So far so good. Would be a nice touch if you could make the widget on a black background. Defaults to Pacific time zone on installation so if you're in the UK you might want to change the time zone before you set a reminder. My reminder went off at 2am - I nearly wet the bed!
This app is fantastic! It reads Kindle books!!!!!! I listen to a lot of books monthly and if it's does not have an audible version, then I am out of luck, when I am sitting in traffic, which is when I need it most. This app takes care of that by reading for me just like my other echo devices. It accesses traffic, weather and all the typical things you would use your Echo for I have read the complaints about what it can't do, but, the developer clearly indicates those limitations are imposed by Amazon. I have tried other apps and they do not come close to the usefulness of this one. Great work guys. As an aside their is an issue that occurs when I am connected to my car's Bluetooth: if I am listening to Kindle, and take an incoming call, Kindle will not pause, it plays along side my call and I have to manually pause it myself. However, it does NOT prevent me from really liking and recommending this app. It would be great if it did auto-pause. Again great work! Well done.
Finally! Alexa specifically for your smartphone! Been waiting for this. It is awesome and also the voice is very clear and natural sounding. I use other music apps other than Amazon Music, so that's no big deal. This is awesome. Gonna try it a little more and I may upgrade to pro.
you open the app to get a spinning light and "voice recognition starting" takes forever Well I got a reply from the owner of the app, (of course it's my fault) if I leave the app open and minimized it works fine but if you close the app it doesn't stay Active in the notification screen. I have another app "Alexa Listens" When I close this app it stays active in the background, it shows the notification on home screen for quick access to Alexa. I prefer Ultimate Alexa if it would stay active when I close it. I've tried everything but I don't want the app minimized all the time to get it to work properly. The problem with the memory is in the app not in my device.
Only been using this app for a few days but it does most things that Alexa will let you do except for play music. Very handy for when your out and about.
to many problems it does not work with the echo dot won't let you change alexa to echo even if you change the word on device. not worth the money also it keeps telling me I have no smart devices to go to alexa app to set them up. they are set up and work great from my dot. After alot of time of installs and uninstalls I got to work on my tablet but unable to get to work on LG Stylus 3. The problem is that if you have more then one Amazon account you need to be logged into the account that echo was set up on. This problem could be fixed if you had a log in page were you could put in account info and password instead of auto logging in when you set app up. You also told me that you had to use Alexa as the key word. That is not true as the person that made app Reverb has more then one key word and work great. So you may want to check out your competition as there app works better and no ads and no fees.
Ultimate Alexa will now allow your phone to go to sleep automatically when it is running in the background and not listening for the wake word.
Fixed a bug in which the app would allow a switch from portrait to landscape layout even when the phone is locked in portrait mode.
Other minor bug fixes.
