3 Quick Things About Layout, Instagram's New App


By Likeable Media

Today Instagram announced its new app Layout.  Available only on iOS devices, the app lets you combine multiple photos into one collage-like image.

It's All About Features

The app allows you to use exciting new effects. Not only are there a variety of layouts for your collage, but there's also timed photos from the Photo Booth feature. Our favorite is the Faces feature, which only shows you pics from your camera that have people in them.

You Can Share Directly to Facebook

It's finally apparent that Instagram is indeed owned by Facebook. Once you create an image, you have the option to share on Instagram or Facebook. Twitter and other networks were conveniently left out.

It's Bad News for Third-Party Apps

The curse of creating a feature-based app like PicStitch is that once the main app adds your feature, in this case Instagram, you're kind of through. Expect the death of third-party apps that solely existed to collage or mirror images.

We are looking forward to testing these new features on the Likeable Media Instagram account. Have you downloaded the app yet? Which feature will you be testing first?
