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.

I have had no problems with the app. I think it is one of the best apps out there... I would like to find a downloadable version for my laptop as I do not always have cell signal in the area where I work, but my laptop has a secure wifi built in.

Good app but notifications do not respect Quiet Times. Additionally, all notifications trigger when saving updates to Quiet Times. This is annoying when you have entered multiple areas and do not want to receive notifications for some of them.

Hello Stephen. The quiet times are only for area alerts. If you are getting area-specific alerts during configured quiet times for those areas, then please send details to abisoft11@gmail.com so that we can investigate further.
