– revised launch screen – fixed bug where the app would launch w/ last saved video – added horizontal mode for text entry (note: video still saves vertical but you can enter content horizontally and rotate video in post) – added movement to transparent ribbon mode
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
