Another news app 5/5
Good for your local news
Better than local newspapers 4/5
By Ben Lomond Trails
Great resource-local reporting done quickly
Keeps improving 4/5
The app continues to improve hence 4 Stars now. There are still occasional issues with links taking you to the wrong location.
As for the content, spelling, grammar, political bias, sensationalism and editing, Patch is on par with Newsday. That’s a fairly low standard.
Basically the Notification gives all the info I need and reading the story is usually unnecessary.
Local news 5/5
Great app for the local news that doesn’t earn coverage in the printed rags.
Patch is great 5/5
By Chacha Bobo
I like the patch!
It has up to date news, weather and real estate!
Nice app for local news and events 5/5
I enjoy Patch. I stopped the paper due to the expense and that it was mostly ads. Patch keeps me in touch with local news and events. I like being able to have multiple cities available.
Nothing more than realtor! 1/5
99% of this shows realtor sales in around your area. Weather is WAY off! Yesterday showed 100% rain and we received a big fat ZERO rain all day same went the day before. There is news, but only average of 2! Today there was no news, just again, you guessed it...MORE HOUSES FOR SALE! When you do receive news (it’s not updated regularly) it’s usually already a day late. And it doesn’t even allow me to choose my town, just the next largest city close to me! Worthless app!

Crashes upon launch every time. 1/5
Works ok on my iPhone but Crashes upon launch every time on my older iPad.
Great App!!! 5/5
Great app for getting updates about our hometown as well nearby cities!!! Very informative!!!
Not local 1/5
By jofus day
The news I got was for places up to 200 miles away. It is a nice idea, but if it doesn’t work, why bother.
Writers w/political bias 1/5
Too much political bias in some of your articles. Get better writers. Local news typically avoids it. Your writer “Colin M” is writing with an agenda that cannot be allowed to continue. This is a news app, not his personal Facebook page to make political rants. Get rid of him.
Great app for local information 5/5
So far I really like this app. My go to source for local news. I would like to see more information on restaurants in the Mchenry and surrounding areas.
Way Too Invasive!!! 1/5
I love to read the news, but when it FORCES YOU to acknowledge that you’ve read it, the site has gone too far.
I am trying to figure our how it will leave me alone now!
It would be nice to get a deletable email to link us to the news if we are interested and have the time, but this forces you to acknowledge that you have read their articles.
I was getting the emails and then decided to try out the app. I’ve been using it for quite some time now. I love the ease of use, that I can get events, news, updates on news, entertainment and other goings on in my community all in one place. I’m also impressed with how fast important alerts are received and the follow ups. This app is fantastic at keeping me informed in every way. It runs great and I am very happy with it. Kudos to the team who keep this app running top notch!
Thank you 5/5
It’s great to learn about local events & issues I would otherwise not know about. Keep up the greatness.
Patch for Local News 5/5
Patch is the perfect app for a quick update on news in your neighborhood and local area - Patch covers topics that have long since disappeared from the daily metro papers and online apps. I check Patch daily and follow on Twitter - quick and easy way to stay informed - highly recommend.
Use as the time,only thing is seems that be a bit behind real time.
Good,,could be better 4/5
Like the app a lot, but the amount of ads that you need to navigate through to follow an article is VERY ANNOYING !!!
Excellent App 5/5
Great app. I use it on my iPad and iPhone. This area lacks news coverage and the Patch steps in nicely and provides the local news and happenings to keep me informed.
Very good local news tool 4/5
I love this app because of its focus on very local news.My only complaint is that it is not local enough. Keep trying
Find a spell check program 2/5
By Cpt Camel
Or better, an editor. As much as I like the local reporting when it takes place, the lack of proper grammar or spelling makes it look Bush League. The childish writing just reinforces the pattern. Patch, find kids that have graduated high school without CT.
Nice local news 5/5
Really wish tho I would stop seeing high school news I don't have that need.
Great news app for local news 5/5
You get to define “local”.
Good app! 5/5
I get my news update every day from this app, quite happy with it!
Always read 4/5
I get immersed in articles that pop up in my notifications. Interesting and important stories that the big news agencies don’t bother to cover. Local stories that are important to me.
Excellent !! Keep it up 😀 5/5

I like this app for local news
Great app 5/5
I love this! It’s great to know local news!
Voiceover accessibility problems 3/5
After town is selected and notifications enabled tabs at bottom of screen do not speak when navigated (minor problem). Headlines speak but articles under them do not speak. If articles are pixilated pictures there’s nthing patch developers can do to improve this situation though. Please test this app with VoiceOver turned on and both look and listen as you go for mismatches between what you see and what you hear. Those mismatches will be the VoiceOver accessibility problems and yu may even find more than I found.
Patch good few too many ads 4/5
Patch good, few too many ads though
Great Hometown News App 5/5

Poor Navigation 1/5
By Kelly's IT
It would be nice if the app saved setting to navigate through the main app job search etc. I seem to get stuck in the local news very frustrating. 😤
Patch Loudoun County 4/5
Very useful information for our family to receive covering the latest happenings in our region. Nicely designed and very user friendly.

As Local as Local Nees Can Get! 3/5
By Tom in Jersey
As a public advocate and frequent contributor to Patch, I am so glad Patch is here to inform the public of so many things going on in one's community.👍
Timely information 5/5
I just started using this app. Very useful information about our location.
Since my last review, Patch has fixed the tech issues. Its much more user friendly now 👍
Continues to be a great site for fast news.
No information 1/5
By cartoon ds1976
Saw the app advertised and tried it. The app contains no useful information whatsoever. Most things are out of date or for other locations. An example is that the newest article is 5 months old. Maybe it’s better for other locations but I think that this is pretty useless for Pennsylvania towns.
By Johns News
Good app very useful for local news & updates
Great app! Very informative.
Great with breaking local events! 5/5
I really appreciate how timely the information provided by the Patch is.
Mostly useless and lacking detail 2/5
Of the few dozen articles I’ve read maybe 1 or 2 of them have any details or dates. They assume you know what day an article was written and give no details in most articles wasting my time.
