What is Chat GPT-3 & Chat GPT-4

Developed by OpenAI, Both Chat GPT-3 & GPT-4 are types of technology (AI language model) that uses natural language input to generate text that resembles human language.

It operates by utilizing a vast collection of diverse texts for training, and then employs that training to generate text that corresponds to the given context and prompt.

How to use Chat GPT3 on your iPhone

Lets explore how you can use the functions of Chat GPT-3 within your iPhone browser or App.

The AI language model uses a neural network machine learning model to take input text and generate the most useful result based on its predictions.

Once you login, you can begin using the Chat GPT-3 app the same way you would in a browser, but with more screen space and an intuitive layout without any distractions.

Once you log in for the first time, you may need to exit the app by swiping up from the bottom of the screen and then swiping up on the app. When you restart the app, you can access it by tapping on “New Chat.

 If you are a Chat GPT-3 Plus user, you have the option to select between two models: Default and Turbo. Based on my experience, Turbo appears to deliver faster responses and is optimized for speed.

Connecting chat GPT-3 from iPhone to Siri

SiriGPT is a voice assistant created with Shortcuts (on iOS).  

With an API key from OpenAI and the Shortcut app, ChatGPT, the chatbot version that is powered by GPT-3, can now be used on an iPhone. 

This allows for a combination of Siri for common tasks and ChatGPT for generating text, providing the best of both worlds.

 The first step is to sign up for a ChatGPT account, which is free and takes a couple of minutes. Then, the user needs to create a custom Siri shortcut in the Shortcuts app and generate an API key linking the shortcut with their ChatGPT account. The Siri Pro ChatGPT shortcut allows for quicker and more direct responses than regular Siri

Paste your API key in the top section of the page where it says “Ask for Text”, then change the name of the shortcut to “Siri Pro Mode”. Tap “Done” and launch the shortcut. Siri Pro Mode will run through the shortcut, allowing you to access Chat GPT and receive smarter responses from Siri.

Downsides of using the Chat GPT-3 App on iPhone

The Chat GPT-3 app on iOS devices (iPhone & iPad) have a few disadvantages. This is because it’s not an official app from the app store, but a custom created app. 

One of the downfalls of the app is that sessions may expire, which requires users to terminate the app and tap the icon again

This could be a reasonable inconvenience, depending on how frequently the app is used. 

Another drawback is that some users may have privacy and safety concerns when installing a profile configuration on their iPhone or iPad, which is required to make the Chat GPT-3 website work as an iOS app. 

While inspecting the shortcuts code, there were no issues found, but it is strongly recommended that users review the code before installing to ensure that it is just a series of shortcuts the iPhone makes – I didn’t see anything that could cause any issues, but of course anything is possible.

The main limitation of using the Chat GPT-3 app on iPhone is that only one profile configuration can be used at a time. 

This means that if you install an app through a shortcut that uses a profile configuration, you cannot install multiple apps with different configurations. 

For instance, if you want to use the Chat GPT-3 app and another app that requires a profile configuration, you cannot use both simultaneously. This may be a significant drawback for users who rely on multiple apps that use profile configurations.

Lastly, there’s the issue of its potential for bias and lack of control over the generated output, which is also an issue on any platform you use it on (ex. Windows, Mac, iOS, Android)

How to get Chat GPT app on Android

Since there is no native Chat GPT app for Android, it is accessed through a web browser.

The first step is to go to and create an account by entering an email address, selecting “I’m not a robot,” and verifying a phone number.

After logging in to Chat GPT, users can ask the AI chatbot to generate unique content, blog post, questions, conversations, or another form of AI or natural language processing for text generation.

Chat GPT has a sidebar that shows the chat history, options for dark mode, a Discord link, and frequently asked questions and answers (which can even be explored through conversational AI).

The chatbot can generate content for Facebook ads, essays, jokes, video scripts, and more. Users can provide feedback to Chat GPT and regenerate responses. 


Is there a Chat GPT 3 app on iPhone or android?

There is no official Chat GPT-3 app available for iPhone or Android. However, you can create a shortcut on your iPhone using the official Shortcuts app that allows you to use Chat GPT-3 in a similar way to an app.

Additionally, some third-party developers may create apps that make use of the Chat GPT-3 API, but these would not be official apps from OpenAI. Chat GPT-3 works on all models of iPhone and Android that have a modern web browser like Chrome, Safari, and Microsoft edge.
