App too slow - web better 1/5
I installed the app looking for more convenient access. It does not deliver. The page opens blank and takes a long time to load content. For this I might as well look at the page on the web. The integrations with the home screen are terrible. The content cuts can’t make anything that says. Definitively not os13 ready. Lastly, and this has nothing to do with the app - content is lacking. Not much local things listed - just general news available everywhere else.
Offline interruption 1/5
It appears that while reading an article, this app suddenly gives you a green screen with “No Connection” while reading an article and quickly reverts back when connection is established again.
As a developer myself, I’d NEVER allow this to happen on any of my apps. This should have been cached locally and only shown to the user if the user toggled back to the tableview of data while then, trying to access another article that is yet to be fetched.
Terrible development team at Patch. Disappointed!
Informative local reference 5/5
I like reading Patch, if you can find your community... I live in two different neighborhood One in Culver City, Ca and Kona Hawaii, I can get it for Culver City but not Kona ... They do have it for Oahu different island
and maybe Kona is too rural ..
Very bad nothing more. Waist of time.
Great for Local News Updates 5/5
Surprisingly good app that provides latest local news and updates. Keeping it!
My City/Town isn’t available yet 2/5
By Apple_App Gamer
My City/Town isn’t available yet. I hope Patch can add Bakersfield, California
Great for good local news 5/5
Never seen a local news app before. Love knowing what’s going on in Shoreline. Looking forward to contributing.

I need all the help I can get!!
Could definitely be better for sure. 4/5
By K&E Scheibel
This app is “ok”. I think it could be so much better though. It’s kin of lacking. It should list every section in the main menu but it does not. Instead you have to look around for the different sections. All sections should be listed right there when you open the app. 👎
Great app 5/5
Great app that gets you to the actually without a fuss
Everything I need and more 5/5
I knew Patch is like a better news app but it makes it better how it also has a weather section.
Brody’s poam 5/5
By My work studio
This app was inspired me in the time of this week because it’s quality very cool and charming
A lot of old, outdated news. 2/5
Pretty useless if you live in a small town.
Better news than our local paper! 5/5
The Patch has provided better news over the past few years than our local newspaper. I’m super stoked to have the app!
Accurate information 5/5
Great app that covers my area.Love my alerts, not bothersome at all.
Great, if Patch covers your area 5/5
Easy and intuitive interface. Does NOT spam with too many alerts - only ‘high-interest’ news events/stories pop-up with an alert (of you enable alerts).
Patch, strangely enough, is not available for my town/county. However every other town/county surrounding mine is covered - so I still get worth-while info.
5 stars, because I suspect my town/county is just not worthy of Patch - not holding this against an app. Where can I go to rate government now?
I’m The Know 5/5
Great APP, great information and local mews in your area.
Great local paper 5/5
I have been reading this babe since I was about nine years old this paper is very very very wonderful if you are from the town of Tewksbury or Wilmington I highly suggest that you get this app and pay cheaper for the subscription to be on your phone then it would be for them to deliver to your house
I Like The Patch!! 5/5
The Patch app is Just the ticket for local news and events, Just what we need for Solano County & surrounding communities, events that affect our local community, the greatest thing about the Patch is that it’s not “Fake” News!!
I love this app 5/5
By Will this nickname work?!?!
Great resource for local news.
By Longtime Reader 63
The app is extremely unstable to the point of almost being unusable. It reloads and reloads and reloads during any session making it hard to read anything.
Great local reference/info app. 5/5
By wendy Barbour Barrett
I use this app daily, I fact..more than once, daily.
I’m not the”review type”.
I’m more the Talk to my friends, family. Like I’m telling them about something that will enhance their life, save time, or at least reference, the LOCAL 411!!!!
The rapid delivery Of local newsworthy information, directly relevant to my life! And my comfort. Not to mention more times than NOT, MY safety, as well as my loved ones
Way to go with this local info app
Very Good. Very Timely 5/5
Recently moved to LI, this app has definitely helped keep me aware on current events and also local things to do. I like it
App freezes 2/5
I love the Patch for local news. I thought I’d download the app for easier reading than going through my email updates. The app constantly freezes on me and some content won’t download all. I had hoped this would make articles easier to read. Nope.
Does not include 2nd largest city in state 1/5
Major fail to not include the second largest city by population in the state, Augusta, GA, which has a large population city across the river, North Augusta,SC. Other apps do notice we are here. I’ll stick with them until you do.
Love to hear about the latest news! Keeps me updated
A keeper 4/5
The Patch is great!
Keeps me in touch 4/5
I used to receive email notifications, and there were a lot. So i downloaded the app but the app doesn’t seem to keep up with all of the notifications, but I still enjoy it for local news.
Search for articles. 4/5
Can’t seem to find a search tool. Kinda necessary for news apps
The Patch 5/5
stays on point.
Outstanding app 💪 5/5
Bravo Patch! We’re new to Murrieta, looking to buy a home. You give me all I need to start my day & the alerts are super helpful!
You guys rock my world 🤗💕
Local news 5/5
Great source for local news!
A Quick Source Of Advertisements & Useless Info 1/5
By America's App Advisor
Information overload is one thing Patch is not.
Among the top local stories in my area was breaking news that a small, local beverage company would be offering not just one, but two (2) new flavors. Wow.
And Advertisements, thinly disguised as Editorial opinions, abound amongst other useless, local drivel.
If you seek useful, relevant local news and information, I suggest you look elsewhere.
Great App 5/5
Easy to use and updated regularly....
Incredibly useful and resourceful 5/5
I have been using this app for quite some time now and I find that it is quite amazing. It is great for reading local news that normally is quite important. I look at it every day to read local news and I prefer it more than ANY other news app. I also love how you can just search for a place that you want to read news about instead of scrolling all the way down just to read one story like you do on other apps. Patch is an incredibly useful and resourceful app.
By Margaret Gaudin
Always good information right at my fingertips love the app 👍🏾👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽✅
Best app ever 5/5
Best app ever
By Fernando Pecol
This is the only app or news that you never hesitate to read and get inform.. seriously, honestly, up to the news with out B ...... my rating 100% over 100
This is a great way to read the news. Usually the newspaper does not have news that does not relate to Tampa. This is a very good website to keep up with happenings in Pasco County. Thank you.
Biased News 1/5
Stories published by their local “reporters” show clear bias and are not focused on facts. Other than that it is a fine app.
Great summary of local news and happenings 5/5
My go to app for local
Love this app 5/5
By MA transplant
The local news stations hardly ever cover stories that happen in the suburbs but with this app I can stay up to date on all of the stories that are applicable to my daily life. I love that I can get news, weather and all stories in one app. Thanks Patch!
Great news app 5/5
I absolutely love this app! It is easy and convenient to have all the local news right in one app.
Great app 5/5

I do t understand, but no price is
Listed, but when I went to
Download it, it said my acct. was charged? Has anyone else been charged to
Download and how much? I wasn’t expecting this????
Using outdated info. 1/5
First thing app asks for is a zip code. I have had the same zip code for 10+ years, 33812. Check how you validate cities/zip.
Pretty good source for local news & ads 4/5
Pretty good source for local news & ads. And it’s free. 😉
Love New Jersey 5/5
I used to live in New Milford for over twenty years, my children went to school there I worked there , love keeping in touch with the area , the patch has helped me , love it , thank you Patch!
Horrible App 1/5
The information never changes. Yet, I’m hopeful
