Fairness Calculator

Splitwise Fairness Calculator

One thing I find very useful is the ‘Fairness Calculator’ by Splitwise. Splitwise says, "Wondering what’s fair? Let us help.”. When you have any questions relating to splitting rent for the apartment, renters insurance, buying or selling furniture, going on a trip with friends or more - be sure to check it out and see what is fair to you based on your expenses and projected bills. You can see what is fair without getting into fights or arguments with friends based on who ate what and who spent what.

Splitwise eliminates the uncertainty of expenses. I’ve used this on big group trips with friends and it makes it easy for one or two people to manage the expenses, pay for group dinners and then send out bills for each person based on the app. It is a user-friendly app that helps keep track of everything.

I hope you enjoyed this simple guide on how to use Splitwise and are excited to start simply sharing bills and expenses today!
