    "Big sky is free and it's a great way of getting the local information about the weather in a concise manner. Adding wind chill (and heat index) "feels like" information would be a fantastic addition, but it's excellent even without that."

    "I think this app is a 'your mileage may vary' kind of experience. I got this because I got tired of trying to juggle all of my events and responsibilities. I wanted to link everything (especially my personal and my work calendar) through Alexa. It didn't work. I can't tell you why it wouldn't work, just that it didn't link up and this was why I got it.

    "I just recently received an Echo and was wondering what some of the best apps are for it. This one looks like it might be interesting and helpful for workouts. It's not as highly rated as I would have hoped, but I'm thinking of checking out because the workout seems appealing to me."

    "This is a great app for families and kids. It gives kids the autonomy to decide how stories should play out . I wouldn't put this on the list of best Alexa apps, as this isn't something that some adults would not find as interesting. If you are interested in adventure and storytelling, this might be a good option!"
