New App Lets Deatur-Avondale Estates Patch Readers Stay Connected

Patch has launched a new iPhone app to make it easier for you stay in touch with your community when you’re on the go

The Patch app has arrived!

Stay connected to the Decatur and Avondale Estates Patch community when you’re on the go with our new, free iPhone app. (The Android version is coming soon, we promise.)


Here are some of the cool things you’ll be able to do with the nifty new Patch app:

  • Upload your photos to Patch stories and business listings
  • Comment on stories
  • Share your favorite Patch articles and business listings with your friends on Facebook and by email
  • Save events from your local Patch website to your personal iPhone calendar
  • Save articles and other content from your local Patch site to read later when you are (gasp) offline and out of cell phone range

And, of course, you’ll be able to keep up on all the latest news and events for your local community.

Check out the app at the iPhone app store. And if you have suggestions for making it even better, please let us know. (Yes, there’s an app for that!).

Don't have the link - b/c the only way I can figure out how to get it is by searching for it on the iPhone and then downloading it. Sometimes I think I know technology really well and other times ..... !!!!!

It isn't available in the iTunes store yet. It usually takes a few days for the Apple folks to approve new apps. I don't know if they'll inform you once it's approved, or if you'll have to keep checking back. Would you mind letting us know when it is available, please? Thank you, Cyn

I downloaded it to my phone already.

The link that was given didn't work for me. I got a message that said "Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to adserver.adtechus.com" . Searching didn't work because there was nothing about Decatur or Avondale Estates in the app's description, and there were too many results when I just searched on "patch." However, http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/patch/id430049632?mt=8 is a working link to the app in the iTunes Store, in case anyone else has the same problem. I look forward to using the app! Thanks!

I just downloaded this from my phone (app store on my iPhone) and it was simple. Woo Hoo!
