AI Tools

Updated Dec 2, 2023, but this is all moving very fast so there may be really cool stuff I’m not aware of!

Multi-use / Mashup tools

Fredo is a tool you can add to WhatsApp and lets you use Midjourney for free, among other things.

Goblin Tools is a brilliant interface to ChatGPT that lets you break down tasks into smaller chunks and estimate how much time it will take, check the tone of a piece of text, translate a braindump into a list of tasks, and more.

Text generation

OpenAI’s ChatGPT is free to use, and the GPT-4 upgrade is worth it if you use it daily.

Claude is similar to ChatGPT in abilities.

Pi is built as a conversation partner.

Bard is Google’s chatbot. You can also turn on Generative AI within Google searches, in Google Labs.

Image generation

Clipdrop – realtime image generation! It updates as you type. Free images are watermarked in the corner.

Meta recently released a free image generator. Be sure to save images you want to keep, it doesn’t seem to have a  history function.

Midjourney is the best, but it is a paid program (their free option is never really available because they are so busy). It runs through Discord, which is a bit of a pain, but it is much easier if you pay for the $10/mo tier and add it to your own Discord server, which is free to make. See Fredo above for a free option. also has a credit system where you can claim 24 free credits per day (limit 50 total). Their system lets you choose different models to use to generate your images. gives you 150 free credits per day and offers a variety of models. I got my invite after a few weeks.

I also think Bing’s image generator is fairly good and it’s also free but you get limited credits for faster generation. It is powered by Dall-E. The credits regenerate over time. offers 100 free image generations per month.

Adobe Firefly is open and seems to be free for now.
