We’d definitely like to overhaul our iOS offline support at some point. It’s not actually on our roadmap yet, but hopefully it’s something we can start working on soon.
This idea makes good sense, but is technically difficult to implement. I’m going to leave it under review to see how many other users need this feature.
Thanks for the detailed feedback – it’s always useful to hear, and I’ll pass it on :)
One small feature you may not be aware of: on our website, Splitwise does allow you to add group members without email addresses, which hopefully helps for the “large party” scenario. My apologies that the same feature isn’t available on our mobile apps!Kyle Holloway commented
I’d like to be able to setup a group to split costs without requiring each member to actually set up an account. I understand this is possible from the desktop site but this doesn’t seem to be possible from the IOS app
Sorry for the trouble! It’d definitely be interesting to transfer money directly through Splitwise (without using PayPal/Venmo/Square Cash/etc). We haven’t built that feature so far because there are a lot of regulations around transferring money, and we’d need to do a lot of technical and legal work, but it’s on our list of possible things to do in the future.
Thanks for suggesting this, I’ll leave this under review for further voting.
We’d definitely like to address this, but we haven’t yet found a solution we’re happy with. We’re still brainstorming, but we hope to have something to show you in the not-too-distant future :)
I can see how this would be a huge help for people who have many friends with the same name who refuse to add their last name to their accounts! This isn’t on our roadmap yet, but it’s something we’ll consider in the future.
