I currently have the following skills live:
|Dundee Gigs||Users can request details of gigs on a specific day that are on in Dundee. The skill can also provide basic information regarding the venue.||n/a||Skill Page||n/a|
|Dundee Facts||A simple fact skill that gives a random fact about the city of Dundee in Scotland.||n/a||Skill Page||n/a|
|Know Your MSP||This is a skill that is intended to accompany the site Know Your MSP. The skill was initially created and submitted in the Hackster competition. Find out more HERE.||n/a||Skill Page||n/a|
|Wacken Facts||Users can request a random fact regarding the largest heavy metal festival in the world, the Wacken festival located in Germany.||n/a||Skill Page|
The following are some of the skill ideas that are potentially in development.
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.
