Great until recent “update”

I have a yearly subscription to The Skimm. The latest update hides the Daily Skimm which is the best part of the app. It comes as a free newsletter but I think it should be placed back in the app along the bottom where it formally was located so I don’t have to go to my email to read it. Also I found one link to “read more” required me to sign up or sign in to the NYtimes. The entire reason I subscribe to the Skimm is to save time, not waste it. The app needs to be reconfigured again. Edit 5/27/20: I am increasing my stars to five. The Daily Skimm is now easier to find (I have no idea what happened after the update but things have been resolved)).

Good content but update broke the app

I can no longer read the daily content. The app is broken and displays news for the incorrect day.

Getting lazy!!!

I loved this app and was a paid subscriber, today I changed my mind and canceled. Since covid-19 they have suddenly decided they will no longer have the audio for the daily Skimm available and are moving to a weekly Skimm this. I listen to both of these every day. Yes they were free, but I PAID to support this app so they would continue to offer these services. Now that they are too LAZY to give us news on a DAILY basis, what’s the point? There isn’t much extra content on the app. BRING BACK DAILY AUDIO for BOTH MORNING AND PM. Not Everyone has a job where they sit in front of the computer and get to read the Skimm OR have time to be on there phone. Seriously disappointed you took away your two best features.

Good Info

When I open the Skim I am never disappointed by the amount of news that is covered each day. I’m not a big shopper but I still like to be aware of what’s out there. Keep up the excellent reports as we approach the November elections.

Love the calendar but it doesn’t allow me to sync it with my Mac so I have great content on my iPhone but can’t see it on the computer calendar logged in under the same ID

Great tone, very informative

Love this new source. It tells me what I need to know and almost always makes me laugh.

Patronizing content

This is so embarrassing and awful that content “for women” is so dumbed down.
By FreeRider1569

Best news app

Not only are the news articles relevant and accurate, they’re wildly comical (when appropriate).

Don’t waste your time downloading if you’re not willing to pay $29.99 for a subscription because that’s the only way you can use this “FREE”’s not FREE.
