The OpenAI, ChatGPT app is available on iOS in Albania, Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, Jamaica, Korea, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Nigeria, and the U.K. OpenAI has also confirmed that the app will be available in more countries soon.

The free app allows users to sync chat history across all platforms and is the best way to use the chatbot through an official platform which should mean that responses are quicker. ChatGPT on iOS also has GPT-4 capabilities directly within the app.

In an official statement, OpenAI said, 

"Since the release of ChatGPT, we've heard from users that they love using ChatGPT on the go. Today, we’re launching the ChatGPT app for iOS."

"Discover the versatility of ChatGPT with instant answers, tailored advice, creative inspiration, professional input, and learning opportunities"

The next goal for OpenAI is to bring the app to even more countries and Android.
