DTD368 Word Play

February 1, 2018

Hooray! Today we have another listener contributing a fab skill for the very first time. Chris Chaffin takes us on a tour of the wonderful Word Play skill. Keep 'em coming Chris (in fact he does with another brilliant demo in just a few days time - mark my words).


DTD367 2017 Quiz

January 31, 2018

We're still in January (just) and so 2017 hopefully isn't too distant a memory as yet, so let's see how much we remember of that very memorable year that's just bound to go down in history…


DTD366 A Moment of Popcorn, Air Traffic Control and Lonely Beach

January 30, 2018

Today we look at three randomly-chosen examples of the 'A Moment Of…' skills. There are squillions of them (that's a technical term - it means; 'An exact amount that remains as yet unconfirmed because the person using the term can't be bothered to go and count them all') so do check them out by searching for that phrase in the skill store.


DTD365 Twisted Tales

January 29, 2018

Wow - We've made it through a whole year! Today's episode, which marks 365 days of almost entire audio agony (with brief reprieves when you guys step in), is very fittingly brought to you by a listener. Big R's back with a really lip-smacking juicy one called Twisted Tales. Thanks everso @TheBigR.


DTD364 A-lady, help me get started with skills

January 28, 2018

Today's quick tip about asking the A-lady for some help getting started with skills, quickly turns into revisiting the excellent 'Question of the Day' quiz. It's worth a reprise, though. Love that skill.


DTD363 Football Trivia

January 27, 2018

Today Sam's back to show us how, even if you're a fully-fledged football genius, you can still stumble over questions from approximately a million and a half years ago when they were obviously kicking a brontesaurus bladder about. Give him some up-to-date trivia, though, and he's pretty much on-target every time.


DTD362 Insult Me

January 26, 2018

If you want to be insulted by a grumpy yet strangely self-satisfied bloke then this skill might be for you. BTW if it isn't to insulting to ask, I'd really love it if you would tell/tweet to your friends about DTD using the hashtag #DTDPod - thanks muchly


DTD361 New built-in translation

January 25, 2018

Woohoo! We can now ask the A-lady to directly translate words and phrases into dozens of different languages for us. Esto es fantastico!


DTD360 Manor Mystery

January 24, 2018

It's your basic choose-your-own-adventure sort of a skill today. It's tone is terribly taciturn as you take your turns moving through this mysterious manor - but that's a good thing if you ask me. I do enough waffling for the both of us. Good luck with this one guys.


DTD359 Additional - The Tech Talk podcast and spot the Dot

January 23, 2018

In this additional episode I plug the RNIB's Tech Talk podcast, the excellent hosts of which I blame for being the reason why I started Dot to Dot in the first place. If you have a visual impairment and you love tech then please do subscribe to their excellent show. I also mention about the Echo Spot that's coming on sale here in the UK tomorrow!
