patch

Roughly four years ago, AOL bought a little company called Patch that focuses on local community news. More specifically, "everything you need to know about your town, from local government to school news to what to do with your family this weekend" according to Patch's homepage. Unfortunately it's not available in all areas (or even all states) so there are probably many users who haven't heard of the service (myself included).

Those who have, however, will be happy to know that there's now an official Android app. According to the Play Store listing, the app "delivers a beautiful browsing experience to Android users, with an emphasis on simplicity." Sound like something you'd be interested in? Check out Patch's coverage areas here – if you're in the loop, you'll find the app at the widget below. Enjoy.

    Too bad they just killed it today by getting rid of the local editors.
