However LRM on the iPad is not the same... it has what I assume are the old style controls and sliders? Can someone help explain why this discrepancy appears to exist? Is there an update due out for the iPad to incorporate this change, or am I missing something?
Adobe has said that the iPad is going to get the updated UI at some point. In a Lightroom Journal blog post, Adobe said:
Lightroom for iPhones includes a new edit experience, a new info section, a new capture interface with a brand new professional mode…The teams for both Lightroom for iPads as well as Lightroom for Android are also working on adding in the new edit and info experiences and we hope to release those updates soon.
It's possible that they haven't finished translating the new design for tablet screens. What works on a tiny phone screen might result in wasted space on a 12.9" iPad, for example.
Thank you for the quick response... and that would explain what I'm experiencing.
My only concern is that the blog post you referenced is over 6 months old! If they already had the new interface designed and out for the iPhone I wouldn't have thought it would take that long to port it to the other platform(s)?
Do you know of anyway I could get information on the status of the upgrade for the iPad?
Otherwise I guess I will just have to wait patiently...
It took a while, but it's here…if you check your iPad App Store today, there should be a new version of Lightroom Mobile for iPad with a major UI update and new features. Details here:
