Shifty is a scheduling app for small businesses and individuals.

:: ABOUT ::

The basis of Shifty is to enter all the data which rarely ever changes, such as shift patterns, staff and duties. After that's in the system making schedules is just dragging and dropping combinations of those items.

Shifty was originally designed to be used by restaurants, pubs and shops. However it turned out to be useful to a much wider audience. For example: families, security companies, tour guides, charities, schools, churches, doctors and even gardeners!

:: THEY SAY ::

"Overall, this is a fantastic application that will really make running any business a whole lot easier." (

"This app can perform tasks pertaining to scheduling in business like a breeze. All you need to do is download this app, configure it for your particular business specific information and get started with its lucid drag and drop interface." (

"I run a small petsitting business and this makes scheduling a breeze. There's a little learning curve but once you get it... works great! Thanks" (Aunt Edith, US AppStore)

"This app is by far the best app I have purchased for my iPad. It's really easy to use and better yet it's easy for everyone to read once the data is put in. I would recommend this app to anyone that has to make schedules for employees or even for someone who works a few jobs or does shift work. It's so visual the whole family will be able to figure out where you are. This app is the best money I have spent for my iPad." (Chezcloe, Canadian AppStore)

"Great app that is easy to use. Feedback is quick and considers opinion. Looks good and works well for multiple staff." (Come on 2, Australian AppStore)

What's new in version 2.1
This app has been updated by Apple to use the latest Apple signing certificate.

• 64-Bit Support
• Bug Fixes

Wage Adjustments
This allows wage adjustments based on duties. They can be used to calculate: salaried staff, tiered rates, bonuses, wage multipliers and more. For example, Mike normally gets paid $20 but when standing in for 'Manager' gets paid $25 (i.e. standard wage is replaced). Or Tom, he gets a $42 fixed bonus for being 'On Call' regardless of the length of shift (i.e. bonus applied per shift not per hour). Or Kate, she gets paid 1.5× when working the 'Overtime' duty (i.e. hourly wage multiplied). These new options should reduce the likelihood to reach for a calculator when you need to know cost.

Languages Added
Good news if English isn't your preferred language, or you need to share schedules with native speakers.
