I made this a while back but there was no good way to link directly to Alexa skills at the time. Now there is! This was a project for me to learn some new tech (Alexa skills and AWS Lambda) and give back to the Product Hunt community which had been so great to me when I posted my first project.

@johnnyc115 I just got myself an Echo yay :)
Nick Coates@gadgick · Founder,
@johnnyc115 Yay! I commented on the Google Home post a few days back asking if there would be an Alexa version & BAM, you've made one! Thank you! Can't wait to try this on my Echo when I'm back home!

@johnnyc115 Can you add a way to have it keep reading farther down the list?
John CarmichaelMaker@johnnyc115 · Senior Software Engineer, MaxwellHealth
@kristofertm The limiting to 5 was actually feedback from the Alexa team during certification of the skill. They are very strict on the user experience. For example, they made me remove a few "meows" I put in because they aren't "good voice experience". ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I must admit, I was getting pretty jealous when I saw Google Home had an app for PH. But this is great for us Alexa users!

Can you ask it for recent hunts from a certain hunter? Because like, I'd use that everyday. :P
John CarmichaelMaker@johnnyc115 · Senior Software Engineer, MaxwellHealth
@chrismessina Oh that's a great idea! I'll have to see about adding that.
