MindMac - Better privacy-first, native ChatGPT app for macOS. New: GPT-4-Vision and Internet Browsing

At present, users can only upload image files to MindMac in order to utilize the GPT-4-Vision model and ask questions about the image, such as extracting content or writing code. However, I am currently working on expanding the support to include other file types, including csv. Please stay tuned for upcoming updates.

I just discovered this application, this looks great so far. Adding Brave Search api would be nice. One thing I would like is the ability to add function calls. I use function calling for extracting data, not really for actually calling functions. It would be a nice to have. I will be purchasing shortly.

When will this be on the Mac App Store?

At this time, I do not have any intentions to submit the app to the Mac App Store due to Apple’s requirement to remove the Inline mode feature. However, I may consider submitting a lite version to the Mac App Store at a later date.

Happy Lunar New Year 2024. Wishing you success, good luck and good fortune this year of the Dragon.

To celebrate, we are giving away MindMac Personal lifetime license to 24 people. Just retweet this post and follow @MindMacApp to join. Winners will be announced on February 14, 2024.
