This app could be amazing to share expenses. It is simple to use and upload data. However I can’t get my compare to to be added. They send me a link that takes me to my homepage and when I send them the link it takes them to their home page. So we both have accounts but they won’t link up.

This app is exactly what we needed!

I was looking for an app that was reliable, intuitive, and easy to implement. Many times apps go overboard with the bells and whistles and it only complicates the process. This has the perfect balance.

It's a must have app and makes uploading receipts or expenses, identifying the expense, and splitting costs anxiety free! There are a few reports that I will look at from time to time, but it's a Birdseye view of how the funds are being spent and another available tool.

Everything is in one place! I'm not always the most organized so knowing that I can rely on reviewing past history of what has been paid, charged or reviewing reports gives me peace of mind. Don't walk to the app-run!!

I like this app. I wish my ex would follow up with it and add his stuff in. My complaint is that I can’t finish an expense upload on my iPhone it doesn’t show the entire screen and I have to go in to modify/edit the expense to fill in each category.

For example. I’ll add the title and the expense amount and then can’t scroll down, it will prompt me automatically to settle the expense with no other options. So I have to hit settle - then go back in to edit each section. Won’t allow me to do it all in one shot.
