Splitwise has introduced restrictions on the number of free expenses users can add

When it comes to dividing expenses among friends during parties, trips, or shared living arrangements, many turn to the Splitwise app. Recognized for its feature-rich platform and user-friendly interface, Splitwise has become the go-to solution for managing shared expenses. However, recent changes have introduced limitations on the number of expenses users can add for free, along with a 10-second cooldown before adding a new expense.

The latest update places restrictions on the number of free expenses users can input each day, prompting frustration among long-time Splitwise users. While some users reported a limit of three expenses, others experienced a maximum of four expenses per entry. Additionally, a 10-second cooldown period was observed on both Android and iOS platforms, as confirmed by Splitwise on its official website.

These new features are part of a strategy to encourage users to subscribe to Splitwise Pro, a premium version offering unlimited expenses, currency conversion, receipt scanning, and more. Splitwise Pro is available through a monthly subscription of Rs 149 or an annual payment of Rs 999 in India. In the United States, the subscription costs $5 per month or $40 annually.
