App Store Description

theSkimm App is a membership to living smarter.

It integrates into your routine so you’re always in the know, from AM to PM, Monday to Friday. Plus it helps you maximize your downtime on weekends too. Try the app for free. After that, pay less than a cup of coffee a month. We’re making it easier for you to live a smarter life, and there’s a lot that comes with that…

Wake up every weekday with the news you need to know to start your day. All nonpartisan. All in one place. All in 5 mins or less.

Get audio episodes that break down important, relevant topics, timed perfectly for your commute.

Every week, get a new Skimm Guide that goes deep on the stories shaping our world. Go down a rabbit hole on complex topics like Brexit and Immigration in the US.

Our calendar syncs directly with yours to make sure you always know what’s coming up and can plan ahead for your routine. It’s constantly updating to make sure you never miss important events in politics, sports, entertainment, and more. Plus, you can personalize the categories to make it your own.

Every day, we recommend a new, 5 min Read for your lunch break and every Friday, new recs on books, movies, recipes, and more. Consider your downtime managed.
