You go on a snowboarding trip with your mates and everybody pays for different things during the trip. You come home with a pile of receipts and you’re trying to work out how everyone can settle up (and stay friends). What do you do? Get PAYBACK for the iPhone, the ultimate shared expense calculator. Just enter the list of expenses and who they’re shared between and PAYBACK automatically calculates how you can settle your debts. What’s more, PAYBACK’s unique algorithm automatically minimizes the number of transactions needed to settle your debts.

Exctly what I needed

Avi Alkalay

PayBack is absolutely perfect. Me and my friends already know how expenses will be managed in every trip we make.

There is one little improvement I'd like to ask to be added:
Sometimes some folks join the trip later and is not convenient to add them and see all expenses rebalanced equally automatically, specially when you edit the past expense details per person – these manual edits will be lost when a new person is added. So for these laggards it would be nice to have an option to not consider them in previous expenses. In other words, an option to start sharing only new expenses with that new person.

good idea... poor execution


User interface is awful, way to many taps to get hardly anything back from the device.

This review is for the developer... you have a good idea, but the interactions you put the user through are painful.
Never leave the user with a blank screen... the first screen should be a new trip! (shouldn't have to hit edit or add)
I like that your using the address book... (again shouldn't have to hit edit or add) also seems strange that I would have to add myself to get paid also. Your title shouldn't be new trip (it should be greyed out like with description)
( I dont want to delete this everytime I have a new trip)
On to expenses... once again the screen is blank I have to hit edit... Im not editing anything, Im adding something, but how? (you have to hit edit) and then I have to click add? Yikes this is a horrible experience.
Description... OK you enter food, enter an amount...friend paying for expense its me! how do I get my name into this? I cant choose me!
I like the checkmark who is sharing the expense.
Once your done... there is no overview of all this you have to dig into each trip to find out who what where and how.

I suggest that you think this one through again. its a good idea but poor execution.

Then here is the big one... Once the user has entered in all this information this application doesnt help anyone get paid, doesn't help anyone get notified, or tell the user to contact anyone or call or email anyone... You need follow through!

Great concept, good implementation but.....


This app is great for all the hassle it removes from having to coordinate expenses when out with a group of friends. It is simple and easy to keep track of expenses. It has 2 features that are really missing for it to be a 4 or 5 star app though.

This portion of the review is for Andrew

Andrew, the 2 features I believe would be simple to implement. The first one is to show expenses by date when looking at the trip expenses. You already collect the date the expense happened, showing it and subtotaling the expenses by date would be a very useful feature. Secondly, you really need to implement a free text Note feature. It would be very useful to have a place to put for example what restaurant we had lunch at or what city the gas was filled up in. Showing the Notes after each expense would be really handy.

Lastly, a Trip Report would be very handy. A quick preview of all totals for the trip and per head expense prior to going into the Payback piece would come in handy.

I really appreciate the effort here. I coordinate a lot of camping trips and Golf trips and this is exactly what I was looking for. A couple of these features would make this an awesome application.
