Don't pay for this  27849020373  1 star

Just use After one software update your app can't handle my phone anymore. This is junk and wouldn't even be worth one dollar. It's not like knowing my work schedule is important or anything right?


Can't log in.  jzsmith9799  1 star

Can't use this app anymore=not gonna pay $3 for it. Absolute garbage, no reason to even force me to update every time by blocking older versions immediately anyway.


Definitely more convenient that the site  KamAutMah  3 star

This is worth the $3 because it's much simpler than the site and I don't have to login every time, but it's annoying that you can't have multiple jobs on the same account. So now having two jobs that use HS, I constantly have to log out and in to the other to check each schedule.

Very useful app!  Sergio G Hdz  5 star

This is a great app, haven't really had any problems with it. Easy to use and easy to understand. You can very much view your schedule at one click of a button.

My New Favorite

Awful update  My New Favorite  1 star

I can't log in to get my schedule!! After update my user name and password are not accepted. Please advise!


Use the website  LanceS  1 star

This app is a huge waste of money. Basically all you can do is check your schedule and message, which you can do from safari on your phone and that works much better. Don't even bother with this, what a waste of money.

Worth the money.  Mjbmaster  5 star

This app is great. It's easy to use, smooth, and has a clean interface. Worth the money, it's much easier to use than the web version. Has most of the features the web version has too.


Great App!  Road_To_Success  5 star

I love everything about this app! It makes everything easy and is very convenient.


Always logs me out  Morrison1300  1 star

You guys need to work on this app that some of us payed for... it ridiculous how it logs me out ALLLL THE TIME!!!


Can't even log in  Jellykdjsjsdns  1 star

I have tried multiple times to log in and I am 100% sure I have the correct email address and password because I log in to my HotSchedules account on the computer every day to check my schedule and no matter what I do or how many times I change my password or check to see if it is correct it will not let me log in. I am extremely frustrated because I paid money for this app and it's extremely inconvenient to have to go to safari or on my computer to check my work schedule. I'm fairly irritated by this and I have tried everything. I've installed and uninstalled the app and repeated this at least 6 times to see if that would help my situation and it hasn't helped at all. I'm frustrated and so far it's been a waste of time.


Still won't work...  Apersonthatlikedtheoldapp  1 star

Still says "authentication failure invalid username or password" when both password and user name are correct I can sign on to the website but not this app.


A little disappointed  DWOAC86  3 star

I was hoping since everyone I know uses this app for work. You would be able to see how many hours you are scheduled, how many hours you actually worked, and your clock in/out times. But since it doesn't it was kinda a let down.


Fix please??  Lourahhhhh  1 star
