Skims

The Skim API converts any webpage into a skim-readable card. The skim is designed to save users time when consuming information, making the available content more readable and shareable.

The skim is a summary of the content of the page with a category for the content. The number of different skim genres, for now, includes News/Blog, Listicle, Video and Image.
