Crashing. I updated my HotSchedules app lastnight and now it wont let me go into the app it keeps crashing and it won’t let me open it..

Love this app, but.... Love this app, but since the update, I'm not getting any notifications. One of the number one reasons I use this app. Please fix ASAP! Update: they said they fixed the issue, still no notifications. App is now taking FOREVER to load. Worked great years ago when I got it, but it’s steadily gone downhill!

Hate the update!!!. Hate the update. I used to be able to request to work either a morning or dinner shift on a day that’s blocked off. Now it won’t give us that option anymore. Really frustrating!!! Please change back!!!!

Sooo Slow. This app is terribly slow and takes FOREVER to load. Tap one wrong button and it starts loading all over again. It also always glitches.

Notification issues.. I missed out on a shift because the app failed to show me that it was released and allow me to pick it up. Because this is an app that I paid for I’d like for it to function properly so that I won’t miss out on work.

Constant glitching and freezing. Horrible app. Lots of glitching and timing out, many bugs. I have uninstalled the app and reinstalled it and it still won’t allow me to release shifts, or change availability (on my phone). All is well on the website, but I paid money for this app so it needs to do better. Excellent concept for an app, the bugs just make it fall short of expectations.

Rate your last shift. I’ve used this app for years and I’ve always told new employees it’s worth the small investment to purchase it. This new feature “rate your last shift” is by far the most annoying feature I’ve seen implemented.

Rating shifts. Loved the old app and thought it was great bc you can contact coworkers directly through the app and check who’s on the schedule. Now I keep getting pestered to rate my shifts! Too annoying now

I hate that we are switching to this!. There’s no place to register. This app is the worst. A lot of the reviews complain about having to pay. Yes, that’s not good. You should charge my employer. Free or not, if I have an email that the app says is invalid, I should be able to register my email.

Edited. I told them I would rewrite my review once they fixed the dark mode. They didn’t, they reverted back to an earlier update. Good job guys.

Hurry! Fix!   1 star

Fix!!. Downloaded the app years ago (free), all the sudden I have to pay for the app to use it? Okay fine, but to pay for it I have to delete it from my phone and re-download the app. I’ve had it on my phone for so long I don’t remember my username and password. Easy fix right? No. I click forgot username, then am prompted to enter my email so I do so and it say processing... then app crashes?? Wanna help with this?? Kinda would be helpful to know when I work. Will re-rate your app with more stars if you fix this.

New update ?. After the update I haven’t been able to open the app at all. I can’t view my schedule. If there’s any way to get around this I’d greatly appreciate it. Never had any problems with the app before now

Black screen on iPhone 11. Not working with my new iPhone 11 with the black screen 😤 I have to put it on white again in order to the app works again

Chris1993xx   1 star

Slow and constantly crashes. Super slow. Slow to open. Slow to read a message. Crashes all the time. 0/5 stars. Literally one of the worst apps I’ve ever used. Also, it bothers you twice after each shift to “rate your shift”, gets real annoying on doubles. Too many unecessary notifications, and no way to turn them off.

Make store location stand out. For ppl who work at multiple locations should be able to see the store location for that day without getting confused. Maybe have it in red or caps or something. My team mates sometimes show up at the wrong store. It would be helpful if you highlight the location

Dark Mode. Everything on the app is good. You just need to fix the dark mode because you can’t see anything.

Dark mode. The app works great for our business, but with the new iOS dark mode, it is nearly impossible to read anything because all words are still in a black font. Please fix this. Besides that, the app works great.

New update. I’ve been using HotSchedules for a couple of years now and everything has worked perfectly fine but then I updated the app and now I can’t see if I am working or not. The names are too dark. Someone please take note of this mistake and rectify it.

Poor Implementation of Dark Mode. Ever since the most recent update to the app, I can honestly say it was terrible. I know there’s a trend towards being able to have platforms in dark mode— which isn’t the issue. The issue is that now that this dark mode has been implemented you can barely see what time you’re working at. For whatever reason the text is also dark just like the background and you can’t see what it says. You have to click on it to see it. Other issues include that you can’t see who else is working in case you may need to find a cover, and you can’t tell what options you’re clicking on in places like the setting or messages, or requests off. Because unlike your shift which will show once you click on it, nothing else does. Please improve this so we can see things clearly and effortlessly.

casta21   1 star

NEEDS TO BE FIXED ASAP. I don’t know who came up with the idea of making it unable to read my schedule for the week but they need to be fired..the only way I can view my schedule is if I press a specific day, I didn’t have to that before. It’s just a black screen when you open the app it’s ridiculous. I paid for the app to work and for me to be able to access my work schedule without any issues. It was perfectly fine before I updated it. FIX IT.

BrightBlueEyes123   2 star

Dark mode issues. With the new update for iPhones there is an option for dark mode. I see that the app adapts to it, but not properly. It turns everything in the app black including the background and the writing and I am unable to read anything. I shouldn’t have to take my phone out of dark mode in order to be able to read anything in the app. Not sure if this needs to be a fix by the apps team or by apples team members, but it is very inconvenient that I have to change my phone mode in order to read anything in this app then change it back afterwards

Jbrown1980   1 star

Not for me. No notifications when someone drops a shift. To pick up a shift/see who’s working you all have to have that designation (lounge, bartender). Frustrating to use, lots of glitches wth times in availability. But user friendly at all.

Requires constant attention. The makers of this app need to understand the fact that most people are forced to use it by their employers. Nobody cares about your “rollouts”, company messages or constant updates. I’ll just use the crappy mobile site for free.

Can’t see when shifts end. Ever since the new update, myself and my coworkers are able to tell when we start our shifts, but not when we finish them. This is frustrating because most of the time I am away from my desktop computer and am unable to check when I am to leave work.

Scheduling. The system works well. However I think it would be better if there was an option to do biweekly or monthly availability instead of only one week at a time.

The app is to be purchase but be careful as you need to register. I find myself stock any place I could register after I purchase the app. I am a little dispointed.

RorysMama2012   3 star

Pretty good but.... I don’t understand availability...updating my availability is super complicated. I liked the old way before the update. Also, when synced to my calendar it always is an hour off...I think it has something to do with daylight savings time. Can’t figure that out either.

Not worth it. Overpriced. This app is simple and as such is extremely overpriced. They are taking advantage of every employee downloading it. I recommend using the full site and not paying for this garbage. I regret purchasing.

Needs an update. This app doesn't do a single thing is says it does. It is extremely frustrating because you are not able to message co workers off the app which is the only reason I bought it off here. It shows the option to send sms, message or call but nothing happens when you click on it. It is extremely frustrating because I have not been able to contact coworkers for this reason. Not worth the money it's useless until it is fixed. Not impressed.

Good until recent update. The app has been useful and easy to use for so long, but the recent update removes the information regarding when shifts end. I now don’t know what my finish time is and I don’t understand why this was an upgrade in anyway. Please fix it soon.

Gamewizard0601   2 star

iOS 13 dark mode ruined it. Until they fix it, if you have dark mode turned on in your iPhone settings you’ll either have to use the web app or deal with squinting. The app worked okay but following iOS 13 it has become borderline unusable in dark mode because they neglected to change text color to reflect a dark background so it has become a dark grey on slightly darker grey and I can’t imagine trying to read this. For a paid app, extremely disappointing to have to deal with an oversight like this, preventing me from using a feature on all of my apps, especially on something I use for work.

Dark mode is a problem.. I have iOS set to dark mode and it seems like in the last update HotSchedules decided to hop on the train. The trouble is they didn’t change the font color so it’s black on dark gray making it nearly impossible to read. I can’t find a setting to shut off dark mode within the app.

Great app until. This is an amazing app and I absolutely love using it, I find it super easy and don’t mind the cost of the app because i’ve used it for multiple jobs. but honestly since apple has released the “dark mode” feature for iphone, it makes it ridiculously hard to use this app. Most apps have adjusted quite well to this new change and other doesn’t impact it at all. but whenever I use this app, the screen is black & the font is black. I can’t even type a message or see when I’m scheduled. although I know this is an easy fix if I go back to “light mode” but would be awesome if there’s a way you could make this available for both “light” and “dark” users.

it does the job i guess. Honestly paying for this app you’d think it wouldn’t be so slow. New iPhone update with the dark setting does make the website dark, so you can’t see the letters or anything.

Needs an update. Now that Apple had a new update with the “dark mode”, the dark mode makes the app dark too, which isn’t an issue except the app still uses black text instead of white. I can’t see anything it’s trying to show. Needs an update to work with dark mode.

New update?. So I recently updated my iOS on iPhone and have it set to night mode so all my usually white screens are black. Well Hot Schedules wasn’t up to date and it was still a white screen which was fine I didn’t care but idk if they updated or something now all I’m seeing is black. It’s like they went to night mode but so did the words and stuff...if I want to see my schedule I have to click it and it will turn’s just very irritating bc I can’t read black words on a black screen 🤷🏻‍♀️ otherwise I love the app it’s very handy

Can’t see with new iPhone update. I like the new dark feature that came with my iPhone update, but the downside is I can’t see my schedule on the app without turning up the brightness of my screen and looking closely or clicking on it. It’s really inconvenient and I know the first thought would be “well don’t use dark mode” but that’s just dumb. Please fix it as I did buy the app for the convenience of looking at my work schedule. P.s. - why does it take so long to load every time I switch apps?

MaryRMuse   3 star

Please make improvements. There definitely needs to be some improvements for this app. Whenever my schedule gets posted or updates the app won’t open, or it says no network connection and my information won’t display. For the last 3 days I haven’t been able to get my schedule to open. It’s really frustrating as I had to pay for this app and it’s the way I communicate with my coworkers and how I see my work times.

Good until dark mode. Dark mode messed this app up. Can’t see shift times unless I click on them individually. Text is almost the same grey color as the background. Gf has the same problem so I know it’s not just me

Terrible mightmode?. The newest update made it look like a terrible attempt at nightmode because you can’t see anything with the text still being black. Going to uninstall this app if isn’t fixed soon.
