It’s constantly updating to make sure you never miss important events in politics, sports, entertainment, and more. READS Every Friday we recommend a new book that you won’t be able to put down and every day we recommend a new, 5 min Read to get into. DOWNTIME Consider your downtime handled. And smarter.

  • News with a spark

    By vindi kaur
    Am addicted to skimm. Great job all skimm staff Bravo
  • Let down

    By Miker141
    I was excited to be kept up to date but was tricked into downloading the app to find out it wasn’t free. Only a month is. Then you pay. I can read all of this online. I’m not paying for it.
  • Need to Knows - Uninterrupted

    By Suffering Selfie
    As a subscriber to the Skimm for over a year, I couldn’t be happier with the progress made and performance of this app. I turned to the Skimm during the election to get the news I *needed*, not the news I *wanted*. I started out with the Daily Skimm to my inbox and was able to get the day’s news uninterrupted by partisan bias and straight to the point. That captured my attention and I quickly became a subscriber. It’s a little bit of entertainment, sports, pop culture, and world news. I love the calendar subscriptions and I always feel in the know. Keep up the good work!
  • I'll change my review when it's free

    By FhfkvkgFjv
    I can literally get all this info for free with tiny cards and a million other apps. Such a rip off
  • Misleading.

    By Mhu1023
    Articles are US-centric and tonally biased although it claims to be non-partisan. Guess it’s target audience are younger audiences based on the hosts rhetoric. Just listened to the article on Xi Jinping hoping a professional summary that of the likes of History Channel or Bloomberg...this was not it.
  • Liberal views

    By Patienttoapoint
    I like the idea of an abbreviated version of what is going on and was paying for it. It has become more and more liberal. I have a different viewpoint, and this is where we part ways.
  • Best News App for Busy People

    By Jmsan5
    This app is single-handedly keeping me up-to-date with current events every week. Everything is concise, informative, and easy-to-follow. My favorite is their Daily Skimm, which summarizes all the major news stories into one quick read. Their Skimm Notes, Skimm Reads, and Skimm Calendar are a nice bonus. This subscription is worth every cent. Highly recommend.
  • Love the idea...but...

    By BlairDB
    I really love the idea, but perhaps a one time fee would be better? Most people aren't a fan of this new trend where apps say they're free in the download store and then hit you with "to do this you must pay a subscription fee!" If I want to BUY an app I'll buy it. I'd probably pay a one time fee to download this app. But I won't pay monthly to use a calendar (though I do love the idea of having political events and such synced to my calendar for me), listen to news podcasts that I can listen to for free else where, or to have someone recommend what I should read and watch (again, love the idea and wouldn't mind suggestions at all, but my friends do that for free). Like I said, it's a nice idea, and I would definitely use it if it were just a one time fee, but otherwise I'm gonna have to pass and stick to getting your free news emails.
  • Not worth it

    By Gigi meme cc
    Not worth it Please cancel, second request
  • Love the newsletter, the app needs help

    By Fester222
    When I tried to begin a monthly subscription, it never connected to the App Store. Same on my iPad. The help desk didn’t help me. See ya!
