Shift Worker is 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.

Ratings and Reviews
Love it! Easy to use! Some suggestions though…
I love this app, and have used it for years as a nurse with a constantly changing roster. It’s easy to use, and the colours and symbols are great. Just two small suggestions to make it even better:
1) If the notes section could be bigger in calendar view so I could see all that I had written without pressing to “edit” the note to see what else I had written.
2) If you could add two different rosters to the same calendar, or be able to post two different symbols on the same day. My partner is FIFO and it would be helpful if I could put both of our rosters on to the same calendar so I could see both of our lives in a snapshot.
Would be perfect with one improvement
I love this app. It makes adding and removing shifts so easy so that I can organize my life month to month. Because I rotate myself around the shifts within, I feel the need to add personal and social activities alongside shifts so everything is accessible on the same page. Unfortunately the coloured tabs just aren’t enough to manage this; they make multiple activities messy to read and adding events is a multi step process. If this extra activity option could be improved, this app would be perfect.
I really like this app but it is missing a crucial option for many a shift worker I'm sure. It needs to include the ability to add split shifts/two shifts on any given day or date; I would have thought this was blatantly obvious. That said, it works well, is easy to use and set up, looks good and is quite useful; if the developers were to add the option as per my feedback I would be singing it's praises and promoting this app to all and sundry. One last thing; to give feedback or to get support via the app it is via Facebook or Twitter; I will never be a part of either, both options woefully inadequate, hopefully they follow user reviews and take my suggestion under serious consideration, if so this app would be brilliant!
