Expense Sharer - Simple online tool to calculate shared expenses

Expense sharer is an online tool to share expenses with roommates, friends, family members and can be used for any occasions including trips, vacations, room rental etc. What differentiates this tool from other online tools is that - there is NO SIGNUP , NO LOGIN, NO PASSWORDS, NO HASSLE, NO DOWNLOADS, NO SAVING DATA ON SERVERS. The data is purely yours and you can export your data locally or share via Google docs and later import it back and continue on from where you left.

What makes this tool unique is that, it uses an unique algorithm that automatically minimizes the number of money transactions between the parties involved and shuffles the debt automatically thereby reducing the number of checks to write. There is NO limit on the number of people or the number of transactions you add . And you can specify the respective share (in ANY denomination) of each person (1 part, 2 part and even 1.5 part etc).

Below is a link where you can access the tool
