I use Lightroom CC on many devices and I am tired of waiting, restarting and so on just to make them sync! Especially mobile apps says everything is synced and I say "NUTS" because I can see different picture on my big screen on PC. So adding a button called "Oh yes, I understand you think you are synced but please, would you double check for me right now?"

Picture edited on PC, synced

The same picture on mobile, also synced. Oh wait...

And not yet mentioning that I always have to completely restart my tablet to make Lightroom even load now photos. It says everything is synced until restart (closing app does not help, it keep running somewhere in deep background).

This would be great. I am often having my apps open and just sitting and waiting for ages for magic to happen.

Ughh... same here.  Lightroom CC for iOS badly needs a "pull down to refresh" feature.

I've been waiting for 3 days for mine to sync. Restarted numerous times and still nothing. signed in, signed out and signed in again. NOTHING! When will we see these apps work together and also have a "Force Sync" action so we can keep updated like the promotions say we will.

I have the same or similar problem.  Photos are synced on my mobile device and in the cloud, but Lightroom CC on my desktop is missing loads of photos and patently not synced even though it says it is synced and backed up

Same problem, waiting for my mobile Lightroom cc to synch (android), so that I can access the pictures at my PC...
