Juicy Bits, the makers of 5-star app Halftone, today announced its latest app, Layout, is now available on the App Store for iPad. Layout uses touch to split frames into sections and populate them with images from the photo library, Facebook, Instagram and Flickr. Photos are enhanced with built-in filters and effects, captions can be added to tell a story, and borders are styled using 100 built-in patterns. Layout supports sharing via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr, and projects can be stored in iCloud, making them easy to open on multiple iOS devices.
“One of the most common requests by users of our Halftone App has been the ability to arrange multiple photos on a single page,” says Mike Swanson, Founder of Juicy Bits. “After exploring many touch-first methods that take full advantage of iOS, we ended up creating an app that is incredibly useful on its own. We hope that Layout makes it quick and easy for customers to create photo arrangements that they’re proud to share with their family and friends.”
Layout introduces a unique radial menu that reduces finger travel distance when selecting commands. Because its center button reflects the prior selection, a quick double-tap can be used to repeat commands.
