ChatGPT, the hyper-disruptive language AI tool now has an app for iOS. Open AI has announced the launch of the ChatGPT application in the United States on Thursday. The launch of the app comes six months after the tool was released for the web. ChatGPT acquired 100 million users in 2 months, a feat which took TikTok 9 months to achieve. Between February and April 2023 the site had 1.8 billion visitors per month.

It has been trained on a diverse range of texts to generate coherent and contextually relevant answers. In fact, one of the last two sentences was written by ChatGPT. The launch of ChatGPT has given people open and free access to a powerful AI tool and it has also prompted the rise of many AI tools that generate textual or visual responses to prompts.
