Version 3 of Xatkit just released

Jordi Cabot @jcabot

We continue the development of our open source chatbot development platform

This new version includes initial support for Alexa, the first voice service we integrate in our platform.

We will be trying now to promote this new platform to see if, at least, we get a broader visibility for the platform (which, of course, we hope will lead to more consulting opportunities on top of it)

    Hi Jordi, good job with your new release!
    I've just checked out the website and have a couple of points:

    1. It's good that you have an "Examples" page where potential early adopters could find the use cases of the software right away. This was the first page I went to after entering the site and I like the case with charts made by talking to a chat bot.
    2. Bearing that in mind, it was not obvious to me how Xatkit is different from other chatbot software from the first pages. I'm not an expert (and I think other people you will show this to will also probably not be sophisticated in this), so showing me why you're better than others is probably a good thing to have -- you have the features on the landing, but maybe highlighting how these make you better than competition will be good.

      Thanks a lot for your comment Valentine.

      In the landing page, just after the features, there is the section "10 reasons to love xatkit".

      If you didn't see it, we should make sure they are highlighted. But if you did see those reasons, didn't they sound convincing enough?
