Love at first Skimm

The Skimm is the unicorn of news apps. You'll wake up with her and smile. You'll laugh together, read together, make plans together. She's the perfect current events goss sesh you've been looking for, with links to sources and opportunities to deep dive. Wondering what book to read next? Netflix show to binge? Cocktail to make? Gift to buy you dad for Father's Day? When you should make that dentist appointment you've been putting off? The Skimm's got you covered. If you are a lover of good things, you will want to make this app yours.

For Women

I like the app, commentary, etc but it's annoying to me that nowhere in the description or anywhere else does it say this app is aimed at women. (And it is based on the content). Now I'm totally fine with that, just wish it mentioned that somewhere in the description. Or at the least throw in some content geared towards men. Little frustrating buying into the subscription and only then find out the slant.



I'm so excited about Skimm and love sharing quick information with links to sources I really trust. But my favorite is where it's heading. I love the notifications, love the customizable calendars that sync with my google cal, and can't wait for new ways to connect with what's happening in the world.
