Potpourri / Re: what mobile payment do you use
« Last post by renegade600 on May 26, 2019, 08:20:29 pm »
I  prefer to use my credit card for purchases so all my purchases are on one bill I pay off each month,  and get cash back, too. Seems to be just as fast as pulling out a mobile phone.

so true, using a card is faster.  pull it from the wallet and scan.   Of the ones I mentioned, as far as I know google pay is the fastest.  I am able to place my finger over the scan and by the time I pulled the phone from my pocket, it is ready to use.   

the slowest one is walmart pay.  most of the time it take several minutes to use in my local walmart.  and I mean minutes.    I only use it because it keeps an electronic copy of my receipt.   all of walmart advertisements claim it is so much faster than using a card.   I often wonder if I could sue over that since that is totally not true.

None, I use a credit card that pays me for using it.

just a fyi, using mobile payments does not stop you from getting paid for using that card.

Echo Across the Pond (Europe) / Spotify skipping half tracks
« Last post by Maniac on May 26, 2019, 01:59:50 am »
So every now and then while the echo dot third gen is playing music from Spotify it will jump to the next track without finishing the last track. This can happen at any point in the song.

Also sometimes when asking the echo to play music it will play silently. The Spotify app on my phone and the Alexa app shows the track playing but there is no audio.

Can anyone help?

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Skills & Games freeze alexa app
« Last post by reeve11 on May 25, 2019, 01:56:54 pm »
I reported this issue around October of last year, when it first started happening to me. There used to be a red indicator dot next to Skills and Games, and when you clicked to see why, it locked up before fully displaying the Skills and Games tab. I worked back and forth with level 2 support, providing information from my phone and app, and they told me after 6 weeks of this that they were aware of the problem and were working on it. This was nearly 7 months ago and NOTHING has happened except removing the red indicator next to Skills and Games, but the app still locks up. This app looks like it's not being worked on to the degree it should be. Support has been pathetically poor and never informed me WHY it occurred, despite asking. I'm on the phone with them again and tell me they never heard of this! Then, the agent told me it was resolved march 15th. The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing any more at Amazon. I'm providing more documents and history.. AGAIN, with probably the rudest and most condescending agent I've ever spoken to. She directed me to report it from the app and a new ticket is supposed to be created. I did, and get a response that I need to call the same number again, so I'm fighting their ridiculous support policies on which they can't even follow or know what to do. Amazon isn't going to succeed with anything at this rate. But, not to fear! I will get this reported come hell or high water! It seems Hell is already here...

They are great to work with.  I was looking for a ship's clock App that would chime the hour and half-hour as they do at sea.  No luck until   I asked them and they originated a skill which works great.

>it would be nice if Amazon would develop a program that chimes the hour.

Someone did.  It's called Audible Clock (www.audibleclock.com).
