This new app is not worth the effort. The old one was good, this one is a disaster. It's not even worth one star. Instead of improving the app, the loadshedding part has become even more useless. After one year of promising to improve, the loadshedding part of the app is still highly inaccurate and virtually unusable. πŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘Ž Still, the loadshedding section has not improved. Lives could be lost. I am removing the given star. πŸ‘Ž

Good day Gunter, Thank you very much for your review and feedback. We are currently working on adding the upcoming loadshedding periods.

Loadshedding information is often out of date, so it's useless for predicting when the power will be off. Regularly see no upcoming loadshedding only for the power to be off 10 mins later. Power is currently off, app says everything is fine. How is the other popular loadshedding app more accurate than the one by the city that provides the electricity?

Works well for me. Definitely some good improvements since previous app, where one couldn't minise the app to look at other info without the info being logged being lost - it doesn't do that anymore.
