The Monetization Strategy

TheSkimm is free to download but offers in-app purchases as these are required. After installation, you will use the app first with a free trial before paying for the subscription in the subsequent months. The monthly subscription is offered at a charge of $2.99 each month. In case you chose the yearly plan, you will pay a one-off payment of $29.99 for the entire year. Payments are directly charged to either your Google or iTunes account depending on your device. It is good to note that subscription automatically renews according to your subscription plan, unless you cancel it. You can turn off the auto-renew setting to avoid being charged for the following month in case you intend to no longer use the app. This should be done at least 24 hours before the end of the current subscription period.
