Love the new look

What would I do without Skimm ahead?! I'm obsessed with the new photos within the app. Makes it so much easier to understand. Also I can now share with others so much easier. This app is how I know what's going on in the world.... and also when to watch my favorite new shows. The calendar integration makes it easy to remember what's going. YES! theSkimm does it again and again.

Skimm, I love you to the moon and back.

The ONLY qualm I have with you is that everyone once in a blue moon, you sprinkle in some biased comments that lean to the left. But for the most part, you guys give me the news and you present it in a very fair and balanced way. I appreciate that MORE THAN YOU KNOW. Please don't turn "left" on me, Skimm. I'm not even asking you to turn "right", just stay the straight and narrow and I'll be a faithful Skimm-er for ever. LOVE YOU LOVE YOU LOVE YOU!!!!


This app is the first thing I check every morning. I love that I get a notification bright and early for the Daily Skimm because I prefer to read it in the app over email so I don't have to start my day seeing all my work emails. Also having the events in my calendar is so clutch, I didn't forget to watch the World Series! And lastly, thanks for my perfect five min 🚽 reads!
