Incredibly useful and accurate!

I normally don't write reviews, but I'd like to see this app get more positive ratings because it's the BEST local news apps I have EVER used! I don't even know where I would go to get the aggregate of local news information Patch provides for as many local areas as you like. Patch let's you add multiple neighborhoods, so you get the latest news for that AREA, which is really where this app shines. From changes in parking rules to local accidents to subway closures to weather-related events, I've never seen a smarter or more sophisticated news app! I live in NYC but also have a place in the south, so I set up Patch for that area, then we had the string of Hurricanes last year, and this was the ONLY app that provided me with crucial updates on my neighborhood conditions, as I was not there during the storms and had no way of knowing the damage to my local area. Things like which roads remained closed, which were recently cleared, where there were downed trees, if bridges were open, local curfews and garbage pickup. These may sound like small things, but you seriously can't get this info from other sources, and it's all organized in ONE PLACE! Patch gives you the stuff big news conglomerates don't care about. If you want more than crime and politics in your news feed, then Patch is the app for you! Thanks, devs!!

Incredibly useful and resourceful

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.

Hope you like setting an app up every day

I signed up for Patch emails for local news updates in the small town I live in. Those emails were clickbaity (open the email, read a teaser, click on “read more,” and get taken to a collection of articles where I have to click yet again on the one I want to read). Taking a reader through that many clicks made it seem like that’s all they were after. So I downloaded the app and went through the town selection, opted in for alerts, clicked “let’s get started,” etc. to finally read some local news. The next time I got an alert from the app, Patch made me go through the entire town selection/set up alerts/click click click process as if I had never set it up before. And this is after clicking on an alert *that the app sent me*. Next day it did the same thing. After a few days of this I deleted it.
