DaveBot Chat Bot Walkthrough Review

DaveBot Chat Bot Image Picture
May 22, 2016 - DaveBot Chat Bot ( is a chatbot built by Dave Curry, the host of the podcast "Say Something Worth Stealing". The bot is built on the Smooch Bot Example which also happens to be used by EsterBot. It's more about his careers and some fun random facts and tidbits.

We did a through review of the bot to see how usable it was and what our thoughts on it was. Below is a sample walkthrough of our experience:

Step 1: Greetings from DaveBot

When we typed "Hi", we got this greeting from DaveBot.

Step 2: Tell Me About Dave

We tapped "Tell me about Dave" option and got more options to get more specifics on Dave Curry. We got 3 options: 1) Career, 2) Stealing, and 3) Link Pack. Note: if we typed "Career" or "Stealing", it is essentially the same as tapping the corresponding action button options.

Step 3: Career Option

Step 7: Tell Me a Joke

In the initial greeting, we tapped "Tell Me a Joke" and got a robot "joke" that only techie would appreciate. There were more action options: 1) Tell me about Dave, 2) More robot jokes, and 3) Tweet Dave. "Tell me about Dave" option was covered in step 2. "More robot jokes" directed us to a website where jokes are created by robots (kinda interesting). "Tweet Dave" is explained in the next step.

Step 8: Tweet Dave

In conclusion, we like the personal touch of DaveBot that Dave Curry created to allow us to get to know him more on a professional level with some personal touches along the way. It's a good start, but it would be awesome if he would incorporate recent podcasts into the options so that we could directly link to the podcast episodes based on a brief description - maybe that will happen in v0.2.
