Would be very useful to add photos to catalog by date. My device folder contains about 3000 photos and I add about 300 photos by day when on vacation. So I either have to select whole of Sony Image Edge folder or manually select 300 photos rather than just selecting yesterday's photos for example.

I’m not sure I understand your request. Lightroom Mobile can sort images by date, and display them in a segmented view by date. So why would you need to import them by date? And because import in Lightroom duplicates the image, you can (and perhaps should) delete imported images from your device folder.

Good point about deleting them from source folder but the Sony Image Edge gets confused with its transfer comparison if there are missing images compared to memory card. So I just wanted an easy way to select a subset of images from a folder on Android by date. I can select the whole folder again but then Lightroom takes ages to work out which are the new photos. Does that make more sense? Thanks!
