Alexa Skill Development

Custom voice-enabled applications for smoother and faster business operations


Over 100 million Alexa-enabled “smart speakers” have been sold worldwide.

Two-thirds of smart speaker owners use their smartphones less thanks to the advances in voice recognition.

Not only are consumers buying these products, but the ease of use is making them an integral part of daily life. If you are looking to build an app, consider developing an Alexa Skill to enrich your users’ experience and serve a growing audience. Or better yet, let Unstung Media do it for you.

We like to think of Alexa Skills as the apps of the Amazon Echo ecosystem. Their goals are often is to answer a question (or series of questions), respond to a command (turn off the lights in a smart home), or start an audio program (i.e. ‘play music’ or ‘start a workout’). We develop Alexa Skills that will become vital ways users interact with other aspects of your app’s key features.

If you are building an information-rich database, we can create an Alexa Skill to help users easily navigate it. If you have a news app, let Alexa give your users daily updates. No matter what your product is, Amazon Echo voice integration can enhance your current offering.


Connected Hardware Is The Future.

iOS App Development

Native iOS app development is about embracing frameworks and patterns from Apple. We work with all iOS APIs and know the Human Interface Guidelines backwards and forwards.

Working with iOS back when it was iPhone OS, we know the platform—and the iOS community—extremely well. We write all apps in Swift using frameworks like UIKit, ARKit, SpriteKit, and SceneKit, depending on the kind of app we are building.

We're also fluent in the best libraries created by the larger iOS community. These include, but are not limited to, Alamofire for networking, SwiftyJSON for parsing data, Kingfisher for downloading and caching images, and CocoaPods for managing external libraries. We also have an extensive set of internal libraries we leverage for our customers to ensure we don't regularly repeat common, non-proprietary code.

Our team takes particular pride in ensuring our designs are properly brought to life. We use tools like Zeplin to translate visuals into pixel-perfect code. Our development team members often incorporate tasteful, fun animations that also dramatically add to the overall user experience of our apps.
