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)!

Bad UX with limit access

I honestly thought this App would be top tier seeing that it is officially supported by the COCT. My area doesn’t even show up on the map, though I can easily add my area in other load-shedding apps.

The user experience is just bad and feels like this App was made in 2007… fault reporting or enquiries redirects you outside of the app to a web page… surely this could’ve been incorporated into the App? I mean what is the purpose of this App then? I might aswel just use the browser, at lease I can view my area for load-shedding on there. What an inconvenience…
