    "I go out with co-workers and friends often. Sometime we share the bill amount between each other. I have trouble calculating everything between us to see who should pay what. I find the app very useful in these situations. I would have a lot harder time without it. "

    "So, I'm always traveling for a fun girl's weekend and this app is a must have for us! It is so easy to figure out how to split the hotel stay between all of us! Add up the gas and divide it by however many are going on the trip. One of the best functions is being able to use it offline! A remote trip to the jungle? Your friend can't get out of paying their portion of the trip claiming that they can't get good signal! "

    "When going out we always need to split the bill. Venmo works fine to transfer funds, but what happens when you need to figure out how much people owe? With Cash App, you can easily figure out and send money all in one app. A must have for people who go out in groups."

    "I understand that this is another way to pay among friends, but it's annoying that it can take several days to transfer. And this needs to be updated; the atm card was discontinued over a year ago."
