Ratings and Reviews
Aesthetically pleasing, functionally flawed
The app is simple to use and the design is aesthetically pleasing, making it easy to see your shifts. However, there are a couple things that need fixed. Most notably broken is the widget; it simply displays, “We couldn’t find your shifts. Are you logged in the Sling app?”. This function worked previously on my iPhone 6 running iOS 9.3.3, but has never worked on my iPhone XS running iOS 12.0.1. This was the main way I checked my shifts, and it made it so much easier. I don’t know if the app version was different, or if there is just an unknown compatibility issue where the widget feature only works on some versions of iOS. Lastly, as mentioned by another reviewer, the notifications are inconsistent at best, and completely missing or useless at worst. Most of the time I forget I have it set to remind me of my upcoming shift, because it either doesn’t push a notification, or it notifies me when my shift is starting in under 5 minutes. While this has never caused me to be late to work (as it isn’t my primary method of time management and ultimately one should be responsible for themself in regards to getting to work), it would be nice to have peace of mind knowing you have a reliable backup alert. Overall, I enjoy using the Sling app to view and manage my shifts, and I hope to see improvements soon.

Thank you for your feedback!
We are aware of the issue with the widget and we will try to fix it as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience caused. We will also check what's going on with shifts alarms 👍
Good app. few things that could make it great
As an employee, this app is a great idea. You can have your schedule accessible on your phone. You can easily provide your availability, ask for time off and give and take shifts. My main complaint it that you can’t see who you are working a shift with ( there is a tiny thumbnail photo that you can’t distinguish/ enlarge. Also sometimes you can dismiss notifications if for example you are a server and you don’t want a host shift. But sometimes you can’t and there are often 10-15 available. It makes it hard to see what you might be interested in. That’s all I can think of! Oh maybe as a bonus making this able to sync with calendars ( iPhone etc)...
An abundance of notifications 😂
This app is wonderful for the most part. I love how frequently they update it to fix bugs, and how available they are to answer questions. The only thing that get really irritating is some of their updates make the app notify you up to 4 times that your shift is about to start. Sometimes they aren’t even helpful notifications, like a 1 minute warning?! Seriously?!? Can we make it an option to toggle those notifications to 1 hr or 30 min or both? After 30 minutes, nobody cares anymore! Lol 😂 I can’t get to work with a 1 minute warning, and I’m pretty sure I was aware of my shift starting from the other 3 notifications!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
