Hello, when I first heared about the upcoming lightroom mobile for IOS I was really excited - until I found out that my most wanted feature was not included: to option to have my full catalog + previews available on the iPad to show / work on it offline
I don´t think that too many really work on picture development with the iPad ... for me the most natural feature is simply to show pictures - so I am really disappointed not to find this functionality included up to date ... hope this will change soon and also that I´m not the only one asking for it
You cannot have the complete catalog on your Ipad however, you can work in offline mode on Ipad which would download the images there.
You can request for the feature here : Feature Request/Bug Report Form
In LrDesktop, add all your photos to a collection. Sync it with LrMobile.
In LrMobile, choose the collection and enable offline editing. Wait until the progress bar has completed.
