Skill Ideas

The following are some of the skill ideas that are potentially in development.

Alexa Bible

The Alexa Bible skill would have the following functionality:

  • Output the recent news
  • Act as a syndicator for Alexa themed podcasts
  • Skill of the day/week (promote a skill)

Gig Guide Skill

The skill would allow a user to set their hometown and request what gigs are scheduled for any given date. Additional features would be:

  • Fetch venue details
  • Purchase tickets (would require a partner)
  • Further details regarding the event (start time, lineup, age restrictions etc).
  • Track bands and be alerted when they announce a tour

 

I am always interested in ideas for a new skill. If you would like to suggest an idea (and potentially bag a £20 Amazon voucher) be sure to tip me off to the idea on my idea suggestion form.
