A true pleasure to use, very accurate and reliable. If only they could figure out how the power cuts and cable thefts could be added to the interface and (yes I'm pushing my luck) a resporting system to the municipality so that we can do reporting of faults, theft etc in app. That would make it the most extraordinary app around. But it still is an amazing app and a must have to the modern South African to have

This app allows for planning to be made prior to having no electricity, without it, it would feel like a guessing game & my 1 year old won't have his bottles warm or my laptop charged up enough to watch cartoons or fall asleep to music. I use it all day, every day & enjoy the community feature where people can post questions or info. Thank you for creating such an extremely useful app. Love it too much!

Stages 5, 6, 7 and 8 are not shown for my area and this makes me mix times. The times are also wrong tonight. Loadshedding should've been at 00h00 (according to stage 2 on the app) but it's at 2h00. Otherwise this app is perfect. I rather experience a few mix ups then not know anything about load shedding at all. Keep up the good work

What's new

There has been a lot going on! Jeff is extremely overworked and stressed. His hope is that this round of loadshedding will soon be over! 💪
