  1. add messages

    It would be cool if there were like a message board so everyone can post anything, things like "Could you pay me by the end of the month?" or "Im broke at the moment, hold on pleasee"... so everyone in the group can see them

    We have something called the whiteboard that the group members can use for this very thing! At the top of the right-hand sidebar, click the speech bubble icon – it’ll bring up a screen where you can record a message.

    We do plan on adding more functionality to this in the future (like a time stamp, a history of messages more like a chat, etc). If there is something else you’d like specifically, let us know!

    You can download a .csv version of your expenses with any friend or group – just visit that page on the web, click the settings/gear icon next to their name, and choose “Export to spreadsheet”.

    You can also download monthly PDF summaries for groups by clicking the “view as PDF” link in each month’s header.

  3. adding people to an expense

    I'd like to be able to add people or groups to an expense after it's been created. Many times my friend adds me instead of my boyfriend who will actually be paying for something.

    Hi Loic,

    You can do this for a group by setting the “Simplify Debts” toggle in your group settings to on. This will make it re-simplify after each transaction for expenses associated with that group. I hope this helps / is what you meant by the suggestion.

    For non group transactions, Splitwise forces debt simplifications to be manual, and we plan to keep it that way. In a group everyone see exactly what is going on and why the balances are the way they are, which is why we can afford to make it automatic.

    I hope this helps!

    Cheers,
    Jon

  7. allow creation of monthly 'sheets' within a group to easily track group expenses by month

    (And no, I don't want to use the spreadsheets :) )
    Right now, we re-create the group each month after settling accounts- it would sure be easier to just create monthly accounts sheets which can be individually settled.

    Thanks for the suggestion. We do have this on the website right now. If you go to you group, there’s an option in each month header to show balance changes for that month. If you settle each previous month before the next month, this will just be the balance for that month.

  8. Adding to a group

    Suggest names of people already existing in the other groups. This makes it easier to add and faster too.

    For US users, the mobile app imports phone numbers and allows you to invite friends with those phone numbers. Outside the US, we do not automatically import phone numbers, as we’ve found there’s a very high failure rate with sending international SMS messages (lots of people fail to include their country code in the number, or enter a phone number that cannot receive SMS messages).

  10. Decimal point in amount entry

    I'd probably be easier and less confusing if in the amount entry when adding a bill, the decimal keyboard (UIKeyboardTypeDecimalPad) where shown instead of only numbers.

    Update: we’ve moved away from the ATM style input field.

    I’ll pass on the suggestion! Right now our number input is designed to work more like ATMs and some other banking apps, where numbers fill in from the right as you type. Sorry for any confusion!

  11. Migrating from Buxfer to Splitwise

    Hi. I'm a longtime buxfer user and have got all my roommates on it too where we track our shared expenses. I have been looking recently at splitwise and the design in IOS looks fantastic. I would like to move to splitwise from buxfer. Is there an easy way to do that? Like export csv from buxfer and import into splitwise ? I have almost 7 years worth of transactions in buxfer and so don't want to lose them when coming to splitwise.
    Please help! Thanks

  12. Add tax information as well

    there should be a provision to add tax paid as well, also a provision to split tax based on the number of items.

    Tax can be added and split when adding an itemized bill. Itemized bills are currently web-only, but we hope to bring them to our mobile apps in the not-too-distant future.

  14. Non-Even Splits

    Great app, but it desperately needs functionality to include debts that are NOT between every member of a group. For example if someone bought ingredients for a group meal that not everyone in the group ate.

    It just needs check-boxes with "who does this debt apply to?" or similar.

    Hey Isaac – Splitwise does this already! Just tap on the “Split equally” button when adding a bill and you can change the split in a variety of ways: excluding people who weren’t involved, splitting by shares or percentages, etc. Hope that helps!

  15. Make the default home page as the Dashboard page

    Instead of showing the balances with one of the friends when I click on "Home", it would be more useful if the Default Home page and the landing page when I log in is the Dashboard page - it saves time and quickly gives me the overall status of my balances

  16. Group members

    When I see my Dashboard, I see that the individuals in the group membership show that they owe me 0.00 whereas inside the group they owe me some money. Can you have that reflected outside of the group in the Dashboard so that I dont have to go inside to check who owes me how much.

  17. depreciation calculator

    When we quit house, there will be some purchases made for room like TV, Refrigerator etc. And any one guy will take this. We need depreciation calculator so that we can calculate its worth when we are leaving and the guy who is taking that can pay us.

  18. Recognize gmail addresses with or without periods

    My friend invited me to Splitwise using my gmail address xxx.y.z.x@gmail.com. When I tried to log in using xxxyzx@gmail.com (same address, but Google lets us put periods for easier dictation and understanding), Splitwise did not recognize this as the same account. Confused, I created a separate account using the email address without periods, only to find that now I have two Splitwise accounts. Having the ability to add multiple emails would also address this issue.

    Update: sorry for the delay! We now handle this correctly.

    Definitely a good suggestion – we’ve had similar confusion with “@gmail.com” vs “@googlemail.com” in the UK and some other territories. We hope to add support for multiple emails later this summer, and better support for Gmail specifically.

    Update: on all three platforms we now hide settled expenses behind a tap and also hide friends/groups that you have been settled up with for at least 30 days.

    Whenever you fully settle up with another person, Splitwise should automatically hide all your old bills and clear them from the screen. (Right now this feature only works on the web and on Android, but we’re working on bringing it to our iPhone app ASAP!)
