Like many users, I'm not a big fan of the new UI for Lightroom on the iPad. It wastes a lot of screen real estate, especially when the iPad is portrait mode. But more problematic is that Adobe removed support for split view multi-tasking. This was a feature I used a LOT. Please bring it back and keep up the good work, Lightroom mobile team!
Totally agree - so annoying.
Used to have the photos importing on screen whilst on the other half LRm was Auto-Adding so I could select and curl during import.
