theSkimm app reviews

  • Do not download. 5/5

    By 181 Fremont
    Only if you're willing to spend your money for some emoji on your calendar.
  • So worth it 5/5

    By Oliviag435
    Love this new calendar updates Now that I have it I can't imagine my life without it! Seriously theskimm makes it so easy to be smarter
  • Awesome 1/5

    By Augieee
    Awesome !!!... but not for that monthly fee
  • Game changer 5/5

    By css555
    I seriously could not function as a person without this app. It's how I plan my social life (or not-so-social life, when I stay in and watch all the entertainment recs with a box of cereal).
  • Smart, well-written and worth it. 5/5

    By mbptks
    Love it. Easy to navigate, clever writing. As owner of a branding/marketing agency, I especially love the writing and POV. I feel smarter and entertained at the same time.
  • Subscription? 1/5

    By Sasquatch Wade
    Subscription required to use. No thanks.
  • Really 1/5

    By Csmith402
    This app looked so promising, until... 2.99/month! 😒 Seriously?? Who has time for that! IF the entire app (1x fee) were 2.99 or even 3.99 I would easily pay that! So 35.98+ a year to use your calendar! I think not! 🙅🏽
  • just bc you can make an app, doesn't mean you shouldn't 3/5

    By watermelon-sundae
    I thought the interface would look more appealing, more like "theSkimm" I'll continue my support for you guys but via the lovely emails and theskimm.com
  • Pay to have?? No thanks. 1/5

    By LoveLara27
    Didn't realize I had to pay three dollars a month to have an app. Never mind 😔
  • Worst app ever!! 1/5

    By hichandni
    Why would I pay for a few calendar notifications??!!?!! Don't download, but write bad reviews!!!!
  • Really? 1/5

    By LongLiveSpider
    Do you really have to pay $2.99 for a calendar? That makes no sense, don't buy this app! It's not worth $3 for a calendar that will probably mess up in the future. Best off spending that $3 on something useful and not this dumb calendar app.
  • Best News App! 5/5

    By Cam123098
    I begin my mornings by jumping into theSkimm app. theSkimm gets to the point so I'm not wasting time. I ❤️ the app and it is a must have for anyone! Their new calendar feature is a game-changer!
  • Monthly Cost 1/5

    By Chessybirdmess
    You will be charged $3 a month
  • Excellent Summary of the "Need to know" 5/5

    By InterpreterGinger
    As a Sign Language interpreter, it's imperative to be knowledgeable on all current events and popular topics of discussion. Having a good understanding of the subject being discussed between two parties ahead of time greatly increases the accuracy and flow of the interpretation. So thanks to theSkimm for doing my prep work for me! Added bonus: Quick, witty humor and references make reading the news so much more enjoyable
  • Fantastic! 5/5

    By KarinSlaughter
    Really love it. Worth the upgrade, too.
  • Bhhe terrible 1/5

    By boi 2cool 4u losers
    Ghh
  • Misleading 🙄 2/5

    By ZooCatNee
    when i got the app i was excited to finally have dates for things i needed to do. but once i saw i needed a trial it went straight out of my home screen. very misleading. maybe put a warning? 🙁
  • watch your bank statements 1/5

    By alli_7_93
    I thought the emails were great until I started having weird charges come up and I couldn't figure out what they were. Turns out I was being charged by iTunes even though I don't use or have the app anymore?? Very confusing...
  • Good 4/5

    By Killianthehedgehog
    Really good info that keeps you in the loop. Written very simply & easy to understand. Definitely recommend. The calendar feature was tmi for me, ymmv. Sure I want to know when the NBA playoffs are, but unless I'm going to the playoffs in person it doesn't belong on my calendar.
  • Dumpster 1/5

    By Hdbdmdosnsksk
    What a dumpster app, it's FREE to download but 2.99 a month of the bat with a 30 day trails but you still have to pay for the month after. You my good sir are trash
  • Good stuff 5/5

    By z911empire
    I'm always pleasantly surprised at theSkimm's calendar notifications. They really do a great job keeping tabs on what I need to know.
  • Only Cause I Can't Give It a Zero 1/5

    By CraigAT
    Cumbersome account sign up process. Have tried repeatedly to set up an account. Following the rules for setting up password. Have tried numerous times. Was willing to subscribe but not anymore.
  • not much here 1/5

    By M3Mccormick
    Downloaded this app to see what it was about, with all the great reviews. No much was there and I forgot about it.... Then I realize that there have been $3 charged to my account each month. Not very happy about it.
  • My mornings 5/5

    By Diannasu
    This app makes me smile, or should I say the writing does! I stay informed and start my day off right with the skimm! Although - it does make me late on occasion when I need to get ready for work! LOL
  • Monthly Charge After 30 Days 2/5

    By Dianadiluxe
    Seems cool, but not really a free app. 30 day free trial, then a monthly charge.
  • Waiting... 1/5

    By Gerritkl
    Nothing showing up in my calendar yet. Let's see tomorrow morning. And what's going on with all these fake reviews?????
  • Perfection 5/5

    By AtYouRock
    I have nothing negative to say about The Skimm. It's a f**king brilliant idea and it's brilliantly written. My only request is that they let me come work for them.
  • Money grab 1/5

    By Mindflowers
    First, I would guess most of the glowing positive reviews are fake. Evidence: Notice the reviews are either 5 stars or 1 star, nothing in between. If this app were a buck I might be into it. But 2.99 monthly for a few calendar items. They are interesting notes but this is a money grab. And I found it confusing to quit after the free trial. Don't download this app.
  • Love it 5/5

    By eslala
    This app is a fun way to stay well informed
  • Love! 5/5

    By Nicole1850
    Love theSkimm!! Daily emails and the app are amazing! Just updated my app and love how I can now choose exactly what I want to see on my calendar. Never a dull morning with them.
  • Love love love 5/5

    By Seth8189
    This rocks my socks and makes my day so much better and informed. Thank you so much!
  • Such a smart app 5/5

    By CleStu18
    Love this app. The new category cals are 💯💯💯
  • This is scamware. Subscription. 1/5

    By DavidFoster
    Just say no to subscriptions.
  • You've been Skimmed 1/5

    By Debejere
    Not free. Articles are so opinionated. Definitely not a you decide for yourself after reading APP. So disappointed. This could really be a great APP. Let people think for themselves.
  • In The Know! 5/5

    By BLymberis
    If you want to have a wealth of interesting info to share with your peeps, this is the app for you! It's quick news, really well - written, and right on top of current events. If you're a news junkie, or even if you're not, here's your "fix".
  • Love it. 5/5

    By Ashleeeeeyyy
    I've subscribed to the theSkimm email for a few years now, and it's the email I open first every weekday morning. I consider it essential. The app is no different.
  • Don't pay for what's happening in the world 1/5

    By Walkinabox
    News is free. This app is not.
  • Found this via Business Insider 5/5

    By Vsexx_
    Firstly, I read a Business Insider interview with the Founder's of this amazing news source. Secondly, their story compelled me; I wanted to contribute to their success. To those that are complaining that it costs money to read this news source, it's really only $2.99... you pay more for your cable bill and listen to partisan news. News sources charge $ because newspapers are dead (what's a newspaper...?). Also, this is much better for the environment. Happy to pay $2.99 to save some trees. This team knows how to pull important info from an event and put it into cliff notes for you to ingest quickly. They know how to talk to millennials that are like "what's a government shutdown...?" and make the explanation clear and concise while also being nonpartisan. I think this is an excellent app that I'll be using for a long time. Love. It.
  • Not a "free" app! 1/5

    By Crazy Shirley
    You say "some content is premium, some free" - but you can't even launch the app without agreeing to sign up for a "free trial" that then costs you $2.99/month... Sounds like all the readers you've been getting through "Skimmbassadors" have made you greedy for more than what your corporate sponsors are already giving you. Love your research, wit and writings - but whatever business strategist told you this was a good idea: Fire 'em.
  • Scammish 1/5

    By Sfaught
    Don't show this as a free app if you have to sign up and pay for it monthly!!! I very much enjoy the newsletter and will continue to get that but I know you don't need to charge people for this app since you have advertisers...! I'm very disappointed that this is just a sneaky way to get people to pay monthly all the while via App Store luring people to believe the app is free.
  • Very average. 2/5

    By Q-Vt
    Not really that impressive. Would be ok for someone who doesn't read the news. A quick scan of the free BBC headlines works better.
  • Like Cliffnotes for current events 5/5

    By The cat mama
    Want to know what's going on in the world but, much like that awful English lit book, you don't want to spend hours reading it? Check out the skimm. I like that they offer links for further reading too.
  • No thanks… paid app, not free. 1/5

    By TimmayD
    Just a demo. Move along to something else if you thought this would be free. Sure, it may be worth it to some. I just don't want another 30 day demo period. Thanks but no thanks.
  • 2.99 trap 1/5

    By Ymcker
    The app traps you in to a sub. Don't download unless you want to pay $3 a month.
  • Excellent - Skimm a day! 5/5

    By Daveatthebeach
    Tells you what you need to know without all of the rhetoric. Clear, concise and clever!
  • Only download if you want to subscribe 1/5

    By Abigator1900
    This "free" app, but it traps you into a subscription (2.99/month) if you log in. So beware and don't bother with it unless you want to pay for it.
  • Crashes 100% of the time 1/5

    By pzskiba
    Skimm Ahead the new robust way to look ahead is the new downgrade never works right on my iPad and iPhone. Please Skimm Back and give us back what once worked.
  • Practically un-usable 1/5

    By heidijebsip
    There's no way to use the app unless you agree to the "Free Trial" which requires you to sign in with your Apple ID to confirm reoccurring charges in the future. No skip button or anything. I just did it and immediately cancelled but I'm unsure if I'll still be able to use the app in a month
  • Love this app! 5/5

    By monte118
    The best way to stay on top of current events! This app predicts events and premiers I want to know about (that I would have forgotten about otherwise). Love the calendar and the same funny voice of the Daily Skimm
  • I love this App!! 5/5

    By Perry0426123
    Skimm is my favorite app that I have. ❤❤❤ I check it every morning and evening. I love the calendar feature so much, it really keeps me in check with reality and what's coming up every week. I also love the reads section always something interesting for either my commute or before bed. Such a great app!
