Hein Joubert

Best app there is! Very informational and helpful.

jeremy abrahams

Awesomeness Very impressed with this app

Gustav Cloete

Excellent Easy to set up. Can even rename areas as you like, eg. 'Home' or 'Factory'. Colours make it easy to understand. Accurate. Tabs for multiple areas are so handy. No fuzz with unnessisary info. The best load shed app!!

Emilia De Klerk

Love it Thanks for great app and great service!

J Gous

Great App Thank you much. It works great! Wish Eskom can be just 50% as efficient.

Helen Loggenberg

Of no use to me My area is not on here. City of Cape Town zone 16

Lynton Brown

Handy! Does what it says and does it well. Love the multiple locations.

Ephraim Ndlovu

Convenience of planning... Very convenient for us busy people who need to plan ahead!

Bruce Smyth

Great App! A great app that shows multiple areas in a calendar format, while also allowing me to turn off the pesky notifications every time something changes. If I want to know the schedule I'll look, I don’t need to be bombarded with notifications all day and night long. Thanks for this!

richard sepekwa moratlatli

Precise and Spot On This app is accurate on when the load shedding is gonna be in my area. I wonder what the other guy was on about coz it also features Municipal areas. Big ups to the programmer and his team :)

Wandall Saunders

Suburbs not showing or added Thanx for assisting me u are correct I found both which I added but they say load shedding starts 17h30 but it actually started at 12h30 which i dont know when it stop, how is this helpfull to me

Met Uysh

Thank you! Many apps around but this is the only one that actually shows my area! Most complete app.

Bert van der Schulp

Best load shedding app by far. You can see at a glance what the present status is and you are warned beforehand when the status is changing.

Mark Gerber

One of the best load shedding apps and if you can't find your location in the zones, just ask! They are really on top of updates

Melanie van Deemter

Awesome Very helpful. A couple of places not available yet. Please add Nelson Mandela metro.

Peter Bartlett

Peter Bartlett User friendly and intuitive; Developer also very responsive to suggestions and mods.

Awesome Does exactly what i want... Simple and clear. Not complicated easily find my area...

Bradley Chapman

I love it Very accurate . 6 stars for u. Thank you.

GF Kleynhans

Great app. Compliments to the developers

Lourens De Bruyn

Official Eskom blurb only Very limited coverage. Same as on eskom website. Avoid if you do not live in one of the large cities

S.G Wilken

Works great in Mbombela The times have been spot on except for the early morning notifications.

Qurash Ramlal

Works well but outdated App works well, though the loaf shedding times dont correspond to my zone

Quintin Lourens

nice app i stay in Marlands, and having load shedding now, app seems to be spot on, very nice work

Jan van der Merwe

Not amazing... How on earth shall I know my Zone... What about a suburb name?

Melanie Weber

Awesome! Has been spot on so far!

Ivan Thurtell

Ora Selamolela

Awesome Awesome

Amanda Van As-James

Dont know yet! Lets see first. I dont know how it works so I can not rate. What does stage 1, 2 or 3 mean? Lol Yeah, I know ... I'm clueless ...

Jean Meyer

Finding in which suburb extention i fall into How do i, by searching my street address, see in which extention of my suburb i fall into? Current there are about 6 option and i have to way of selecting the right one, unless i add all of then. When i do that, it only allows me to group a few. And is there no way to save those under one name i.e. home vs. Work etc?

Riaan Hollander

Best app sofar, what you is is what u get. And on the dot

Jacques Stassen

Not accurate Give warnings of maybe off, than the power is already off. Sometimes it shows no load shedding than we sit in the dark. It was spot on for Nelspruit, but now it is not even close.


Not accurate Says today will be load shedding but there is nothing

Freddy Mohale

Nice I loved it this one is good number one

Lee Trueman

Lee Trueman Referd ! Via good friend who is a believer.

Riaan Swart

Kak Ads in a loadshedding schedule? Are you serious? Like loadshedding isn't bad enough.

Keet Howes

Works very well with excellent support


Great App...I like its precision.

Chantelle Buitendag

Awe It is awesome

Eric Koekemoer

Very good Love this

jacques de jonge

It's one of the stupidest apps ever. It's just a dumb way to make money.

Jan Kitching

Loadshedding Notifier Very handy and quite accurate App. Thanks.

Deon Swart

Loadshed intervals for Polokwane is wrong. It's 2 hrs not 2.5 hrs. Otherwise a GREAT APP. Keep up the good work. Thx for the reply. Lets hope that extra time never happens.

Jason Chiu

You know the problem is real when they created an app for this issue BTW there's a bug, in advanced search when Johannesburg city power is selected the app crashes

Jacques O'Connell

Used to work..... Keeps crashing when selecting a municipality from the advanced search menu. (Municipal -> eastern cape -> CRASH

Jabu Malinga

Simply the best It gets some wrong. Don't believe it's the app developers' fault. I have never been loadshed without pre-warning, even 15min before Eskom's antics. I suppose it is the late warnings from Eskom. Love your app. I know I may be hated by some eletrictly frustrated RSA people for this suggestion . However consider having a paid version. I am keen to donate.

Linda Cremer

Awesome This app is awesome, very accurate . I am very happy with it . Don't want to repeat myself but if anyone is looking for an app to notify load shedding, this app is brilliant, very accurate. Spot on. ????

Megan de Vos

This app is awesome and therefore i rate it a 5star and Brent thank you very much for your assistance and clearing up my mistake I will definitely recommend it to everyone

Daniel Rudewig

Daniel HTC One Not half bad. Very simple and not much you can get wrong on it. Doesn't always let you know when Eskom's changed their mind about NOT cutting your juice, but at least it'll stop you from putting that cake into the oven before they DO cut it.

Rudi Bartsch

Must have in South Africa Don't be caught in the dark by load shedding. Get this to view schedules and current load shedding status level, as well as be notified of loadshedding forecast. Dev is also awesome and very helpful. Interface is clean, buttery and functional and lends a lot to material design, none of which even the official Vodacom app can achieve.

Dwaynne Greve

The Best This is by far the best load shedding app. Quick and easy to use and does not require any unnecessary permissions. If there was an ad free version I would definitely pay for it. Thank you for a great app.

Lesley Moore

Best load shedding app I've tried a couple of load shedding info apps. This one is the best by far. Notifications are reliable and accurate. Thanks for a great app.

albert combrink

Great app You can save & edit zone info for easy reference. One star witheld as it would be great to have a "forward info" feature to easily alert family and kids at home.

Antony Heij

Meyersdal ??? First app that I've found that ACCURATELY predicts Meyersdal load shedding. Shot a lot for a great app!!!!!

Konrad van Rensburg

Best App on Loadshedding I emailed the developer about our area not being on the app.The developer responded very quick.This app is constantly being updated and improved.Excellent job as Moogopong is 100% supported!I would give this 10 stars if it allowed me.Best app by far.If you are looking for a reliable loadshedding app this one is the Winner!!

David Boekhoud

David Boekhoud Very accurate app. Thanks.

Prem Govender

Very reliable. Good response from developers. Quick update.

Annemari Ricketts

Love this App This App helps me be prepared for any loadshedding situation and always gives early notice! It helps to have this when running a retail shop and even for planning supper at home (will it be the gas stove or electric oven). Keep up the good work.

Cindi De Ridder

There is a saying "Rather be safe than sorry" and this app helps to be safe....

Calvin Elliott

Good app Gives accurate info, and doesn't bother you when it doesn't need to.

Jonathan Davies

Very useful app Has saved me a lot of grief in the past.

Useful and accurate Whilst the interface isn't brilliant, it's effective and efficient. Thanks for the effort.

Glyn Fogell

Very useful Eskom and Cape Town don't always agree but the app gives the "safe" view of life so never taken by surprise.

Ray Sansom

Ray Never failed yet. Very useful. Like it.

debbie oberholzer

LOADSHEDDING APP It warns me before loadsheddings kicks in so that i can be prepared


Works well, pre warns of load shedding. No problems experienced

Marinda Bekker

Works perfect. Like the early warnings.
