@Sheri...the Patch Places for Android app is not the same software as the Patch for i-Phone. Patch Places for Android is designed to search for local businesses in the Patch area you select with not much more functionality than that. Since I don't have an i-Phone I can't speak to all of the differences, but it appears the Patch for i-Phone app has more features to it (i.e. the ability to comment on articles).

That is correct, Dennis. The Android version is different from the iPhone.

Love the app and have had it for awhile. The only wish I would have is that you could tweet from the app itself. I use Facebook but not nearly as much as Twitter. Any thought to including Twitter in future updates?
