Excellent App, just one question,has it been updated to the new October time schedule from Ethekwini? Keep up the great work
Handy app to have in this day and age
by LAfernandes01# on 2020/08/21 05:36
Nice to have a heads up about loadshedding and come on the name is awesome!
Response time
by zardozky55 on 2020/08/14 15:10
Great app in general, BUT....whenever there is a load shedding announcement (which is when you really need to get info) the response is, well, several minutes. Obviously there is insufficient bandwidth to accommodate the volume of users.
New version
by psynomad on 2020/08/13 14:35
This new version seems very sluggish
Wheel of death
by #abdy on 2020/08/13 06:14
Now with adds chowing bandwidth and wheel of death ‘we have a problem’ try again later... not 100% reliable. Seems to be getting more like eskom itself.
Very useful
by Jonnybn on 2020/07/19 04:46
Works so well in planning your schedule 3 days in advance but could you possibly add more days, maybe up to a week of schedule??? Thank you
Loved until today...
by D1nx on 2020/07/15 15:48
Had to drop it to 3* from 4 1/2*. Because really who can get 5* right off the bat :). Absolutely hate the new design - really liked seeing a few days at a time. This is big and bulky, spread out and not aesthetically pleasing IMHO. Also, what happened to the forecast button? Even if it couldn’t always be accurate. No one knows with Eskom as we all know. Our problems though come after loadshedding - because of poorly maintained infrastructure our electrics blow 5 to 10 mins after power comes on. This past weekend we had no power from 3 pm on Sat to 2 pm on Sunday. Any magical way you can help Lynnwood Pretorians with getting that word to the ‘powers’ that be? Now that would be something!!! 🙏🏻😂
Difficulties
by Veeberg on 2020/07/15 07:15
Can’t see the whole grid for all 3 stages anymore. It’s cut off across the phone. When turned sideways you only get 1 day. Please fix. Thanks
Mr
by Daviddog59 on 2020/07/14 14:16
This app is the only thing that works 100% regarding any thing to do with Eskom. Many Thanks to the developers of this brilliant app !!!!
One bad feature of new design. The rest looks good
by PBSE on 2020/07/13 08:41
Not being able to see ALL the load shedding stages in one screen. The new app requires you to scroll to see the different LS stages. Would be better if it had a user controllable zoom feature so that users can select according to their preference. Otherwise, it has been very reliable and useful.
App crash
by Igsaanmo on 2020/07/10 19:35
App crashing on ios on start up
Good App
by Marietjiem on 2020/03/14 10:21
Thank you for the informative app. Love the layout and updates but the only bad thing is that the app freeze or stuck when there is for ex. 20000 people on then I have to go out and come in later to check my schedule. Thank you
Easy peasy!
by jivetalkin' on 2020/03/13 09:41
Straight forward and simple. Gets the job done quickly and easily. A necessary tool to have these days. Well done!
Works perfectly
by Superdave126 on 2020/03/11 23:40
Add your area and it works perfectly. Recommended to all in South Africa. Thanks for a great app! My only gripe is that this app is clearly made for android users, the UI ignores all of Apple’s design language for iOS. Icons, menus, no tabs on the bottom...even the animations are direct from android lollipop. It’s not a problem, just a small annoyance.
No schedules
by T321321 on 2020/03/11 13:19
The App does not have load shedding info for our area (says there is no load shedding while the power is off). Sent update to correct this, still shows the same info (no load shedding for the week in our area).
Pretty much the only reliable info on load shedding
by Fleaborg on 2020/03/11 06:24
I rely on this app on a daily basis to plan my day and run my business. The news providers are slow, Eskom is reliably useless, but these dudes keep me updated. The only niggle I have is that, when a change to load shedding is announced, the app can be a bit laggy when loading details for my areas. Maybe some more caching chaps? The whole schedule can’t be more than a couple of MB in JSON (or XML or YAML or whatever data interchange format you use). Just push that bad boy to the clients and then query it locally, no?
Amazing

Saving my sanity
by sistateresa on 2020/02/23 18:20
Load shedding ruins my business and life. This wonderful app keeps me sane. Thank you. The subtle humour combined with correct info is saving my sanity. You guys are so hands on and trendy. Well done
Thanks for a great useful app
by Definition by character on 2020/02/23 14:31
Now I can comment. Your app is simply amazing because it’s so useful. Thanks to the developers.
Incredibly useful
by US2ZA on 2020/02/23 13:55
First time I’ve ever bothered to rate an app, it’s that helpful. Clear and intuitive to use, with very up to date information.

by LUKAVIEIRA135 on 2020/01/12 03:14
User interface is worse, it was better before, and the schedules you say are out of date are not they are correct. And the new ones you say are right are wrong please fix this!!

What a fantastic service
by BestUgly on 2020/01/04 19:07
Thank you for an excellent app. It demystifies eskom and City of Cape Town schedule and give great alerts. Couldn't ask for more
Getting it wrong
by Earthsearch on 2019/12/13 19:18
This app told me I’m not being load shed and won’t be for the rest of the day due to my stage. I’m currently in the dark from 20:00 as per another stage and just saw a notification come up that that says loadshedding has been been suspended while I’m still sitting in the dark. Think Eksdom got their hands on this app
Very useful!
by jlgeib on 2019/12/12 21:51
Super useful app, easy to use and nicely designed. A necessity for surviving load shedding...
Stages 5 to 8 still not available
by Debbie@Uvongo on 2019/12/11 12:50
This app is a life savior but the Stages 5 to 8 of loadshedding is still not showing on IOS. The Android version is showing all the stages. Needs to be updated on the IOS version
Poor
by Tronel on 2019/12/11 07:53
Sorry but the information is incorrect.
Can’t register?
by Legolas941 on 2019/10/19 05:34
Can’t register on the app because their OTP functionality doesn’t seem to work, so the app is basically useless to me 🤷‍♂️

More of this type of SOE apps please
by KZN faulty on 2019/04/03 10:10
You guys have done such an amazing job of providing info on Eskom services, please can you develop an app that gives us a view on the status at Home Affairs offices - the lack of info on the systems being offline are never shared until you are number 500 in the queue and have been waiting for 6 hours!! I have tried 4 times and 2 different offices in KZN and can’t get in the door!! Please help!!!
Excellent

Lifesaver!
by Insta#girl21 on 2019/03/24 18:44
This app is the best thing to come out of a crap situation. Congrats and thank you to the developers for creating the most useful, user-friendly app to help navigate load-shedding in South Africa.
Reliable and updated regularly
by johnwmic on 2019/03/23 20:05
So with shedding stages changing frequently , or at least have been , Jeff manages to keep us updated quickly too . Find the app very reliable and the updates are pretty quick , able to see how the shedding affects us , so I’m able to plan my day and possibly the next day , so much better . There’s only 1 time so far that an update was on the slower side , but that’s purely cause eskom changed so often in that day , and no doubt having many many thousands of users , there’s strain on the servers .
Saved my life
by Jozfen on 2019/03/23 18:36
I’m so happy to have this app. Thanx for creating it. Also I see what you did with the name there....loooooool!!!!!! I’m a foreign student studying in South Africa. It’s nice to have a handy app that is clear on when the load shedding happens. Thanx once again!
Finally an accurate schedule tada!
by Jodi Susan on 2019/03/23 08:45
A simple, easy to use & most importantly accurate schedule! Thanks ⭐️
Essential for life in SA
by lolomari3 on 2019/03/23 07:24
Absolutely the best source of accurate, up-to-date info regarding load shedding. A little difficult to locate your area, but once you do it makes your day much easier to plan. Bravo. Would love to see location services enabled to pinpoint which area I’m in, to make it easy to add that area to my watch list.
Light Saver!!!!
by DiannePQ on 2019/03/22 17:49

Awesome App
by General T-Rex on 2019/03/22 16:20
Thank you for the great app. It has all the information I personally require and I love the positive message that is pushed through...especially when we are left in the dark...a funny message lightens up the mood💡
Great app
by AnsuyaB on 2019/03/22 15:31
It’s a great app. Just get your area right. Not sure why anyone would rate it one star!!
1 Star Ratings
by Added.said on 2019/03/22 15:29
Who ever rated this App 1 Star seriously need to check their heads. This App has been on point and 100% accurate. Keep it up
Love this App !
by Helen1951 on 2019/03/22 15:24
I’ve been using for about two weeks and love the info ... so easy to use and plan my day .... notifications help .... so far has been accurate and in line with the actual Eskom load shedding ... only issue was the ‘crashing’ of server ... but that seems to have been sorted
Great App
by HappyMamma2 on 2019/03/22 15:03
Great app to have! It helps me plan my day especially with a little baby.
Awesome

It’s exactly what you need, nothing more nothing less. Helps plan what malls/family I need to visit at what time lol. Good name also.
Super useful, love the jokes :)
by Webdoedie on 2019/03/22 14:10
Very useful - handy to know when there will be load shedding and knowing this as soon as Eskom announces it.
Lifesaver
by MahdiyehMae on 2019/03/22 14:02
This app rules my world ! From altering my cooking schedule to making sure I have something ready to watch in the laptop ... I have shared this with all the people I ‘ LIKE’ , the rest can fend for themselves .
Incorrect schedules
by schedulesepush on 2019/03/22 13:55
The app itself is fine, but the schedules are always incorrect for our area - I realize the incorrect info is coming from Eskom - but I can get the incorrect info directly from Eskom instead of using an app 😁
Well done
by DeziSa on 2019/03/22 13:52
On changing your cloud provider. Your app is managing the load much better! Great work!!
The hope of a nation
by Neila2424 on 2019/03/22 13:14
In a country that’s going through dark times, this app shines as a small ray of hope that no matter what our corrupt politicians destroy, there will always be ordinary South Africans who are willing to dedicate time, effort and talent to make things a little better for us all.
Great App
by titikel2015 on 2019/03/22 13:06
It's an outstanding app, easy to use. Great to plan the day ahead.

by Jenny S1 on 2019/03/22 04:59
Awesome app, highley recommend you download it if you haven’t already. It’s accurate and a great help to plan your day around load shedding. Well done guys
Great
by John Wicket on 2019/03/21 20:06
It is a great app sharing all the Load Shedding times. I really recommend it. It is easy to use and set up. With many areas. The only problem is that there is load Shedding.
not useful
by mkehu18 on 2019/03/21 19:27
not helpful if it says no load shedding and yet we are sitting in the dark
Great job!!!

A light in the dark
by Sleepwa on 2019/03/20 21:39
This app is amazing. I can be far more prepared for the dark spells and it gives me a sense of control when it might feel like there isn’t much left. 98% accurate and my go-to now on a daily basis. So grateful for this app! Thank you for the great work!
Awesome!
by Jane - Eastern Cape on 2019/03/20 21:07
So accurate! I check my app several times a day and it’s helped organize my life around our electricity outages. Well done guys - you’re doing a fantastic job! 🤗
I hate I need this app
by ladyterae on 2019/03/20 19:54
The fact that this app needs to exist is beyond me. Regardless, this app is everything to me during these periods. Nice job and thank you
Best load shedding app.
by Svn1490 on 2019/03/20 18:00
Sometimes gets too much traffic but best app for load shedding times.
Support this app! It’s great!
by Rich Alberts on 2019/03/20 07:08
Definitely an essential app for us. Simple and effective and works like it’s supposed to. I’m watching ads all the time to support it. Great idea to be able to choose to watch ads.
Dont lile the adverts

by marylittlebit on 2019/03/19 06:31
Very current and reliable. Would be helpful if there was a link to a current map with street names to help figure out what zone you are in.
Almost perfect !
by Kadir19 on 2019/03/18 17:10
If it wasn’t for the congested server when viewing the times as soon notifications are released , I would have given 5 stars. Other than that it’s an awesome app 👌!
Accuracy
by yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyrde on 2019/03/18 09:00
While load shedding times may be correct the App for the entire weekend shows we are back on and yet everyday it has taken more than 4 extra hours post LoadShedding for them to put us back online? Wld be great if App showed stages aswel as when areas were still off though! Boskruin 6B everyday a problem!
Name not suitable
by Mfigo on 2019/03/17 10:46
We all hate load shedding but this app is blowing up cos it's the only load shedding app that works, jus the name is stupid therefore 1 star
slow updates.
by Sardine1737 on 2019/03/16 15:28
Hmm. Never really have an idea when load shedding will occur with this app. The app doesn't refresh itself. (Annoying). It sort of works.
Incorrect information.
by RaffaIsr on 2019/03/16 12:42
Today Sat 16th March you telling us load shedding is currently on in Zone 7 from 14:00 hrs. It is now 14:40 and there is no LoadShedding in Sea Point or CBD
Can’t access
by MattC77 on 2019/03/16 10:58
Every time load shedding starts the app stops working!
Stability
by XTC.... on 2019/03/16 10:48
You need the stabilise your app. I am getting tired of we over capacity.
Works brilliantly (Sadly no longer)
by BloodCage on 2019/03/16 10:16
Edit: so as South Africa slowly falls apart load shedding is getting worse and worse and unfortunately if more then ten people are on this app at any given time one is unable to view load shedding information. So sadly changing my 5 star review to 1 star. I don’t often write reviews but this app deserved it! Easy to use and navigate and information is displayed in a very user friendly manner.
Like eskum...
by Spiker 6 on 2019/03/16 09:57
I keep getting out of capacity. That says to me that provision for usage was not made. "...like eskum provision was not made for over usage' 😳🤦🏻‍♂️😞😪 Other than that is is a great app...👍🏻
Poor service
by Don_SA on 2019/03/16 09:26
Come on guys. You’re as bad as Eskom. Always over capacity!
Need to upgrade
by Kashy222 on 2019/03/16 09:23
The app is helpful in present circumstances but the developers need to up their game & ample servers. Informative & accurate information.
Used to be useful
by Braddles19872012 on 2019/03/16 06:27
Loadshedding alert. Check app. Servers over capacity. Every single tome. App has now become useless.

Some ideas
by callisto7 on 2019/02/16 07:35
Hey Jeff. Maybe add a localised ditectory for generator rental or something like that. You are helping to identify a problem, maybe the app could also help peeps find a solution close to them
Cool up, but should give area push notifications
by marcatsea on 2019/02/14 23:56
App takes long to refresh and you may as well close it and reopen. You should also get push notifications maybe 15 mins before your chosen areas are supposed to be going down, and again when finished. Also when the stages are increased for 1 to 2 to 3 etc. otherwise a good app that I have installed on all my family’s phone - but would be TOTALLY AWESOME if they could add some of the extra functions in.
I would pay for this app
by mich2407 on 2019/02/14 17:33
What a pleasure you don’t keep having to start from scratch!!! If you charged I would happily pay a reasonable amount!!
Load shedding
by your site does not work on 2019/02/14 13:45
Your schedule for stage 2 for area 14 in western cape is not the same as the one for city of Cape Town. Yours states load shedding from 20.00-22.30 tonight whilst area 14 is not featured on the city’s schedule?
Area search
by shell5w on 2019/02/14 06:09
Great app - would be so helpful if we could input an actual street address to get a more exact load shedding zone - most people have no idea of which zone they fall into in a large suburb
Brilliant!!
by TPMKJ on 2019/02/13 19:25
Easy to use, and best of all SO ACCURATE!! Just make sure you add the correct area. Well done, your app makes load shedding easier to live with!!
Awesome !!!
by Lukeydee321 on 2019/02/13 18:46
I love this app so accurate and informative , way better and easier to understand than the Eskom website , the app actually got my area times correct when the Eskom website was completely wrong ..? Wow crazy !! But to be honest hopefully won’t need to use the app for to long ;)
Great app that makes planning for outages..
by Voda use on 2015/05/20 11:33
Great app. Good work from developers to iron out bugs resulting in some quite frequent updates. Latest version is very good. I use it almost daily to check when I am on schedule to be shedded .... Great for planning and pretty accurate
Very happy with the App
by Mercedes Benz_AMG on 2019/02/12 18:19
Sooooo before I get into the positives, I usually read a couple of the reviews. I purposely look for bad reviews to see what those guys have to say, and quite honestly - all you 1 star peeps are Wrong!! I don't know if the reviews are ancient, but if it's recent you, as the end-user, is at fault, not the app! I am inclined to believe there might be something wrong with your phone, or you are adding the wrong areas or something, cause I ain't experiencing anything you oakes are moaning about. I find the app brilliant. Easy to use. Accurate. Location searching, adding etc. easy. There's nothing to it, and that's what makes it great for the purpose it serves (theee annoying Load Shedding...) Good job "Jeff" 🤙🏻
Loved until today...

I have tried 4 times and 2 different offices in KZN and can’t get in the door!! Please help!!!
Love the app - would also love a MAP
by I'll never be an iGirl on 2019/02/13 08:41
Fantastic app, helps me cope quite smoothly with loadshedding but would LOVE a MAP too because I don't know which suburb EXTENSIONS I drive through and as some extensions are on different schedules, a map to identify the exact suburb/extension would REALLY help my route planning (Menlyn x1 (3) vs Menlyn x4 (13) - I can't even find maps on the Net to determine which one I drive through)... So I can avoid the intersections that are out.
Cool up, but should give area push notifications

Love this App !

I’ve been using for about two weeks and love the info ... so easy to use and plan my day .... notifications help .... so far has been accurate and in line with the actual Eskom load shedding ... only issue was the ‘crashing’ of server ... but that seems to have been sorted
Awesome !!!
by Lukeydee321 on 2019/02/13 18:46
I love this app so accurate and informative , way better and easier to understand than the Eskom website , the app actually got my area times correct when the Eskom website was completely wrong ..? Wow crazy !! But to be honest hopefully won’t need to use the app for to long ;)
Not in line with city power schedule
by @kezza26 on 2019/02/11 19:08
The app is very easy to use and so helpful with notifications etc. however it is not completely in line with the city power schedule. For example this Wednesday says no load shedding for stage 4 in my area 2B however city power schedule says we do have load shedding twice from midnight to 4:30am and again from 16:00 to 20:30. Can this discrepancy be rectified ?
Best App for loadshedding
by Amitaba on 2015/05/27 10:03
Simple, accurate and responsive. As good as the Eskom app is bad (I guess to be expected!!) This app provides timely notifications and detailed location awareness. I also find the "forecast" function reasonably accurate - a feat since even Eskom often doesn't seem to know what's going on :)
The hope of a nation
by Neila2424 on 2019/03/22 13:14
In a country that’s going through dark times, this app shines as a small ray of hope that no matter what our corrupt politicians destroy, there will always be ordinary South Africans who are willing to dedicate time, effort and talent to make things a little better for us all.
One bad feature of new design. The rest looks good
by PBSE on 2020/07/13 08:41
Not being able to see ALL the load shedding stages in one screen. The new app requires you to scroll to see the different LS stages. Would be better if it had a user controllable zoom feature so that users can select according to their preference. Otherwise, it has been very reliable and useful.
A light in the dark
by Sleepwa on 2019/03/20 21:39
This app is amazing. I can be far more prepared for the dark spells and it gives me a sense of control when it might feel like there isn’t much left. 98% accurate and my go-to now on a daily basis. So grateful for this app! Thank you for the great work!
Best loadshedding app!
by Labyy on 2018/12/05 07:16
This is a fantastic app and the notifications are very helpful as it saves me from having to check all the time. It’s up to date instantly I like that I can get 3 day forecasts and can add multiple suburbs. Well done! Eskoms app is useless, so thank you for this one!!!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Brilliant!
by AnnieMacD on 2015/07/24 05:19
The best loadshedding app there is. Only problem, as a very conservative person I find the play on the name offensive and find when I recommend I normally have to give a little speech first about the name. Of course only someone from SA would understand this 😜.
Finally not in the dark about load shedding anymore!
by Spookdrol on 2015/06/09 16:44
Awesome app! Gives push notifications for any area you set it up for. Warns on any changes is shedding by ESKOM and a 3 day look ahead on your area. If ESKOM worked this well, we wouldn't need this app!
No blackout times
by Lobo1234321 on 2015/05/20 15:13
The app only shows you the time of the load shedding stages. Doesn't provide you with the actual time that the power is going to be off in your area
Support this app! It’s great!
by Rich Alberts on 2019/03/20 07:08
Definitely an essential app for us. Simple and effective and works like it’s supposed to. I’m watching ads all the time to support it. Great idea to be able to choose to watch ads.
Works brilliantly (Sadly no longer)
by BloodCage on 2019/03/16 10:16
Edit: so as South Africa slowly falls apart load shedding is getting worse and worse and unfortunately if more then ten people are on this app at any given time one is unable to view load shedding information. So sadly changing my 5 star review to 1 star. I don’t often write reviews but this app deserved it! Easy to use and navigate and information is displayed in a very user friendly manner.
Awesome App
by General T-Rex on 2019/03/22 16:20
Thank you for the great app. It has all the information I personally require and I love the positive message that is pushed through...especially when we are left in the dark...a funny message lightens up the mood💡

slow updates.
by Sardine1737 on 2019/03/16 15:28
Hmm. Never really have an idea when load shedding will occur with this app. The app doesn't refresh itself. (Annoying). It sort of works.
Excellent
by Braaaaaaaiiiiiiiinsssss on 2015/07/26 17:39
The only app that I have enabled push notifications for. Love that you can monitor multiple neighbourhoods if you work/go to school in a different area to where you live. Great job! 👍
Great
by John Wicket on 2019/03/21 20:06
It is a great app sharing all the Load Shedding times. I really recommend it. It is easy to use and set up. With many areas. The only problem is that there is load Shedding.
Accuracy
by yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyrde on 2019/03/18 09:00
While load shedding times may be correct the App for the entire weekend shows we are back on and yet everyday it has taken more than 4 extra hours post LoadShedding for them to put us back online? Wld be great if App showed stages aswel as when areas were still off though! Boskruin 6B everyday a problem!
Very useful
by Jonnybn on 2020/07/19 04:46
Works so well in planning your schedule 3 days in advance but could you possibly add more days, maybe up to a week of schedule??? Thank you
Getting it wrong
by Earthsearch on 2019/12/13 19:18
This app told me I’m not being load shed and won’t be for the rest of the day due to my stage. I’m currently in the dark from 20:00 as per another stage and just saw a notification come up that that says loadshedding has been been suspended while I’m still sitting in the dark. Think Eksdom got their hands on this app
Great app... BUT!
by Peddy T on 2019/02/12 23:38
Thanks for the useful app except I am unable to locate my area on your list. I have spoken to a few friends with the same issue. Please add a tool to search for the correct area by typing in your address.
Awesome!
by Jane - Eastern Cape on 2019/03/20 21:07
So accurate! I check my app several times a day and it’s helped organize my life around our electricity outages. Well done guys - you’re doing a fantastic job! 🤗
I would pay for this app
by mich2407 on 2019/02/14 17:33
What a pleasure you don’t keep having to start from scratch!!! If you charged I would happily pay a reasonable amount!!

by Jozfen on 2019/03/23 18:36
I’m so happy to have this app. Thanx for creating it. Also I see what you did with the name there....loooooool!!!!!! I’m a foreign student studying in South Africa. It’s nice to have a handy app that is clear on when the load shedding happens. Thanx once again!
Easy peasy!
by jivetalkin' on 2020/03/13 09:41
Straight forward and simple. Gets the job done quickly and easily. A necessary tool to have these days. Well done!
Area search
by shell5w on 2019/02/14 06:09
Great app - would be so helpful if we could input an actual street address to get a more exact load shedding zone - most people have no idea of which zone they fall into in a large suburb
Almost perfect !
by Kadir19 on 2019/03/18 17:10
If it wasn’t for the congested server when viewing the times as soon notifications are released , I would have given 5 stars. Other than that it’s an awesome app 👌!
Lifesaver!
by Insta#girl21 on 2019/03/24 18:44
This app is the best thing to come out of a crap situation. Congrats and thank you to the developers for creating the most useful, user-friendly app to help navigate load-shedding in South Africa.
Some ideas
by callisto7 on 2019/02/16 07:35
Hey Jeff. Maybe add a localised ditectory for generator rental or something like that. You are helping to identify a problem, maybe the app could also help peeps find a solution close to them
Great app!
by Natalie-137 on 2019/02/28 17:43
An easy to use and informative app! It’s makes it easy to find information that is normally difficult to find.

Saves a lot of trouble with going to the website to find the current status for your area!
I hate I need this app
by ladyterae on 2019/03/20 19:54
The fact that this app needs to exist is beyond me. Regardless, this app is everything to me during these periods. Nice job and thank you
Brilliant!!
by TPMKJ on 2019/02/13 19:25
Easy to use, and best of all SO ACCURATE!! Just make sure you add the correct area. Well done, your app makes load shedding easier to live with!!
Thank you

Handy app to have in this day and age
by LAfernandes01# on 2020/08/21 05:36
Nice to have a heads up about loadshedding and come on the name is awesome!
Response time
by zardozky55 on 2020/08/14 15:10
Great app in general, BUT....whenever there is a load shedding announcement (which is when you really need to get info) the response is, well, several minutes. Obviously there is insufficient bandwidth to accommodate the volume of users.
New version
by psynomad on 2020/08/13 14:35
This new version seems very sluggish
Wheel of death
by #abdy on 2020/08/13 06:14
Now with adds chowing bandwidth and wheel of death ‘we have a problem’ try again later... not 100% reliable. Seems to be getting more like eskom itself.
Very useful

Loved until today...
by D1nx on 2020/07/15 15:48
Had to drop it to 3* from 4 1/2*. Because really who can get 5* right off the bat :). Absolutely hate the new design - really liked seeing a few days at a time. This is big and bulky, spread out and not aesthetically pleasing IMHO. Also, what happened to the forecast button? Even if it couldn’t always be accurate. No one knows with Eskom as we all know. Our problems though come after loadshedding - because of poorly maintained infrastructure our electrics blow 5 to 10 mins after power comes on. This past weekend we had no power from 3 pm on Sat to 2 pm on Sunday. Any magical way you can help Lynnwood Pretorians with getting that word to the ‘powers’ that be? Now that would be something!!! 🙏🏻😂
Difficulties
by Veeberg on 2020/07/15 07:15
Can’t see the whole grid for all 3 stages anymore. It’s cut off across the phone. When turned sideways you only get 1 day. Please fix. Thanks

by Marietjiem on 2020/03/14 10:21
Thank you for the informative app. Love the layout and updates but the only bad thing is that the app freeze or stuck when there is for ex. 20000 people on then I have to go out and come in later to check my schedule. Thank you

Works perfectly
by Superdave126 on 2020/03/11 23:40
Add your area and it works perfectly. Recommended to all in South Africa. Thanks for a great app! My only gripe is that this app is clearly made for android users, the UI ignores all of Apple’s design language for iOS. Icons, menus, no tabs on the bottom...even the animations are direct from android lollipop. It’s not a problem, just a small annoyance.
No schedules
by T321321 on 2020/03/11 13:19
The App does not have load shedding info for our area (says there is no load shedding while the power is off). Sent update to correct this, still shows the same info (no load shedding for the week in our area).
Pretty much the only reliable info on load shedding
by Fleaborg on 2020/03/11 06:24
I rely on this app on a daily basis to plan my day and run my business. The news providers are slow, Eskom is reliably useless, but these dudes keep me updated. The only niggle I have is that, when a change to load shedding is announced, the app can be a bit laggy when loading details for my areas. Maybe some more caching chaps? The whole schedule can’t be more than a couple of MB in JSON (or XML or YAML or whatever data interchange format you use). Just push that bad boy to the clients and then query it locally, no?

I have tried 4 times and 2 different offices in KZN and can’t get in the door!! Please help!!!

Reliable and updated regularly
by johnwmic on 2019/03/23 20:05
So with shedding stages changing frequently , or at least have been , Jeff manages to keep us updated quickly too . Find the app very reliable and the updates are pretty quick , able to see how the shedding affects us , so I’m able to plan my day and possibly the next day , so much better . There’s only 1 time so far that an update was on the slower side , but that’s purely cause eskom changed so often in that day , and no doubt having many many thousands of users , there’s strain on the servers .

Absolutely the best source of accurate, up-to-date info regarding load shedding. A little difficult to locate your area, but once you do it makes your day much easier to plan. Bravo. Would love to see location services enabled to pinpoint which area I’m in, to make it easy to add that area to my watch list.

The app itself is fine, but the schedules are always incorrect for our area - I realize the incorrect info is coming from Eskom - but I can get the incorrect info directly from Eskom instead of using an app 😁
Well done

Thanks guys. Really appreciate what you do. Plus the daily chatty note.
A light in the dark
by Sleepwa on 2019/03/20 21:39
This app is amazing. I can be far more prepared for the dark spells and it gives me a sense of control when it might feel like there isn’t much left. 98% accurate and my go-to now on a daily basis. So grateful for this app! Thank you for the great work!
Awesome!
by Jane - Eastern Cape on 2019/03/20 21:07
So accurate! I check my app several times a day and it’s helped organize my life around our electricity outages. Well done guys - you’re doing a fantastic job! 🤗
I hate I need this app
by ladyterae on 2019/03/20 19:54
The fact that this app needs to exist is beyond me. Regardless, this app is everything to me during these periods. Nice job and thank you
Best load shedding app.
by Svn1490 on 2019/03/20 18:00
Sometimes gets too much traffic but best app for load shedding times.
Support this app! It’s great!
by Rich Alberts on 2019/03/20 07:08
Definitely an essential app for us. Simple and effective and works like it’s supposed to. I’m watching ads all the time to support it. Great idea to be able to choose to watch ads.
Dont lile the adverts
by skip the ad on 2019/03/19 14:41
How do I stop the casino advert om my phone please!!!!
Great App!
by marylittlebit on 2019/03/19 06:31
Very current and reliable. Would be helpful if there was a link to a current map with street names to help figure out what zone you are in.
Almost perfect !
by Kadir19 on 2019/03/18 17:10
If it wasn’t for the congested server when viewing the times as soon notifications are released , I would have given 5 stars. Other than that it’s an awesome app 👌!
Accuracy
by yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyrde on 2019/03/18 09:00
While load shedding times may be correct the App for the entire weekend shows we are back on and yet everyday it has taken more than 4 extra hours post LoadShedding for them to put us back online? Wld be great if App showed stages aswel as when areas were still off though! Boskruin 6B everyday a problem!
Name not suitable
by Mfigo on 2019/03/17 10:46
We all hate load shedding but this app is blowing up cos it's the only load shedding app that works, jus the name is stupid therefore 1 star
slow updates.
by Sardine1737 on 2019/03/16 15:28
Hmm. Never really have an idea when load shedding will occur with this app. The app doesn't refresh itself. (Annoying). It sort of works.
Incorrect information.
by RaffaIsr on 2019/03/16 12:42
Today Sat 16th March you telling us load shedding is currently on in Zone 7 from 14:00 hrs. It is now 14:40 and there is no LoadShedding in Sea Point or CBD
Can’t access
by MattC77 on 2019/03/16 10:58
Every time load shedding starts the app stops working!
Stability
by XTC.... on 2019/03/16 10:48
You need the stabilise your app. I am getting tired of we over capacity.
Works brilliantly (Sadly no longer)
by BloodCage on 2019/03/16 10:16
Edit: so as South Africa slowly falls apart load shedding is getting worse and worse and unfortunately if more then ten people are on this app at any given time one is unable to view load shedding information. So sadly changing my 5 star review to 1 star. I don’t often write reviews but this app deserved it! Easy to use and navigate and information is displayed in a very user friendly manner.
Like eskum...
by Spiker 6 on 2019/03/16 09:57
I keep getting out of capacity. That says to me that provision for usage was not made. "...like eskum provision was not made for over usage' 😳🤦🏻‍♂️😞😪 Other than that is is a great app...👍🏻
Poor service
by Don_SA on 2019/03/16 09:26
Come on guys. You’re as bad as Eskom. Always over capacity!
Need to upgrade
by Kashy222 on 2019/03/16 09:23
The app is helpful in present circumstances but the developers need to up their game & ample servers. Informative & accurate information.
Used to be useful
by Braddles19872012 on 2019/03/16 06:27
Loadshedding alert. Check app. Servers over capacity. Every single tome. App has now become useless.
Schedule wrong
by Demnick4248 on 2019/03/14 19:53
Your schedules for group 6 Port Elizabeth is wrong this week
Don’t be those guys
by Mr.munro307 on 2019/03/10 06:49
Remove ads, or I’m uninstalling
Great app!
by Natalie-137 on 2019/02/28 17:43
An easy to use and informative app! It’s makes it easy to find information that is normally difficult to find.
The best
by Old simpleton on 2019/02/28 14:30
I don’t know how anyone can be without it thanks it’s great
Some ideas
by callisto7 on 2019/02/16 07:35
Hey Jeff. Maybe add a localised ditectory for generator rental or something like that. You are helping to identify a problem, maybe the app could also help peeps find a solution close to them
Cool up, but should give area push notifications
by marcatsea on 2019/02/14 23:56
App takes long to refresh and you may as well close it and reopen. You should also get push notifications maybe 15 mins before your chosen areas are supposed to be going down, and again when finished. Also when the stages are increased for 1 to 2 to 3 etc. otherwise a good app that I have installed on all my family’s phone - but would be TOTALLY AWESOME if they could add some of the extra functions in.
I would pay for this app
by mich2407 on 2019/02/14 17:33
What a pleasure you don’t keep having to start from scratch!!! If you charged I would happily pay a reasonable amount!!
Load shedding
by your site does not work on 2019/02/14 13:45
Your schedule for stage 2 for area 14 in western cape is not the same as the one for city of Cape Town. Yours states load shedding from 20.00-22.30 tonight whilst area 14 is not featured on the city’s schedule?
Area search
by shell5w on 2019/02/14 06:09
Great app - would be so helpful if we could input an actual street address to get a more exact load shedding zone - most people have no idea of which zone they fall into in a large suburb
Brilliant!!
by TPMKJ on 2019/02/13 19:25
Easy to use, and best of all SO ACCURATE!! Just make sure you add the correct area. Well done, your app makes load shedding easier to live with!!
Awesome !!!
by Lukeydee321 on 2019/02/13 18:46
I love this app so accurate and informative , way better and easier to understand than the Eskom website , the app actually got my area times correct when the Eskom website was completely wrong ..? Wow crazy !! But to be honest hopefully won’t need to use the app for to long ;)
Great app that makes planning for outages..
by Voda use on 2015/05/20 11:33
Great app. Good work from developers to iron out bugs resulting in some quite frequent updates. Latest version is very good. I use it almost daily to check when I am on schedule to be shedded .... Great for planning and pretty accurate
Very happy with the App
by Mercedes Benz_AMG on 2019/02/12 18:19
Sooooo before I get into the positives, I usually read a couple of the reviews. I purposely look for bad reviews to see what those guys have to say, and quite honestly - all you 1 star peeps are Wrong!! I don't know if the reviews are ancient, but if it's recent you, as the end-user, is at fault, not the app! I am inclined to believe there might be something wrong with your phone, or you are adding the wrong areas or something, cause I ain't experiencing anything you oakes are moaning about. I find the app brilliant. Easy to use. Accurate. Location searching, adding etc. easy. There's nothing to it, and that's what makes it great for the purpose it serves (theee annoying Load Shedding...) Good job "Jeff" 🤙🏻
Loved until today...
by D1nx on 2020/07/15 15:48
Had to drop it to 3* from 4 1/2*. Because really who can get 5* right off the bat :). Absolutely hate the new design - really liked seeing a few days at a time. This is big and bulky, spread out and not aesthetically pleasing IMHO. Also, what happened to the forecast button? Even if it couldn’t always be accurate. No one knows with Eskom as we all know. Our problems though come after loadshedding - because of poorly maintained infrastructure our electrics blow 5 to 10 mins after power comes on. This past weekend we had no power from 3 pm on Sat to 2 pm on Sunday. Any magical way you can help Lynnwood Pretorians with getting that word to the ‘powers’ that be? Now that would be something!!! 🙏🏻😂
Reliable and updated regularly
by johnwmic on 2019/03/23 20:05
So with shedding stages changing frequently , or at least have been , Jeff manages to keep us updated quickly too . Find the app very reliable and the updates are pretty quick , able to see how the shedding affects us , so I’m able to plan my day and possibly the next day , so much better . There’s only 1 time so far that an update was on the slower side , but that’s purely cause eskom changed so often in that day , and no doubt having many many thousands of users , there’s strain on the servers .
More of this type of SOE apps please
by KZN faulty on 2019/04/03 10:10
You guys have done such an amazing job of providing info on Eskom services, please can you develop an app that gives us a view on the status at Home Affairs offices - the lack of info on the systems being offline are never shared until you are number 500 in the queue and have been waiting for 6 hours!! I have tried 4 times and 2 different offices in KZN and can’t get in the door!! Please help!!!
Love the app - would also love a MAP
by I'll never be an iGirl on 2019/02/13 08:41
Fantastic app, helps me cope quite smoothly with loadshedding but would LOVE a MAP too because I don't know which suburb EXTENSIONS I drive through and as some extensions are on different schedules, a map to identify the exact suburb/extension would REALLY help my route planning (Menlyn x1 (3) vs Menlyn x4 (13) - I can't even find maps on the Net to determine which one I drive through)... So I can avoid the intersections that are out.
Cool up, but should give area push notifications

Essential for life in SA
by lolomari3 on 2019/03/23 07:24
Absolutely the best source of accurate, up-to-date info regarding load shedding. A little difficult to locate your area, but once you do it makes your day much easier to plan. Bravo. Would love to see location services enabled to pinpoint which area I’m in, to make it easy to add that area to my watch list.
Brilliant
by Cavman223 on 2015/06/30 10:44
So easy, so user friendly, light years ahead of eskoms site in terms of convenience and very informative! Thanks to this app I'm now always up to date on my load shedding, and exactly when my load shedding will end. Fantastic app that every person with a smart phone in South Africa should have installed!
Love this App !
by Helen1951 on 2019/03/22 15:24
I’ve been using for about two weeks and love the info ... so easy to use and plan my day .... notifications help .... so far has been accurate and in line with the actual Eskom load shedding ... only issue was the ‘crashing’ of server ... but that seems to have been sorted
Awesome !!!
by Lukeydee321 on 2019/02/13 18:46

Not in line with city power schedule
by @kezza26 on 2019/02/11 19:08
The app is very easy to use and so helpful with notifications etc. however it is not completely in line with the city power schedule. For example this Wednesday says no load shedding for stage 4 in my area 2B however city power schedule says we do have load shedding twice from midnight to 4:30am and again from 16:00 to 20:30. Can this discrepancy be rectified ?
Best App for loadshedding
by Amitaba on 2015/05/27 10:03
Simple, accurate and responsive. As good as the Eskom app is bad (I guess to be expected!!) This app provides timely notifications and detailed location awareness. I also find the "forecast" function reasonably accurate - a feat since even Eskom often doesn't seem to know what's going on :)
The hope of a nation
by Neila2424 on 2019/03/22 13:14
In a country that’s going through dark times, this app shines as a small ray of hope that no matter what our corrupt politicians destroy, there will always be ordinary South Africans who are willing to dedicate time, effort and talent to make things a little better for us all.
One bad feature of new design. The rest looks good
by PBSE on 2020/07/13 08:41
Not being able to see ALL the load shedding stages in one screen. The new app requires you to scroll to see the different LS stages. Would be better if it had a user controllable zoom feature so that users can select according to their preference. Otherwise, it has been very reliable and useful.

Best loadshedding app!
by Labyy on 2018/12/05 07:16
This is a fantastic app and the notifications are very helpful as it saves me from having to check all the time. It’s up to date instantly I like that I can get 3 day forecasts and can add multiple suburbs. Well done! Eskoms app is useless, so thank you for this one!!!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Brilliant!
by AnnieMacD on 2015/07/24 05:19
The best loadshedding app there is. Only problem, as a very conservative person I find the play on the name offensive and find when I recommend I normally have to give a little speech first about the name. Of course only someone from SA would understand this 😜.
Finally not in the dark about load shedding anymore!
by Spookdrol on 2015/06/09 16:44
Awesome app! Gives push notifications for any area you set it up for. Warns on any changes is shedding by ESKOM and a 3 day look ahead on your area. If ESKOM worked this well, we wouldn't need this app!
No blackout times
by Lobo1234321 on 2015/05/20 15:13
The app only shows you the time of the load shedding stages. Doesn't provide you with the actual time that the power is going to be off in your area
Support this app! It’s great!
by Rich Alberts on 2019/03/20 07:08
Definitely an essential app for us. Simple and effective and works like it’s supposed to. I’m watching ads all the time to support it. Great idea to be able to choose to watch ads.

by General T-Rex on 2019/03/22 16:20

The only app that I have enabled push notifications for. Love that you can monitor multiple neighbourhoods if you work/go to school in a different area to where you live. Great job! 👍
Great
by John Wicket on 2019/03/21 20:06
It is a great app sharing all the Load Shedding times. I really recommend it. It is easy to use and set up. With many areas. The only problem is that there is load Shedding.

by Jonnybn on 2020/07/19 04:46
Works so well in planning your schedule 3 days in advance but could you possibly add more days, maybe up to a week of schedule??? Thank you
Getting it wrong
by Earthsearch on 2019/12/13 19:18
This app told me I’m not being load shed and won’t be for the rest of the day due to my stage. I’m currently in the dark from 20:00 as per another stage and just saw a notification come up that that says loadshedding has been been suspended while I’m still sitting in the dark. Think Eksdom got their hands on this app
Great app... BUT!
by Peddy T on 2019/02/12 23:38
Thanks for the useful app except I am unable to locate my area on your list. I have spoken to a few friends with the same issue. Please add a tool to search for the correct area by typing in your address.
Awesome!

I’m so happy to have this app. Thanx for creating it. Also I see what you did with the name there....loooooool!!!!!! I’m a foreign student studying in South Africa. It’s nice to have a handy app that is clear on when the load shedding happens. Thanx once again!
Easy peasy!

Incredibly useful
