  • They keep charging me for useless stuff

    Don’t buy this. You can never cancel it’s so annoying and a freaken waste of money. The j formation they give is just like everything else. Not worth the money.

  • This app is worth the money

    It’s cheap and amazing. It’s a great way to get news that’s not left leaning or right leaning, just the facts. If you want to stay informed it’s the perfect way to do that. They offer a lot (daily read, the daily skimm, podcasts, colander of events, etc...) and the best part is that if you can’t afford to pay for it you can just sign up for the emails which I did for a few months and it was good, of course the app is better though. Also, with the app you can now sign up for text questions so they send you a topic each week and you can ask questions and they will answer them. I just signed up for it and can’t wait to ask about the next topic.

    I use the Skimm app almost daily. I like the clean look and links better in the app than in the email. I also like the additional content, such as the 5-minute reads. One suggestion is for the weekend content to be able to be accessed at a later date. Sometimes a show or book will be recommended and I can’t find it later.
