What’s New

Version 3.0.7

This has been a strange time for all of us. We’re stuck at home. Jeff has not been wasting this time. Working on himself and working on the app.

A talented designer inspired us with a much needed design update. More on this on our Twitter page :)

Jeff is tired of people confusing him with “the power company”. So we decided to make a huge branding mistake: We change the name. But this also gives us opportunity to think about other things _sePush. Don’t like it? #blameJeff

Convenient, but has some quirks and push notifications are often late

My municipality’s own load shedding schedules are incomprehensible and trying to find which suburbs will experience load shedding when is a nightmare. This app allows me to search for schedules by suburb, making things a lot easier. The app is, however, not without issue. Push notifications are often late. The app often incorrectly displays the time until load shedding or the amount of time left till the end of load shedding. E.g. it’s 7am and the app correctly shows that load shedding starts at 10am, but it claims that there is 42 minutes till load shedding starts. Late push notifications are understandable, since their servers are likely overloaded. But the other problem seems really odd. Also, the app doesn’t store schedules locally on your device. This means that when you’re offline, you can’t check your schedule.

i want to thank you for developing this app & making this disaster a bit more manageable so that we can actually plan our lives ahead of pending doom...

i think bootybopper needs to be a little less inconsiderate. i think the use of the word “popular” is a little misplaced, but rather the word “demand” would be better used, & that “demand” being a result of a government that put us here. not once did i read a “thank you”, or a word such as “appreciate” in bootyboppers review. it’s pretty obvious that eskomsepush are aware of the “demand”, being app developers, & are working on the “server” issue as we speak. thank you again & glad i got this in before our next load shed at 20H00 that eskomsepush informed me of hours ago💛

Further in the dark ,


Since installing this app I have unfortunately found myself further in the dark. Perhaps I should have first found out where the 5 star raters live before “signing up”. The app is currently informing me that my area is load shedding now and is left with 2 hours and counting down. This could not be further from the truth. Another thing is that I thought the info on the app is sourced independently meaning we have someone who gets the info from the people who actually do the switching off of power. In my opinion those are the only people with the real times for shedding not even Eskom’s executives know the times. Any way back to my review. Im rating this app 1 star because its been completely useless for me for both my area of employment( where I am now) and my area of residence which strangely enough shed last night at some awkward random time not even similar to the Eskom schedule nor EskomSePush schedule. Next time please get the info from the guys who switch off the power not the website schedule please.
Hope this helps improvements.
