    Installed the new Reverb app on my iPad today.

    After trying this, I am convinced Apple has to make some significant strides with Siri and soon, or its game over, at least for interactions outside the iOS sandbox. Very accurate and easy to use.

    How about they're retrieving a dbase full of Amazon accounts? Is it safe to use an app like that, with an user account often with Credit Card credentials? Just curious.

    Cheers

    Reverb is only given a token, never your Amazon credentials. The token is only good for accessing Alexa Voice Service. Your account is safe and Reverb isn't allowed to make any purchases with your Amazon account.

    Use Alexa or Google Home for a while, then use Siri. It'll feel like you've gone backwards in time. Siri is downright pathetic compared to the other options now available.

    Thank you for your reply, of course I would like to try it too. Is there a link available at Amazon for me to check your mentioned token technique? Appreciated!

    Cheers
