Great news app

Enjoyable reading with a female twist.

Love your wit

At 70, I have extra time to pay attention to international affairs. You explain and comment on what’s happening and add a ‘snarchy’ attitude I love! Keep up the terrific reporting and explaining. Wish you had an advisory board I could join- what a fun experience that would be!

I unsubscribed from the Skimm several months ago. I’m still getting billed via Apple Pay. Do not subscribe. You will never get out of this infinity loop.

Informative... but annoying

I truly like the Skimm because it’s informative on the basics of goings-on around the globe. It can be annoying for a few reasons, though. I feel like it can come across as pretty biased at times. A lot of the trendy verbiage used (another reason I find it pretty annoying) seems to show negativity and bias towards certain things. Another reason (albeit very picky) is that the girl on the Skimm Notes, or whichever one is the daily recording that comes out, cannot pronounce words correctly.

My favorite news source!

The Skimm is well written (and with a sense of humor), easy to understand with excellent links to further information.

Honest news

This is the only place I feel I can get daily news breakdown with no political bias. Since reading it, my knowledge on current and past events has sky rocketed.

Best thing since sliced bread

Honestly the skim filled a void I did not know that I had. Love everything about it from the Couch to the background information to the daily Skimm which covers everything I need to know for the day and keeps me on top so I don’t look crazy when I talk to the business world. Love that so much is Audio. Thank you.

Best $3 I spend monthly!

This app is amazing! Keeps me updated and in the loop with out cutting into my busy schedule. The audio clips are great for your commute or just to sit back with a little easy listening!

Used to love it, but no longer

They’ve started putting clever in front of accuracy. Not interested in wading through that stuff to get to the news, even in short. This is too bad, in that I used to really like this
