The Patch Lets Me Know Every Big or Little Thing Happening In My Neighborhood and Those Around Me
New Update GREAT 5/5
This is way better than ever. I find it extremely useful.
6/5 for sure!! 5/5
I neverrrrrwrite reviews but this App is worth it definitely. I am new to the area so I don’t know the ways of listening/getting nearby news here in America. This app makes it super easy for me to know the 410. Question - Does this app apply for Australian news too?
Since my last review, Patch has fixed the tech issues. Its much more user friendly now 👍
I get all my local news from here. Love it!!
App won't work! 1/5
I have installed and uninstalled many times and every time I cannot get past "Get Started". Tapping the Get Started button does absolutely nothing. Please fix this bug!!
Great App 5/5
I really like this App. It is so informative. I like reading about the local news.
Filters don’t work 2/5
The appeal of Patch is supposed to be that it’s “local” news, stories of interest in our home town. Why then, with local filters set, do I get stories from across town and even into neighboring counties?
It’s not just local...it’s your neighborhood 5/5
This takes you back to the kind of news you’d get from your local newspaper. The cover local parades and stuff you won’t see on locals TV.
Nice for local news 4/5
Good for finding local going one.
Up-to-the-minute Updates are Super Appreciated! 5/5
By Mrs. Sheridan
I love getting real time updates on what’s happening in my neighborhood, and beyond. I’m also a member of Next Door. Sometimes it’s more rumor than facts. So I feel like The Patch is a little more tied in to police reports and local law enforcement.
Enjoying App! 5/5
I’ve enjoyed having the notifications. I know more about what’s happening now. Keep up the good work!
Great app! 5/5
Does everything I need it to. Tells me what's going on in my local community, and keeps me up to date. Love this app!
Too much click-bait 1/5
1. I get way too many alerts every day that are nowhere near my selected town. I want local events and news, not extra incidents that end up being far from me. You never know where the event or incident was until you’ve clicked several times and then find out you wasted your time about an incident at a mall two hours away.
2. Even when you finally get past the headline, the name of the location is buried deep in the article.
I’m told that all of this must be bait so they register more clicks on their website.
3. Updates to news lag behind other news outlets.
They move out I move in. 5/5
Thank you for the useful news and App. I am moving to Novato and it is great to know what is currently happening in my new home town. Insightful and well written.

I depend on the patch for local news.
A trusted site and terrific app.
Great app for local news 5/5
This app keeps me informed about my town and surrounding neighborhoods in real time. I was having issues with the app at one point. They communicated with me very quickly to try to fix it.
Like the local New & Customer service 5/5
Love the local news aspects. Also, I made a suggestion to via their support email and voila, they listed to the suggestion and a week later made an update with the new feature (landscape mode). Great service.
Great coverage 5/5
Great local coverage I otherwise would have missed. Great job during the north weymouth floods
Patch is awesome! 5/5
The Patch app is very helpful because you can see the local news from almost anywhere in the USA and sometimes further!
I look at it almost every morning. And get almost all of my news!
I think that it is the BEST news app ever. I also think it is the most helpful. You can also read stuff that’s not exactly news.
Like how to make your own halloween costume or how to make whatever according to the time of the year. You can also see pictures and videos. So I think that patch should be a 100 out of 5. It is phenomenal,awesome,amazing,great and almost perfect!
I think it is one of the best apps in the whole universe!
Great for local happenings 5/5
It is so hard to find out what’s happening locally. This app makes it easier to find - not just news, but even things like meetups and local sports activities.
Patch review 3/5
By Aztec 46
Real News 5/5
There is one email I don’t mind seeing in my inbox all the time and that’s the Patch. The news they report is genuine and you can tell right away whomever wrote it took the time to check facts, etc. Feels like a real journalism throwback. Just found out they have an app (I am probably super late to the party) but excited none the less. Solid local news.
Awesome news! just sometimes a little too much repetitive news other than that I love it’ let’s me know what’s going on around town. Keep up the good work...
Patch is the closest thing to getting TV or local radio news.
Awesome app 5/5
Very up to date and constantly edits news stories with any new updates.
Great app! 5/5
By James O. Clark
This is the first time that I have ever written a review. Patch keeps me informed about my former neighborhood. I moved from Wilmette to Florida in 1979 but I still miss my old home. It’s so nice to keep up to date thanks to Patch!
I like it and it’s useful but..., 4/5
By Delicious 99
I’m on an iPhone 6 and always have to start over when I start the app.
Hope it gets fixed soon!
Quick useful app, exactly what the doctor ordered. 4/5
Love keeping up to date with my homeys...and my new town’s news just as easily. All this is just a finger click away!
By JESUS 25
This is really a mini Bergen Record. I enjoy very much. Now that I have this app. I am deleting north jersey. Keep up the great work.
Love it! 5/5
What a handy way to keep on top of local news, I’m enjoying getting in depth coverage on a wide variety of local stories that I otherwise would have missed. This app is keeping me well informed.
Best source of local news 5/5
Patch provides quick access to local news.
Local news, as it should be 5/5
Patch! What a wonderful source of valuable local information! It fulfills a critical need in our lives - - knowing what is going on around us. Focused, critical information at your fingertips. Ellie
There are Apps and there is Patch👍🏾 5/5
By The great astronomer
Thank you for making local events and news easily available. 🙌🏾
Best nav app! 4/5
Great nav app incl traffic conditions, road hazards and police notifications. Indispensable really. Can be a little ambitious with ETA estimates but other features are must have.
Patch app 5/5
By terry bros / danny boy
Living in norwitch n.y it’s nice to have news from home been nearly fifteen years since I’ve been there me thinks it’s time for a road trip!!!!
Very useful 5/5
I enjoy this app. It keeps me up to date with news in my area as I rarely watch local news on cable.
Terrible journalism 1/5
While the world is stunned by real major events, patch reports on geese attacks.
Seriously... Korean peach talks are occurring and this app is giving me two different articles about why geese attack!
To those looking at the review. Move along to another app.
Good local news app 4/5
By Tano and Sandra
I just wish some stories had more information, but overall I like the app, I read my local news every day!
Great App for Local news 5/5
The Patch app is great for local news, you can find out about your community (news and events), items not reported anywhere else
Fast local news 5/5
Often, I see an item in the Patch before it appears elsewhere.
My Wish 4/5
Wish I could get news about onlytowns I am interested in
Toomuch extraneous stuff
Good idea 5/5
By Kane dawg
This is where I get my daily local news
If you want to know anything this app is great for you. Keeps you up-to-date on breaking news.
Great for new to community 5/5
We just moved to our community from 2 hours away. Patch is helping us get to know our new community.
Awesome app and great news organization. Patch MN is where I get all my local news.
By Freaknik = awesome
Every time an interesting news banner appears that I want to see on the Patch app I have to completely log in from the beginning All over again.
The info itself is enticing but not worth the hassle.
Best travel app 5/5
I love this app Because I travel to Texas a lot and I can use this app for all local news in Dallas, Austin, San Antonio-it’s great to read what is happening in Fairfax and the areas I am visiting
Accurate facts 5/5
By The Monitor
Current local events without unnecessary embellishments.
This app is awful. Every time i try to go into the app I have to choose my towns all over again. This is so annoying since I follow several neighboring towns. So essentially every time i open the app I have to use it as a completely new app. Really annoying. Deleted.
