  • Yay App!

    By JMACapers
    I love the layout of the app and how the tabs function. It’s easy to navigate and looks good.

    Morning news with a side of humor! Love reading The Skim with my morning coffee, starts my day with a chuckle and I feel like I have an idea of what’s going on in the world.

  • 1 minor issue

    By ConnorB_18
    I love the app and the whole idea of TheSkimm. My one complaint is that when a “podcast” or Skimm Notes is playing I can’t use the menu bar at the bottom to browse through the app to find another Skimm to listen to. I’m sure this issue is being addressed by the Skimm team, but that is my only complaint about the app. I am using an iPhone XR and this bug may be occurring on the other phones with the notch.
  • Having a Sonic Meltdown...

    By ingiep
    Sweet Jesus. EIGHT Sonic ads (some 2x in a row, same ad) for three 30 second videos??? If you can't sell ads, suppress vids & quit selling hamburgers.
  • Clutch

    By coltonjsmith
    I have always struggled with staying informed. Not anymore. I feel as though I can have conversation based in fact with those in my circle & stay current with what matters to me, what is happening in our world. Thank you for the wonderful resource! I am grateful.

    By toribyers13
    I am so tired of apps that list themselves as free, and then you download it only to find out that you have to pay monthly to use the app. Don’t advertise yourself as a free app if I can’t even use it without paying for a subscription.
  • Fallen from it’s pedestal

    By CWB in CA
    Despite its casual flare, this used to be the leading and most concise news service, possibly bar none. While it remains on top of many leading news stories, it has become so heavily politically biased it its tone that it has lowered itself to other mainstream media and lost its ability to effectively report the leading stories ahead of everyone. Great to have a political view but don’t let it get in the way of what was exceptional journalism. Missing the old Skimm reporting
