this app is great, but only works half of the time. there’s either an error or a window saying they’re all still asleep, which would be cute if it wasn’t so frequent. please fix this, i am paying for the service.
I love TheSkimm app, but it doesn’t turn sideways when I turn my iPad to prop it up in its case (landscape mode?). It would be great if you could add that feature. Thanks
Uninstalled app when I saw that Disney is a part owner. They’re trying to force their progressive politics on families and remove parents’ abilities to protect their children.
I’ve been reading theSkimm as one of my go-to news outlets. No news is completely opinion free, but I appreciate that everything is shortened, and to the point. Providing links to recourses they use, and having more in-depth explanations for certain topics that are coming up more often. Out of all the news outlets I’ve used before, theSkimm has definitely become my favorite.
TheSkimm has a link to buy tickets to the CPAC. I feel sick.
Not a review of the actual product/app. The button to indicate I don’t want to be tracked before using the app doesn’t work. The button to change my settings so I can be tracked does work. The only way I was able to get around the broken button was by using a long-press on the app icon to open the lastest skimm, not something I expect every user knows. Happy to change the review to be about the actual product, I just don’t like dark patterns forcing users into allowing you to track them.
Thanks to Alex from theSkimm for a speedy reply with how to resolve this issue. No more audible alerts in the middle of the night. Solution was to toggle off event alerts in theSkimm calendar. Prior review: I’ve been subscribing to this service for a couple years - liked the content. Then the Olympics started and alerts have begun in the middle of the night. I can’t turn on do not disturb on my phone as I’m on call for my job. This app should be timezone aware and not stick things on your calendar in the middle of the night.
I had issues with this app, emailed support twice , and didn’t hear anything for months until I emailed a third time and asked for a refund for my subscription. Even then, I was told to contact Apple. If only their customer service & tech was as good as their content.
Love The Skimm!! It’s daily news is digestible, keeps me up to date and provides a backstory if needed. They also hyperlink news articles if you want to know more about a certain point. I also love their podcasts 9-5 and Skimm which I listen to on Apple podcasts
Never works. I keep deleting and reinstalling.
