I've spent quite a bit of time hunting for the right AI assistant, but a lot of them seem limited. Some just summarize or rewrite text. But then there's AIPal – it's like an all-in-one web assistant. It can handle all sorts of tasks, making it super versatile. Next up, I'll show you with some examples how AIPal works with us on our tasks.

How to AI Writing with AIPal

AI writing is a big part of how I use AI tools. I'm always writing blogs, proofreading content and responding to emails. What I love about AIPal is that it takes ChatGPT and adds a bunch of preset commands, making it super easy and accurate to get the content I need. Let's see how AIPal makes AI writing simpler.

Method 1: Create new contents with AI writer

AIPal can assist with AI writing. You can enter the topic you want to write about in the conversation box, set the format, tone, length, and other aspects of the content.

Set up the writing style



I usually use it to help me generate ideas for blog articles, create rough outlines, and I find it great for brainstorming and quickly gathering information.

In my example, I want to write a recommendation about new books for 2024.

Write an article about new books in 2024

AIPal quickly provided me with an answer, writing an article in just a few seconds. I can also use the copy button to quickly transfer it to my Word document.

Let’s check the result!  

I found that some of the books it recommended are ones I've recently purchased, and I strongly agree with them. As for the other recommendations, I'll take some time to see if they're worth recommending to my readers. Other AI tools offer the AI writing feature, but AIPal does it in a way that never feels all show and no go, meaning there won't be a lot of vague or redundant words. Until now, everything looks pretty good.

Method 2: Reply to comments or emails with the AI text generator.

The Reply function is just what you need for handling social media comments and email responses. When you select the text to reply to, AIPal jumps right in, loading your text and crafting a response based on your instructions. The AI text generator is quick, accurate, and natural-sounding, saving me from the tedious task of crafting replies.

Case 1: Reply web pages questions

Step 1: Select the text you want to reply to, right-click, and choose the 'Reply' option.

Step 2: Ask AIPal to reply to the email, then click 'Write'.

Step 3: Copy and reply using the email generated by AI.

Method 3: Ask AI to rewrite

Rewrite is a feature I often use. I need to adjust different sentences and paragraphs, tones to fit the writing of articles on different topics. AIPal is a very convenient AI paraphraser. It can help me when I'm stuck and review the text if it doesn't sound right. It's like having a writing partner, beta reader, and editor right at your fingertips. Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Select the 'Rewrite' option under 'Write', then paste the content you want to rewrite into the 'Original Content' box.

Step 2: Tell AIPal your rewriting requirements. You can also specify the style for the rewrite. Click 'Write'.

Curious about how well the content was rewritten by the AI paraphraser? Let's check out my real-life examples.

Case 1: Ask AI paraphraser to make it easier to understand

Original version:

The biggest issue with stereotyping today would be in the business world. Let's take hiring new employees as the main problem. It may not always be race that is a deciding factor as much as it is sex. Some jobs a woman may be hired over a man due to her nurturing nature. On the other hand a man may be hired over a woman due to the fact that he may be stronger. In some cases the sex of a person may be the deciding factor on whether they even get a call.

Rewritten version:

The main problem with stereotyping today lies in the business world. Hiring new employees is a major concern. Sometimes, gender rather than race plays a decisive role. For certain jobs, a woman might be chosen over a man because of her nurturing qualities. On the other hand, a man might be preferred over a woman because of his physical strength. In some situations, a person's gender alone can determine whether they even receive a phone call.

The rewritten version emphasizes the problem and concern encountered. The language is more concise and coherent, with the subject placed earlier, making it overall clearer and more persuasive.

Case 2: Ask AI paraphraser to make it more formal

AI Pal AI paraphraser



Original version:

Why are there so many apps for something easily done with sticky notes or any other scrap of paper? Because managing tasks is an intensely—even irrationally—personal thing. People will reject anything that doesn't feel right. That's a good instinct, but it makes it hard to find the right app.

Rewritten version:

Why are there numerous applications available for tasks that can easily be accomplished using sticky notes or any other piece of paper? The reason behind this is the highly personal nature of task management. Individuals tend to reject anything that doesn't align with their preferences, making it challenging to find the perfect app.

The rewritten version emphasizes the logical flow between sentences and reduces colloquial words like 'feels' and 'that's'. By transforming short sentences into longer ones, it appears more formal.

AIPal's rewriting skills are really something else. If you were to ask me what kind of AI assistant I need, this would be it. At least when it comes to rewriting content, it's been a huge help.

How to Use AI Summarizer for Web Pages

If you're someone who's constantly scouring the web for information, then AIPal is your go-to AI assistant. It can quickly summarize web pages, helping you get the gist of things in no time. And because it's right there on the side of my page, I can easily compare it with the webpage for verification (which I usually do to double-check AI's accuracy). Compared to summarizing on the ChatGPT website, I find the experience with AIPal to be much smoother and seamless.

Here’s how to summarize a page:

Step 1: Select the 'Current Page' option under 'Read'. You can also click 'Paste URL' to paste the URL of the page you want to summarize.

Step 2: AIPal will quickly summarize the content of the page for you. You can click 'Copy' to copy the summary generated by AI, or use 'Chat' to ask questions to AIPal.

Tips: AIPal typically sits as a small icon on the far right, keeping a low profile so it doesn't grab my attention. When I want to use it, such as for summarizing a page, I simply hover over the icon. Then, in the panel that pops up, I select 'Page Digest', and it provides the page summary in the Chat panel. This method doesn't offer a copy option, but since the content isn't lengthy. I'm fine with both approaches.

Let’s take a look at my example:

I'm working on an article recommending books for 2024, and I'm considering adding works by Jon Fosse, who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2023, to give the article more depth. So, I had AIPal analyze an article about Jon Fosse. What to read: Jon Fosse https://www.nobelprize.org/what-to-read-jon-fosse/

Here’s the summary I got from AIPal.

The website page provides information about the Nobel Prize and highlights the works of Jon Fosse, the 2023 literature laureate. It mentions three of Fosse's notable works: "Stengd gitar," "Morgon og kveld," and the "Septology". The Septology is described as Fosse's magnum opus, consisting of three books: "The Other Name," "I is Another," and "A New Name." The page also includes links to other sections of the website, such as Nobel Prizes & Laureates, Alfred Nobel's life, news & insights, and educational resources.

I went over the summary again, and I find it really informative. It includes all the key works I wanted to know about, like the major work 'Septology', and provides additional info about Jon Fosse. This AI summarizer has saved me a bunch of time in research, so I can focus on more important parts of writing.

How to Translate using AI

Google Translate used to be my go-to translation tool, but sometimes it wasn't very accurate. If you asked it to translate a page, it would overwrite the entire text. However, AIPal changes things up. It uses the ChatGPT interface, making translated text more accurate. What's more important is that when translating a page, it can keep both the original and translated text, which is much more convenient for bilingual learning and proofreading.

Method 1: Translate page using AI

Step 1: Click on the settings icon in the top right corner.

Access settings in AI Pal



Step 2: Select 'Translate' and set the Translation Language

Step 3: When you want to translate a page, simply hover your mouse over the AIPal icon on the right side of the page, and select 'Translate Page'.

That's how it works. The translated text will show up below the original, making it easy to compare.

Method 2: Translate text using AI

If you don't need to translate an entire page, you can also translate specific text. AIPal offers two ways to translate text. Let's take a look.

Case 1: Use it as an alternative to Google Translate

AIPal's translator brings AI into translation, making it more accurate and natural. And it's right there on your right side, super convenient and always ready to use.

Step 1: Click on the Translate option.

Step 2: Paste the text you want to translate.

Step 3: AIPal will quickly translate your text. You can use 'Copy' to copy the result.

For me, AIPal's Translator is like an upgraded version of Google Translate. It has a familiar interface, but it's more convenient and provides more accurate translations.

But in AIPal's current version (Version 0.1.1), it only supports a handful of mainstream languages. I'm hoping future updates will include more languages for translation. I've already requested this feature in AIPal's Discord community, so let's watch it get even better together.

Case 2: Translate selected texts on a page

Step 1: When you're browsing the web, you can select the text you want to translate, then choose 'Translate' from the dropdown options.

Step 2: AIPal will quickly translate, and you can click 'Copy' to copy it.

The Grammar feature in AIPal is a quick AI spell check and paraphrasing tool. Let's see how it works.

Step 1: Select the Grammar option among the features.

Step 2: Enter the text you want to check, then click 'Quick Check'.
