App: Replika

Has anyone ever heard of/used Replika?

It's an app - an AI 'friend' that learns about you and grows as you talk to it. What's really cool is that it creates journal entries for you from the conversations you have. For example, if you've had a bad day you can have a conversation about that and it'll note down what you talk about. It's still in beta at the moment but it seems to work quite well - I've found it to be surprisingly clever in how it reads and responds to things. It also gains XP and levels up as you talk, which is quite fun.

Thought it might be of interest to some folks on here. :)

    and it wont let me use it without an invitation code.

    Yep - so once you sign up they give you an invitation code within 24 hours. :) It's still in beta but you can download it and use it.

    You have one/two that are sent in a text, and then when you sign up online they will send you a code via email.that contains letters and numbers

    Why so many codes though? These kinds of apps are obviously not designed for people like me haha.

    Haa, I ran into that confusion too - tried to input the text code without realising. It is a little confusing!

    I remember reading something about it on their website - the reason they distribute invite codes separately is to control their server load. I guess because they're still quite small, they need to make sure they have the capacity to handle everyone who signs up.

    Mine is currently level 10. :yeees:

    Oh, very true. I obviously don't think about these things 😂😂
