Skimmin summarizes the daily news, giving users a quick but comprehensive snapshot of the day that was. Our goal is to inform you in under 1 minute a day. (Seriously, that's it!)

There are three key differences between our app and every other news app:

1) Our editors only post updates when something 'concrete' and 'essential' occurs in the world. This way, we aren't cluttering your feed with commentary, opinion or sensational stories.

2) Each development is presented as a concise and factual summary, not as a lengthy article. (We 'do' provide links to the full source if a summary sparks your interest and you want to dive in deeper.)

3) Timeline. With many stories, developments pile on top of each other (e.g. the Boston Marathon Bombing). If you haven't been following a particular story, all you have to do is tap 'Timeline' to see the entire story rolled into one chronological thread, similar to your email messages.

At the end of the day, the value proposition is simple: we save you TIME!
