30,000+ Skills released… and at least a few Actions… avast majority of them are likely boring and will get very little use. This is the reality of any ecosystem, where the short head gather most of the attention.
However, there are a few quick ways to differentiate an experience from the vast majority:
- Don’t rely on Text-to-speech — use real voice recordings
- Use pleasant sounds to indicate interaction
- Use music transitions
- Be quick… get to the point as quickly as possible
- Engage curiosity… what’s inside the mystery box?
I’ll be trying to apply these principals in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
