I'm using Lightroom Mobile on my iPad and I'm having issues downloading my galleries for offline editing. I'd like to hit the download button and leave my iPad for a couple of hours while a couple thousand photos are downloaded, however, as soon as I turn off the iPad and walk away for a bit of time, the sync seems to stop. Case in point: I started it last night before going to bed, left my iPad plugged in, and when I checked it this morning, it had stopped after 50 or 60 photos. It resumed as soon as I turned the iPad back on, which was still in the app.
Anyone else experiencing this? Is this a problem/limitation of iOS or a problem with the app? Any thoughts?
Yeah, Lr mobile behaviour isn't particularly friendly (I'm being very diplomatic) when it comes to off-line editing. The issue is of Adobe's making. So, don't go upsetting the folk at Apple ;-) Best you set your iPad so that it doesn't switch off. Once everything is downloaded you can set it back to auto switch off (assumes you remember).
Bah. Thanks Ian. I figured it may be something to do with what apps are allowed to do in the background and how long they're allowed to do it. Adobe, please work on this, it's extremely important to users who are often on the go and can't stay connected at all times.
