Trip Splitter is an easy way to share and manage expenses while traveling with friends. There are lots of travel expense splitter apps, but none that have the ease of use and full functionality of Trip Splitter. Trip Splitter was designed  from the ground up to intuitively let you specify and manage travel expense items - who paid for the item and who participated in the expense.  And at any point, just turn the iPhone, Touch or iPad sideways to see the simplest number of payments for everyone to get even.

Trip Splitter Features

Unlimited number of travel splitter/participants:

 - everyone gets a colored button

 - simply touch people's buttons to signify their participation (using) and paying details

 - people can be payers-only or participants-only or both

 - multiple people can be payers

 - splits can be evenly spread (automatic) or unevenly spread (assisted)

 - turn device sideways at any time to see who pays who to even up

Travel expense items are easy to create and edit:

 - create items even faster by touching buttons in the bottom bar.

Our Trip Splitter app was highlighted as one to use on your spring break! Check it out.

I LOVE this app - recently went on a trip around New Zealand and it was becoming a nightmare to keep on top of who owed what, so we scoured the app store to find one that did the job. After trying about 3 other ridiculously complicated apps found this little beauty - BEATS the others hands DOWN! Only thing you need to understand is that each colour represents someone on the trip.. (remember to add them at the beginning), but then you just whack in the amounts & who paid & it works it all out for you. Rather clever. And a huge time / friendship saver when you are all confused days later. *****

The best thing about the iphone is how it makes my life easier, and Tripsplitter is definitely another app that helps with that. I used to just use iphone notes to write down i.o.u's whenever I went on trips with friends, but that is a thing of the past with Tripsplitter. I just punch in who paid for what and who split the expense and at the end of the trip everything is calculated for each person on the trip, no math required (:

Highly recommended, it is quickly becoming one of my favourite utility apps.

This thing is ssssweeeeet.  You can keep up with your own expenses when you're travelling or use it to remember who paid for what in a group.  If you want to split it up, just push a button and it does the work for you.   Since I use my I-phone all day long, its easy to enter the big items, and say good bye to messing with receipts.
