Just in time to cancel your weekend plans, Eskom has confirmed that loadshedding is back on. Off. You know what I mean.
Because municipal power supply is managed by multiple authorities in different locations, actually keeping track of the schedule can be almost impossible – unless you’ve got the EskomSePush app. Developed by Herman Maritz and Dan Wells, this free app will save you where local bureaucracy has failed and its name throws some (unironic) shade at our national power grid.
The app uses your location to sort through the incomprehensible mess of this and that, identifies the correct loadshedding times for your zone, and sends push notifications when a power out is expected so you know when to charge your Kindle and unplug your things.
