Customer Reviews

I like Patch, but...

I like the Patch app, but it's not the most intuitive. It should launch by default to my local Patch. I don't know why I have to save my area to favorites and select it every time I launch the app. Even then - I repeatedly save my area to favorites only to find later its disappeared and I have to save it again.

Hopefully these things are simple fixes that'll come around in the next update.

Rarely has local news

Patch went from a good source of local news, to mostly link bait, to an app that refuses to remember your settings so it presents you with "national" news each time - and then each time you are supposed to change it to your local news. It's not worth the frustration any more, so it's time to remove this app.

Don't waste you time

Totally useless now! It's filled with so many stupid ads and pointless information from around the web it's hard to find what your looking in this mess of an app. It use to be clean and streamline and easy to read.
