Major dapShare.Com update is in the works

by Rob d'Apice
dapShare is 5 years old this year, and still going strong. With competitors billshare shutting down, and sharemate never actually launching, dapShare is still your best option for sharing bills and expenses in your sharehouses, roadtrips, holidays, bunga bunga parties, etc.

But it's going to get better. Here's what we're working on:
  • Rebuild from scratch. Scrapping all current code, and reprogramming in Ruby on Rails. No more 12 decimal debts.
  • Multiple groups. Belong to multiple groups with one account. Have one group for your sharehouse, start another for a group holiday.
  • Dashboard report. See all the important information you need when you login, with quick links for things you want to do.
  • Better notifications. More information in your email notifications that is relevant to you. Debt reminders when debts exceed a pre-set $ value.
  • Easier sharing. Select who needs to share an item and dapshare can split it evenly.
  • Beautification. We're going to make the site much hotter. Seriously this time though.

On top of this, we have a few ideas that are still a twinkle in the eye: an iPhone app, Paypal integration, and facebook integration.

If you have any suggestions for new features or improvements, PLEASE let me know now by clicking on the 'Feedback' button on dapshare or emailing us.
