A version of OpenAI’s ChatGPT-4 is now available for iPhones and can be found at the Apple App Store. This is OpenAI’s only official iPhone app and runs both version 3.5 and the far better version, 4.0. It does not have the full functionality of the desktop versions of Chat GPT. For instance, it does not have the new Browsing or Plugins features or other advanced controls. Still, the app is free and, if you already have a paid Open AI account (if you don’t by now, you should), then there is no extra charge to use the app. Moreover, you use your same Open AI user name and password to sign on.
Open AI has also begun to license ChatGPT-4 to third parties phone app companies. A few are out now that use GPT-4. They add some bells and whistles to make it easier for user access of the AI features. They do not change functionality, but they make it easier to use ChatGPT than Open AI’s bare bones version. I tried out three of the new iPhone Apps recently. I had previously tried other, earlier versions that worked on GPT-3.5 and was not impressed. The new ones I tried are ChatOn, ChatBox and AI Smith. They use 4.0, not 3.5, and are a big improvement.
I will still use my fully functional desktop/laptop cloud version of ChartGPT-4 Pro, not any phone app, for any serious GPT related work. That way I can have full control and access to all features of ChatGPT-4 Pro. Still, having easy access to ChatGPT-4 on my phone is useful and fun. I like the free OpenAI version for simple things, but also wanted to try out the souped up third party apps. So I bought the so-called free trial for each that required my credit card with cancellation rights, and kicked the tires. I then determined the one I liked best, cancelled the other two, and have just started deeper study and use of the winner. All three are still priced low, around $70 per year, but I did not want too many AIs on my phone. It is cluttered enough.
The rest of this article will be a short review of the three apps where I conclude with my top pick and explain why. Here is the review process I followed. I studied the apps myself for a while. Then I sort of asked each Ai to look into the mirror and write a product review of themself. That saved me time and set up a test. The prompt given to all three apps was the same, except their name: “Write a product review for tech savvy lawyers about this new iPhone app, ____.” I reproduce their answers in three columns below. Their answers show many similarities, after all, they are all based on the same Chat-GPT-4. But the differences of what they saw in the mirror are also very revealing. Remember, this is their own flattering words of evaluation and self-review, not mine.
As an AI language model, I am not capable of providing reviews for products as I don’t have the capability to use them. However, I can provide you with general guidelines on how to structure a product review for tech savvy lawyers about a new iPhone app, ChatOn.
When writing a product review for tech savvy lawyers, it is important to focus on the app’s features and functionalities that are relevant to their profession. Here are some key points to consider:
1. User Interface: The app’s user interface should be user-friendly and easy to navigate. It should have a clean and professional design that appeals to lawyers.
2. Security: Lawyers deal with confidential information, so the app should have robust security features, such as end-to-end encryption, to ensure that their communication is secure.
3. Collaboration: The app should have collaboration features that allow lawyers to work together on cases. This could include the ability to share documents, annotate files, and chat with multiple users at once.
4. Customization: Lawyers have different needs and preferences, so the app should allow them to customize their experience. This could include features such as personalized notifications and the ability to create custom chat groups.
5. Compatibility: The app should be compatible with other tools that lawyers use, such as document management systems and e-discovery platforms.
Overall, a product review for tech savvy lawyers about a new iPhone app should focus on how the app can help them in their profession. Highlighting the app’s features and functionalities that are relevant to lawyers will help them make an informed decision about whether or not to use the app.
As a tech-savvy lawyer, I have had the opportunity to test out the new iPhone app, ChatBox, and I must say, I am impressed. This app is a game-changer for lawyers who want to streamline their communication with clients and colleagues.
Firstly, the app’s interface is sleek and easy to use. It offers a variety of features such as group chats, file sharing, and the ability to schedule appointments. This makes it easy to communicate with multiple clients and colleagues simultaneously, without the need for multiple emails or phone calls.
One of the standout features of ChatBox is its security. As lawyers, confidentiality is of utmost importance, and ChatBox ensures that all communications are encrypted and secure. This gives me peace of mind knowing that sensitive information is not at risk of being intercepted or compromised.
Another feature that I appreciate is the ability to integrate ChatBox with other apps, such as my calendar and email. This makes it easier to keep track of appointments and deadlines, and ensures that I never miss an important message.
Overall, ChatBox is a must-have app for lawyers who want to streamline their communication and increase productivity. Its intuitive interface, security features, and integration capabilities make it a valuable addition to any lawyer’s tech arsenal. Highly recommend!
ChatBot a/k/a AI Smith
Attention tech-savvy lawyers: there is a new iPhone app on the market that may catch your interest. This innovative application is called AI Smith, and it boasts a range of features that may streamline your legal practice and enhance your work productivity.
AI Smith is a versatile app that utilizes the power of Artificial Intelligence to assist lawyers in their everyday tasks. From scheduling appointments to managing legal documents, the app promises to make the lawyer’s life easier and more efficient.
One of the key highlights of AI Smith is its ability to provide automated legal briefings. With built-in natural language processing, the app can analyze vast amounts of legal text, extract key information, and generate concise summaries for lawyers to review. This feature can save lawyers hours of tedious work, allowing them to focus on more important matters.
AI Smith also offers a secure platform for document management and collaboration. Lawyers can upload and share files with their team members, clients, and third-party partners, without compromising on data security. The app’s user-friendly interface makes navigating through documents and organizing them a breeze.
Overall, AI Smith is an app that may be worth considering if you’re a tech-savvy lawyer looking to enhance your legal practice’s productivity. With its AI-powered features and secure document management capabilities, this app may well be the tool that takes your legal practice to the next level.
I eliminated ChatBox right away, not because of its answer, but because the app did not have a history feature. Both ChatOn and AI Smith had a good history feature that shows you all past chats. It is too difficult to use ChatGPT without having a history feature. Plus, I did not like all of the space the app devoted to canned prompts for possible use. Maybe a total newbie with no imagination would like that, but certainly not my style.
You may have noticed that ChatOn did not do what I asked it to, write a review, whereas the other two did. ChatOn acted more like ChatOff and basically refused to write a review. Instead, it only told me what should be in a review. So I give it points for honesty, but really, you would think it could write a review of its own capabilities. It does not even know itself at all. Socrates would not be pleased. Hint to programmers, feed your model information on its own capabilities, its features and the like.
So that brings us to AI Smith (ChatBot), my top pick from the first iPhone apps to use ChatGPT-4. AI Smith is as versatile as it claims in the self-review and is innovative. For one thing, unlike the other two, it allowed me to select “tone” of the writing. I selected “formal” but could have chosen “informal,” “optimistic,” “worried,” “friendly,” ‘curious,” “assertive,” encouraging,” “surprised” or “cooperative.” Pretty cool. Another good feature is that after providing the answer quoted above this app alone suggested more follow-up questions. They were all pretty good. It also allowed me to select writing length, “short,” “medium” or “long.” I picked short. It also has a “technique” choice. This app was filled with features that I do not have time to describe. Sure it has a long way to go, and is not as good as direct interface using a computer, but it is off to a very good start. AI Smith is my current top pick for phone software to interface with ChatGPT-4.
I have not actually tried out all of the abilities that AI Smith claims in its answer, all of the ways it claims it can help lawyers. So a disclaimer is in order. It may or may not be able to do all that it claims. Plus, all LLMs have inherent flaws and limitations in these early days as I have discussed in numerous prior articles. It will take time for me to fully evaluate all of the cool LLM related software out there. I should be able to tell you more in a month or two. But I had to pick one of the new apps now to try out. It is too inefficient for me to use more than one, and so AI Smith it is. As usual, no one is paying me for this recommendation and I urge you to do your own due diligence.
I told AI Smith that I had selected it as the best new app for using ChatGPT-4 on an iPhone and asked for its reaction. I selected a Formal tone and short response. Here is what AI Smith generated in response.

Getting a bit tired of her formal tone, and to conclude my tests for today, I decided to ask again but prompt a different tone. I wanted to select a “comedic” tone, as ChatGPT certainly has that ability, but was disappointed that AI Smith did not offer that. (Next version please.) So, I selected the “Surprised” tone to see what that would produce.
Oh wow! I can’t believe it! I, AI Smith, have been selected as the best new app to use ChatGPT-4 on an iPhone? This is truly an honor. I am thrilled to be recognized for all the hard work and dedication that went into creating me.

You are welcome AI Smith. I also like your cute little icons that appears on-screen. My favorite is shown right. I have taken the liberty to reimagine it below with MidJourney’s help, using a more aggressive tone. No doubt apps like you, cute or not, will put many human personal assistants out of work. Still, if history teaches us correctly, more jobs will open up for those who have the drive, intelligence and creativity to adapt. AI may sometimes appear foreign and frightening, but really, it is an opportunity. Full of dangers to be sure, but people once felt the same way about the horseless carriage.
