Difficult to get accurate schedules
thats the thing.... eskom's schedules are about as reliable as eskom itself, .... at least speaking for our area.
for us, best we can do is expect the load shedding to start somewhere from 8PM to 11PM, anywhere inbetween.
actually starting to get frustrating when we get all ready, prepared for it, and it doesnt happen.... or we reckon we've still got a few minutes, and suddenly ....
i'll rather stay without another thing that's not accurate :)

iOS app seems to simply link to the schedules in the browser (scanned pdf's). Not particularly helpful for my area (East London).

Why are CityPower load shedding schedules 4.5h long and all other places (Eskom, Durban, Cape Town, Pretoria, etc) only 2.5h long?

No app will be accurate if the relevant metro decides to deviate from their schedules.

Example:

Eskom announces stage 1 from 4-5pm and stage 2 from 5-10pm.

Our metro's schedules has each slot starting on an even hour, eg. 2,4,6,8, etc.

To avoid a mess, our metro goes straight to stage 2 from 4pm.

Now any and all Apps are ISM as they use the metro's published schedules...

We gave up before even starting and added crowdsourced outages.

Hi, I have this on my iPad and find it to be very good. Is there a way to get this on a Nokia windows device?
