Anthropic Launches a Free iOS App for Its Claude Chatbot

IBL News | New York

Amazon, Google, and Salesforce-backed Anthropic announced a free iOS app as well as its first enterprise offering called Team, which offers access to its Claude 3 Opus, Sonnet, and Haiku models for $30 per user per month.

The new Team plan features a 200K context window, enabling businesses to process long documents (e.g., research papers, legal contracts), discuss complex topics (e.g., financial forecasting, product road mapping), and maintain multi-step conversations (e.g., customer support inquiries, project planning discussions), helping individuals and teams gain deeper insights from their data.

The Claude iOS app offers the same experience on mobile web, including syncing chat history, and support for taking and uploading photos and files from a smartphone.

“Early testers report that the Claude app is exceptional for brainstorming ideas on the go, getting quick answers to questions, or analyzing scenes and images from the real world,” said the start-up firm.

Anthropic, the company behind the chatbot Claude, founded by ex-OpenAI research executives, has closed five different funding deals totaling about $7.3 billion.

The company has said the most capable of the new models, Claude 3 Opus, outperformed OpenAI’s GPT-4 and Google’s Gemini Ultra on industry benchmark tests, such as undergraduate-level knowledge, graduate-level reasoning, and basic mathematics.

This is also the first time Anthropic has offered multimodal support: users can upload photos, charts, documents, and other types of unstructured data for analysis and answers.
