Very happy with the App

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" 🤙🏻

Reliable and updated regularly

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 .

D1nx ,

Loved until today...

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!!! 🙏🏻😂
