    In celebration of Worker's Day, STEVE BLUES selects six apps that will help you get the job done.

    On 1 May, South Africa joins more than 80 countries worldwide in celebrating Worker’s Day. The day recognises the contribution of the working class to the societies they live in and is a reminder that everyone, no matter what their job, deserves to benefit from fair labour practices and employment standards. 

    So, in honour of the workers of South Africa, here are a few free apps that should help make every worker’s life a tiny bit easier:

    Shift Worker

    A calendar app specifically designed for those who work with shift-based schedules that don’t fit your typical Monday to Friday, 9-to-5. Shift Worker makes it easy to create multiple shift schedules, update them, change them, extend them and plan your life around your work schedule.
