theSkimm makes it easier to be smarter. Millions of people rely on the Daily Skimm for their news every morning, and now we’re making it easier to be smarter in a whole new way. Think: the future and everything else.
-- Meet Skimm Ahead: it gives you all the info you need about future events. Never again will you wonder when Beyonce tickets go on sale, what time the debate starts, when your favorite Netflix series is coming back, or when National Wine Day is.
And the best part - it can all show up directly in your calendar.
-- Meet Skimm Reads: everyday we choose a new 5 min Read and every Friday a favorite book. All the reads. All the time. All in one place. Oh, and then we make it easy to search for past ones so you’ll never run out of things to read. Your bathroom break just got a lot less crappy.
-- Meet Skimm Picks: a selection of what you need to start watching, downloading, and listening to.
-- Daily Skimm: yes, the best way to wake up is also here. It’s free 99 and it starts your morning with all the info you need to get you through your day.
Your first month of the app is free. That’s right. You can Skimmify your calendar and check out all the events, Reads, and Picks before a recurring charge of $2.99 per month or $29.99 per year is applied.

Good. Great news and info app to read first thing daily. Also like how they can populate your calendar with useful data like football
Surprise. I felt like it's more theSkamm rather than theSkimm. The app allows a free download but the only content is a requirement to
