Well it is better... app stays open for about 30 seconds before crashing
The app itself needs fine tuning. Pressing back doesnt take you back to your search page it takes you back to the home page. There could be a little description in each mini pic because selecting each one and then getting sent back to homepage when looking for a new skill gets old fast. The skills are mostly garbage too. Either not written well or really obscure things few people want/need. So far Alexas only useful if you already have a bunch of other things you pay monthly for and alexa binds them together. Not very interesting. Your phone already does that.
I had originally given them 5 stars but I'm reducing that to 4 because there seems to be no landscape mode. I use this almost exclusively on a tablet. Beyond this I wish it had 2 default setting for the volume. Most times, I enjoy listening to quiet music, so I turn turn the volume low. But this voume is not loud enough for when I listen to the news, for instance. I find myself having to change the volume frequently.
Dear Amazon this is really lovely and a step towards the future. However the set up on the app looses a point for not letting people know that they could save a great deal of time searching for a solution to the problem of them reaching the set-up page to find it constantly remains a blank screen without it ever connecting. Amazon you could simply correct this by informing Samsung s7 customers to disable auto network switching (in WiFi settings/more) first! Otherwise, good job!
These features and I would've given a 5 star. Being able to link my tunein account. The ability to remove favorited podcast/station in tunein, (You can add but not remove). Also the ability to use voice commands with tunein to play podcasts in chronological order from first episode to last. The use of voice commands to play certain episodes of podcasts. The ability to fast forward/rewind in epiodes of podcasts. Until these features are added there is no point to include tunein as an in app feature. It actually makes using the in app version very frustrating and as useful as any generic bluetooth speaker. Please and thank You.
Latest app issues...numbee one..once again the alarm function on app gets stuck..i can't set or shut alarm off from app. Two. The design..ugh..awful. Who is testing the functionality of your software? Hire someone new! Three I agree with other users..new app was interfering with wifi connection..i reinstalled several times..deleted everything read some blogs on how to fix..i love alexa but glad you are getting competition in this market..you need the incentive to get things right..this is basic stuff. .
