PolyGPT – a ChatGPT powered multilingual speech trainer, just released! (Free app)

I developed an AI powered app before my OpenAI free trail expires. Please check out the product page: PolyGPT – Introduction

For App Store link: https://apps.apple.com/app/polygpt/id6448837757

It supports for iPhone/iPad/Mac with M1(+) chips.

Guys, I just wanted to insert the App Store link, so I googled the app name and see if there’s a link already. I found someone already developed a Chrome extension called PolyGPT, an exact same name! What’s more surprisingly, the described idea is similar!

I haven’t tried it. The screenshot of it looks very different, it’s designed like a double sided view of ChatGPT, not targeting to language learning only. One for each language, mostly for a foreign language and a mother language.

I respect anyone with somewhat similar ideas, or doing similar things!

Just to avoid possible misunderstandings, here are some details of the app developments.

I started developed the app on March, 2023. In fact, checking if the prompts work only take a few minutes, and making the main feature, getting responses in different languages, takes a few days. The most heavy work would actually be making the UI, how they look in different situations, integrating speech recognitions and text-to-speech, Unity ads, all kinds of tedious details to make it from just a single feature to a complete user-friendly app.

I started with the app name called Langpt. But then changed to PolyGPT because this get much easier to remember and the name sounds better.

Some app info were started being filled up from May 5th. The app was first uploaded on May 18th. Got rejected twice. First time for writing “PolyGPT = Polyglot + ChatGPT” in promotion.(Mentioning ChatGPT in promotion text is not allowed.) Second time for a bug, no responses if only one language is set.

VR Full Body Tracking Using a Mirror

Experimenting with VR + mirror.
Same as the previous video, the Passthrough view is casted to my computer. And the full body tracking is done on computer using OpenPose.
Because Quest isn’t allowing apps to access actual Passthrough image.
