ok, so you removed it :(

It was there for so long I really got used to it. I would sync a bunch of photo and use the speed review to quickly flag good and bad ones, it was a great way to make the most out of LR mobile. Could you please add it back>?

Yep, it was a really fantastic feature. Ultimately it was THE feature of Lightroom mobile. 
Can anyone shed some light as to why it was removed and (after the genius who removed it is flogged and tied to a rock) will it be restored?

If you backed up your iPad via USB to your PC/Mac you should be able to find and replace the app.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Bring back swipe for rating/stars in Lightroom mobile on iOS (iPhone).

The previous behaviour was well-thought-out and guaranteed a quick workflow. Now everything is a button again, no long press, no swipe. The buttons overlap the photos and are small and hard to hit. If you accidentally hit the wrong pick and are in an active filter you have to tap a lot to bring the pic back (no cmd+z and no shake to undo). I could go on ...

This is bad from any standpoint except for visual aspects its really pretty. 

Please re-implimentate swipe gestures.

Who was the genius who removed this feature? Obviously he doesn't have to go through a wedding session to select rejected photos. Without this feature LR is almost useless to me. I hope someone with a brain puts it back on.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Mobile rate / flag swipe gestures - please restore ASAP.

You moved the cheese guys. The swipe for speed review in Lightroom mobile is gone with the latest update 2.6.0. This is one of the MAJOR reasons i used lightroom on mobile as it speeds up my workflow tremendously, and now i have to aim at a small button to flag reject, another for pick, 4 stars, etc etc. Very bad move. Please, please restore this ASAP.

This is (was?) a valued capability in LR Mobile. Using LR mobile has been a key aspect of my culling of files prior to serious editing. Need it back.
By the same token, I really like most of the other LR Mobile feature updates/refreshes - and look forward to them being implemented for iPad so I can fully leverage my new iPad Pro....

The swipe flag and star feature was the main reason to have Lightroom mobile installed for me. If it's not in the new version I cannot upgrade.
Adobe has a history of introducing great features and then removing them again. Was there any complaint about this features from users, so that there was a reason to remove it?

I just realized I asked my question in a way that sounds like someone from Adobe would ever answer it ... how silly :-)

Adobe just please trash the new version of Lightroom Mobile entirely? No one likes it, except perhaps your programmers who have to justify their jobs by changing stuff all the time. If you didn't realize that bit of human psychology before, please realize it now?

PS- I didn't say you were a no nothing, just the people who Adobe "researched" (if indeed they did that). Sorry if I wasn't more clear.

PPS- "it sounds like they are doing real research and trying to satisfy most people". Not if they are reading this blog, it's like 99% against the new version. (It covers the freaking photo!)

Hey Carlos. I totally agree with you. Adobe doesn't seem to have tested the new version fully before releasing it, with real-world working professional photographers... which unfortunately seems to be consistent with their other buggy software releases. Since you said, like me, that the star review interface is covering your photos, I assume you are using Lightroom Mobile on a phone-sized screen? I mean, it's a "mobile" app, so shouldn't it work on all mobile devices... not just a tablet?!? Anyway, fwiw, since Adobe isn't commenting about fixing this issue, I found a sort of workaround. I use Lightroom for Web (https://lightroom.adobe.com/), opening it in a windowless browser on my phone. "Private Browser" by SavySoda is a good one for iOS. Then, you can view your photos full screen, with a less obtrusive ratings interface. It's not ideal, but at least it's an improvement over the new Lightroom Mobile interface, at least until adobe fixes what they broke.

It would have taken genuine effort to mess the LRm up this badly. It's baffling.

There was only an update for the iPhone App. The iPad update is to follow.
Hopefully by then, Adobe will find a way to keep the Speed Review.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Mobile: Bring back one-swipe star ratings!.

Where did one-swipe star ratings go after the last Dec. 8th update for Lightroom Mobile?!?! Can I roll
back my update to get this back? Or please bring it back! You've added
an extra tap to get to star ratings in the "Rate and Review" section of
the app. This is extremely cumbersome when reviewing thousands of
images. Why would you get rid of the one-swipe up quick rating system?
It worked great. When is it going to be brought back??? (I am using an iPhone SE, fwiw)

I find it easier to touch a star button than slide my thumb to select a star in speed review mode. I guess everyone has their own opinion of what's easiest.

Please keep the new 2.6.0 functionally if speed review mode is ever brought back.

But on an iPhone, the star buttons cover the entire photo. It's bad interface design. So when you tap to make them go away (so you can see your photo you are reviewing), then you have to tap again, then tap again to star or flag. It's a whole lot of tapping. And having to do that thousands of times when you want to review a shoot, makes this app now unusable for that purpose on an iPhone.

The real gem in the speed review was the ability to quickly pick and reject photos using the flag effortlessly  ... it was  one the selling feature i would tell my photographer friends who use LR but not LRMobile to give Mobile a shot ̄\_(ツ)_/ ̄

Chiming in on this too. Really miss the speed review, and finding the new Review screen to be a much slower and less flexible solution. Would love to have the gesture back, at least as an opt-in feature.

Kind of. You have to switch to the "Review" tab in order to use it ... which defeats the purpose in my opinion. Once I have switched to the Review tab, the onscreen buttons were fast enough to use. The whole point of the request was to be able to use the Speed Review while in the "Edit" tab, without having to switch to the "Review" tab first.

Hopefully they will improve this further. Or rather ... put it back how it used to be.

They've removed it from the iPad now, very annoying, this was my favourite thing about the whole app.

Ditto - speed rating is 75% of what I used Lightroom mobile for. They've dropped their best feature, again. Frustrated with this company.

Yep - all those complaints a few months ago, and they just took it away again.

For good measure, we now have the interface taking over the screen in Edit mode, making the photo you're editing MUCH smaller. It's almost like they have no idea what sort of app they're making or how it's used.

Ditto, please also put the tools at the bottom where they were. You don't have to change stuff that was working, just to justify your jobs, you really don't!

It seems very likely no one from Adobe reads this. If people aren't submitting their complaints directly to Adobe through the proper channels, we can't expect anything to change for the betterment of Lightroom real world users.

And it seems people are also posting on this page, as the OP asks for feedback on the new update specifically.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Bring back the gestures for flagging in Lightroom Mobile.

I have long applauded Lightroom Mobile as an excellent example of an mobile application that is powerful and yet written and developed specifically for a mobile and touch interface. The gestures were a big part of this. Swiping between images and quickly flicking up and down to flag or reject them was brilliant. It was really easy to do one handed when holding a tablet, or even flicking through images on a phone.

Triage was quicker and more enjoyable lying on the couch with my iPad than sitting in front of my desktop with a huge screen and "full" or "real" Lightroom.

Now you can't flag an image when viewing it full screen. To flag an image you need to hit a rather small touch target.

I am really happy to see additional adjustment options added to the mobile version, such as sharpening, and the ability to edit captions, but please please please bring back the speed flagging and flagging gestures.

The worst thing that could happen is the interfaces between Lightroom Mobile and Lightroom 'Desktop' merge - please keep them separate. The two interface and user experiences need to be built independently for very different use cases and form factors, and the mobile interface has always been brilliant.

Ok. So don't get me started on the inability to post to this thread without already being signed in. And in signing in, you lose what you wrote. I mean wow.

Ok what I wrote was this: it's really unbelievably simple: Do not remove good functionality from your programs. Ever. See? Simple.

Countless wedding, event, family or even landscape photographers that I know use the Speed Review as part of their workflow. Removing it was dumb. And a backwards step.

I personally use LRMobile for its namesake: mobility. I fly around the country and I need to be able to select my images both by starring and flagging quickly. And away from my desktop. I have 1000s of images to flick through and by removing the Speed Review and replacing it with a tiny touch area, you have tripled my workflow speed.

Great that you've made other enhancements, but it was idiotic to remove this functionality. Truly.

In order not to waste my time, I had to waste my time learning how to install the previously installed version of LRMobile onto my device so I could continue to access the Speed Review functionality. That is 4 hrs of my life that is like back thanks.

Go and add back in the Speed Review as it was in the previous version. And remember this thread. Never remove it again. It strikes me as idiotic that this is he second time it has been removed, even after the massive and serious complaints that were received the last time it was removed...

I ready liked the old speed rating system done with swiping. Please offer booth styles to the users and let them choose witch one to use. I like the rest of the update. Espessialy that I can see info like shutter speed and so. I would like to see them over the picture though.

Found the following in: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/bring-back-speed-review-in-lightroom-mobile-f...

Victoria Bampton has indicated that it will be. It was taken out because it conflicted with something else, but will be re instated.


So I guess we just need to wait...

It's already back, you just have to be in Rate & Review view.

Sadly it's not the same. In its current state you cannot set flag and stars in the edit mode like previously. You have to switch to Rate & Review mode and then back to Edit mode if you want to make develop changes.
