Before you buy another shift calendar app ask yourself:

It’s a good calendar app period!
3. Will you find yourself staring at the app for 15 minutes just figuring out how to use it? FireSync has a sleek modern design that is intuitive to use.

Ratings and Reviews
Updated calendar is hard to read
I strongly preferred the previous setup to the current on. The days were listed in a traditional block style with your events under that. You could see a short title of your event. Now the days are a circle. The info for your day’s events are not listed under the day so you must open the day to view any events. Now there is a timeline bar around the day that indicates how much of your day is already planned. I don’t really care for that. Now there is a dot at the bottom of the day to indicate if there are any events on your schedule. This new calendar requires more user input to view events. In my opinion the older calendar was much more user friendly, quicker to use, and easier to read. How can I revert back to the old calendar?
Used another scheduling app prior that suddenly required payment. This took a little getting used to but it is easy to use and has all the features I need (and some I personally don’t!). I have emailed about an issue I was having and the response was quick and the issue was quickly resolved. I recommend this to any brother/sister on the job.
Bad Cus. Svc. No Kelly Days
I requested feedback as it pertained to font size within the app. I received a swift reply as to how to remedy the issue. I subsequently have sent multiple inquiries to see if there was a way, or if they were planning on adding Kelly Days under the “Benefit” type of time off. It has been weeks, and still no reply, I was hoping to set my 2019 calendar which includes Kelly Days. I have no choice but to shop for another fire calendar app, and cannot in good faith recommend this app to other firefighters and their families, especially those that have Kelly Days.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
