Shift Worker is an iPhone/iPod Touch application designed for people who need a quick and easy way to enter and view their shifts. A traditional calendar is not always ideal for shift workers. Sometimes it's not easy to see your upcoming shift schedule very clearly, especially if your shifts don't fall into the traditional working week. Shift Worker solves this problem and turns the frustrating task of entry into a quick and easy experience. Shift Worker allows you to create your own types of shifts by combining visually-attractive icons with letters/numbers so that they can be easily identified at a glance. By including a range of icons (such as suns and stars for day and night shifts) in a variety of colors, any combination is possible for all types of shifts. Entering shifts can be done quickly by simply selecting a type of shift and tapping on each date it occurs. An entire month of shifts could be entered in seconds, an entire year in a few minutes! In addition, Shift Worker allows you create multiple calendars to see friends and family shifts! You can send your shifts to others so they can also see your shifts at a glance as an image or in their copy of Shift Worker. To make things even simpler, you can even save your shifts to your iPhone/iPod's background so that referring to your upcoming shift schedule is as simple as picking up your iPhone/iPod. Shift Worker also includes the ability to create colored personalized notes for each date. Notes can be used anytime additional information needs to be added to a date. FEATURES: - Create a virtually unlimited amount of shift types - Enter shifts on the calendar months in advance in seconds - Add your rotation and automatically fill the calendar in a few simple steps - Show friends and family shifts using multiple calendars - View the calendar in timeline format to see your shift flow at a glance - Create colored personalized notes for any date on the calendar - Include week of year or week 1/2 alternating pattern on calendar - Jump to any month by using the "Goto" button - Save a month's worth of shifts to your background - Share your shifts to others via email, MMS, Facebook or Twitter - Import other Shift Worker shifts and view them all within the one app - No in-app purchases! - No ads!



  • No after care

    By Red cross runner
    Bought the app but having some issues. Tried emailing and using Facebook but no reply. Looking at comments on the Facebook page plenty of people asking questions but no replies. App works fine but problems when sharing.
  • Pretty outdated

    By AppleFanBoy97
    The app looks so old and it’s buggy as hell. For the same price I can buy that Shifty app, and that has loads more features.
  • Not worth it

  • The best shift worker App

    By KLX12
    I have tried all the shift worker apps and this is by far the best. Easy to use by inputting your shifts across the rotation and it calculates the rest. I can as much in advance as I wish to.
  • No Update for years, what gives?! Abandoned app?

    By AndyNewsome
    **UPDATE** Well, 2017 arrives.. still no iCloud backup. I suppose iPhone X support is highly unlikely. Still no multi calendar on one screen support. ———————————— How many years since I first wrote this review? Still no instant/iCloud sync, still loses shifts whenever you restore a device, still doesn't allow multiple people's shifts on one screen. Just waiting for it to fall apart tonight when iOS 10 drops. -------------------/ A year after this review, STILL no updates, no iPhone 5 support, nothing on the list below. Facebook is full of hundreds of people asking for updates as is the review section here. Lots are even saying they'd be willing to buy again as a new app if it contained the things we all want. Come on, this is pathetic customer service. What gives?! 3 years without a decent update?! The app doesn't even fit my phone screen anymore. I'll be looking for a new app soon, this is getting tiresome. ------- This app is good, but doesn't appear to be supported by the developer anymore. It would be 5 stars if an update came offering the ability for my other half and I to sync our calendars as we both use shift worker and have to email or message pictures of our shifts monthly. Not good! By now surely this app should be instantly syncing between linked devices/accounts so that friends and families can see each others shifts on one page as they change in real time instead of having to flip between the app and several different pictures in the photos app!! I'm fed up of having to continually email pics of my month each time a shift changes or hunt around in the photos app for everyone else's shifts!!! Poor effort by the developer for not updating for such a long time when people are paying good money for this app!!
  • Great App - Wish i could use on Apple Watch

    By stef232
    I’ve been using this App for years now and it still works perfect for me. It saves me whipping out my diary and checking what my shifts will be on any particular day. My shift pattern has changed a few times over the years but I’ve always been able to tweak the settings in the App and continue using it. I wish they’d make it possible to view my shift pattern on my Apple Watch.
