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.

Ratings and Reviews
Needs Added Feature
First off, love the APP. Been using for years. Only qualm I have is I’m still constantly shuffling between two different calendars. We need a way to somehow export this apps events to Apples calendar or the other way around. If you could add a feature to import our existing calendars events on here or the other way around it would be the ultimate. Love the visual aids and customizable setup cause we work some wildly varying hours, just need to easily combine both calendars. Thanks
Enjoying this app
I have used this app for years, and really enjoy it, I do wish that we could add two shifts on the same date though, for example if I work a normal shift and have training for a different position in the same day. I would even pay for updates like the mentioned. Other then that I love the app and hope it stays around for a long time to come. It is my go to app for work.
Useful, but could be better
My husband is a shift worker, and we use this app to keep track of his schedule. It has been very handy, but it would be SO much better if you could (1) link the app to other calendars like the iPhone calendar, and (2) link the account among family members so the app will automatically update on my phone when my husband updates his schedule on his phone to reflect overtime or a shift swap. Other than that, it’s great!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
