theSkimm app reviews

  • Scam .... 1/5

    By hannah.yingzi
    It won't sync with the calendars no matter what. Basically just pops out a message it is an error then ask you to change the setting even you have already did the setting .
  • LOVE this app 5/5

    By css555
    Loved this app before, love it even more now because of the Google Cal update! Alleluia πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ.
  • Bait and switch 1/5

    By Top dog dawg
    I don't like getting charged if I forget to cancel. If you're good, prove it, and then I'll buy.
  • Brevity without sacrifice 5/5

    By Irritated ad nauseum
    Where has this been all my life? A little bit of everything. Links to go more in depth in each category, if you so choose. No pop-ups, no irrelevant ads adding clutter to the visual field. A little pop culture, politics, only the big sports goings on, new on TV, New in literature, wine suggestion, humorous (I'm sure I missed a sub category or 2) all written in a clear concise format. Brevity without sacrifice! BRILLIANT AND RELEVANT!
  • Overhype's from fake reviews 1/5

    By Pfb14
    Almost every 4/5 star review is from April 19-20, 2016. That is, the reviews that this one app will change your life are fake. This isn't that great, they just want you to download and sign up for free so they can skim $3 from your bank account each month when you forget to cancel the subscription you automatically sign up for when you activate the 30 days free. ($3 a month from 100,000 people is $3.6 mil a year, so it only takes a relatively small number of iPhone users not paying attention to make a lot of money). Do yourself a favor and pass on this. It's not worth it.
  • Google cal is here!! 5/5

    By Seth8189
    Finally google cal support is here...thanks so much! This makes this Soo much better!
  • My fav app 5/5

    By Manderz331188
    theSkimm is my go-to app. I wouldn't know anything about what's coming up without it. I feel so informed and like I know what everyone else is talking about. As a google cal user, I couldn't be happier that you can Skimmify your calendar w google cal now. Seriously, they know what I need before I do.
  • Following update to iPhone 7 this app won't open. 1/5

    By Colleen Randall
    It's a shame because I liked the app before!
  • The Skimm 5/5

    By Kippette2017
    I love, love, love The Skimm because it's quick and easy to read & it tells me everything I want to know. It's fabulous!!

    By Mrs dictator
    The app has a monthly fee- there is no free content. You cannot even access it without signing up for a free trial which charges you automatically after 30 days. Would not recommend.
  • Excellent News Without Overload 5/5

    By NHDoc2010
    Great news - excellent writing - just the right amount of information without being overloaded like other news sites. The mix of serious news and humorous presentation is a relief from the overly serious and doomsday traditional media sites. I check it every day and have recommended it to my staff, my children, and anyone else who will listen!
  • Question 5/5

    By HDi-Destroyer
    Does this cost money
  • Liberal rag that requires subscription 1/5

    By P00pyPants
    I was intrigued at the app, it is an original thought and a fun execution, but after peeling back the layers my suspicions were confirmed. Not quite a flat out anti-conservative spin, but most articles are defending Hillary, Obama, and the whole racist BLM movement. AND, you want me to agree to a subscription. That "poof" you hear is the sound of me deleting your app and wondering when you Gawker-wannabes will learn.
  • Good 5/5

    By DGBoyd
    Great news and info app to read first thing daily. Also like how they can populate your calendar with useful data like football games.
  • Dumb 1/5

    By Bflatt111
    Really? $3/ month for a view of your calendar, notification of events I don't care about and a selection of random news? No thank you.
  • Surprise 5/5

    By Dickjustdick
    I felt like it's more theSkamm rather than theSkimm. The app allows a free download but the only content is a requirement to subscribe at $2.99/month. The service might be fine but it begins dishonest to get it on your phone. Boo.
  • Commit to paying before trying 1/5

    By DerekPankaew
    You have to commit to paying 2.99 a month before they show you anything in the app.
  • They want $3 a month 1/5

    By Ironchef Hawaiian
    This is not free – they're looking for you to subscribe for three dollars a month.
  • Fresh and Refreshed 5/5

    By LuvRox55
    Great work. Brilliant approach, love the quips, witty delivery and clever repartee. I'm a Skimmer for Good. The Skimm rox y'all. πŸ™ŒπŸ˜Ž
  • Good app. Recommended. 5/5

    By freem221
    Really like the app. Only piece of constructive feedback would be to maybe go a little easier on the sarcasm / irreverence in some news pieces. It kind of lowers the intellectual quality even more than a short summary is already doing. "A dab w'll do ya!"
  • No longer works 1/5

    By suzliebs
    Haven't been able to open the app since this latest update, like nothing loads just a blank screen. Why am I paying a monthly fee for app that I can't use, when I can get the news in my email daily for free?
  • Quickly stay updated!! 5/5

    By iam4au2
    I really enjoy this app! If they had 10 stars I would rate this a 10.
  • You have to buy subscription to use 2/5

    By rosey j
    The app download is free but you have to buy a subscription within the app to be able to use it.
  • Another progressive rag 1/5

    By FoolishPride
    I open it up. First article I see is about the NC bathroom bill. Repeats the same progressive talking point about the bill determining who can go into all public bathrooms. The truth is that it covers state owned bathrooms and preempts localities from saying anything about privately owned public bathrooms. This is another progressive rag trying to pass itself off as non partisan.
  • What's up? 3/5

    By AZXCoder
    Downloaded, but I don't want to spend money on a subscription.
  • Great! 5/5

    By Jencarter
    If you want to read the current events of our world with a sarcastic flair .. this is it!! Make the medicine gone down .. πŸ˜†πŸ˜‰
  • Weird... 2/5

    By B.Dave
    Sooo, this app is pretty weird. I'm not sure how or why it chooses to provide you with topics or articles. And it's not really news, but all this isn't really a problem if you like the content. Here are my issues: It makes you subscribe for $3.00 a month (but first 30 days free!πŸ˜’) And, do NOT let it mess with your calendar. You'll immediately start to see weird appointments for like NBA games and movies. 😣 In short, just go to skimm on the internet for a while to see if you like their content before touching this thing.
  • Love theSkimm app!! 5/5

    By NYCgirl53598
    This app is amazing - helps me stay on top of all upcoming events and even tells me when my favorite shows are back on. I am so glad you created the calendar for google cal -- I use it all day at work and love seeing the updates from theSkimm. Also really love Skimm Reads -- makes it so easy for my book club to always have a great list of options.
  • πŸ’― 5/5

    By ronleebengal
    This app is the first thing I check every morning. I love that I get a notification bright and early for the Daily Skimm because I prefer to read it in the app over email so I don't have to start my day seeing all my work emails. THANK YOU THANK YOU so much SKIMM HQ for listening to my feedback and adding google cal integration, I use the google calendar app and now it syncs so much more seamlessly into my routine. Love you guys, keep up the great work!
  • Genius 5/5

    By Kate❀️Skimm
    Every update gets better and better. GOOGLE CAL?! Read my mind.
  • Love to the new google calendar update 5/5

    By TheLordofIOS
    I live by my google calendar. Now I have all the important events I need to know on my Calendar. This was a great idea by the Skimm team it was a feature lots of people had suggested and I am glad they executed it. Love to know what other cool features they have up their sleeves for the new year. Thank you Guys great work !
  • Love this app 5/5

    By Cbear4707
    I love the information, humor, and whit. I also love that it syncs directly with my Google Calendar - I'm reminded of important stuff like SNL specials, big NFL games, and when my fav TV show comes back. High five to theSkimm on this one.
  • Love the calendar integration 5/5

    By #skimmlife
    THANK YOU theSkimm πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ™πŸ½πŸ™πŸ½. Amazing concept and great execution. Simple, smart, and exactly the help I needed with my πŸ“….
  • Love the Skimm 5/5

    By bessenty
    Love to have a synopsis of the news. Also love the tongue in cheek of the writing. Highly recommend!!
  • Update still not working 1/5

    By ava12
    Don't bother downloading at its current state as all you will get is a blank screen. It's a shame they can't figure this out. Two updates in and both epic fails
  • The best part of waking up... 5/5

    By Puzzler heady
    I absolutely love reading through Skimm first thing in the mornings! I get a little but if everything without getting bombarded with extras
  • Great 5/5

    By Delayne Penland
    Awesome to be able to keep informed so quickly without sitting through a long news show or having to search the web. Love this app to keep up to date and informed!
  • Skimm Review 5/5

    By Love Megan
    Excellent Easy to read Concise On point
  • Loving The Skimm. Here's why: 5/5

    By emel1990
    When I first subscribed to theSkimm, it was a game changer. A few changes in morning routine have made a great difference in my general knowledge and opinion on important issues. I am well informed after a short email or application cruise. Not only am I now more knowledgeable than yesterday but I almost always get a laugh in before breakfast. Can you say the same? Halt. I'm not done yet. You can win stuff daily! It can't really get better than that on a workday before eight AM, guys.
  • Love this app 5/5

    By SkimmUser
    This is a really helpful app to stay informed on helpful economic and social events.
  • Why would I pay for something I can get for free? 1/5

    By JulesnRich
    $2.99 a month for something I can easily get for free?
  • Love!! 5/5

    By Msprenger327
    Love this app!! So happy I Skimmified my calendar. The Skimm reads section is also really great. I look forward to my Skimm every morning.
  • Lame and confusing 1/5

    By Darthur35
    Keeps asking me to "Skimmify my calendar". Now I have 5 Skim calendars in my settings, but it still won't access it.
  • Misleading 1/5

    By TWScott99
    App is marketed as free but you have to pay $3 a month for it to work after a month trial.
  • Glorified US Weekly 1/5

    By Geegro05
    They only talk about TV or fashion or could anyone call this a news app?!?
  • Not worth $2.99 per month. 2/5

    By AP Sydney
    They still have ads.
  • TheSkimm 2.0 5/5

    By ML922
    Absolutely love this app. I have been a long-time subscriber to the newsletter; it's now possible to read everything in one designated place, as opposed to sifting through my inbox. The app has a lot of great features, including TheSkimm book recommendations (my personal favorite) and important calendar dates to remember. 5 stars!
  • Very biased news group 2/5

    By ColleenMRiley
    Not impressed with this app or the Skimm at all in general. This is a very biased news group. They are prejudice and in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another. You might start out liking it and then realize how much fluff your reading like the tabloids. .
  • Fake Reviews 1/5

    By rez-n-8
    No way to curate the news I want to read. Lots of fluff - little substance. I'm very suspicious of all of the 5 star reviews.
  • Disappointing 2/5

    By 805janetplanet
    I'm always looking for a news app that rivals the now defunct The Daily which was my all time favorite. The Skimm falls WAY short of that. Too many typos and inattention to detail such as the picture of Brad and Angelina next to a story about 3rd season premiere of "The Affair" in today's edition make me want to cancel this subscription as soon as I figure out how to do i
