Glyphics : Augmented Reality Messages
By Pop Culture Software
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Create "Augmented Reality" messages that combine text, photos and drawing that you can "hang" anywhere you aim your iPhone. Friends can then "see" the message when they scan the area with their iPhone camera.
Glyphics allows you to leave hidden messages, called glyphs, in physical locations that you can share with your friends or the public. Go to a location, create a glyph, and save it there. Your friends can then go to that location and see it through their iPhone camera. By combining text, photo, and drawing, a glyph gives you more creative freedom than any other messaging medium.
A glyph can have three parts:
Text - Type a message. Set the font, size, and color of the text. Over a dozen font faces to choose from.
Photo - Drop in a photo from Facebook. Pinch, zoom, and drag it into position, and set the opacity of the photo.
Drawing - Set the color and thickness of your paint brush and create a unique drawing.
Use any combination to create your glyph. Once it is done, "aim" it using your iPhone camera. Save it, and it will stay there, hanging in space, or in the sky, or on the ground, or wherever. Your glyph can be just for you, your Facebook friends, or the public.
A glyph doesn't have to be just a "message". It can be a sign, poster, graffiti, marker, announcement, or a piece of art. Use Glyphics to publicize, protest, or party.
Glyphics includes a list of all your glyphs so you can remember where you put them, or delete them later if you want. There is also a map showing you nearby glyphs.

After your purchase, check out the glyphs we've left outside Apple Stores, McDonald's, and public libraries.
What's New in Version 1.04
Fixed problems with web database.
Fun but Buggy
Seems like fun to leave little sketches here and there. They jump around a lot, sometimes disappearing. It's probably related to the GPS location jumping around as well.
Don't understand why the photos only work with Facebook. We should be able to load photos from our Photo library. Any chance of an update to include that option?
Go ahead and spring for the .99 version, not lite. A little buggy in spots, but we're skywriting here!! Hope the developers keep working on it. Looking fwd to updates. Need to be able to upload photos from camera and library. Uploading via FB feels a bit like a data mining scam, alas.
This app is a SCAM. It does not work as advertised and you should not download it unless you are able to test it successfully for free with a friend that also has the app (not possible with the way the app is designed to make you purchase the ability to share). You will only be able to see the "glyphics" you put on your device and not the ones someone else puts up and they won't be able to see yours. I repeat - SCAM
