Native drag-and-drop

Drag and drop images to save them, or to use with a vision model (such as GPT-4 Vision)

High Performance

Most native ChatGPT apps struggle to render real-time, markdown chat message.

I did a quick benchmark for a few popular AI chat apps such as MacGPT, Machato, Fly AI... and all of them reach 100% CPU real quick.

After 2 major rewrite, BoltAI lowers the CPU usage to below 30% during real-time live chat rendering.

You can test it yourself. Just ask the AI app to rewrite a long article.

Demo: 60 FPS on a long list
