    Well worth it! My go to news!

    Hello, I just downloaded this app the other day and I have to say I’m really loving it. I’m a 27 year old stay at home mom and I can’t always have the news on or sit on my phone and read up on world affairs/daily news. This is one of the best apps I’ve ever come across. It covers everything and I love that it explains what certain things are like the (Nuclear deal) for example. That is my favorite part of the app. Since I tend to be out of the loop, I sometimes don’t know what things are about. I’m normally a Twitter user but this app goes far beyond because it takes the time to cover everything, stick with key points and explain what things are. I’m finding myself clicking on this app more so than Twitter now! I have no issues paying for this service whatsoever. Thank you to the creators of this app. I can tell a lot of love went into it and hard work on the daily. 5 stars from me!

    Support quality and convenient journalism

    I’ve been subscribed to their emails for a while so now I battled with whether or not I wanted to subscribe for the app. The calendar and the little podcast snipers are fun but that’s pretty much all that’s extra on top of what you get in an email. They’re fun but I couldn’t decide if they were worth 3 dollars. Then I started to think about it as if the emails weren’t free. Each daily skimm would cost about 10 cents with the subscription, then with everything else thrown in as well I definitely think that’s worth it! It’s hard paying for something you can get for free, but this service has become something I depend on. It’s punny and informative and something I want to stick around so when I take that all into account, 3 dollars a month is a steal. Hooray for quality and convenient journalism!

    Great App, Even Better Company

    I LOVE theSkimm! They provide relevant news/stories in a way that's no bs and enjoyable to read. It makes me happy to see a business created and run by women, especially one that's doing so well. I've been subscribed to their email and have been following theSkimm on social media for a while and am excited to finally check out the app! I just have to say... What a bunch of grumps in the reviews!! There's absolutely nothing wrong with the company asking for $2.99 after a free month trial. The emails are free and while they don't offer as much as the app, they're a perfectly fine resource. It baffles me that people spend their time writing a review about not wanting to pay a few dollars a month to support an awesome company. If you don't like it, don't pay for it! Go Skimm and keep doing what you're doing!!

    A must-have app!

    Informative, funny and valuable. This is THE news app for busy people who want to know what's going on in the world but don't want to spend an hour reading news everyday. The content is the perfect length; useful, informative with links to further information at credible news sources. The humor and pop-culture references make it even more enjoyable! I used to get the daily email and was so happy the day they released their app. It's one of my favorite parts of my morning. And the calendar is amazing. It helps me stay informed on events going on in the world, so even if I'm not interested in them I have the relevant knowledge to engage in conversations with others. I love the SkimmReads and digging the new audio Skimms! Skimm HQ just keeps making it better. 5 stars. It's a home screen use-every-day app. So worth it!

    Easy to digest news for the busy professional

    I love that this app provides me a layman’s terms version of what’s happening in the news, politics, media, etc. I don’t have to try to research more information online unless I’m really interested in a specific topic. I work at least 40 hours per week - sometimes 60. So listening to the “notes” is helpful for me on my way to work. If you are extremely knowledgeable on politics, geography, history, and just generally what’s going on in the news then this isn’t the app for you. It’s for someone who barely has time to work, eat, sleep let alone know what’s going on. OR just a more digestible factual explanation of trending topics. Highly recommend and worth the small monthly fee!!
