

    Note that once a user has logged in, only that person can change their name or email address.

  16. On the Divide a Bill box, remember what is entered in the first two boxes.

    Once I enter amount and description, if I go and add people the entered information is cleared. Please remember the information or change the layout so that adding people is done first.

    Splitwise does support currency change/conversion features. There’s 2 types of currency operations:

    Currency change - this will simply change the currency on ALL your bills/expenses to a desired currency. For example if you have an expense between 3 friends for USD 100 and you use this feature, the bill amount will simply change it to EUR 100. This feature is useful for cases where you or your friend made a mistake while setting the currency earlier and now simply want to correct that mistake.

    To use this feature, simply click on your name on the top right on our website and navigate to the ‘Your account’ section. Here, you’ll find an option to ‘Set all bills to EUR’ in the ‘Advanced’ section at the bottom. This feature is free to use for all Splitwise users.

    Do note that this change is IRREVERSIBLE. Once you choose to change your…

  18. Link contacts by Phone Number

    I'm sure you have usage statistics on this, but I'm guessing the primary users of your app are phone-based, and not PC-based (except for features currently not possible in the apps).
    Due to this, contacts should be linked by phone numbers, and debts can be sent by push notifications (another idea I've posted). That'll allow easier addition and maintenance of friends.

    You can now invite friends by phone numbers and receive push notifications. There are still some issues with matching invites to users that we are working on.

  19. Allow selecting currency for each specific bill

    Hi,

    I live in the border between Switzerland and France and travel many times with my friends. We constantly need the option to choose between Swiss Francs and Euro for each specific bill. It it also very practical for trips (Eastern Europe, etc.)

    We are a big group trying to look for alternatives to leave bill monk (as almost everyone here, by what I have seen in the forums). So far yours looks the best, except that we really need this option (as well as the other ones I have voted).

    Cheers,
    João

    You can select the currency for each bill on web, iPhone and Android, though the Android app does not currently display the correct currency (expect an update that displays correctly in the next few weeks).

  20. Ability to save receipts that are not square

    Using the iPhone app you can only save receipts that are square. Could you add the ability to save receipts of all sizes? I think this is important since non of my receipts are actually square.

    Update: we no longer crop receipts on iPhone.

    I’ll pass on this suggestion. Currently, we crop everything to be square because it makes it easier to display in a nice way (you don’t have to worry about different aspect ratios, landscape vs portrait, etc), but I can understand why you’d want a non-square receipt.
