There are two ways that Frontly leverages AI in our no-code platform:

  • To generate your apps and spreadsheets based on your plain-text prompt in our AI App Generator. This uses 1 token per app generation.

  • To generate text responses based on a prompt and your user's inputs using the OpenAI Request action. This uses 1 token per request.

Each app generation or OpenAI request consumes one AI Token from your monthly balance:

Each paid plan comes with a specific number of AI tokens that are replenished each month. If you run out of tokens, you may need to upgrade to another plan if you want to continue using AI tokens or wait until the month is over for your AI Tokens to replenish.
