What’s New

Version 1.2

New: Speak message text. If you tap on a message, an action bar appears below that will let you speak the message aloud. (This was actually in 1.1, but I forgot to mention it.)
New: Persona prompt now shows at the top of a message thread. Editable in the chat settings
New: Button to easily clear persona prompt in the conversation settings.
New, but not exciting: Added the version number to the bottom of the Settings screen

Changed: Switched the 'Settings' and Gear icons. Settings = App Settings. Gear in a conversation = settings for that conversation.
Changed: Changed "Default prompt" to "System prompt" in conversation settings, since that is what it is called in the API

Keep the feedback coming! It definitely helps me prioritize what to work on next!

The best, cleanest, privacy-focused app available for ChatGPT

Hey ! Just wanted to say how awesome your ChatAI app is. I've tried a few other apps on IOS, but they always seemed overpriced or had some kind of predatory pricing/data model. Your app is seriously a breath of fresh air! I love that it uses my own API and saves chats locally, and the native interface is so much faster than the web interface. It's also great that it's a lot cheaper than having to pay for ChatGPT Plus just for the reliability and speed (which, after recent events with OpenAI, is questionable anyway).

I can't believe that you made this app for yourself and decided to share it with others. You’re awesome :).

Thank you SO MUCH for creating such a fantastic app! I'll definitely be recommending it to my friends and family.

Just a couple ideas for the future:
1. Implementing a dark-mode
2. Being able to save custom, user-made personality prompts in the existing menu you created (to avoid having to copy and paste the settings over one once you run out of tokens in a conversation)
3. Perhaps sync conversations over iCloud? Not sure if that’s possible or not.
4. When running on an M1 Mac, hitting Enter on the keyboard does not send the conversation (you have to manually click send each time).

Edit: oh and I forgot to mention - even though there isn’t a native macOS app yet, it actually works really well on there, too :).

Solid, great start.

I can see this being useful and I’ll probably use it daily. It works well so far and has no glaring issues. Only thing I noticed was that sometimes the settings button wont work after exiting the settings and trying to get back in, but a quick restart fixes it. Not sure what causes that but something that small will likely be fixed in the next update or so.

I would like to suggest adding a couple features if they aren’t already on the roadmap;

model-specific token cost calc - a counter at the top of our chats that allow us to see the API cost incurred from the beginning of the chat to the current message.

the ability to remove, or preferably archive certain messages from a chat so they don’t affect the chat history. Similar to how messages from the AI and the user can be deleted in Quora’s Poe AI app.

A context cleanse button like Poe AI has, which separates the chat context into a new one but doesnt wipe old messages. (with undo or deletable)

A profile icon for each chat, just to give a customizable visual indicator from the main screen and some personable quality in-chat.

A consistent user icon that the user can choose, or perhaps also the option for a user icon for each chat.

I’m not sure how it could be done, but if you could give your app the functionality for users to select text within the chat bubbles to highlight and copy particle segments, it saves the user the time and experience of having to paste an entire chat bubble into their notes to extract a segment.

Thanks for making this app! A great resource to come!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. Definitely working on these things, and have some ideas to help with the token management and visualization of cost, context, etc.

Text selection is in 1.3, but it was rejected by Apple, so a little delayed, but resubmitted already.

1.3 also has the ability to edit and delete messages from a chat, so that will help a tad on managing conversations.

I plan to get a lot more control and visualization of the API limitations built out, so there isn’t mystery about what will work.

Thanks again for the feedback.
