    The skim is a good read, sometimes. It is definitely geared towards 20 something-year-old‘s. I subscribed over a year ago, rarely read it bc I get my news from other sources. I frankly do not understand the wording often in this newsletter. I do not use or want the calendar either. I have tried unsuccessfully to cancel! HELP! How can I stop them from billing my iphone account! If I cancel the card they just bill the card I have for itunes. I feel like Im being robbed!! Please assist🙏🙏🙏

    Love the Skimm, comes to my email every morning keeping me aware of everything major (and entertaining) going on in the US and around the world. It’s written in a light, easy to understand and dry humorous tone that really suits me.
  • Love the app, no notifications?

    Not getting any notifications on a brand new iPhone XS and the latest version of the app. Installed and reinstalled. What’s going on? Notifications don’t seem to be working 🤷🏽‍♂️ fix please.

    I can not recommend the Skimm enough. It is a fair and balanced news source that skips over all the nonsense and gets right down to the relevant issues. The Skimm app allows me to down load various calendars of things I am interested in and don’t want to miss. They also conduct interesting, thought provoking interviews. There is nothing not to love about this app.
  • One sided & biased

    You don’t get a balanced viewpoint from this site. Having the new read for you leaves the readers revealing their opinion. Not the balance of it. The “News & News” app does a much better job. You’ll have to read though.
  • Yay App!

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

    I came across the Skimm and was excited to receive all of the goodness that came with it. I did not realize that this was actually something I paid for monthly. I obviously didn’t read the small print and felt it was my stupidity that I am paying $2.99/ month. I came to terms with that, however, when I tried to open the app it would flash and just close... I haven’t had access to the app in MONTHS, yet my credit card is continuously being charged. I think the fair thing to do is to cancel my subscription and refund the money paid while the app glitches out on me EVERY TIME I tried to open it. Thank You.
