    I like the ease of seeing the important news nationally and all over the world, including politics, entertainment, sports. And without the negativity of tv news. The only reason I didn’t give The Skimm 5 stars is because I see some liberal tendencies in the reporting. I prefer non-biased news, just the facts.
  • Stories Are Repeated

    With all the news out there I don’t want o see stories repeated. Glad it was a free trial.
  • Skimm - my news feed of choice!

    By dnewsskimm
    I love quick wit and satire in my news! This is a great way to get a skimm of top news and decide if I have the energy or interest in pursuing the “full story”.

    Efficient, concise, informative! Wish they could put out more skimms a bit faster.
  • Best News Aggregator EVER

    By CVS_Artist
    I’m bad at keeping up to date with the news, but this is wonderful because it provides backstory in short tidbits and links for further reading - all in one seamless condensed and interesting weekday form! Best news site I’ve come across in a LONG time..
  • Skimm is keeping me prisoner

    Let me unsubscribe and stop charging me every month for the love of God
  • I’ll stick to NPR for now

    By iamjosharpe
    Not a diverse choice of stories and too liberal and opinionated. It’s a nice idea though.
  • Subscription based

    By anonymous1418
    Can’t use app until you pay for a subscription. Don’t understand why it’s free online but not in the app. Kind of deceptive considering the app is advertised at free but USING the app is not? Many fake reviews. Honestly not worth the download
