- NAMED BY APPLE AS EDITORS' CHOICE AND ONE OF THE BEST APPS OF 2012
Layout makes it easy to arrange your photos, tell stories, and share with friends.
Swipe your finger to quickly split a frame into sections, and use the radial menu to add photos directly from your photo album, Facebook, and Flickr. Enhance images with built-in filters and effects, adjust saturation and contrast, add some stickers, and a whole lot more. Then, add a caption to each photo, apply a background color or pattern, and share your layout with friends and family via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr. If you want to go back, Layout includes undo and redo, and best of all, you can store your projects in iCloud to share them with other devices.
Layout runs on iPad 2 or later and iPhone 4 or later.

Ratings and Reviews
My favorite multi frame app
I've used many apps of this kind, and Layout is my favorite. It's simple, but also vey customizable. There are many ways to alter photos once chosen. I'd like to be able to import a photo to use as the background, but this is a small thing.
One of my most used apps for photos, designs, etc.
This is less a complaint than a request: while it does have a good selection of pattern frames, it hasn’t been added to since I started using it over a year ago.
Easy, Reliable, Useful, Dependable ... And Well Done!
I use this app often, never any problems, it does what I want, and it's a fun way to communicate visually.
I highly recommend it.
One area to improve ...
Give the user full control of image size w/in each frame/subframe ... meaning allow two finger pinch to shrink image until the outer edges of the image match, or are inside, subframe border ... And keep this change after user lifts fingers.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
