Enjoying the Patch app 5/5
Loving the hyper local news. Easy to use app. Especially like the summary part. Maybe I’ll write for it one day.
Excellent local news apps 5/5
Weather alerts amongst the many others are right on.
Great App👍🏼 5/5
Good information about your town specifically and surrounding ones as well.
Love the local news 4/5
Great local news! It’s nice to see local/neighborhood news on the Internet. I hate watching it on TV — terrible. The only criticism I have is the “neighbors” who post the same thing over and over (e.g., photography of aging in NYC). However, the benefit with the app is that they are identified as “neighbors,” distinguished from the reg folk. Overall, the app is very helpful. I’ve received notifications about gas line maintenance when my super has not.
The Patch is Great! 5/5
Love the Patch, more news than you get from a newspaper!
Good way to get local news early
Love it 5/5
Great for local news, up dates...
Love getting local updates 5/5
Living so close to a big city like Chicago, most of the news coverage is about Chicago and Cook County. The Patch gives me that local coverage we don’t see anywhere else.
Good news! 5/5
Seems to have everything I need to know.
Local news, on time, fairly accurate. 5/5
Good local news. The information that impacts everyone.
Up To The Minute 5/5
I think Patch is a great App for getting local up to the minute news. You see it here before anywhere else.
Asks for Hometown, then freezes. iOS 12.1.1 1/5
Frustrating and worthless.
Nice, helpful app for local events & weather. 5/5
Weather coverage,?in particular, is very useful.
Great local news app! 5/5
I just love this app! It’s keeps me up to date with al the news that’s going on here locally. Keep up the good work people!!!
Okay app 3/5
By cool jude
I like getting the local news but the design of the app leaves something to be de desired. Not a user friendly app or pleasant to look at.
Very informative 5/5
By Still scratching
I’m not a fan of writing reviews but I do enjoy the patch keeps me in tune with my neighborhood and the latest North Hills news Thank you 😊
Great for local news 5/5
I love this app because it gives you local news as it is happening. Sometimes you get news stories that don't make it to the daily news. Keep up the great work.
Solid news at my fingertips !
Patch Review 5/5
I enjoy reading the news and housing reports on Patch. Born and raised in Baltimore and now living in Florida, I like to keep up on what’s going on at home. You will find more news here than tv or the Sun and you’ll get it faster. I hate writing reviews, but, Patch is a medium worthy of a good review. 😎
Local needs and events 5/5
Love Patch for all the local news and events it lets me be more aware of my surrondings
Not for small towns 1/5
By weedy fields
Can’t find my 100,000+ town.
Happy for timely accurate and usefull news
Not current or in date order 1/5
Ive had this app for a few years and never really use it, maybe im using this app wrong. But i have 4 local towns added as favorites. And theres no sections or organization. Its also in no date order. Nothing current. Just inundated with local houses for sale, pet adoption and shops. I want to see important things like the attempted armed breakin that happened early this morning a few blocks away that i heard about from my doorbell app. I wanted more details, ANY details, and nothing. Id like actual news, not a new house.
By Gidgie 1
This is a wonderful app. Every morning it gives me updates on news, for my area and others I want to know about. We had a 911 issue happen a few miles away, serious issue, and PATCH had updates up on this app in minutes. Well thought out. Thanks!
Tired of the pop up adds for free trials 1/5
Nothing is free . Starting to wonder if this site is not a scam. Watch the news . They need to be more careful of the advisers. Because if this becomes the norm, I will delete it!!!!!!!!
Love it ! 5/5
It keeps me informed of my local surroundings- traffic updates, events, many more.. I actively use Patch !
Good app but 3/5
Interface could be improved. It’s confusing to navigate locate all articles in this app.
Why you should download the app 5/5
Very local news available long before the other usual sources report. Well written and with accompanying photos. See what’s happening in your neighborhood. Reported without bias and easy to access on your device
Fast update informative news 5/5
It’s fast updated informative news quick and easy. Thanks Kindly...
EXcellent NEWS from all over the Pgh area 5/5
I’m new to the Pittsburgh Patch and live in Jefferson Hills area. I tried a few from the South Hills area and deleted the Apps, not living in those areas, the information wasn’t relevant to me.
I’m a member of the Carnegie Museum and I do go into Pittsburgh frequently and I like news of Pittsburgh.
The Pittsburgh Patch seems to cover a wide range of information....very satisfied with the content. As far as I’m concerned it’s an excellent hidden news source.
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.
