The main rival of ChatGPT is free and has its own distinctive features. It shows you relevant information, while OpenAI’s bot shows you data from mid-2021. Bard works with links and can provide you with the answer based on your request and info from the page you send. ChatGPT has a similar function only in the premium version.
Google’s tool also gives you a few answers simultaneously. In Open AI’s tool, you need to ask the service to paraphrase the query. Bard provides you with multiple texts. Google’s tool gives you text similar to conversation language, while ChatGPT puts lists everywhere.
But Bard is great only for research purposes. It works poorer than a ChatGPT. And it’s worse than a code-review AI tool like Github Copilot, which we will review in the next article. Since July 2023 Google Bard saves your conversations as well, as ChatGPT.
Are there any ChatGPT-like tools that can help with the PDFs? Yes, moreover is a tool from the same developer. So we can clearly say that this is ChatGPT for PDF files.
The tool scans a document, analyzing its content and given context. Once it “reads” the file, the tool provides a short recap and predicts possible questions from you.
It works with any PDF, from student presentations to law documents. It helps you structure the main points of the document. As of today, this tool is free.
The most popular AI visualization tool allows you to convert your design ideas into JPEG pictures. All you need to do is to describe what happens in the picture as detailed as possible and paste it into the Discord chat of the tool. After a few minutes, you’ll get 4 pictures to choose from.
If you don’t like what you see, paraphrase your request and ask Midjourney to generate it again. You can ask it as many times as you need to.
Unfortunately, there are no free plans. There are three subscriptions for $10, $30, and $60 per month. There are an unlimited number of queries and general commercial rights for any plan. The main thing that distinguishes them is the processing speed and amount of concurrent jobs.
The stripped-back yet partially free alternative to Midjourney. If you sign up here before April 6, 2023, you have 15 free credits per month. But if you decide to test it after reading our article or spend all the free prompts, you need to buy credits. They are cheap: you’ll get 115 credits for $15.
But beware that it has less visualization power than Midjourney. You can’t visualize personalities, like “Lady Gaga dancing with Freddie Mercury”. But this tool will suit those who are looking for a tool to draw a quick sketch or a mood board.
This AI tool will generate your logo for free. Simply type your brand name, pick your industry, and choose logos that you like. Select the colors close to your brand colors, pick symbol types that suit you most, and wait until the tool generates the unique logo for you.

A basic plan with a single PNG file costs you $20. A premium logo with multiple files costs you $65. You can also get a brand kit subscription to ease your branding process.
It’s Canva on steroids. Pick the illustration size, write the desirable text (or don’t, you can choose “Paste AI recommendation”), select a picture from the service’s gallery or paste your own photo. Wait for 20-30 seconds until AI generates 100+ visuals, where each one has a conversion score.
If you sync your social media page, the tool additionally analyzes each post to provide visualizations that suit YOUR CUSTOMERS TASTE and boost your conversion. You also can add your own logos and change color schemes.
