Good Smart Phone app for Nepal's Load Shedding scheduleHi All,
I recently discovered a iPhone app that is great for finding out when the load shedding schedules for every group in Nepal are. If it is your first time in Nepal and you're coming in the dry season there is a lack of electricity and the power regularly cuts out, but at scheduled times.
Anyway the app is called BattiGayo and it is set up well and is user friendly. Just find out what group you're in and it is all ready to go, it will even come up with a notification on your phone saying "LOADSHEEDING starting in "x" minutes" (depending on if you turn it on or not).
The App updates via an internet connection. So it's a little easier than text messaging 2722 with the group number

1Thanks for the tip. I'm just heading back to my "second home" in a little over two weeks. This will be helpful. I'm usually in the middle of cooking dinner when the power goes off and the rice cooker quits! The schedule published on the Internet by Nepal Electric Corp. has not been too accurate - maybe this one will be better.

2Yep the notifications should help you out with the dinner situation!
Not sure if you check http://myrepublica.com/ they normally have the load shedding times on their website on the right hand side, but the BattiGayo app is good for when you are not on a computer
