Great concept, I think there could be some improvements in the UX, however. The ghost isn't entirely clear what that does, why do I have to face a light source / what does it do and it'd be nice to be able to resize and move the text vs. toggling back and forth. Personally, if I were to pay for the additional fonts, I'd like a selection of fonts that are more clean vs. 'fun' - seems 90-esque. Nice work using ARKit, hope to see some iterations.

@lewis502 Thanks Lewis, I agree with everything you say! πŸ˜… About the screen facing the main light source : #wordup is adding a virtual light in the 3D scene when you start the session so the text can cast shadows on the floor or tables etc (horizontal planes ARKit recognises as you move the phone). AR looks real if all the shadows in the picture are in the same direction, so the phone needs to know where the main light is. I agree the solution isn't perfect though.

Looking forward to updates in the future πŸ‘‹

Pros:

Fun and great for a v1 :)

Cons:

Having to type the message every time you clear the existing words is a bit of a pain. Direct manipulation of the text would be πŸ’―
