Introduction to Using ChatGPT 3.5 and Daily Interface for iOS Productivity

The recent release of ChatGPT 3.5 by Anthropic has opened up new possibilities for integrating AI into mobile productivity workflows. In this post, we will explore how iOS users can leverage ChatGPT and image generation through DALL-E integration to enhance productivity without reliance on paid third-party apps.

We will provide an overview of the capabilities, step-by-step setup instructions, examples of use cases via Assistive Touch, and conclusions including recommendations for next steps. The goal is to demonstrate the power of AI for on-device productivity so you can benefit without ongoing subscription fees.

Overview of the ChatGPT iOS Shortcut Capabilities

The iOS shortcut referenced in this post serves as a wrapper for the ChatGPT API, allowing you to trigger queries and receive responses directly on your iPhone or iPad. Rather than using a separate app, the shortcut is invoked via Assistive Touch which enables quick access anywhere on your device. You can summarize long articles or documents, rewrite content for different audiences or purposes, generate new content from scratch, translate text, and more. The shortcut also enables seamless integration with the DALL-E API for generating images to visualize text prompts.

Integration with Other Productivity Apps Like Notion and DALL-E

The iOS shortcut eliminates reliance on paid subscriptions or limited API calls from apps like Notion. Instead of being constrained by native AI functionality in these apps, you can leverage the full power of ChatGPT via your own API key right from the Assistive Touch interface. This also enables creative workflows leveraging both language via ChatGPT and visuals via DALL-E in a more scalable, cost-effective manner. You can iterate on generated images by providing new text prompts without consuming additional API resources.

Step-by-Step Setup Instructions for the iOS Shortcut

Getting started with the ChatGPT iOS productivity shortcut is simple. Just follow these steps:

  1. Download the shortcut via the link provided in the video description

  2. Tap the 'Get Shortcut' button when prompted after opening the link on your iPhone

  3. Configure your own OpenAI API key for ChatGPT and DALL-E access. This will enable full functionality without limitations.

  4. Customize any shortcut settings or options to suit your individual needs and preferences.

  5. Enable Assistive Touch under Accessibility settings if you have not already. This puts a floating button providing quick access to the shortcut's capabilities.

That's it! You're now ready to start using ChatGPT 3.5 and DALL-E through the new shortcut. Next we'll cover some example use cases and how to trigger functionality via Assistive Touch.

Triggering the iOS Shortcut via Assistive Touch

Single Tap, Double Tap, and Long Press Actions

With Assistive Touch enabled, you will see a floating button providing instant access to the AI productivity shortcut. Some quick examples of configured actions include:

  • Single tap to open the full shortcut menu
  • Double tap to capture a screenshot for OCR text extraction
  • Long press to trigger the ChatGPT query flow This enables flexibility based on your context and needs in the moment. You can tap to access the full menu, quickly screenshot content from any app for processing via AI, or long press to send text that is already in your clipboard to ChatGPT.

Request Summarization and Rewriting Examples

Here are some examples leveraging long press on the Assistive Touch button when you already have text in your clipboard to process via ChatGPT:

  • Summarize a long news article in simple bullet points
  • Rewrite instructions from complex to simple language for a general audience
  • Analyze a paragraph and output just the key points as a list
  • Generate a tweet-length summary from a detailed scientific document As you can see, the possibilities are vast - from summarization, to translations, analysis, content generation, and more. You provide the text input via your clipboard and ChatGPT handles the heavy lifting, no matter which app you're currently using.

Leveraging iOS Shortcut Instead of Paid Third-Party Apps

Overcoming Notion API Limits

Apps like Notion offer built-in AI functionality, but free accounts come with strict usage limits. As an example, here's how the iOS shortcut enables practically unlimited use of ChatGPT even within Notion:

  1. Compose your thoughts in a Notion document
  2. Select the text you want to process via AI
  3. Copy it to your clipboard
  4. Long press the Assistive Touch button to activate the shortcut
  5. Choose your desired ChatGPT query type (summarize, rewrite, etc.)
  6. ChatGPT will process your request and output the response text, automatically saving it to your clipboard
  7. Paste the output right back into your Notion doc This quick flow allows you to integrate the power of ChatGPT 3.5 into your workflows, overcoming restrictions from apps relying on in-house AI APIs with limited capacity for free users.

Generating Images with DALL-E

In addition to text processing via ChatGPT, the shortcut also enables easy integration with DALL-E for AI image generation. For example:

  1. Capture a screenshot of an app UI design mockup via Assistive Touch
  2. Choose the 'Visualize Screenshot with DALL-E' option when you long press the button
  3. DALL-E will automatically extract any text and generate a related image
  4. Save or share the image as needed You can continually iterate by generating variations on the images based on updated text prompts from ChatGPT or extracted from additional screenshots.
