Hi,
On the iPhone side, you just need the Alexa app. You can manage multiple Amazon 
devices through the Alexa app.
To answer the question about the usefulness of the Show in relation to other 
Amazon devices, that would depend on the individual.
I can think of several uses for mine if someone sighted had one. But I don't 
really have a desire for one just now because I already have a Dot and an Echo. 
And I don't feel a need to bring up YouTube videos that I cannot see by voice. 
Or video chats I can't see. Or send video messages I can't see. I can do that 
on skype. Laughs!
One good thing that amazon is doing though is that every skill that is being 
developed for the show is being required to be functional for all amazon Echo 
devices without video. So the screen is a bonus but not required for any skill 
even if developed for the Show.

I have a couple of the DOTS, but would like to know more about the show. can 
anyone explain how it works and what it does and if it is potentially useful, 
tickly, with low or no vision in mind?
