We asked Writier founder, Rae Auker, about building a writing tool app that allows users to create amazing content in seconds with the power of AI-generated sentence completions. Rae comes from an entrepreneurial and tech background. He chose Bubble because the no-code platform enables his team to quickly and easily create prototypes/MVPs that can be tested by users without having to deal with the headache of building a full-blown web application from scratch.
Tell us about your app and what it does.
Writier is an online writing tool that helps create amazing content in seconds with the power of AI-generated sentence completions. The app makes it easy to write long-form articles, blog posts, and web content without ever having to worry about writer's block.
In addition, the app also provides a wide range of features that helps writers manage, track and organize their content in 12 different languages.
How does your app work?
Our long-form editor is a unique writing tool that uses the latest NLP (Natural Language Processing) technology. When a user gets stuck at a certain point in their writing process, the AI can generate sentence completions based on the context of the article and the user’s writing style.
For example, if a writer is stuck at the sentence "As Descartes said", the tool will suggest other ways to complete the sentence, such as "As Descartes said, I think therefore I am". This core technology is powered by GPT-3, a machine learning model that has been trained on millions of Wikipedia articles and other sources of text.
Tell us a little about your background and how you discovered no-code tools like Bubble.
Coming from an entrepreneurial and tech background, I was always looking for ways to quickly solve problems in different industries. As a first-time user of no-code tools, I was skeptical about how well they would work in a real-world application.
After experimenting with different no-code tools like Webflow, UiPath, Zapier...I was already amazed by the direction these tools were taking at the time, there was a feeling of disruptive innovation in the space. Fast forward 5 years later, I stumbled upon Bubble and the rest is history.
Why did you build your app on Bubble?
Bubble allows us to quickly and easily create prototypes/MVP's that can be tested by users without having to deal with the headache of building a full-blown web application from scratch. We have found it to be a great fit for our team since we are very familiar with the tool and have successfully built complete applications using Bubble before.
What have been your milestones or successes so far?
We've had a few major milestones and successes with Writier. The first one was our partnership with OpenAI. Currently, our tool is powering thousands of articles worldwide and we are now working closely with OpenAI to continuously improve on the AI model's accuracy and safety.
Another recent milestone is that we just came out of our public beta and the support from our users has been amazing! We've received tons of positive and constructive feedback which has helped us improve on our product and service.
What are your next steps or future plans for your app?
Like any early-stage startup, we are constantly searching for our product-market fit. The next step for us is to continue providing better support, feature updates, and bug fixes to our users.
We are also planning our first seed round of funding in order to scale up our team and expand our product.
