👹 Goblin Tools

Goblin Tools is a collection of small, simple, single-task AI-powered tools, mostly designed to help neurodivergent people with tasks they find overwhelming or difficult.

Some of the tools include...

Magic To Do - Break large tasks down into smaller steps
  • Type in the task you need to complete and click the plus button "+" to add it.
  • Click the magic wand button to break down the tasks into smaller parts.
  • Repeat  this process on the steps to create sub-steps if needed.
  • Clear or edit steps as needed.

Formalizer - Rewrite text in a variety of different tones
  • Add the text you wish to change.
  • From the drop down menu choose how you want the text to be changed, such as more professional, less snarky, easier to read, bullet points, and more.
  • Click "Convert" to have the text rewritten.

The Judge - Evaluate the tone of a passage of text
  • Insert the text you need to have evaluated.
  • Click the "Judge" button.
  • The AI will give you feedback to explain the tone, implied meanings, connotations, and such for the text to help you better understand its true meaning and intentions.

Other tools include:
  • Estimator - Determine how long a task is going to take
  • Compiler - Compile a brain dump of ideas into a manageable list of tasks
  • Chef - Get suggestions for what to cook based on the ingredients you have, dietary constraints, time, and more.

💰 Pricing

Goblin Tools is totally free on the web! There are mobile apps versions of the tools that are offered at a low price which will help cover the running and maintenance costs so the website can stay completely free.
