  • 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 🔥

    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: 

    v2 is even better than the initial product, it makes creating alexa skills so simple, and with the audio and api integrations its more

    Cons: 

    It is the complete package for most builds

    It is perfect for the non-coder, it's also great for demo's for professionals and for beta testing dialog flow for complex skills, It really makes making decent alexa skills available for even non tech people

  • Pros: 

    Huge FREE area...to get started...but too basic.

    Cons: 

    Too Basic...I want to build skills completely without programming and without using other tools. You can only build basic skills here.

    Maybe in the future....this platform will be better. Right now...just NOT able to do any complex skills without actually using outside 3rd party tools.

    Pros: 

    Simple to use and a easy to understand Interface.

    Doesn't take much time to setup and get started

    Cons: 

    How do I use APIs? Couldn't figure that out yet.

    Are you planning to build something where we can send the response to an API, parse it and get Alexa to send a response.

    Pros: 

    The best software for building alexa skills. You'll learn to use it very quickly. 100% the best!

    Cons: 

    I didn't find any.

    I have built a couple of skills using storyline and it's perfect. You don't need anything else. Use storyline.
