  • Scammish

    By Sfaught
    Don't show this as a free app if you have to sign up and pay for it monthly!!! I very much enjoy the newsletter and will continue to get that but I know you don't need to charge people for this app since you have advertisers...! I'm very disappointed that this is just a sneaky way to get people to pay monthly all the while via App Store luring people to believe the app is free.
  • Very average.

    By Q-Vt
    Not really that impressive. Would be ok for someone who doesn't read the news. A quick scan of the free BBC headlines works better.
  • Like Cliffnotes for current events

    Want to know what's going on in the world but, much like that awful English lit book, you don't want to spend hours reading it? Check out the skimm. I like that they offer links for further reading too.
  • No thanks… paid app, not free.

    By TimmayD
    Just a demo. Move along to something else if you thought this would be free. Sure, it may be worth it to some. I just don't want another 30 day demo period. Thanks but no thanks.
  • 2.99 trap

    By Ymcker
    The app traps you in to a sub. Don't download unless you want to pay $3 a month.
  • Game changer

    By css555
    I seriously could not function as a person without this app.
  • Excellent - Skimm a day!

    By Daveatthebeach
    Tells you what you need to know without all of the rhetoric. Clear, concise and clever!
  • Best News App!

    By Cam123098
    I begin my mornings by jumping into theSkimm app. theSkimm gets to the point so I'm not wasting time. I ❤️ the app and it is a must have for anyone!

    By Kate❤️Skimm
    it's magic. The calendar at the top with the emojis is killer.
  • Awesome app

    By AndyGreen1991
    I love how the app always tells me what's going on and coming up! I never feel lost with friends or at work. One of my fave parts is also the 5 minute reads... it helps me to stay informed on subjects and they're always so interesting
  • Only download if you want to subscribe

    By Abigator1900
    This "free" app, but it traps you into a subscription (2.99/month) if you log in. So beware and don't bother with it unless you want to pay for it.
  • Crashes 100% of the time

    Skimm Ahead the new robust way to look ahead is the new downgrade never works right on my iPad and iPhone. Please Skimm Back and give us back what once worked.
