New Feature: Member Coefficient

We are introducing a new feature to Receipt Ninja for Android: the member coefficient.  Each member now has a coefficient with default value of one. The coefficient allows the member to represent a sub-group such as a couple (coefficient is 2) or a family (coefficient is the number of family members).

New Feature: Inactive Members

Receipt Ninja for Android 2.0.1 has just been launched with a new feature: inactive members. You can now set members as active or inactive by editing them in settings. Once a member is set as inactive, he/she won't be included for future splits. This may happen when some members leave the group but they had shared expenses with others.

Tips for advance/cash/partial payments, etc.

Recently, we received many users' requests to add the options to make advance/cash/partial payments to offset balances. You can actually do this with the current version of the app. Here are some scenarios:

Let's say we have 3 people A, B, C in the group.

1. A makes an advance payment of $100 before the trip:
    a) Create a new receipt with $100;
    b) Add a new category called "Advance Payment" or whatever you like;
    c) Choose A as the payer and share "evenly";
    d) Save the receipt.

2. During the trip, one day B wants to clear his debits ($30) with C:
    a) Create a new receipt with $30;
    b) Add a new category called "Cash Payment" or whatever you like;
    c) Choose B as the payer and share "unevenly" with C only;
    d) Save the receipt.

Basically, you can make any kinds of payments to offset the balances using the even/unevenly splits.

Let us know if this solves your expense splitting problems:)

Review on Androidmarketapps
If you ever gone on a trip or planned a party with a couple friends, you’d know how difficult it is to calculate how to split the costs. Receipt Ninja is a great app to calculate costs splits with relative ease.
Receipt Ninja does a good job of calculating simple splits. Receipt Ninja allows you to enter all your costs, then reports how much each person owes. Receipt Ninja can track who paid what amount and then spits out a report breakdown of costs that’s easy to read.
I liked how Receipt Ninja:
  • is easy to use
  • can use the preset categories and can add your own categories
  • can pull contacts from your address book or add a person not in your address book
  • creates a simple cost break down
  • calculates paying with different currencies
  • can take a picture of receipts (only for records)
  • shares calculation reports via email or SMS.
Receipt Ninja can take a picture of a receipt but it’s only for records. It can’t read the receipt and automatically enter the totals into the report. Automatically entering the costs from the receipt picture would be a great enhancement.
Receipt Ninja will take a little time to learn how to use, but once you get a hang of it, you’ll find Receipt Ninja to be a powerful and useful tool to split costs.
