Excellent - 5 Star
Best app I’ve used. Extremely easy to add rota and use. Would, and have, recommended to anyone that needs a rota app.

The best app I’ve got! 5 Star
Of the dozens of apps I’ve got this is the best. Use it constantly and was easy to set up. I’ve moved on to a different rota but can still see my old one which is really useful. Always get a reply when I send a query and comments are taken on board.

Great App - 5 Star
Very clear - big and bold - in constant use.

Best app out for rota - 5 Star
As I work in the oil rigs 2 weeks on 2 weeks off this app was perfect for working out my rota in seconds! And worth every penny!

Perfect - 5 Star
This is the only shift predictor in the app store that I can actually use to plan my very random shift pattern. First class,

Don’t leave home without it!

This app is excellent! And I don’t leave home without it..... considering it’s on my phone. Constantly on it throughout the day, due to my different shifts, each day and week. The colour coding is synced with my Employers systems so it’s easily identifiable when I’m working on the computer too!
I love the fact that all my diary appointments from my iPhone to Google Appointments can be flagged on my schedule.
Just the thing to sort out my day! Just need an audible notification now👌🏿👌🏿👍🏿👍🏿

Easy to set up and use

I was using iPlanner for years before it decided to have a wobble and stop working recently. Since then I have downloaded and tried all of the free shift planners with little success. They all worked ok but felt ‘clunky’ and did not integrate with iOS calendar. I decided to bit the bullet and pay for one and this one had good reviews throughout.
It is easy to use, easy to set up and allows you up to 5 separate shift patterns so good if you have a partner that does shifts and friends on different patterns. I had a small issue with setting up my particular pattern and emailed the developer. Jamie replied very quickly and explained how to sort my issue. I now have my shifts set up until 2028 after about 10 minutes effort in total and that includes adding some odd shifts that cannot be included within a set parameter.
I was quickly able to send these to my partner once she had added the app to her phone and airdropped straight across.
Only thing that could make this better is the ability for this app to copy into the main iOS calendar. It does it the other way (I.e anything you add to your iOS calendar copies in to the shift calendar) but it would be hugely convenient to have this the other way round so it can be shared with others. Very minor boggle and one which I am assured is on the ‘to-do’ list of the developer. Once this is done it will be a 5 star app.
All in all a very simple app to set up and adjust and well worth the £1.99 price.

Easy to set up and use but....

I use this for UK Fire Service Rota and it works well. It's easy to work out how to programme it to display the different Watches and I had it up and running in minutes.
My only gripe is that there is no way of differentiating one month from another at a glance. There is a continuous scroll of colours and you have to take a moment to work out exactly where you want to be on the screen. I feel if there was an obvious way of seeing where one month ends and the next begins it would be easier to pinpoint a date straight away.
