Congratulations @maxelster on creating this app. Great to see something that is mobile versus the other platforms I have been exploring and using for Alexa Flash briefings are desktop - this will be of interest to mobile journalists. I have a few questions: - do you have an example of a Flash briefing we can hear that has been created on a phone? - if someone uses your platform can we download the audio that we create so we can repurpose it? - are there any editing features when we create in your app such as if we want to delete a segment or trim the beginning and end - in terms of publishing to Amazon I am guessing we will need to go through the process of creating an Amazon developer account so that we can then name it and add artwork etc? - what if we want to publish to more than one Amazon store - for example, I am publishing to 5 English speaking stores with another platform and have taken the same feed and published it to the 5 different countries - any plans to launch on Android? - are you going to be mobile only or will you be launching a desktop publishing tool too? - any plans for text and video Flash briefings? - would love to see your product roadmap too for what you have planned for the future. - and wondering what inspired you to create the platform? Looking forward to learning more about your platform - in the meantime, I have downloaded the app and added it to my curations to share in my mobile content creation and digital marketing programmes with marketing/media and PR professionals.

Hey @krishnade ! thank you for that awesome comment! We'll try to answer all your questions as well as possible ;) Q: do you have an example of a Flash briefing we can hear that has been created on a phone? A: It depends on your language/locale :) In germany your can try the briefing from Daniel Jung, Julien Backhaus or Ilja Grzeskowitz. In America, Kane from V.U.X. has his briefing up and running with our app. Q: if someone uses your platform can we download the audio that we create so we can repurpose it? A: Currently not, but that would be a great feature! We store your file, so that would be no problem. There is a workaround, if that's critical for you, pls send me a mail to luca@ampli-voice.com. Q: are there any editing features when we create in your app such as if we want to delete a segment or trim the beginning and end A: Nop, currently not :) Would also be a great feature! Q: in terms of publishing to Amazon I am guessing we will need to go through the process of creating an Amazon developer account so that we can then name it and add artwork etc? A: Yep, but you can directly do that in the app. We tried to make the publishing process as simple as possible, so everybody can do that without great effort. Q: what if we want to publish to more than one Amazon store - for example, I am publishing to 5 English speaking stores with another platform and have taken the same feed and published it to the 5 different countries A: currently not supported, but it's one of our next features in the app. We have to setup some things. Also, if that is necessary for you, contact me at luca@ampli-voice.com. Q: any plans to launch on Android? A: Yes :) We will use the feedback of our iOS user to directly implement it in the android version. But this will take a while. Q: are you going to be mobile only or will you be launching a desktop publishing tool too? A: Mobile first. There are already other great tools to launch your flash briefing with a desktop app. Q: any plans for text and video Flash briefings? A: Yep, these are going to be great features! Q: would love to see your product roadmap too for what you have planned for the future. A: Currently we cannot publish it, but we will work on that, so you can see it in a few days :) Q: and wondering what inspired you to create the platform? A: Awesome question! We think that we will soon be a #VoiceFirst world, so wanted to give content distributors an easy way to create content for the Alexa platform. Again, thank you for that awesome comment! The whole team loves it! :) Kindest regards, Luca

Awesome guys! Really love the idea behind the product! In my opinion there is no easier way to create your own voice briefing on Alexa. I can only recommend to everyone who wants to reach out to his audience via a voice assistant! Keep on keeping on!

Loved the concept! One of the key use cases I talk to Alexa is daily new briefings from media houses. Would love to hear from Influencers in my field of interest via Alexa briefings. How do you plan to build the 'creator' base?

Would be awesome if you could give me as a newbie an overview of what is Alexa briefing and how is it different to an Alexa skill? I only heard about Alexa skills but have no clue what either of them is exactly 😉
