For over a year, users have asked us “when are you going to support Windows Phone?” Miron stepped up and did it himself, using our open API. Splittr is a 3rd party app not developed by us, but it works with your existing Splitwise account and everything should more or less work with Splitwise as normal once you sign-in with Splitwise (just like a “Login With Facebook”). We like the UI he designed – it’s a very “Metro” look.
A few other notes:
- Miron tells us a Windows Phone 7 version will also be out soon. For now, this is just for Windows Phone 8.
- It has a tax/tip functionality that we don’t have yet – cool!
- This is actually the 1.0.9 version. After a small update, the app now supports supports groups as well as friendships.
- Users who have multiple groups will notice a missing feature – you will not be able to sort expenses/balances by that specific group, as you can in the website or native Splitwise apps. However, Splittr will tell you the group when you view a specific expense, and will let you select a group when you add one.
Our APIs are still not fully public, because as Miron discovered, they are not documented very well and are still changing quite quickly. But if want to build your own app that works with Splitwise, or adds a feature that you think Splitwise should have, let us know and we’d love to send you the link with some explanation on how to use the APIs.
