  • Timely information 5/5

    By Me-be-old

  • Improvement 5/5

    By Patchreader
    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 Most things are out of date or for other locations.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.

  • Great with breaking local events! 5/5

    By DWmom4
    I really appreciate how timely the information provided by the Patch is.
  • Mostly useless and lacking detail 2/5

    By Hockeyblade
    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.
  • Fantastic app! 5/5

    By Circa68
    I’m new to the area and have found this app to be very useful. Thanks so much for creating it!

    By Pemelaj
    I haven’t had this app long but already love it !! I wake up and glance at my phone and immediately learn about anything important that has happened where I live. I can get just a quick summary, or open it and read the whole story .... loving it!!
  • Best source of local news 5/5

    By eastoneddie
    Patch provides quick access to local news. Outshines our local paper for coverage and alerts. Don’t mind the clickbait and ads in order to get free solid local and regional news.
  • Home owner 4/5

    By Ez2 getm58
    I really like Patch. It really keeps me informed on going on in my selected areas. It's not loaded with annoying. Ads and unnecessary junk that I don't need....Well developed..I would give it a 5 Star rating if the Page wouldn't take off automacally back to the top,while trying to read..
  • Where's my town? 1/5

    By I❤️libraries

  • Great local app 5/5

    By Kelykel1
    I like that patch because it brings local news that is reported when it happens. It’s great for weather and traffic too. Keeps you up to date. I also like the alerts. Thank you Patch!!
  • Great local news app! 5/5

    By Evvolfer
    It is stupid how difficult it is to get local news updates without having a GD twitter account... (even with having one there so so much spam and so many adds you can’t even find the correct information). This app is exactly what I’ve been looking for! Thank you Patch!!! You are wonderful!
  • News 5/5

  • They are ON IT! 5/5

    By blownlightning
    This app is so helpful for keeping up with local news in other places. Anything going on, the Patch people are there to tell you about it. I just love it!
  • Great Service 5/5

    By LVGrannie
    I left Brooklyn 8 years ago for Las Vegas and thanks to The Patch I’m able to keep up with Brooklyn news. Keep up the great work
  • Patch app delivers 4/5

    By G G 123
    Always in need of neighborhood happenings before national or world news
  • Has become my go to 5/5

    By 10/4
    I don’t usually go past the stars rating but I feel strongly about this app. I’m very impressed by the amount of “local” information I can access using Patch. I have access to news, activities and all things that influence my area. It’s precise to my location in one click and easy to read. Im spreading the word and hope more find and use this worthy app. Keep up the good work Patch staff!
  • LsmH 5/5

    By sixbros
    I like being able to get local news and checking on the weather and the alerts that are sent.
  • Local news 5/5

    By jerrykap
    Local news is increasingly important to all. Patch is an excellent service to all who live in this area
  • Great App!!! 5/5

    By YsuberJr
    Great way to keep track of your local news!!!
  • Excellent app 3/5

    By riversidegal42
    I wasn’t sure what to expect with a local news app but this one keeps me up to date on important and breaking news that is close to home.
  • Great Local News 5/5

    By Spellito
    I love having local news at my fingertips.
  • Addictive 5/5

    By mvmkl
    This app is very useful and user friendly. I find I check it too often during the day. Can’t help myself
  • A Great, Quick Source Of Local Information 5/5

    By America's App Advisor
    Information overload is one thing Patch is not ... thankfully. I really enjoy being able to access local information in a VERY timely fashion (in my area it’s lightning fast) because life can turn on a dime. Staying ahead of the curve allows you to adjust when necessary and ultimately this makes life a little easier. Look... ↑ never mind all that ↑ It’s good, I recommend it and that’s enough from me.
  • Updated content is on point 5/5

    By Joesalera11
    Always my go to place for everything news. And I’m not saying that because I’m a patch mayor for Medford ma. Lol
  • I see very little news. 1/5

    By peterz549
    most of what I see is social media and ads. very little news of interest . the news needs to be categorized.
  • In the past, Patch was great! 3/5

    By Salty girl
    I had loved patch in the past. Now, I wanted my Patch in my new area. It's incredibly glitchy and has crashed three times upon attempt 😤
  • Local news score! 5/5

    By laurenmrock
    So happy to finally have local news on my phone! Great app!
  • Nothing Current 2/5

    By CindyLee237
    The most current news report was from 2 months ago. It would only find big towns so I’m sure that’s part of the reason.
  • Pretty good but needs a few tweaks 5/5

    Update: latest edition fixes the photo issue! Great job! ---- Latest version claims to support landscape mode, but it doesn't with an iPhone 5. Would be a welcomed feature. The biggest issue with the app is that you can zoom into any pics. It's very annoying when they show a graph and you can't zoom into to read what it says. Besides these 2 issues, I have found the app to be very informative about my local area and what is happening.
  • Simple layout and easy to use! 4/5

    By Shnnyns
    I like how you can have local news and events. Easy to set up and navigate.
  • Patch 5/5

    By Fontaine Sr
    I think this app keeps the general public informed on a variety of issues.Great app I highly recommended it!
  • One Flaw 3/5

    By Low1921
    This site is not always up-to-date today 7/6/2018 I saw ads fire dates in the past and a lot of reel estate ads!
  • Where’s the local stone mt news? 1/5

    By Uneducated lady
    I’m signs up for several Patch news magazines such as Sandy Springs, Gwinnett, etc and their Patch is up to date with news and a directory that categorizes topics. I find this app useless and will delete.
  • Location 4/5

    I like the Patch app for giving me news about my area I do wish Patch would use you location and give you news on the area you’re in. I live in Alexandria and work in Chantilly so it would be neat if it would update on my route to tell me things that were going on on the parkway, or if I travelled to Atlanta to let me know when I’m there what’s going on.
  • Poor interface 1/5

    By BobD33
    Needs combined view of cities. When you get a Notification and click-it, doesn’t take you to article!
  • Informative and Useful 5/5

    By CherylJ61
    Love this app. It helps me keep up with what’s going on in my town and surrounding areas as well. It is easy to navigate.
