You can access the load shedding lookup tool for Cape Town to your mobile phone so that you don’t have to type the link, open a browser, or even navigate! You can simply add the page to your home screen, be on an iPhone, iPad, or any Android device!
Open up Chrome for Android and navigate to ldsd.co.za. Tap the menu button and choose the “Add to homescreen” option. Simply confirm, and Chrome will add the simple link to your home screen. If you use Firefox for Android, you can follow the same steps – Menu -> Page -> Add to Homescreen
On Apple iPad / iPhone
You can only add to home screen on an Apple Device from the Safari browser. Open Safari (the standard browser icon) and navigate to ldsd.co.za. Tap the Share button in the browser toolbar — a rectangle icon with the arrow pointing upward you’d also use to send a link or print a page. It’s on the bar at the top of the screen on an iPad, and on the bar at the bottom of the screen on an iPhone or iPod Touch. Tap the Add to Home Screen icon in that menu and an icon will be added to your display.
That way, you can simply hit the icon on your phone and keep up-to-date on stages, status, areas and timings around loadshedding in Cape Town.
