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 to send your shifts via email so that others can also see your shifts at a glance. 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.

Great app, I work a 23 week rota with different start times. After 10 mins inputting the different shifts and compiling the rota, I have my shifts from now until the end of time logged.
From the look of the bad reviews, I think some people are expecting this app to come pre populated with your rota, which is, of course, impossible. When you download it, take the time to familiarise yourself with the shift manager and shift rotations features. Set up the shift manager bit first then do the shift rotations. Yes this will take a bit of time but once done it'll automatically populate everything for you, an if you need to make one off adjustments for training, holidays, shift swaps etc then that's easily done. Just don't dismiss this app because it takes a few minutes to personalise!
It has one MASSIVE drawback, and that is that the only 'bulk actions' you can do are deleting ALL shifts, notes or both which I've found a problem when I changed teams and needed to populate with my new rota. I either had to delete everything, or go through and delete each future shift individually. It needs an option to delete all data between dates or all data before or after a specific date to make it easy to adjust if you change rota's
Only 4 stars because...
This is a great app. I work very random shift patterns and this app makes life so much easier. Takes me a minuet to put in my shift and less time to figure out what I'm doing.
Only 4 stars because there are a few things that could be better. For example the week number. My company doesn't start week 1 at the beginning of the year so would be nice if I could set the app to start the week at a different time.
When I take out days that need changing it would be nice if it didn't keep asking me if I was sure I wanted to delete that day. Even though you have to hit edit and then select the day. Or if I could select what I am working and it just changes it rather than delete then add.
Other than those two points this is a fantastic app and very highly recommend it to anyone who works shifts
I have used this app for a while now and I find it extremely helpful. I am a nurse but I work 8-4:30 mon-fri usually but this app helps me to keep track of when I am working the odd weekend and allows me to put in training days so I can see at a glance what I am doing each month. I even add notes for birthdays and things to remind myself :)
I just wish I had this app when I used to work proper 12hr shifts nights, days and weekends it would have made everything much easier!!
