If you're living or traveling in South Africa, this app is a must. I operate a remote business that requires wifi and meetings overseas, so it's critical to plan for load shedding. This app makes that easy. The user interface is intuitive, and it's easy to find the information you need. You can follow multiple areas at once to coordinate around load shedding, which is really nice. This app makes checking load shedding like checking the weather.

i really wish we didn't need this app. it does a good job pushing load shedding status change notifications, and is very intuitive to use. the main drawback is that the app is very slow to load info after a notification has been sent...i guess everyone is trying to access the schedule info at the same time and clogging up the server. :/
