Custody schedule apps

Does anyone have any apps to recommend for the following:
We need a nice calendar that shows the plan for who has the children on what dates. It needs to ideally be a shareable app on our phones, free or low cost and it would be great if it added everything up so you could be sure custody was 50/50, or deal with things accordingly if it’s not.
Any recommendations?

Haven't found anything specific for that but there are lots of apps designed for shift work that you could easily adapt...

Google Calendar and the standard calendar in iOS work well for us. They don’t add up the days, but they do everything else you asked. Google has the bonus of a scheduled email with the weekly agenda if you want that.

Thanks Springer. I’ve had a look and reckon that will work well. I can cope with the lack of adding up, our custody pattern repeats every two weeks so we’ll just manually tot it up fortnightly or monthly.

Newman - you have a great idea for an app there!

Google Calendar works well to help me and DH keep track of our contact dates with his DC. DH did try to encourage his ex to use it as well, but she refused, so he uses email to agree contact dates, then puts them on Google Calendar for our own use.

A poster on here recommended "2 houses" - it has a calendar and a financial app - but it's not free.

H and I share a google calendar anyway, I think we will set up one for contact dates.

I don't think we are going to "tot up" contact time though, our marriage counsellor advised against it, she said let the DC have some flexibility if they want it.

We share a google calendar. It seems quite rigid to be totting up 50/50 - will there be flexibility in case DC has a family event on the other side, school events etc?
