Description

Have you ever wanted to draw with words? Weird Type is an AR app that lets you paint with text in space!

You can type your own phrases and pick from multiple modes and see your text in completely new ways. You can record videos of your messages and share them or save them to you camera roll.

It's based on a series of AR experiments that the authors Zach Lieberman and Molmol Kuo have been posting to Instagram over the last few months. People kept asking, "is that an app?" Now, together with our collaborator Design Indaba, which helped produce this, we're packaging some of these experiments into app and we hope you enjoy them!

The app is designed by Richard The, with iOS help from Ying Quan Tan, Robby Kraft, and Peter Sibley

Note the app now supports multi-lingual input.

Fun stuff

Weird Type is fun to use and good to buy. If you have enjoyed the sketches on instagram it shouldn’t be too hard to stump up the purchase price. It changes how you see spaces: the canal with floating ribbons of type; the escalator with letters falling like Rock Band; the glass elevator messing with the gyro. Here’s to continued development and being able to pin words on walls :-)

Fun and intriguing

Had seen lots of Zach’s work on Instagram... loved it. Took me a little while to understand the interface, it’s not quite intuitive enough when you’ve not used it before. Instagram has trouble uploading to Stories in my experience, but saving the movies first then uploading rather than going direct from app-to-app works fine. Looking forward to updates.

More than novelty

A lot of AR is thought to be a fad. With most excecutions ending up being nothing more tha novelty. But this app does that as well as being fun and a way of adding Title Screens to life. My eyes are peeled for anything else to come from this spot - there are truly creative minds behind it.
