BoltAI is a beautiful and powerful AI chat app for Mac. It integrates ChatGPT and other large language models (LLMs) deeply into your workflows so you don’t have to go back and forth with the ChatGPT web UI.
BoltAI Main Chat UI
BoltAI comes from my pet peeve of switching back and forth between ChatGPT web and native Mac apps like Xcode or Apple Notes.
Many tasks are repetitive, so I built BoltAI as a way to automate these tasks, right within those native apps.
BoltAI’s main features
BoltAI is powerful with a lot of features, but it also comes with a learning curve.
There are 3 primary ways you can use BoltAI:
Using the main Chat UI
Using AI Command
Using the Inline feature
In this documentation, you will learn how best to use these features for your workflow.
This is similar to ChatGPT with advanced features such as Web Search, custom GPT parameters, more AI models, custom System Instruction, Chat History Search…
The AI Command feature allows you to invoke AI from any highlighted text.
To use the AI Command, highlight the text you need BoltAI to help you with, trigger the shortcut key (default Control+Space), and choose a command.
BoltAI supports 32 AI Commands by default: Text Summarization, Translation, Explain Code, etc. You can always add more custom AI Commands.
This is the more advanced way to use BoltAI. You write down what you want, invoke a shortcut key, and then let BoltAI do the work.
