theSkimm App is giving you all the news and information you need to know and helping you plan ahead. Skimm Notes will talk you through a relevant topic in 10 minutes or less. All you have to do is listen. Skimm Ahead syncs directly with your calendar so you’ll always know when the best TV shows come back, when big political events are happening, and when it’s time to buy things like Mother’s Day presents or book flights for the holidays. Look at you go.
Our audio product breaks down relevant topics in 10 minutes or less, every week. You’ll learn what happened, why it’s important, and where we are now. That means you’ll learn about things like ISIS, artificial intelligence, the opioid crisis, and more.
Our calendar is constantly being updated with important information as events get closer. We also have category specific calendars so you can get more of the things that matter to you. If you’re into entertainment, politics, sports, and/or business and tech we have a calendar for you. Your calendar game is about to get upped.
Every day we choose a new 5 min Read and every Friday, a favorite book. Your bathroom break just got a lot less crappy.
A curated selection of what you need to start watching, listening to, and downloading delivered to you every Friday. Hello, weekend binge.

What's New in Version 2.8.1
Say hi to brand new onboarding that's much smoother. All aboard.
Support quality and convenient journalism
I’ve been subscribed to their emails for a while so now I battled with whether or not I wanted to subscribe for the app. The calendar and the little podcast snipers are fun but that’s pretty much all that’s extra on top of what you get in an email. They’re fun but I couldn’t decide if they were worth 3 dollars. Then I started to think about it as if the emails weren’t free. Each daily skimm would cost about 10 cents with the subscription, then with everything else thrown in as well I definitely think that’s worth it! It’s hard paying for something you can get for free, but this service has become something I depend on. It’s punny and informative and something I want to stick around so when I take that all into account, 3 dollars a month is a steal. Hooray for quality and convenient journalism!
Great content - but lose the cute Mean Girls references
I absolutely love the concept of DailySkimm and I am a regular listener/reader. It really helps mold a fundamental understandings of greater issues taking place today.
HOWEVER, everything from the baby nursery jingle in the opening to the “How the F..” inserts I find terribly annoying. It’s like they feel the script needs to be dumbed down to keep young audiences looped in and, as a fellow member of this demographic, I find this a bit irritating. I wouldn’t be surprised if they compare Trump to Regina George - can we just keep it straight to seriousness of the topic, please?
Well done... just one plea
I will pay for this because it does offer more than other news feeds. I don’t have a lot of time to read or even skim all the news that is on my other news feeds. They offer an audio Skimm on key topics- I especially like the series on world leaders. I wish they would add more of these- I can listen to them while driving and get a good base of what I need to know. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
