Layout from Instagram finally arrives for Android devices

A couple of months after they released it on that other platform, Instagram has finally released their companion app called Layout from Instagram, this time for Android devices.

The collage-making app is perfect for those who don't want to use third-party apps but instead a fully authorized one in making their scrapbook-style photo posts.
