Meet the best Apps to share expenses with your friends

These are the mobile applications to share expenses that you should know before embarking on a group trip with friends:

Splitwise

The best way to keep track of accounts and make sure everyone pays their share is to use ‘Splitwise’, a very simple application that balances accounts and reminds you if you owe something to someone.

It is designed to share expenses in different situations, whether on a trip with friends, with your roommates or dinner at a restaurant. You just have to create a group in the app and enter the expenses and people who must pay for it, and the application will be tracking the total calculation, even send a “friendly email” to those who still have money.

In addition, it allows payment via Paypal, which facilitates everything even more. You can download the application for both iOS and Android.

Bizum

When it comes to paying a group account, what works best is Bizum, an app to send and receive money with your mobile, instantly. A new way to pay expenses safely, easily and quickly, forget about making bank transfers and wait several days to receive the money.

Many banks include it in their mobile application, such as Santander or BBVA, but others have created a separate app that works in the same way, such as Unicaja with ‘UniPay’, the download of the application is free and its service has no associated expenses or commissions.

It’s as easy as creating an account, entering your friend’s phone number or simply choosing it from your mobile’s contact list, entering the amount you want to send, and Bizum is responsible for everything else.

Soon, the application plans to launch two new services, such as ‘online shopping’ and ‘payment in shops’, which will work in the same way, transferring the money from one account to another.

 

Twyp

Twyp works in a very similar way to Bizum, but it is more complete. It is an application to send and receive money from your friends, pay at stores, take money at certain supermarkets, among others. It is an international initiative of ING Bank to make life easier for people. It is available in Spain and very soon we can use it in other European countries.

To start using Twyp you just have to download the app and register, you only need a bank card, your mobile, a phone number and an Internet connection to pay your friends, et voilà!

Taking money out of a supermarket is now a reality. Through the application ‘Twyp Cash’ you can have cash at the same time you pay with the mobile when making the purchase in a supermarket or filling the car deposit. It can be used in the stores of the DIA group and the Galp and Shell service stations.
