Layout from Instagram arrives on Android devices


After a short wait, Layout, Instagram’s official standalone collage app, has arrived on Android devices. It’s now available to download from the Play Store.

The app takes advantage of the fact that many of Instagram’s 300-million plus users post multi-picture collages to their accounts.

Layout was released on iOS in March. At the time, we thought it was a good experience, though perhaps something that didn’t make much sense to separate from Instagram’s core offering.

Instagram also announced a new feature addition to the Android version of its popular photo sharing app. Called Structure, this new feature helps users bring out the details and textures of a photo. According to the company, Structure will make its way to iOS devices soon.

Layout beats Hyperlapse, Instagram’s app for creating incredibly steady time-lapses, to become the first of the company’s standalone apps to make it to Android smartphones and tablets. Thankfully, those waiting on Hyperlapse have a pretty nifty alternative in the similarly named Hyperlapse from Microsoft.
