    Love it but...

    I love and use this app constantly, to the point that it would make sense for me to use the pro version. So I did the 1 month free trial (thank you) but it didn’t seem worth the money. Specifically because I still can’t itemize transactions on the phone app, only the desktop, and the charts aren’t really helpful. In regards to the charts, if I could tap on a section of the pie chart and have every transaction that’s in that category shown - that would be Very helpful. Also, it’s not very clear on the charts if the total amount shown is the total of what Both people spent (and then split) or if it’s what I specifically spent after splitting expenses (again, would be very helpful to know/have both options). Last feedback is that it would be great if when using the itemized feature, that items could be split by a custom % instead of only 50/50 or 100/0. Fingers crossed these updates are doable! I tell people about this app all the time and it makes my like So much easier by removing the stress of remembering debts, but the above would really help a lot.

    Great app! But my friends can’t handle the minimize transactions setting.

    I recently tried Splitwise for the first time for a trip with a group of friends. Some friends wouldn’t log into Splitwise. Some friends wouldn’t check their emails. And a couple of friends couldn’t understand how everyone could be settled up if they didn’t pay back the person who originally paid for a specific item. Guys, Splitwise tells you how to settle up to reduce transactions so that everyone comes out the same. Minds were blown. I could literally sense that smoke was about to come out of their ears. Of course, it would have helped if they logged into the app, or checked their email or paid attention by the 2nd or 3rd or 5th time I told them, “Guys, open Splitwise! It literally breaks it all down for you!” Minimum transactions are not for the faint of heart. Bottom line: Splitwise is great! But after that trip, I may have lost a little bit of faith in the human race.

    Needs a tweak

    I use this app for tracking bills in a multi family home. It helps me a lot ! but what I would like to see is for example in a group, if it says Mary owes $100, I would like to know what EXACTLY $100 is owed in (such as a utility, cable, etc). It doesn’t show specifics once you put the bill in, just the total amount owed. Also, I would like the option of the user disappearing off the owed bill once they have paid. This would make it SO much easier to keep track of who paid what, instead of me typing in a note every time when a payment submitted as to what bill the payment is applied for. Thanks for reading for my suggestion. Please let me know if I am doing something wrong and these options already exist. - Jennifer

    Love it - best app for sharing and splitting bills

    The best application for sharing and splitting cost and bills with the group. We often travel in the group, and always challenged how to properly keep track of the bills, who pays, who owes. also being able to manage it in different currencies was a challenge. We tried many applications, none non-worked well until I just found a splitwise. it’s really doing the job! it’s great! we use it for trips and also manage other shared finances. it allows to settle the bill at any time. it allows to do different currencies and it allows also to attach the picture (of the bill) and add notes. It is awesome. I hope it will stay this way. love the application! Simple and provides all needs functionality. Kudos to designers and developers!

    Excellent customer support

    I sent an email to the developer to find out why expenses that that were settled up weren’t moved under the settled up area within the group. They were quick in responding and very clear in the it explanation. It turns out though that individual expenses won’t move under the settled up section until the entire balance reaches $0. This is confusing for users because let’s say you have a running total of $245 for three different expenses $45, $120 and $80. Person A pays person B $45 dollars on the 5th, then $120 on the 10th. Both expenses will still show in the ledger until the remaining $80 is paid. BUT!!!! If you add another expense before the remaining $80 is paid all of those expenses remain showing in the ledger until the balance reaches $0. What if the balance never reaches $0 because you’re constantly adding expenses that aren’t paid immediately? You end up with many many expenses showing and everyone asking you why they still show up when they have been paid. We need a way manually move expenses off the main screen for the group! If this enhancement is made to the app, I will gladly pay for Pro. Until then, it doesn’t quite feel worth the money when I have people in the group annoying me with questions about why expenses are still showing.

    Best App 1st time it was so good I’m rating it

    My friends and I went on a trip to France. We used the app. it exceeded our expectations. It is very easy to split expenses and adjust for personal increases. It allowed all of us to not worry about evening out bills and instead to take turns paying so that at the end of the trip we were almost all settled app. The app is very flexible in that it allows you to split costs between which ever group members have incurred the cost and it allows you to adjust the splits if necessary. For example, if one person’s share was $20 more than the others the app will account for that. It was also great to chose the currency. Since we where in France we used euros. Really great app even the non tech group members liked it.

    Very helpful, a few improvements

    Found splitwise very useful for settling a group cost for a wedding trip among 17 people, with numerous couples. It was ok adding costs using the "split by shares" feature for couples, however it would be better to be able to set the share amount on a per-person basis, as all couples were paying jointly. Without that feature it was annoying adding each cost, and when we had to add another party to the group I had to update all of the costs again. Also, at the end two people were owed money (myself and one other), however it was easier for me to act as the "bank" so all owed money would be sent to me and I would pay back the one other person owed. Splitwise has the "simplify group debts" feature, but that still produces a more complicated array of who owes whom. It would be simpler to communicate the final tally if there was an option to set one person as the "bank", especially since most of the people are not signed up (nor want to) to splitwise, and I am communicating the costs to them. Otherwise it was very useful and I'd use it again and recommend it to others!

    Every single month you guys split my bills so erratically. Your app constantly makes mistakes.. my inquiry is whether I’m Being blocked from portions of my group account because I feel like either your app is absolutely pointless and flaw or absurdly that it does not do its task properly in any way other than the clean look of it. Every single month there have been comically large mistakes on your part. I need to know whether your app is the most inefficient algorithm or program I have ever used in my entire life OR my roommates are trying to hide real bill prices? If it is the latter than your app is cleverly designed to be fair and is difficult to alter with and so a great tool or (I’m being very sincere and not intentionally malicious) this app is so pointless I would suggest to anyone who is thinking of using it that they would be better of PAYING for a remedial calculator rather than downloading this for FREE.

    Love it but could use some changes

    The app makes it super easy to split up expenses. You can create a group and choose who paid and who you want to split it from in that group if all were not involved. I wish it would give an option for the payer to say the bill was settled and have it close out without deleting the expense. I use it to split things with my roommates and it can get confusing sometimes keeping track when expenses don’t close. I have to make sure to add comments on them to keep track. It would be such a great feature if they would add something that would allow you to settle the bill so it would remove itself from the screen.

    Great App! Very Useful

    I travel 5-8 times a year all over the world and my friends come along too. I highly recommend this app because no matter where in the world i am, i can add expense on the go and even take pics of the receipt. I then can split it right there between my friends. Sometimes we i’ll split the charges on our credit card if we’re dining but most times we split on splitwise especially when you friends are on a budget but didn’t have enough $ to enjoy other fun activities at least i can loan them and track it then be repaid in time. it’s a great app and i always use it as my go to app! thanks so much for this.

    Great App!

    I have used it twice. The first time with good results. Second time was not effective. You have to have everyone participating to be effective. The first time a friend was the person who entered the amounts owed for each of 4 people. I didn’t do the work just paid out what I owed. The second time was between 2 people-myself and another. The other person was to be entering the amounts owed each day. She (my adult daughter) didn’t ask me for receipts/I didn’t offer receipts so at the end of our 12 day European trip, we only had entered the first day of travel. By the end of 12 days, many countries with foreign currency, we called our expenses even.

    Great app with a small issue

    I have been using this app for 3 years now and it is very simple and intuitive to use. Payment option using PayPal is great and the balance reminders a boon. Deducted 1 star because I really hate the settle all feature. Instead of creating a borrowing entry it should record a payment entry in the groups/no Group where money is owed to other person and give the sender option to record any extra amount after all balances as borrowed amount in any one of the groups the individuals share. This helps us keep track of the expenses that have been settled instead of reflecting a borrowing and then balancing all groups.

    Great App!

    Man this is such a great app! I'm using it to split the living expenses with my roommates! We used to keep all our receipts and I would manually calculate at the end of the month, but this app allows us to keep track as we go. So long mountain of receipts! One thing that will make this better is if there is like the ability to create some commonly use expenses. Im just lazy and didnt want to keep tying in "grocery" and electricity etc. Would be nice if the "Type in description" part starts to auto fill with these self created expenses, or maybe just recent descriptions, or an option for a pulldown that type of thing ovok~

    Tried it three times now

    AND IT IS SO GOOD. The simplify expenses setting and ability to add receipt photos aren’t absolute favorite features. We went to brunch and they hand wrote a receipt and if we hadn’t added the photo to the app we may not have caught that they accidentally charged us 25$ over! This is perfect for any trip where more than two people are spending money for the group. Less time worrying about being fair and more time just having a nice time with friends and/or family. Would highly recommend this app and we use it any time the crew takes a trip now!

    Just what we were looking for

    We are traveling to South America and wanted a way to split up costs considering that there were a lot of things we couldn’t split. This app keeps track of who owes the other, how much, gives the ability to pay them back and more. Since I wanted to keep track of all the finances (and not just stuff we split,) it let’s me keep track of things that we don’t split too. Also (though this might be something that just I am really stoked about,) they export everything to excel with categories, times, costs, who paid, what currency, etc.
