Add support for bills recurring every n weeks (where n is a positive integer)
I can currently add weekly and fortnightly recurring bills, but not every 3 or 4 weeks.
Thanks for the suggestion – this definitely makes sense! Our recurring bill system is pretty basic right now, but hopefully we’ll have a chance to spruce it up in the future. It’d be great to support more flexible kinds of bills (every 3 weeks, the last Thursday of every month, things like that).

There are some expenses and bills that are charged quarterly at a fixed rate so I believe adding a quarterly reccurring expense would be really helpful :)

Please add half-year as recurring option. Thanks!

Minha sugestão é vocês colocarem na opção de repetir o valor mais opções tipo além do mensal, semanal, quinzenal.
Porque não colocar opções ao qual você pode escolher para o valor repetir 2x, 3x, 4x ....

I live in an area that sends electric bills and w/s/t every other month. Other things like insurance might reoccur every 3 or 6 months. Being able to specify that would be great.
There are some common recurring periods that Splitwise doesn't yet cover. For example, many car insurance policies renew every 6 months and estimated tax payments are quarterly. These would likely help families and couples more than roommates and it wouldn't be too costly to implement as static options if I recall the recurring code correctly.
A more complex feature could allow for a repeat pairing between an integer and period e.g. repeat this expense every `6 weeks` or `4 months`.
If it helps w/ prioritization this is currently easy to work around. I simply have 2 car insurance expenses six months apart that each repeat yearly and if I didn't set it up myself I wouldn't know the difference until I had to edit one or stop them.
A recurrence that is more complicated would be half-month expenses like those that take place on the 15th and the end of the month. I don't currently have a use case for this in mind beyond paychecks if that's how you're using your Splitwise account.

I’ve got several transactions that happen every 4 weeks (instead of monthly) and some of the frequencies can be further customized (e.g. Amazon’s Subscribe option). These aren’t covered by the current options (weekly, biweekly, and monthly).
A solution could be adding more weekly options to that list (say up to 16 weeks) or changing the repeat to be like “Repeat every <N> <days,weeks,months>”
Hi can you please add frequency - every three months on iOS?

This would also be helpful for every X days, because for example some companies bill every 30 days.
Put the installment option. This is useful when you make a purchase in which month by month you pay a part of the expense until you reach a total. Simply in the option of recurring charges, put the option of a certain time in which that expense will exist.
Example: I buy something in 3 installments, so when loading the expense, I put it to be repeated monthly (since the installments are monthly), but only to repeat it 3 times. In this way, it will be automatically charged for three times, month by month, without the need to eliminate this recurring expense after 3 months, since that expense will only exist in those 3 months,
i have an cost that happens every 3 months, and would like the ability to set that. Right now i either have to divide the cost in 3rds and put it monthly or set up 4 different costs that happen yearly.
Hello, I would like to see this too. (Especially the ability to add a recurring expense every 30 days (instead of monthly). I would be willing to pay a bit extra for this ability.
Can you add "6 months" in the list of recurring period?
I have a particular case that this would be handy. But also instead of adding more options to the recurring combo, it would be nice to be able to customize. 2, 3, 4, 6 months... Thank you!

My utility company bills me every other month, so it'd be great to set that up as a recurring bill instead of having to enter it manually every month.

Could you add more options for recurring bills? Ideally a freeform box. I've just gone to change a bill from fortnightly to three weekly and discovered the options are quite limited!
