Shift Sharer allows you to save your shifts to the cloud, then add friends/colleagues and see their shifts on your calendar automatically. When a friend adds a new shift, it appears instantly on your calendar.
Start by creating your various shift types within the app (you can give each an icon and colour that's displayed on the calendar), then simply assign a shift to a day with a single tap.
Once you've entered your own shifts, you can find friends and colleagues via Facebook or by searching for them and once they've accepted your friend requests, you'll be able to see all of their shifts on your calendar (and they'll be able to see yours).
You can choose to hide/show friends on the calendar and can also creates groups of different friends.
You're even able to ask the app, "when are a set of friends all off?" The app will then list the days when these friends aren't working, allowing you to plan events and holidays.
Shift Sharer stores all of its data in the cloud, meaning you'll not lose your data if your phone is damaged or lost. Getting a new phone? Just download the app and sign in to you existing account - your data will be synced automatically.

A good base that needs to grow
I downloaded this app as a shared calendar for my partner and I as I work shifts. A lot of the other apps are either stupidly complex or if not too simple and don't allow me to input a shift pattern.
The pros of this app are that it is very easy to use, I also like that it is colour/symbol coded so that you can see at a glance what the shift is.
There are improvements that could be made to make this app worth the spend and set it aside. It would be good to be able to opt out of a time slot or just have an 'event all day option' to cover days off or leave.
The other major improvement would be if you could put a note on a day and add more than one event. This would assist if you were doing a split shift or if you wanted to add social events.
I think this has the bones of a good app that shift workers would pay for, it's just a bit too simple at the moment. Going to keep using though in the hope that as it grows, things will be added.
This app does exactly what it says shares your shifts with others. Must download for any couple or group of people who want to stay connected and organise events while living a busy life. It can only get better in future versions.
Great app for any busy shift workers looking to share your rota with friends/colleagues and identify any days off that you might have in common. Download it now!
