Introducing Bill Attachments

Hi billsup users,

We've just introduced a new feautre called "Bill attachments". Using our web interface, you can now attach files and pictures to your bills. This would be useful for receipts, bills, and anything for reference when you add your bills and debts with your friends.

Under attachments, choose your picture or file to start the upload, then save your bill - that's it! Now you're sharing files with your friends!

Hope this helps with your shared billing!

PS This feature is currently only available through our website.

Android app updated with copy and delete features

Hi Billsup users,

just wanted to let you know that our Android app has been updated. We've fixed a few bugs and added some simple features to help with your billing needs.

In this new version, we have made the delete functionality available to all users. Before, the delete function is only accessible via the options menu, which wasn't made available to Android 3.0+ within our app. Now, the delete function is available for everyone in the action bar.

As well, you will notice the new copy feature, which will make creating those frequently-added bills easier to enter. Once the icon is clicked, all details are copied, and the date is automatically set to today for your convenience.

Update or Download our new Android app now!

Note: As before, only simple and editable bills can be edited, deleted, or copied. The bills that are more complicated, such as those involving one or more items, will not be editable in the Android app yet.

Happy billing!

Debt balance graph

Hi all,

in case you didn't notice, we added a "debt balance" graph within the friend's details page to let you visualize your balance with your friends. This is one of the requested features by many of you :-) A positive balance means your friend owes you money, whereas a negative balance means you owe your friend money.

update on iOS app

We know that the iOS app has not been behaving well on certain devices. We're trying to get this working better and resolved - thanks for your patience! If you're experiencing trouble, feel free to contact us regarding your issue. Meanwhile, if the app isn't working, please navigate to our mobile site for your bill sharing needs!

Site back to normal

Hey all,

Recently our website got compromised and we want to tell you the extent and the impact of the event.

Cause: one of the persons in our team was logging into our server's ftp using normal ftp, so his requests was prone to a sniffing attack. We have educated this person, and he is using encryption with his ftp sessions from now on.

Impact: the damage was minimal as they were only able to access the front-end of the site (i.e. the webpages), not your data. Hence, no data was lost or damaged. (As well, your data is encrypted and stored daily with backups even if the database is compromised)

We apologize about the incident, and we will continue to take every measure to make your experience smooth.
