This skill is a really easy way for Muslims everywhere to know exactly when and in which direction they need to pray. Simply provide your location and the A-lady will do the rest.

For a mere 99 cents you can have your Echo sound just like Samuel L Jackson. I'm not going to admit that I don't know who he is or what films he's been in (he's an actor - I know that much) but, thanks to David Ward (dward@goodwillvalleys.com), I now know that he certainly has a nice sounding voice.

In the hope that there'll be something similar (and on a sport to your liking) wherever you are, I bring you today's skill about predicting the scores of each week's football matches.

Wow - love this skill. I think I must be a bit odd, but I really like all these simple skills that test you in some way. This one will stretch your memory to the very limit.

Get the old grey cells going with today's memory-boosting skill. What's missing? Is it the donkey, the disco ball or the sponge? Those were the first-round items presented to me on enabling this skill. So you've got to like it from that point on, haven't you?

In looking to see if yesterday's skill was in the UK skillstore, I found today's offering. Can you or your friends guess the correct number without being cursed, or will this skill get the new year off to a shaky start with a hateful witch's hex hurled your way?

He's back. Thomas Domville (thomas@themickeyhouse.com) brings us a brilliant preview of a skill that's soon to hit the US skillstore. Not here in the UK as yet, I hope that it's available wherever you are if it sounds like your cup of tea.

I don't know about you, but my brain goes completely blank under pressure. BTW I answered 'Avocado' in one round and she took it as a colour rather than a fruit/vegetable. Weird, huh?

Here's a fun and potentially very useful skill to help keep your pet relaxed, active and entertained - all in one neat package. Oh and while you're pet's preoccupied, why not record a quick demo for me to include as an episode? Whizz something over to robin.christopherson@gmail.com or just drop me a line to say "Hello" or with your new year's resolutions so that we can compare notes as we keep to them magnificently.

Happy new year! Get your new year resolutions off to a good start by some nifty list manipulation on the A-lady. I neglected to mention this in the demo, but you can also view and tick off all items in the A-lady app too - although I'm sure you knew that already.
