Instagram’s collage-making application Layout launched on the iPhone nearly two months ago, but without a counterpart on Android. Today that discrepancy has been fixed with the release of Layout for Android.

The app lets users easily create collages using up to nine of their pictures, or take new ones using the built-in Photo Booth feature, which can then be shared to the photo-centric social network or elsewhere. The Android version of Instagram itself also gained support for a new feature called “Structure,” which helps bring out details in photos.

Layout is a free download on Google Play.
