Your App Lady
Series 1 Episode 24
Welcome to series 1 episode 24 of the Your App Lady Podcast!
All about apps and tech that I love and use every day.
On each episode, I’ll talk about recent tech news, recommend apps that I use myself and leave you with a great tech tip.
An update for the WhatsApp iOS app (update 2.18.31) includes a new “Delete for everyone” feature, available at the limit of one hour, eight minutes and 16 seconds long after the message was sent. This allows users to delete messages if they regret sending them.
This is a huge change from the previous 8 minute time period of allowed deletion of messages. The article states that there is no news of this feature for Android version of the app.
Featured App: Lists for Writers
Lists for Writers is available for iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Nook, Blackberry and Windows.
Lists for Writers is an app that helps with creative writing. The app is a list of lists! You can build a story by choosing from the various lists for characters, settings, etc.
If your Alexa is having trouble understanding you, you can train her to your voice. Currently this feature is only available on US devices.
The Echo, Echo Dot and Echo Plus all support Amazon voice training. Voice training can help Alexa understand your voice better. To do voice training with your Alexa, go to the Alexa app -> Settings -> Accounts -> Voice Training -> Start Session. You will then read 25 different phrases to help Alexa understand your voice better.
