Addfree load shedding app

This app does exactly what those other load shedding app does, but because it is a COCT app it's add free, in spite of being free, which is very big in my book.
What I do feel can be improved upon, is the app has a sense of being incompleteness to it, I can't exactly put my finger on it. Maybe it's the navigation, which is not the worst I've seen but something feels off in that department and the fact the whenever there's a red notification bubble on an app, it should go away when opening the app or reading it's message in the notification area. With this app, I've navigated the app, but I can not find why there's a red bubble with a 1 or 2 in it to make it go away. It's the small stuff that annoys me.

Works as expected for load shedding

I’ve only tested load shedding part but it takes out the confusion of the Eskom vs City stage levels. Map shows nicely which areas are where, quickly add an area, and shows graphically where load shedding is happening and which area is next. Pity so few seem to know about the app.

Current + Next Loadshedding Map is Good!

This app looks pretty useful for City of Cape Town electricity users. Biggest perks: being able to automatically find out what zone you’re in based on phone location plus having a map which shows which areas are currently experiencing loadshedding and which will be hit next (ie very useful to help plan routes through areas with robots that might be affected by loadshedding)!
