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 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.

Firstly, this app should not be solely relied upon for keeping important 'diaries'. The app is really good for shift workers, especially those in a couple as you can have both shift calendars to hand (subject to both persons downloading the app and creating their shift patterns). The app developer is very good at giving advice and is understanding on the bugs. He is willing to listen to suggestions and generally offers guidance to those in need. Since downloading this app a few years back there have been many updates which are fairly regular to keep the app stable. Unfortunately, yes, on iOS updates, the app will delete it's data, but a backup should be made in paper form (as even the email method within the app does not restore properly after an iOS update). Overall a great app and fit for purpose the majority of the time!
A must have for Couples who are on Shift Work
I could not do without this app and neither it seems would half my department. It makes my ever increasing shifts and rota as a radiographer in the NHS easy to input and change. My boyfriend also has it and found it easy to set up his rolling shift pattern. We can send each other our calendars and check our schedules making it easy to plan things. The only thing that I wish they would do is find a way that I can check my boyfriends shift quickly against mine so I don't have to keep going out of my calendar and into his, but maybe that's just being a tad bit lazy!
A MUST for all shift workers!!
PLEASE PUT BACK THE APP SUPPORT - I used to be able to email a question- that's gone now and I'm stuck with something!!?? 😖😕
I love this app so much if I lost my phone this would be the one app I couldn't live without!!! Takes a bit of setting up but its well worth the effort and once your set up it is done for ever!!! I've had mine for years and work all sorts of shifts constantly being changed about - scribbled out diaries are a thing of the past!!
