    Love how concise and easy to read this is. I also love that you link in articles if I want more info. Id like to see more cliff note type articles on bigger issues.
  • LOVE it!

  • My one and only

    News source! Can't believe the day has come that I am able to download the Skimm app!! No other news source gives it to you quick and dirty, like the effects of a good martini. Try the others if you must; but you'll quickly see why Skimm is my one and only news source! As for the people who are complaining about the $2.99 per month: a news paper or cable subscription cost waaayyy more and I can get the news I want when I want so for $36.00 per year, it is a no brainer.

    This app is a great idea, but the categories of information available are very pop culture and entertainment industry-based. Where are the sections for science? International culture (sorry, how to pronounce Oktoberfest is not news)? Travel? Thought-provoking philosophy? Art and music? If you like finance, Hollywood entertainment, football, and celeb gossip, you'll be into this, otherwise just skip it.
  • Stand Up - Straighter!

    By Bill Barcode
    Well, everyone was raving about this app, so I subscribed too. OK, I guess... What I have found is that it makes my wife smile. She really likes it! OK, Good! From where I sit, it is a bit too cute and a bit too loc (left of center) in its views and articles. Personally, I would like a subscription that was more - straight down the middle. No cutsie, No commentary. Just the facts. News, not Editorial. Reporting, not Commentary. IMHO, the American public is hungry for honest news, not bias. Life is about balance, and balance is usually found in the middle - a place our journalists fear to tread. How about an app subscription called - "Bullseye - no bull, just an honest look!"

    The Skimm is aiming to be your personal assistant with witty morning briefs. You can adjust the content according to your interests and make it more personal. However, I'm pretty sure it doesn't learn more about you like Pandora's like/dislike algorithm. As a result after a couple of days it starts to fall short of keeping your interest up. Like, I opted for politics and I've been getting all kinds of updates on DACA every day, but no news about world politics. App could easily ask me more questions for getting the content really personalized. Also, there seems to be a problem with the timings since there're recommendations for a long weekend after the long weekend or it redirects me to AppStore to download the app although I already have it. One thing that I like abot the Skimm is that you can add news to your calendar and see the important events on a timeline. tl dr; content is too generic and no effort to personalize it.
