Attention iPhone users: do not update to Splitwise v1.6 [UPDATE: fixed]

Hi Splitwise users,

On Friday afternoon we discovered a serious stability bug in the latest version of Splitwise for iOS (v1.6, posted to the App Store earlier that day). We have already submitted a bug-fix update to the App Store, which is currently awaiting approval. In the meantime, we strongly encourage that existing users do not upgrade to v1.6 until the bug-fix has been released. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience.

The bug affects users who upgrade from v1.5 to v1.6. Users who upgrade may experience crashes that make the app unusable. If you have already upgraded to v1.6, you should be able to fix these errors by un-installing and re-installing the app. This has been confirmed to work on multiple devices, but please comment below or email us at if you have further issues, and we’ll do our best to help you out.

Note that these crashes do not cause any data loss – all of your information is still safe in our databases, and available via our web interface at

Updated: This has been resolved. See our follow up post.
