    I love this app! Short, funny, & right on cue.
  • Wait

    By Bstewie
    People actually pay a monthly subscription for this? No, thanks
  • Keeps me sane and at least somewhat informed....

    By KatAnne88
    I am not a big fan of reading or watching the news. I don’t like the repetition of stories, the negativity, or dramatization of events. I just want to be at least somewhat informed and not have to sift through a bunch of negative hyped up crap to do it. That’s why I love the Skimm. It’s simple. It makes it so I can at least have an idea of what’s going on and maybe talk intelligently about it. Only reason I’m not 5 stars is I find it a little hard to navigate this app. I’m not sure how I get to everything all the time and also have a hard time trying to find something I’ve read a while ago if I wanted to look back at it.
  • Very Liberal

    By Vantran321
    Before you get offended by my title, I just want to let you know that I'm very neutral on the political spectrum. The idea is great and the journalism is very easy to follow along. I am just looking for a news outlet that has a more balanced point of view.
  • I love this app.

    By Popstar5991
    Best news app I’ve seen by far. I’ve never wanted to read the news more!
  • I’m impressed

    By BattleRed
    I’m always hesitate to get another news app. I already have MSNBC & Fox News and don’t need anymore yelling. Skimm just tells the story. It actually gives both sides deliberately but it’s not in a they’re wrong or right description. In regards to the subscription its more that just a news story reporting service that yes you can get free from 100’s of apps. It gives easy to backgrounds & research of topics as well. Only wish is they had a podcast so I could get updates from Hey Siri. My go to news (not yelling) app!
  • Ultra liberal

    By Redline450
    Very one sided, this is the app for far left ultra liberal females ... the groups that have time protest everything
  • Excellent service & worth the fee

    By AlphaJules
    The best updates, with clear & concise language, and a clever, witty sensibility. They always seem to know what is happening & keep me informed. Stellar insights on books & other key educational information to help me stay up to date, and growing my own brain. It’s my fav!
  • Bait and switch membership for biased information

    By Hobert miller h
    This free app has nothing to offer unless you pay its monthly fee, which was not disclosed openly upon downloading. The information in the bite sized pieces are very liberal leaning in pay gap “Facts”, and is not politically unbiased in the information it gives you, and it’s delivery. A portion of the information is not fact checked, and is presented at the same credibility of a college podcast, not a news agency. So take everything with a grain of salt. As a synapses, this app will best benefit a liberal leaning person looking for quick information, and doesn’t mind paying a monthly fee.
  • Well worth it! My go to news!

    By Bms1290
    Hello, I just downloaded this app the other day and I have to say I’m really loving it. I’m a 27 year old stay at home mom and I can’t always have the news on or sit on my phone and read up on world affairs/daily news. This is one of the best apps I’ve ever come across. It covers everything and I love that it explains what certain things are like the (Nuclear deal) for example. That is my favorite part of the app. Since I tend to be out of the loop, I sometimes don’t know what things are about. I’m normally a Twitter user but this app goes far beyond because it takes the time to cover everything, stick with key points and explain what things are. I’m finding myself clicking on this app more so than Twitter now! I have no issues paying for this service whatsoever. Thank you to the creators of this app. I can tell a lot of love went into it and hard work on the daily. 5 stars from me!
