Disagreements over bills are not uncommon and can lead to a lot of frustrations developing between friends, but it doesn’t have to be like this.
As long as you can come up with an equitable way to split the bills and divide household chores there should be no reason having a roommate shouldn’t be an enjoyable experience.
With this expenses splitting app you can easily track who paid which bill and how your bills should be divided. This Splittable app for iPhone is also compatible iPad and iPod touch. Let's dig deeper into this app with our Splittable app review.
They do not take into consideration the unique budgeting needs faced by roommates. Splittable not only does this, it does it very well.
It combines a simple user friendly interface with a color-coordinated bill list that makes everything flow nicely and makes it easy to distinguish one payment from another at a glance.
Before you can start using this app you will have to register and create a login and password, which seemed a little strange and unnecessary at first until I realized this was so you could share the account with your housemate which is actually quite a nice feature.
If you’re working out how to divide bills among two or more roommates you’ll want to be able to share updates instantly and this is a good way to do it. The only real issue I had with the app was that there wasn’t really a good set of instructions. This app will require 7.1 MB of available space on your iOS device.
After you get past the login screen the first thing you’ll want to do is enter any roommates that are living in your house and send an invite for them to join the household.
Once they accept they will be able to access any payments or changes to payment arrangements you make, and you will be able to do the same with them. It all flows pretty nicely once you get the initial set up out of the way.
Adding a bill is pretty simple: you just tap on the menu icon in the top left corner, then tap on the plus sign in the right corner, choose which household member is paying the bill, and enter the amount and any other required information about the bill.
At any time you can tap on the dashboard in the menu to view bills that have been paid, payments that are upcoming, and any other information relating to the household. It all works extremely well and is a great way to track shared bills.
