BridgingApps just published the following BridgingApps Reviewed App to the site:
Amazon Alexa is the companion app for users who own an Alexa device. The app is used to setup the Alexa, control the device remotely, and use the enhanced features.
The Alexa app is easy to use and navigate. From the app users can customize their Alexa settings for their in-home device. This includes preferences such as weather, traffic, and sports updates. From the app users can play their music playlists, and see other information such as the weather. The app also gives the user some things to try with their Alexa, such as asking her, â€œAlexa, create a vacation packing list.â€ The app can also be used to set reminders, alarms, timers, and lists. Users can also view a history of what they have said to their Alexa device.
Another feature of the Alexa app is the ability to drop-in on other Alexa users. This allows users to communicate with other Alexa users, via the device. This is a nice feature for anyone who wants to communicate with their friends and loved ones using hands free technology. Alexa can also be synced with any smart features in the home such as lights and other devices. The app allows users to create a routine so that Alexa does the same thing at the same time every day. There is a skills section and a things to try section which allows users to see other things that Alexa can do as well.
This is an excellent app for users with low vision or blind. Alexa is also great for families and students who may be transitioning from high school to college or the work force. The app allows users to control their Alexa device, which can be done by voice commands. We believe this app would also be beneficial for users who have been diagnosed with Down syndrome or autism spectrum disorder.
Alexa now includes new information that can help save someoneâ€™s life. You can ask about the warning signs of a Heart Attack or Stroke by saying:
Alexa ask American Heart
– What are the warning signs of a Heart Attack?
– I think I am having a Heart Attack
– How can I tell if I am having a Heart Attack?
– What are the warning signs of a Stroke?
– I think I am having a Stroke
– How can I tell if I am having a Stroke?
This skill is for informational and educational purposes only, and is not a substitute for professional CPR training, medical advice, treatment or diagnosis. If you think you have a medical emergency, please dial 911. Calling 911 is almost always the fastest way to get lifesaving treatment. But bystanders trained in CPR can double or even triple the chances of survival during out-of-hospital CPR.
