New Release: Stock Market Help – Alexa Skill

26 Nov
2019

Stock Market Help contains definitions for an abundance of stock market terms for beginners, students, professionals, and anyone interested in investing. Often when listening to stock market shows, videos or podcasts you’ll hear terminology used throughout as investors and analysts are speaking. This can also happen when you’re reading an article about a stock or the stock market and you’ll notice that you’ve come across terms that you may have forgotten or not know at all. With this skill you’ll be able to better understand what’s being said about a specific company or the market in general quickly and effectively. Equip yourself with the terminology knowledge that’s necessary to better understand the stock market and investing with the Stock Market Help skill.

To use this skill simply open it and say the name of a term that you want a definition for. This Stock Market Help help skill contains Stock Market Help Pro, which is the premium upgrade content that’s available as an in-skill purchase which gives you access to several ratio terms and definitions. However, without the upgrade, this skill still has a lot of terms in its catalog.

Examples of terms in this skill initially include; hedge, margin, call option, put option, short selling, bear market, bull market, averaging down, protective put, limit order, and a lot more!

Enjoy! Take care!

Overview of What I’ve Been Working On & Thinking About

30 Sep
2019

Hey!! It’s been a while since I’ve posted something on my site here, and it feels neglected! September has been one of the best(one main reason and some others) and worst(due to one situation) months of my life outside of software creation, but that’s not entirely the reason why I haven’t posted anything in a few months. I’m good overall though and not on the brink of self destruction or anything like that. One of the reasons I haven’t posted in months is because we bought a house a few months ago(yay!) and I’ve been getting settled in and working on some things here and there. Thankfully it was a well done renovation so I haven’t had to fix much. Most of the updates have been personal preference projects and some security measures. Nice neighborhood, but you can’t really be too careful in the world we live in. Anyways, since this site is about my software let’s dive into a quick overview of what’s going on with my software creation.

˙Mobile app! I’m still working on the nutrition app that I’ve been working on & off with this year. I’ve completed the major process of obtaining verified information and organizing it into broad sections. Now I’m in the process of expanding the information and converting it into a educational format. At the rate that I’m working on it now I think I’ll be finished with this aspect of the app by sometime in November. I’ll be working on UI design after finishing that, but I do have the look of it in my mind so hopefully it won’t be too hard to convert. I’ve been working on straying away from my perfectionism mentality that can sometimes hamper me from moving forward effectively. I’m hoping to have the entire app finished and released by the end of this year.

˙Amazon Alexa! On another note I’ve been thinking about Alexa skills again. I joined an Alexa ISP(In-Skill Purchasing) challenge, but it’s not mandatory for me so I can back out without any penalty if I decide not to continue with it. I’ll either be updating one of my current Alexa skills with some additional useful content or creating a new skill with some additional expanded content. Also in regards to Alexa skills, I updated the thumbnail for most of my Alexa skill YouTube videos. I just added some minor additions but they look much better than before. Previously the thumbnails were just of a random moment in the video without any added images or text. I somewhat recently started using an app called Canva which is great for creating promo banners, headers, thumbnails & etc. One of the podcasts I listen to sometimes called “NPR How I Built This” has an episode with the story behind Canva which is really neat, and made me like the app even more. I’ve also been using it for creating some content outside of software, but I may post about later.

New thumbnails! (Click image to go to this Youtube playlist.)

˙New project! Also in my mind is my next startup, which is app related, but separate from 8-Bit Avrin Apps aka basically Avrin Ross. I’m really excited to start working on it more but I want to finish the educational nutrition app I’ve been working on first and then also the possible new Alexa skill or update that I mentioned above. I’ll post more about this startup once I’ve got more to show or when I’ve set aside some time to write about it.

Until next time ∞

Such a wonderful time to be a fan of international soccer with these tournaments going on at the same time! Wow! I’ve been watching different matches and highlights when I can from all of the tournaments, but the Women’s World Cup 2019 has been my favorite to watch so far. In the Women’s World Cup I’m mainly rooting for U.S.A., but I’ve also been slightly going for Brazil(I know they’re out as of now) & England. In Copa America I’m mainly going for Brazil, but I’ve also slightly been going for Venezuela(go Josef Martinez!), and Paraguay(go Miguel Almiron!…but they’re out as of now). In the Gold Cup I’m mainly going for U.S.A, but I’m definitely aware that Mexico may possibly be the best team in this tournament. The final match could even be Mexico vs U.S.A if they both continue to win their respective matches!

Regardless of who wins each tournament, this has truly been some great soccer to watch so far and I’m looking forward to the remaining matches in these tournaments! Also, Euro 2020 qualifiers have been going on! Wow! So much soccer!! Enjoy!

(: *Yes I know soccer is referred to as Football/Futbol in countries outside of the U.S.* 🙂 )

Several New Videos Added to YouTube & Website

15 Mar
2019

One of the goals in my 2019 Manifesto is to promote my apps more with video. To start this goal I made a list of the apps I wanted to make videos of. I know how significant and beneficial it can be to have video to showcase something so I wanted to do that for some of my apps that I hadn’t made videos for yet. I also decided to make a video for some of my apps that already had one because they’ve improved since release with noticeable updates and I thought those changes needed to be displayed beyond just screenshots. As of now I’ve created & uploaded videos for all the apps that I had on my list. I also made videos for some of my Alexa Skills as well. Below is a list of all the mobile apps and Alexa skills that have new videos uploaded on my YouTube channel along with their respective links.
