GPT-4 + custom AI prompts
Reflect AI now operates using GPT-4 from OpenAI.
This newer version of GPT is significantly more creative and intelligent. You can use it to rephrase text like any author, use it to edit your writing and much more.
In this update we also added the ability to view the prompts our team has pre-built. You can then clone, edit and save your own custom prompts to quickly call up in the future.
To access Reflect AI with GPT-4, just call on the AI palette like normal using
cmd j
or clicking the stars icon after highlighting some text.
You can see a video walkthrough of how to create your own custom prompts here.

Readwise Integration
Reflect now has an integration with Readwise – a tool that lets you save things you find online, then resurfaces those highlights at set intervals so you don't forget about them. By integrating Readwise with Reflect, all of this happens directly in your notes.
With it, you can do things like sync your bookmarked Tweets with Reflect, import all of your Kindle or Apple Books highlights, discover and save podcast highlights and gather insert text from physical books. It will also resurface these highlights directly within your notes.
If you don’t have an account yet, you can sign up for a free trial and start syncing your reading notes with the applications you use.

Whisper on mobile and password recovery kits
Reflect’s mobile app now lets you record and transcribe voice notes through Whisper - a new technology that provides near human level accuracy. It’s great for capturing that fleeting idea, or recording a reflection at the end of the day from your bed. To access on mobile, tap on the plus sign in the top right corner of your notes.
Reflect also now has recovery kits automatically download upon signup – making encryption much less scary. If you’ve already signed up, you can download your own recovery kit in your graph settings.

Reflect AI integration
You can now use AI to take better notes and improve your writing.
The AI palette comes with a handful of pre-written prompts, and you can also ask anything you want with a custom prompt.
Pull up the AI palette at anytime by pressing 'cmd j' (or 'control j' on Windows). You can also edit existing text by highlighting it and using the same keyboard shortcut, or selecting the magic wand in the text-selection menu.

Split pane view
Yesterday we quietly shipped a long-awaited featured: split-pane. In short you can now edit and view two notes at the same time.
To activate split-pane, try clicking a backlink while holding down the command key (or control if you're on Windows). To close, hit escape.
And, naturally, you can also activate with the keyboard. Highlight a backlink (using the arrow keys) and then press command+enter.
Tasks and more!
Firstly, we have released the
Tasks Beta
! This is a limited beta for the desktop/web app only. If you'd like to be involved in the beta head here (and please get involved in Discord).
