Listen to many Radio Stations and Podcasts powered by TuneIn (US iHeartRadio), relax to your Audible Audiobooks or let Alexa read you Kindle books.

App Reviews

  • Awesome app, but it needs better VoiceOver accessibility

    By kingofstone
    I really like this app, and I wish I could demonstrate The app for my visual impaired students who use Amazon. I would like to see if it’s possible for the developer to run the app through Apple’s accessibility recommendation tool, maybe that’s all it needs.
  • Changing settings in Alexa app?!!!

    By JohnLA1983
    I purchased this app because I didn’t want to use the original Alexa app however it ask me to set up my devices on Alexa app. Maybe it works for some people but not for me. I hope they refund my money back

  • Best Alexa App on iOS

  • Scam

    By gringa13
    This app doesn’t even work and won’t open on my phone. I wish I knew a way to get a refund.
  • Crash

    By Asdfghjkl3000
    This app crash. Yes will wake up when you said Alexa, but when is thinking crash. I paid $2.99 and this app don't work the money. Sad
  • Almost good

    By Lefut
    The app works pretty well, but the response is noticeably laggier than that of an actual echo device. Also, as a limitation of iOS, the app has to be the active app in order to respond to the wake word, which negates one of the best features of an echo device (hands-free access) unless you always remember to leave this app running in the foreground. The interface has a very clean look when it works, but it tends to get hung up between the home view and the conversation view, rendering both only partially visible. Counterintuitively, this app is configured using the Amazon app, which started out mediocre, then tapered off. Hopefully, this app will actually improved with each update instead of get worse, like the Amazon app. With some trepidation, I'm going to update this app, since I have little to lose. Stay tuned....
  • Amazing app for iOS!

    By BAR112
    Just getting started with Echgo and loving it! All you need to use it is an Amazon account (no hardware necessary). Alexa can provide you with all sorts of information, just by asking (news, weather, synonyms, entertainment, news...the list goes on). Will love this utility more as I continue to use. Thanks for this wonderful app!
  • Awesome!

    By frank_cisco
    This is the app I was looking for. It would be great to be able to trigger Alexa when multitasking and the app is open in the background.
