Version 2.0.2
Review by brian163

Holy cow, this exists and works - With four Amazon Echo Dots already scattered around the house, I hesitated to buy more for the kid’s rooms. Now I can give them a “virtual” Dot that works anywhere in the house. Sure, they have to click to activate listening but aren’t they in front of a computer or an iOS device all the time anyway? ;-) I hope this stays free but something tells me it won’t… One feature request I would suggest is they implement an option for this to run from the menu bar and hide the dock. That would align much better with it’s intended use and the way Apple implemented Siri in macOS Sierra.

Review by NW102

App won’t uninstall - I downloaded this app to my MacBook Pro, and the only way I can use the app is to give the app site my Amazon ID and password. I’ve been trying to uninstall the app and I can’t get it to uninstall. I would not have downloaded it if I knew it required my Amazon Id and password and now can’t get rid of the app.
