MacStories has introduced a highly potent and adaptable shortcut that integrates ChatGPT with your preferred iOS apps and features, marking its latest addition to the market.

S-GPT, an abbreviation coined by Federico Viticci, is a conversational shortcut designed specifically for Apple devices. The purpose of S-GPT is to leverage the capabilities of ChatGPT and combine them with the native functionalities of iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and macOS. This advanced conversational tool utilizes the ChatGPT API and provides an integration of ChatGPT responses with various features of Apple platforms.

Federico was inspired by Microsoft's successful integration of ChatGPT with Windows and felt that Apple platforms were missing out on this integration. His vision for S-GPT was more than just a simple conversational bot but a tool that could connect ChatGPT responses with native features of Apple platforms. The aim was to create a utility that could help process data and perform various tasks rather than just answering trivia questions or composing poems.

S-GPT's first version supports integrations with features like Safari share sheet, clipboard, reminders, calendar, Live Text, Quick Look, Files, Finder, Translate, and other export actions. For instance, S-GPT can summarize web pages shared through Safari share sheet, process the contents of the clipboard, summarize text from images via Live Text technology, and export conversations through various actions.

S-GPT's integration with the Music app is a standout feature. As explained by Federico, it can create a playlist in Apple's Music app for any list of songs returned by ChatGPT. By providing a list of songs to S-GPT, you can ask it to turn them into a playlist and it will generate a new playlist in the Music app. S-GPT can recommend songs based on various criteria such as vibe, release date, and mood. For example, you could ask it to create a playlist of 25 mellow indie rock songs released between 2000 and 2010 and sort them by release year from oldest to most recent.

Federico's implementation of S-GPT is impressive, both in terms of functionality and privacy. Your conversations are only ever sent to the OpenAI API, and the shortcut does not keep a log or cache of your chats by default.

To use S-GPT, you will need an API key from OpenAI and can opt for the pay-as-you-go billing option, which costs $0.002 per 1K tokens. You can download S-GPT from the MacStories website and set it up via the Shortcuts app on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Check out Federico's full write-up on MacStories for more details and examples of S-GPT use cases.
