    Pros: 

    Love that everyone can build their own Alexa skill! Easy to use.

    Cons: 

    More options and integrations (I’m sure they are coming)

    As a ‘techie’ working in with chatbots I often get asked for help in building out things like Alexa skills, as people are excited to be able to add to their echo in this way. While this isn’t hard for an experienced developer, it can be very overwhelming for someone unfamiliar with coding, and mean they may give up. This is a great tool to help people learn about voice design and get excited about the possibilities!

  • Pros: 

    super easy visual interface, quick up-and-running process

    Cons: 

    Nothing

    I’ve always been thinking about building Alexa skill to surprise my girlfriend, but was struggling with the tech part. Just built it on Storyline in about 10 minutes, and playing with it on my Alexa right now. It’s insanely simple. Keep it up, guys 🔥

Thanks for sharing Storyline, @chrismessina! Hey everyone, welcome to Storyline! 👏 15 years ago, when I was watching Star Trek, I was amazed. They could literally make machines do something using only their voice. Now, it’s happening everywhere. There’s no doubt that voice applications are going to completely change the way we all live our daily lives. But the creation of voice apps is still broken. We believe that you don’t have to be a developer to share your story and create a presence in the emerging voice space. We keep complex tech behind the scenes and make it easy to create, test, and publish voice apps in minutes, using simple mind-map interface and pre-built templates. There’s no need to code anything and setup servers. And this is all available today! Sign up for Storyline and let us know if we’ve simplified the process of creating voice apps. P.S. check out our special template for Product Hunt, it’s fun and has a question about @rrhoover! 😉

@vasili_shinkorenko Nice one, thanks! I've just set up a simple app to ask my kids in the morning if they're feeling happy or sad, and respond accordingly (with a 'great! have a fun day' if they're happy, or a joke if they're sad). I can't wait to try it out tomorrow morning! There's a load of potential in this!

Looks awesome! Do you plan to support templates? We'd love to add voice bots to https://botmakers.net.

@agamanyuk that's the secret plan! Our app makers already built a few ready to use :) We definitely need to chat 😉

@vasili_shinkorenko sounds good, let's start with something simple and see how It goes. We have good organic traffic for alexa skills on chatbottle.co, I believe there is a demand.

This is such a simple tool to design conversations. I remember following a workshop on chatbot summit in Berlin from Amazon. So complicated with github etc... this is flawless! Great 👍 work!
