Get ready for an unparalleled AI experience with Athena, the AI assistant powered by OpenAI’s ChatGPT, designed exclusively for Apple devices like Mac, iPhone, and iPad. To join and elevate your AI experience, all you need is a Mac with macOS 13+, an iPhone with iOS 16+, or an iPad with iPadOS 16.1+ and to fill out this form.

Unveiling the aura of Athena

You might wonder, "Why should I switch to Athena when I can just use ChatGPT on the web?" Well, let us introduce you to the extraordinary benefits Athena brings to the table, elevating your AI experience to a whole new level.

Athena vs. ChatGPT: The Game Changer

While ChatGPT’s web app is great, it comes with certain limitations:

  • A constant internet connection is needed to access previous conversations
  • More data is consumed every time the page is loaded
  • The UI can be clunky, especially on mobile devices
  • Opening the app takes effort: launching a browser, adding a new tab, navigating to ChatGPT, and potentially having to log in

Athena has none of these limitations thanks to it being a fully native app. But beyond the simple benefits of being native Athena also brings new features to the table that the ChatGPT app does not have like:

  • Built-in tips for crafting effective prompts, perfect for beginners and experts alike, with "snippets" to kickstart your creative journey
  • The power to tailor the response precision and creativity to your liking
  • Enhanced customization options for organizing your topics with titles and icons and eventually folders
  • Stage manager support on iPad, allowing you to manage multiple instances of Athena at once
  • No need to log in—Athena works straight out of the box

This is only the beginning

More incredible features are on the way, exclusively made possible by Athena's native app capabilities. Join us for an exhilarating journey as we continue to develop Athena and provide robust support for months and years to come.
