    Uh … Android?

    Impressive set of new features …… but ….

    Still no progress with ability to maintain basic metadata, such as Title, Caption, Comment, Copyright and Location.

    It is seriously painful to be able to integrate metadata between Lightroom, InDesign and Photoshop. I do not use the Lightroom Mobileapp, so these developments are currently academic to me. Maybe when the metadata gets some love I will be more eager to use this app.

    Regards.

      Agree Matt. LrMobile is pointless without title, caption and keyword editing. How hard can it be?

    So where’s the android version? We’re still stuck in the stone age. Has Adobe become a subsidiary of Apple?
