  • This app is worth the money

    It’s cheap and amazing. It’s a great way to get news that’s not left leaning or right leaning, just the facts. If you want to stay informed it’s the perfect way to do that. They offer a lot (daily read, the daily skimm, podcasts, colander of events, etc...) and the best part is that if you can’t afford to pay for it you can just sign up for the emails which I did for a few months and it was good, of course the app is better though. Also, with the app you can now sign up for text questions so they send you a topic each week and you can ask questions and they will answer them. I just signed up for it and can’t wait to ask about the next topic.

    I use the Skimm app almost daily. I like the clean look and links better in the app than in the email. I also like the additional content, such as the 5-minute reads. One suggestion is for the weekend content to be able to be accessed at a later date. Sometimes a show or book will be recommended and I can’t find it later.

    Keeps me up-to-date in a short amount of time. Everything is concise, informative, and easy-to-follow. Worth every cent. Highly recommend.

    The skim is a good read, sometimes. It is definitely geared towards 20 something-year-old‘s. I subscribed over a year ago, rarely read it bc I get my news from other sources. I frankly do not understand the wording often in this newsletter. I do not use or want the calendar either. I have tried unsuccessfully to cancel! HELP! How can I stop them from billing my iphone account! If I cancel the card they just bill the card I have for itunes. I feel like Im being robbed!! Please assist🙏🙏🙏

    Love the Skimm, comes to my email every morning keeping me aware of everything major (and entertaining) going on in the US and around the world. It’s written in a light, easy to understand and dry humorous tone that really suits me.
  • Love the app, no notifications?

    Not getting any notifications on a brand new iPhone XS and the latest version of the app. Installed and reinstalled. What’s going on? Notifications don’t seem to be working 🤷🏽‍♂️ fix please.

    I can not recommend the Skimm enough. It is a fair and balanced news source that skips over all the nonsense and gets right down to the relevant issues. The Skimm app allows me to down load various calendars of things I am interested in and don’t want to miss. They also conduct interesting, thought provoking interviews. There is nothing not to love about this app.
  • One sided & biased

    You don’t get a balanced viewpoint from this site. Having the new read for you leaves the readers revealing their opinion. Not the balance of it. The “News & News” app does a much better job. You’ll have to read though.
