The app includes a “Whiteboard” for group communication and notifies you when you need to pay someone back. It syncs across all devices so you can input purchase information on either your phone, tablet or computer.

Splitwise is free and availiable on iOS, Android and Windows Phone. You can download the app from the Google Play Store or the iTunes App Store and you can visit the Splitwise website to manage your account from your computer. Windows Phone users need to download third party apps from here.
