Bite-size news app theSkimm answers the question many of us wonder after we wake up each morning: What happened in the world while I was sleeping?
The monthly subscription includes an indispensable news digest called The Daily Skimm, delivered at 6 a.m. ET every day. It’s packed with summaries of top stories, all served with a side of sarcasm, silly humor, and emoji.
If you prefer listening to your news rather than reading it, lend an ear to Skimm Notes. These 10-minute mini-podcasts break down complex topics like Middle East foreign policy and net neutrality so you can speak intelligently about them around the watercooler.
Plus, Skimm Notes now work with CarPlay, so you can put your commute to work.
All that knowledge is nice, but the feature that might change your life is Skimm Ahead, which syncs major events to your iOS calendar. So when you check your schedule, you’ll also see sports matchups, the most-hyped movie releases, and the best obscure food holidays.
