theSkimm App gives you all the news and information you need to know to start your day. Your first month is free and after that it’s less than a cup of coffee a month. We’re making it easier for you to live a smarter life, and there’s a lot that comes with that… DAILY NEWS Every weekday, you get the news you need to know to start your day. All nonpartisan. All in one place. All in 5 mins or less. AUDIO SERIES Want more? Our audio podcast breaks down important, relevant topics for you to listen to on the go in 10 minutes or less. CALENDAR INTEGRATION That’s right. Our calendar syncs directly with yours -- Apple or Google, you choose -- to make sure you always know what’s coming up and can plan ahead. 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. Every Friday we give you what to watch, listen to, download, and read over the weekend. ------- In-app purchase subscription required.

  • Not worth it

    Not worth it Please cancel, second request
  • Love the newsletter, the app needs help

    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!
  • Just The Facts

    By WaylandC
    Skimm does a better job than most at staying neutral politically and just reporting the facts.
  • Ok but

    By Vans1493
    Why is everything written like it’s directed at women? Also, sometimes the forced jokes get old and I just want objective news. And no weekend updates?? Why is this a subscription when so much is bound to fly under the radar? Suggestion: focus more on information and less on entertainment.
  • What a way to start the morning

    By nkingp
    I love being informed. This is a great way to learn about current events written in a light refreshing way.
  • Keeps me up to date in a short amount of time

    By Bnniemcgp
    The Skimm is a great service. I read it everyday. Keeps me up to date on leading news and pop culture. It's written well with links to longer news stories if you want to get more information on a certain story.
  • Best App

    By AndreaPink
    I’m in love with this app 🙏🏽
  • Pay for news?

    By ShazzzzzzzzzAM
    Like the idea but news is everywhere. Yours is special the way you set it up, yes. But I can’t bring myself to pay monthly.
  • Like cancer for your phone

    By Thadueces22
    This is the worst app. I thought it would be something I could use in the mornings during my commute to catch up on world news or current events but nope. It's more of a summary of what happened on Vanderpump Rules and the other garbage on Bravo! and E! Network. Seriously save your money and buy an newspaper once in a blue moon. You'll be better off.
  • Subscription fee

    There are plenty of services related to financial news that are completely free. This is gonna be a no from me dog. Also, seems very leftist in the way articles are Wut? Who tf uses CNN as a reputable source?
