OpenAI’s ChatGPT iOS app has 500,000 downloads, making it one of the most popular apps on Apple’s App Store in the United States in 2023 and 2022. According to new data.ai research, ChatGPT is among the top-performing applications of 2022 and 2023, topped only by the February 2022 launch of Former US President Donald Trump’s Twitter clone, Truth Social.
ChatGPT iOS App is Now Available in 11 More Countries
OpenAI has announced that the ChatGPT iOS app is now available in 11 additional countries, including Albania, Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, Brazil, South Korea, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Nigeria, and Nicaragua. The AI company also promised to make the software available on Android smartphones and in many more countries in the near future. The viral chatbot achieved 100 million active users in just two months after its public introduction, although the most popular app TikTok took much longer.
Because of the popularity of ChatGPT, various bogus smartphone apps have been created, attempting to deceive people into paying for exorbitant subscriptions to access their AI. The increased competition among AI chatbot apps was supposed to make life difficult for CbatGPT, but the release of the official apps demolished all such expectations as it emerged as the top-performing software in the Software Store. It surpassed the vast majority of its competitors, including popular AI and chatbot apps, as well as Microsoft’s Bing and Edge apps.
The Dark Side of AI Chatbots
While ChatGPT, as a sophisticated language model, has many advantages and potential, it also has some drawbacks. One of the key issues about ChatGPT is the possibility of misinformation and manipulation. As an AI, it is dependent on the data on which it has been educated, which may contain biassed or erroneous information. As a result, misleading or fraudulent replies may be generated. Furthermore, malevolent actors can use ChatGPT to disseminate misinformation and propaganda, as well as participate in damaging activities such as phishing or fraud. ChatGPT’s capacity to accurately mimic human interaction might make distinguishing between authentic and AI-generated content challenging, increasing the danger of deceit.
