Do you already use something for tracking your shopping list? And if so, do you know if they have an API available? Unfortunately while both Amazon and Google have excellent support for shopping lists via their voice assistants, they are a ‘walled garden’ and don’t provide API access to get that data out.

I have Show 15. 90% of SharpTools stuff works on the built-in Silk browser. (haven’t figured out allowing mixed-mode content). As @josh noted, the downside is that Show devices always return to the home screen after a couple of minutes. As a workaround, you can tell Alex to “Open Silk” as you approach the device to bring SharpTools back. It’s not ideal but it functions.
Likewise. I nabbed one yesterday and I’m currently evaluating it. The forced return to home screen may be a deal breaker for me. Also, I currently have all my dashboards configured for a tablet screen ratio. The Echo 15 is 16:9 ratio and doesn’t sit well with my current dashboards (and I don’t feel like creating alternate versions just for the Echo).
I’ve found the show mode annoying and don’t care too much for the limited capabilities on the device so I’m going to look into side loading fully kiosk like I did on the fire tablet. The only reason I kept it in show mode was to get video calls but I’ve found I’m able to do it without show mode.
