  • Absolutely love it

    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.
  • Does not work

    The Skimm was recommended to me and the message that says the server is not working keeps coming up. Customer service got back to me once asking me to check my internet connection. It was fine, and I followed up saying the issue is still happening. Customer service has not gotten back to me after a few days.

  • Too little news, too much ads

    By Fory1992
    Seriously, the ads is at least 1/3 of the content, and they are disguised so you have to read it halfway to realize they are not the kind of information that you are willing to spend your 10min reading time on in the morning. And yes, you are paying to read this. Bravo.
  • great information

    knowledge is power;)
  • Dishonest source of news

    By J45612346
    I truly appreciate the condensed format of the news that theSkimm offers. I had found it ideal for someone looking to stay informed on a fairly well rounded variety of topics, but the “news” reported has increasingly become politicized and opinionated, while still be “reported” as factual. In the past, theSkimm would present both sides of different issues, leaving the readers to draw conclusions. Now, theSkimm will occasionally print blatant misinformation and state that highly politicized and controversial ideas such as defunding the police are “necessary”.
  • No More Landscape?!
