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.


New in this version

- Weird type now supports multi-lingual text input! you can type messages in Arabic, Mandarin, Japanese, or any language you can input on iOS (note, we don't support emoji)
- Added a new video recorder which is much higher resolution, faster and records anti-aliased
