No thanks… paid app, not free. 1/5
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
The app traps you in to a sub. Don't download unless you want to pay $3 a month.
Game changer 5/5
I seriously could not function as a person without this app.
Excellent - Skimm a day! 5/5
Tells you what you need to know without all of the rhetoric. Clear, concise and clever!
Best News App! 5/5
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!
I LOVE THIS APP 5/5
it's magic. The calendar at the top with the emojis is killer.
Awesome app 5/5
I love how the app always tells me what's going on and coming up! I never feel lost with friends or at work. One of my fave parts is also the 5 minute reads... it helps me to stay informed on subjects and they're always so interesting
Only download if you want to subscribe 1/5
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
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.
Awesome app 🤗 5/5
This app is my new personal assistant. I've been a Skimm'r for a while and love the Daily Skimm, this app just made me love theSkimm even more. It keeps me one step ahead of the game, telling me what's coming up (important primaries, Beyonce album drop, buy Mother's Day present) and keeping me on top of things. Saved my life a few times already, worth every penny!
Also - I love the March Madness calendar!
Practically un-usable 1/5
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
The only app keeping me in the know 5/5
I looove theSkimm. I love the app. I love that they keep me in the know and know the events I need to know about before I do. So happy they listened about Google Cal and even happier w the new calendar view. You guys rock!!!
Love this app! 5/5
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
Cool new view 5/5
The new calendar pane makes it easy to scan through the events they've added recently, so it's a good way to remphasize their content.
I love this App!! 5/5
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!
Not a free app 1/5
Downloaded but haven't activated because it is NOT free. 30 days free then a monthly fee. A lot disappointed that I had to download the thing to find that out.
Can't get off the ground 1/5
Your free trial tricks won't work on me! I'm sorry, but I will not sign up for a subscription that I have to cancel to avoid payment. You don't have anything I want that badly
The more you know... 5/5
I love theSkimm because it keeps me informed without taking up a ton of time. I also like the Skimm Ahead section to fill me in on things that are coming up that I may not even be aware of. Cool app.
Skimm is Super 5/5
In this busy, fast paced environment I love that I can get enough news from Skimm to be part of most any discussion and if I need more information they have links within the abridged version to expand on my knowledge. And...it's all done with humor.
One little snafu, I haven't gotten "credit" for 4 of my shares.
Just what I need 5/5
The Skimm provides a brief, unbiased low-down of the important things going on in the world (plus a few humorous tid bits). They also include links to full news articles for when you want to know more. LOVE THE SKIMM!!
Awesome news app!! 5/5
By Mrs. Hostutler
It's quick, easy, to the point and has links to more in-depth stories if you have time and want to read more about them. Most of all, it makes me laugh. I love anything that makes me laugh that early in the morning!
Cool concept, hidden cost 2/5
We all like skimming through sites on our phone and the app is good at organizing it but it costs money and I see other hidden costs as you venture to other sites. It would be more transparent and appropriate to charge $2.99 up front without incurring future costs.
Great way to stay informed 5/5
Excellent app; awesome way to get informed in a fast, fun way!
Not worth the $$ 1/5
All it did was take me to news sites that require a paid subscription. If all you want is fluff news this might work. I'll just subscribe to the newspapers directly. No need to pay a third party.
Free one month trial, 2.99 a month after 3/5
Expensive monthly fee for what it is.
Great way to keep up to date 5/5
The Skimm is quick, informative, witty news. I love the Skimm app because of the Skimm Ahead feature which lets you know what is coming up in the near future (say, a country's election or the solar eclipse) so you know what to expect. Simple, clean cut, organized, and just the right amount of information.
Love love love 5/5
This rocks my socks and makes my day so much better and informed. Thank you so much!
Love it!!! 5/5
I love theSkimm's app! The calendar feature is incredibly useful, and keeps me in the loop with all important events. I'm so caught up in my day to day, that it's the only thing that keeps me caught up!
Love the calendar integration 5/5
THANK YOU theSkimm 🙏🏽 🙏🏽🙏🏽. Amazing concept and great execution. Simple, smart, and exactly the help I needed with my 📅.
I deleted the app 1/5
It sounded great but you can not use the app until you agree to pay after the 30 day "trial". If they are so sure this is a great app then let me decide that after my 30 day trial. I deleted the app.
Best news app I've ever downloaded 5/5
This app is fantastic. Delivering news in such a way that not only keeps you informed, but gives you backstory on why the current headlines you're reading are so important. Nice layout and design- funny and insightful. Worth every cent.
$2.99/month for some news feeds and a calendar item here and there? No thanks.
I felt like teenagers were writing this. Sophomoric humor. Hard to cancel! Beware!
Best app! 5/5
Literally keeps me up to date with what is coming and I don't miss a thing!
Simply the best app at keeping me informed 5/5
This app makes it much easier to knows what's going on in the world. I love that it syncs with my calendar (helllooo March Madness). I also really appreciate the reads and the recommendations to watch. Thanks for making me feel smarter!
Such a smart app 5/5
Love this app. The new March Madness cal is 💯💯💯
Love theSkimm 5/5
Love reading the Daily Skimm in my app and love the calendar feature to help organize my week ahead!
Love it! 5/5
This is a great app. It keeps me on top of all the things my friends and family talk about all in one place, and even puts the things I really care about in my calendar. Worth the price of admission
Money grab 1/5
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.
Subscription fees - don't bother 1/5
Free if you do it by email but sub fees if you use the app?
The tone of this news app is patronizing and dumbed down, which is particularly offensive since it seems to be marketed to women.
Can't find what or if chargers ... confusing ... deleted when finding a link 1. $2.99. 2. $29.99 1/5
By NV Wier
Thought I might like this... Had to dig deep to find out what ? Where? Or if? there was a change... Checked reviews ... seemed good ... but the reviews said previous versions...🤔 no reviews yet on this version ... then j found something which said 1. $ 2.99 2. $29.99... big ... huge ... difference but still couldn't tell if & what it charged me ... so I deleted it! Too bad ... sounded interested ... but why 29.99... NOT WORTH THAT ... info is free & easy ... 2.99... possibly... 29.99 No Way !!!😱
Say how much? 1/5
Yeah $2.99 right off the bat. So slick you won't even notice during setup. Beware the Skimm scam.
Need a subscription 1/5
30 days free then it costs you. Why?!
"No Excuses" Is Right 5/5
By The Caro
This app has made it effortless to stay abreast in current events and now I look forward to my morning Skimm
Horrible content 1/5
Do not use The Skimm in an attempt to have an intelligent, informed conversation about world events. The writing is sophomoric. The only difference between The Skimm & The Weekly Reader they use to hand out in elementary school, The Skimm hints at vulgar language. Coarse language does not make one "edgy". It is a sign of a weak mind trying to express itself forcefully.
I am not surprised celebrities endorse this product. It seems like something that would appeal to court jesters.
False advertising 1/5
Not free!!!!! You have to pay to use it after a 30 day free trial. False advertising!
Not free 1/5
$2.99 per month. No thanks. There's plenty of free news apps.
Great App, Great Content 5/5
By Matt, 28 TN
I love starting off the day with theSkimm. It's a quick skim over the major events, even sports which I'm not a fan of so I skim over that ish. Great topics for finance and sometimes trading. Humorous. I'm very picky about biased or politically skewed articles. TheSkimm passes the test as a trustworthy source. To top it off they make great wine suggestions on occasion. My clients always love these classy selections as a thanks for their business.
Received a notification that there was an issue with my Apple ID. Something about a purchase not being resolved. Did some research and found out that this app hit me for $2.99
I'd never even downloaded the app. It wasn't on any of my Apple devices but showed as a cloud purchase. No idea how or when as I'm the only one that manages my account.
Had to contact Apple support. I'd avoid.
