COMMENT

Welcome to issue #38. The Alexa apps were updated to support deep links recently. I didn't see an announcement. Did you? I discovered it because I test the apps when updates ship. Here is the iOS deep link to the Uber skill - alexa://#skills/amzn1.echo-sdk-ams.app.f9e938dc-cded-45dc-bf9d-2029d4de1aa3.

I have yet to discover a link that will enable a skill. I doubt that will be supported actually.

Drop me a note if you find or create any great resources for ASK/AVS Developers.
