You go on a snowboarding trip with your mates and everybody pays for different things during the trip. You come home with a pile of receipts and you’re trying to work out how everyone can settle up (and stay friends). What do you do? Get PAYBACK for the iPhone, the ultimate shared expense calculator. Just enter the list of expenses and who they’re shared between and PAYBACK automatically calculates how you can settle your debts. What’s more, PAYBACK’s unique algorithm automatically minimizes the number of transactions needed to settle your debts. IF YOU HAVE FRIENDS AND YOU GO ON TRIPS, AND YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR FRIENDS, THEN YOU NEED PAYBACK! Make sure to send bug reports and enhancement requests to email@example.com!
For years I’ve gotten together with a set of college friends. We take trips together and have always labored over how to settle up accurately. This app is really wonderful. It makes everything so painless. It takes into account every possible variation no matter who pays what, when they pay, which subset of people pay participate in a particular activity, just everything. At the end of the trip you push one button to calculate who owes what to whole and one button to send everyone what they owe.
I’ve used this app to share expenses with family members for many years and it works perfectly. You can log prepayments to the “trip fund” and all the details about expenses, like who used (and how much), who paid and when. In the end, the app tells you who owes how much to the others. Pretty simple and powerful
I frequently travel with friends. Instead of constantly splitting bills in the moment, now we can just take turns paying and track the expenses here. It can allow for couples and individuals, expenses that are only applicable to part of the group, and most anything you need. At the end of the trip, just hit Pay Back and you will get a list of who owes what to whom, in net. So simple! You could also use this for other thins besides traveling, such as event planning. Best simple app!
User interface is awful, way to many taps to get hardly anything back from the device. This review is for the developer... you have a good idea, but the interactions you put the user through are painful. Never leave the user with a blank screen... the first screen should be a new trip! (shouldn't have to hit edit or add) I like that your using the address book... (again shouldn't have to hit edit or add) also seems strange that I would have to add myself to get paid also. Your title shouldn't be new trip (it should be greyed out like with description) ( I dont want to delete this everytime I have a new trip) On to expenses... once again the screen is blank I have to hit edit... Im not editing anything, Im adding something, but how? (you have to hit edit) and then I have to click add? Yikes this is a horrible experience. Description... OK you enter food, enter an amount...friend paying for expense its me! how do I get my name into this? I cant choose me! I like the checkmark who is sharing the expense. Once your done... there is no overview of all this you have to dig into each trip to find out who what where and how. I suggest that you think this one through again. its a good idea but poor execution. Then here is the big one... Once the user has entered in all this information this application doesnt help anyone get paid, doesn't help anyone get notified, or tell the user to contact anyone or call or email anyone... You need follow through!
This app is great for all the hassle it removes from having to coordinate expenses when out with a group of friends. It is simple and easy to keep track of expenses. It has 2 features that are really missing for it to be a 4 or 5 star app though. This portion of the review is for Andrew Andrew, the 2 features I believe would be simple to implement. The first one is to show expenses by date when looking at the trip expenses. You already collect the date the expense happened, showing it and subtotaling the expenses by date would be a very useful feature. Secondly, you really need to implement a free text Note feature. It would be very useful to have a place to put for example what restaurant we had lunch at or what city the gas was filled up in. Showing the Notes after each expense would be really handy. Lastly, a Trip Report would be very handy. A quick preview of all totals for the trip and per head expense prior to going into the Payback piece would come in handy. I really appreciate the effort here. I coordinate a lot of camping trips and Golf trips and this is exactly what I was looking for. A couple of these features would make this an awesome application.
