Splitwise Easter Egg - Lots of Bunnies!

I recently came across this gem of an Easter Egg hidden in plain sight. Seems like the developers of Splitwise adore cute bunny pics.  


Open the App Menu and click "Bunnies!"

Press "Bunnies!" multiple times and have a cheerful day!

Splitwise also has a hidden URL dedicated to Bunnies -
Don't forget to refresh the link multiple times :)  

A product version code-name was inspired by rabbits (v3 was code-named "Fat Rabbit").

Update 29-05-2017 02:30 AM IST:

An earlier beta release was code named "Adorable Kittens".
