Holidays Came With a New Mobile Device? Take Patch With You

Patch goes where you go with mobile apps for iPhone and Android phones.


Were you lucky enough to get a mobile device this holiday season? Let's put it to work learning about your community. 

Patch has apps for iPhones and Android phones, and also makes it easy for you to upload photos, news and comments from anywhere. Here's a look at a few ways you can connect with Patch through your mobile device. 

Patch for iPhone 

Patch for iPhone keeps customers connected to the latest news, weather, local business listings and current events happening in their neighborhood. Patch’s app will keep them engaged and mobile by delivering 24/7 local community coverage. 

The Patch app's useful features include:

  • A quick rundown of the most relevant Patch news and local blog posts (and it looks great on your mobile screen if we do say so ourselves.)
  • Up-to-date weather and forecasts.
  • Business listings in your community right at your fingertips. (No more fumbling to find the number for the new takeout place!)
  • Intriguing events that are happening right near you.
  • Easy access to voice your opinion on stories or upload photos via Facebook or email.

Plus, you can save anything from favorite articles to business listings direct to the iPhone for easy offline access.
