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

Great creative tool in AR


Fun, simple, and brilliant!! I've never liked any other AR apps before, but this app got me. I particulary enjoy using the 'photo' feature indoor (when I'm in a small space) and 'ribbon' and 'explode' in outdoor spaces (when I can move around a lot). This is a great creative tool in AR--it has been exciting for me to watch on instagram what people make with this app.
One of the best things about this app is that it makes me move my body while using a smart phone. I've played with the app for half an hour in my room last night and I became sweaty, which makes me feel so good because I'm lack of exercise these days.
I see a huge possibility in this app and can't wait for more features. Having limited time editions of features for events/seasons would be fun. It would be also nice to be able to change the font size and color :)

Pure fun with AR


I’ve been following Zach’s work for a while and was so excited to see that he made an app so the rest of us could play with AR like he does. I’m having a blast getting creative and experimenting with the different styles. 10/10 would buy the app again.

Revolutionary! It’s gonna blow your mind!


I’ve been following Zach Lieberman on IG for a few months and when I became aware of this app I knew something big was being released! And I was right! ‘Weird Type’ is revolutionary and probably one of the most amazing apps I’ve ever seen in my life. Best dollar I’ve ever spent.
