What's New in Version 1.4.1

Hey Skimm'rs - in honor of the Rio Summer Games, we made an Olympics-only calendar. We did this because 1. Skimm A is obsessed with the Olympics 2. There are about a zillion events over the course of two weeks and a lot of ‘halp, what do I watch and when?’

How do you get this calendar? Just update the app, and opt-in under those v athletic-looking cartoons on your homescreen.

Time to sit back, relax, and watch other people sweat.

PS: Once the Olympics start we’ll be updating the calendar to make sure you don’t miss anything.

Also: Other bug fixes and improvements to make the experience so fresh and so smooth, smooth.

Love this new Olympics Calendar feature!!!!!!!

This is my favorite app that I have. I check it every morning, evening, and even throughout the day. I am obsessed with the reads section and feel myself getting smarter and more informed each and every time I use this app. EVERYONE should download this app!!!!! It is a lifesaver. 📕📗📘📙📒📔📓 Completely worth the subscription!!! 😍 the new olympics calendar feature is a lifesaver!!!

They make it very difficult to unsubscribe

This company makes the default on their app that you pay them monthly through iTunes. I'm sure some people will end up paying for the "free" trial without meaning to, thinking that they never entered a credit card number, and not realizing it is being charged through iTunes. I like the service, but I feel like if they had integrity they would give you a truly free trial that ended in 30 days, with the option to decide to pay for a subscription at that point. If you're that good, you shouldn't have to trick people into giving you their money.

Gold medal! 🎖

theSkimm always continues to impress me by introducing new parts of the app that you can't find anywhere else. I loved the Skimm Reads update and now love the Olympics update that lets me know when all the Olympic events that I'm interested in are happening. I can now plan my social life without missing the US WNT go for gold. Why didn't this come into my life 8 years ago?!? Go Team USA and go theSkimm!
