AI-powered text and image generators are simply amazing and I have to say that testing these tools takes a generous amount of my time lately.
After several trial and error sequences, I narrowed down my use of AI generators to include the following:
- Rytr.me — Text generation. AI writing assistant.
- NightCafé Creator — Image generation.
- Writesonic tools, including Chatsonic — Text and image generation. AI writing assistant.
- Copy.ai — Text generation. AI writing assistant.
- ChatGPT — AI writing assistant.
When it comes to image generation, NightCafé responds perfectly to my needs and level of skill but with writing assistants, things get more competitive.
Rytr and Copy.AI are great for generating all things related to content creation — from keywords to headlines, to the actual blog post paragraphs, but they do not have the magic touch of chatbots.
In my world, the final battle is between Chatsonic and ChatGPT.
And I think I’ve found my winner in Chatsonic.
Even though getting access to the full list of features requires a paid plan, the tool is definitely worth it.
Chatsonic is reliable, easy to use, and affordable.
ChatGPT may be free for now — the research version — and is definitely a helpful tool but it just doesn’t meet my needs and expectations as a blog writer and content creator.
I will list below 9 reasons why I think Chatsonic is way better than ChatGPT.
- Chatsonic is available all the time. With ChatGPT I had moments when I couldn’t get things done because the platform reached its maximum capacity. I had to wait, and some things in the content creation world just cannot wait. I prefer Chatsonic’s reliability.
- Chatsonic answers queries ChatGPT does not. This AI assistant can retrieve Google’s latest data. There were instances where ChatGPT returned absolutely no information on a topic that could’ve been easily discovered in seconds with a Google search. Not very smart or useful in that sense.
- Chatsonic can generate a variety of content formats. ChatGPT is limited to general content, while Chatsonic can write blog posts, poems, emails, essays, and many other things.
- Chatsonic can format long-form content. With ChatGPT you can only retrieve basic text and format it yourself.
- Chatsonic provides sources for the information retrieved. Sometimes on its own, but definitely when asked to.
- Chatsonic allows you to download your data as PDF or Word file. Saving documents is time-consuming with ChatGPT.
- Chatsonic is faster. It’s magic, really. The response time is amazing. ChatGPT’s is good but not amazing.
- “ChatSonic refuses requests related to violence, sexuality, self-harm, or requests to produce offensive or highly controversial material, while ChatGPT may produce such content without the user’s knowledge.” This is according to Chatsonic itself. I haven’t tried giving it such a command.
- “ChatSonic provides extremely detailed and accurate content that is completely original and plagiarism-free, while ChatGPT may produce content that is inaccurate or plagiarized.” Once again, according to the chatbot itself. I am yet to verify plagiarism for texts generated by the two. While Rytr did occasionally detect its own content as plagiarized — read this story for full context — , I did not have to deal with that issue for my own texts since I never use AI-generated content directly. I still think the human touch is needed to create something worth sharing.
I am sure there are other benefits to using Chatsonic, just like I am still to test and discover ChatGPT’s own new useful features, when available.
At this time though, Chatsonic definitely has my heart.
I encourage you to try and assess it for yourself. An added benefit is that Chatsonic’s free features still offer a lot of value.
Thank you for reading.
