MindMac - Better privacy-first, native ChatGPT app for macOS. New: v1.6.0 is out!

Hey everyone!

I wanted to share with you all a new macOS app that I recently developed which supports the ChatGPT API.

The app, called MindMac, allows you to easily access the ChatGPT API and start chatting with the chatbot right from your Mac devices. You can ask it questions, have it tell you jokes, or just have a casual conversation.

As a truly native macOS app, MindMac is designed to take full advantage of the Mac’s hardware and software capabilities. This means that it runs smoothly and efficiently, without any lag or performance issues. Additionally, MindMac’s interface is sleek and modern, with a clean design that’s easy on the eyes and intuitive to use. Whether you’re a power user or a casual user, you’ll appreciate the speed and responsiveness of MindMac, as well as its elegant and user-friendly interface. So if you’re looking for a high-performance, native macOS app that looks great and works seamlessly, MindMac is the perfect choice.

One of the things I love about this app is how easy it is to use. You don’t need any coding experience or technical knowledge to get started. All you need to do is download the app, sign up for an OpenAI API key, and start chatting.


See what features are included in the list below:

  • Support all ChatGPT models (GPT-3.5, GPT-3.5-16K, GPT-4, GPT-4-32K)
  • Instant Inline mode. Use MindMac directly in any other applications. No windows switching.
  • Customizable API endpoint and proxy. Support Azure OpenAI and more
  • Conversation style control (More Precise or More Creative)
  • Auto generate conversation title
  • Usage information (tokens and cost)
  • Light/Dark mode
  • Prompt template library
  • Occupation library
  • Context control
  • Fully customizable hotkey and shortcuts
  • Favorite chats
  • Chat history
  • Chat folders
  • Global search
  • And more

You can find full feature list at here.

I’m continuously working to enhance MindMac, and more exciting features are on the way. Giving MindMac a try if you’re looking for a fun and easy way to chat with an AI-powered chatbot. It’s a great way to pass the time and learn something new at the same time.

Thank you for reading and hope that you all have a fantastic experience with MindMac!

The app is fantastic! I tested it on my Mac and I’m thrilled with the convenient hotkeys and the Inline mode. I’ve actually purchased a license already. So, I do have a feature request: I kindly ask if it would be possible to add a global hotkey that allows for quick accessibility, similar to macOS’ spotlight.

PS: This comment was generated by the Inline mode.

Looks awesome! Great job with the UI. I just realized I missed out on the coupon code, but I’ll definitely consider paying for the Pro version after I fully try out the app. I’ve tried many apps in the past, but this one seems to be the best one yet so far!
