  • More accessibility

    I really wish they made the feature of this app accessible on a desktop. Specifically a log in for the Skimm notes would be very helpful because it’s a lot easier for me to listen on my computer opposed to my phone while at work.
  • Biased

    By Greatsss
    I wouldn’t call them fake news but they are 100% biased against President Trump and they make it clear they are Democrats.
  • One sided

    By Mmedrano87
    Loved the idea and i thought they may try and be a credible news source, but they can’t seem to keep their bias options to themselves. Disappointed
  • Love the skimm, hate the fees!

    By MSUalumni2013
    I subscribed to this app without being aware there were monthly fees. Not sure if they suckered me in with a “free month” or when I did this. But to my surprise I started being charged a monthly fee. Now I can’t figure out to unsubscribe. Frustrating. Love you skimm, but don’t appreciate that I was tricked into a subscription.
  • Calendar Spam

    Can’t block it or turn it off
  • Loved it until...

    By Mike88
    Great app.... until they started inserting events into my busy calendar at specific times during the day.

  • Let down

    By Miker141
    I was excited to be kept up to date but was tricked into downloading the app to find out it wasn’t free. Only a month is. Then you pay. I can read all of this online. I’m not paying for it.
  • Need to Knows - Uninterrupted

    By Suffering Selfie
    As a subscriber to the Skimm for over a year, I couldn’t be happier with the progress made and performance of this app. I turned to the Skimm during the election to get the news I *needed*, not the news I *wanted*. I started out with the Daily Skimm to my inbox and was able to get the day’s news uninterrupted by partisan bias and straight to the point. That captured my attention and I quickly became a subscriber. It’s a little bit of entertainment, sports, pop culture, and world news. I love the calendar subscriptions and I always feel in the know. Keep up the good work!
  • I'll change my review when it's free

    I can literally get all this info for free with tiny cards and a million other apps. Such a rip off
