Ann: "Alexa, enable the My Notebook skill" to take notes in Evernote

Idea

I've just published an Amazon Echo skill which lets you create Evernote notes.

To enable it, say "Alexa, enable the My Notebook skill".  You'll need to link to your Evernote account in the Alexa app (it just asks for permission to write notes).

Then you can say "Alexa, tell My Notebook I've hidden the kids ipads under the sofa".

It will respond with "I've added I've hidden the kids ipads under the sofa to Evernote",.

Now you'll never have the embarrassing situation where you confiscate your kids' screens and then forget where you put them.  Or is that just me?

Very cool, Damien!

For folks to know: notes created by this service will go into your default Personal notebook.

(I did have it misinterpret my speech a few times in creating note text, but that's Alexa's fault, not yours!)

Damien- any way to turn on date/time stamps? I'd like to use this to log ideas, events, etc.

Can you append items to one notebook please!

Wonderful skill. Thanks

That's a great idea. I don't yet have Alexa and I am looking into whether or not it would be useful for my house. Specifically I would want it for a skill similar to this. How would you recall the note? For example could you ask "Alexa, where did I hide the kids' ipads?" or would it be something like "Alexa, pull up the note on where I hid the ipads", and she would read back the whole note? It would be an amazing tool for Alzheimer's patients and others with memory issues to have a tool that could "remember" things for them. Ex: my grandfather was unable to remember if he had fed the dog in the morning and sometimes ended up feeding him several times. As he was feeding the dog he could tell Alexa that he fed the dog breakfast today and ask her later if he had. I could tell Alexa that I put the extra batteries in the far right hand drawer of the kitchen and when I needed them I could ask her where I put them...
