Accurate for loadshedding. Ads are NOISY and intrusive. When you open a tweet notification and then click back it closes the app (and plays a noisy ad) instead of showing you the loadshedding times page. Even if I paid for it, I would still want to go from a notification to the tweets to the schedule, not out of the app once I press back from the tweets. I don't buy apps where coders deliberately try to annoy me with noisy ads. Entice me don't annoy me. ***UPDATE*** The ads are silent now! 🙏🏼

The noisy ads are an issue on Google's side. We have removed them earlier today as we have not yet received feedback from Google on this issue. There was no deliberate intention on our side to annoy users. Thank you for pointing out the issue relating to opening the app from a Tweet notification. We will look into that as well.

Recently, it doesn't show me any notifications, so I can't prepare for random loadshedding. In addition, when I open the app, it shows there's stage 4 loadshedding at the top, but only highlights the stage 2 time periods, so if I don't double check at which stage we are currently at, I don't have the correct loadshedding times for the day. I downloaded a different app, which shows me my notifications and the correct loadshedding times for the relevant stage. I can delete this app now.

Can you please upgrade to the beta version of the app, which has better support for notifications on Android 12. You can join the beta program from the app's page in the Play Store.

The last few months it just doesn't send the notifications, I've looked at everything in the app and notification settings to try and troubleshoot it but everything is set correctly including excluding it from battery optimisation. The devs need to look into it because I'm not the only one. I've had to move over to the Eskomsepush app till this is fixed.

The notifications don't work for some devices on Android 12. Please send us your email and we'll add you to the beta program, which has a new version that seems to work for all Android 12 users.
