Found this via Business Insider
Firstly, I read a Business Insider interview with the Founder's of this amazing news source. Secondly, their story compelled me; I wanted to contribute to their success.
To those that are complaining that it costs money to read this news source, it's really only $2.99... you pay more for your cable bill and listen to partisan news. News sources charge $ because newspapers are dead (what's a newspaper...?). Also, this is much better for the environment. Happy to pay $2.99 to save some trees.
This team knows how to pull important info from an event and put it into cliff notes for you to ingest quickly. They know how to talk to millennials that are like "what's a government shutdown...?" and make the explanation clear and concise while also being nonpartisan.
I think this is an excellent app that I'll be using for a long time. Love. It.
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.
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
