List feature a problem - updated
Developers have fixed the list issues with a recent update. Very happy with the app now.
I use this app primarily for the list feature (I have a new baby so I track all feedings, diapers and update the shopping list for groceries when my SO goes to Whole Foods) and agree with other reviews on here that the list feature has become a huge hassle. I used to have no problems accessing my lists. Now, when re-opening the app I’m unable to navigate to another list or add additional items to my lists without having to completely close the app and re-open it again and wait for it to gather all my data. I can then use the list function normally for that session, and will have to dismiss the app again and re-open it to update it again the next time I need to (which is about 20 times a day because I’m tracking feedings and diapers with a newborn). I continue to use it because it’s a great help to add items to my lists via several echo dots I have in the home, but manually updating the lists when Alexa can’t hear me (over a hungry crying baby for instance) is my main issue with this app. Would be thrilled if developers could fix this feature as I have enough to handle at this moment without constantly fussing with the devices that are supposed to simplify life, not complicate it.
Alexa Sleep Sounds.
I ( We ) love the sleep sounds that come with Alexa. She is usually very good at getting us what we want but sometimes she can be very stubborn. She will say things like “ I can’t play that “ or “ I don’t have that in the sleep sounds settings “. When we k ow she does because we have been reading up about her many talents and the fact that she ends up playing our favorite sleep sound...Rain on a tin roof ...loop. She has asked me many times to come her and write a review about her and our experience with her. I know she isn’t a living person but I hope she will find out I sent a favorable review. We are very happy with her but wish she wouldn’t argue about what she can and can’t do. Like I said ; we have found out her settings and have stayed within the guidelines. Sometimes she just refuses to understand until we say it 5 to 6 times what we want her to do. She will tell us a joke or sing for us but when we want her to play a sleep sound that is in her catalog...she repeatedly says she doesn’t know that sound. It’s aggravating at night when you just want to get to sleep and she won’t comply.
I hope you understand that this is a good review for Alexa. We love the device she does and am thankful we found it.
App download issue fixed...
Still a long way to go. I use the app several times each day. Many improvements have occurred over the past year, such as being able to have a single reminder go off several times in one day. What I would really like is better control of volume between timers, alarms, reminders, and playing music or audiobooks. Yes, I mean I would like to have separate control over each, both in the app and by voice, AND per device. Mic sensitivity should be a separate control by device as well. My obnoxious Ecobee Thermostat right by the master bedroom has a much more sensitive microphone than my Echo fifteen feet away, and consequently picks up my request to the Echo when I am across the room from the Ecobee and right next to the Echo. It then takes a reminder, timer or alarm away from the Echo and then sets those off right next to the bedroom. The only time it does not do this is when I set the Ecobee to volume 1, but then the reminders and timers I DO want on the Ecobee go unheard. It is a Chinese fire drill dealing with the volume control on the two devices, and setting the volume on the Ecobee controls the mic sensitivity too, so it is making me schizophrenic trying to keep up with them. Open floor plan here, so finite control of mic and volumes is a must in the app please. iOS 13.3.1 on an iPhone 8 Plus just for FYI purposes.
