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.

I'm usually not one to write a review about stuff, unless I really find it beneficial. But, this program definitely makes the grade. I just switched from a position of straight 8's back to a rotating shift of 12's. So, this was a life saver because the last time I worked rotating shifts I had to write my schedule out by hand. Which meant I had to double and triple check it so as not to screw up. My friends affectionately referred to schedule as the bingo board, since my days off rotated. This is so much easier and accurate. All you have to do is input the days on and off and the hours worked. Then plug in the shifts between dates and it sets it up like presto! No hassle no fuss, as long as you know the start of your shift rotation, which in my case rotates every 28 days. Keep up the great work!
My husband has a job, 12 hr shifts, where for 4 days he works nights, 4 days off then he works 4 day shifts, another 4 days off and back to nights and that's how his schedule always is. Before this app I'd try to write it on the calendar so that I would be able to just glance and see if he was off in order to plan vacations, kids bday parties, etc...but inevitably, I'd screw it up. But this app is great!! We can look at any day we want and know if he's working. No more of me screwing up the calendar in March and us making plans then a few months later realizing I was wrong!!! Great app!
Love this app, with 1 exception
This app is great! Super easy to keep track of all of my shifts and fun to share via email if need be.
2 improvements I would make, make this app communicate with my app on my iPad. I have current version of my schedule on my phone but it won't automatically update to my iPad. :(
Second improvement that I would make would be to have multiple colored notes and multiple colored shifts on one day. I am huge in to color coding my life. Other than that I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who works multiple shifts at different places.
