If you own an Amazon Echo you know you can ask its voice actuated assistant, Alexa, to help you from everything to maintaining your shopping list to choosing your listening music.  The limitation was that Alexa couldn't reach out to other apps, but that's now changed.

IFTTT (acronymn for If This Then That) has announced the Alexa Channel that hosts "recipies" (scripts) that allow Alexa to interact with other apps.  You can have Alexa email your shopping list when you ask Alexa what's on it or you can have Alexa add the list to your Evernote app for example.  No doubt even more useful recipies will be available soon.
