Without this functionality, LR mobile is completely useless. Why "fix" something that wasn't broken? Or worse still, why foist a work in progress on the paying public?

Bring back speed review. It was the key Lightroom mobile feature. Why for the life of me is it gone ?

I just discovered a workaround: if you happen to be working on a tablet with a Bluetooth keyboard attached (I have one built into my case), the "P" and "U" keys work to quickly flag and unflag images, just like the desktop version. Still miss the gestural flagging but at least this will get me through thousands of images a little faster?

While it does work, it’s no better than the laptop experience, whereas the “swipe to flag” process was MUCH better than the laptop experience. Then there’s all of the interface ridiculousness in 2.8 - you only get feedback on the keyboard shortcut if you’re in the “main” view, with the interface occupying 40% of the screen; on a laptop, you can hide most of the interface, so the overall experience is, on balance, much worse on iPad than just using a laptop.

I still can’t believe they let this see the light of day.

I've been making use of this on a big project that was progressing MUCH faster before the latest "improvements". While the keyboard shortcuts are certainly welcome, it would have been great if they had included the "~" shortcut to flag/unflag, instead of just P/U/X. P/U and the arrow keys are all clustered fairly close together, meaning there's no comfortable way to "Pick" and advance with one hand, leaving me with my left hand stretched awkwardly across the keyboard while my right hand is on the arrow keys.

Again, did anybody test this? This is obvious stuff.

whoever is responsible for this update broke a very elegant system with careless and poor design.

Like so many others, this BROKE MY WORKFLOW. When people rely on your products to make a living, how can you just pull features with no warnings? It’s been weeks, this is unacceptable. The previous comment with they keyboard suggestion has been more helpful than anyone at Adobe has been.

I desperately want speed review back.  It was one of the parts of my workflow that I looked forward to.  It was quick and easy and let me focus entirely on the photos and not worry about finding the right buttons to flag things with.  It originally cut my culling time in half at least.  Please help by bringing that function back.

Yes!!! It has been restored! It works again.

@Adobe: please don't disable this again again in future updates, two times is enough!!!

No it’s not. You have to leave edit mode and go to ratings mode. Very cumbersome.

Before it was possible to turn on speed review and set flag in the edit mode. This was very efficient. Please bring back the speed review Adobe and help us work smarter/faster.

I don't think this post should be marked as solved. It's not. Speed review has not been restored. Rate and Review doesn't function the same.

So which bit are you missing? The ability to speed review in Edit mode? Or something else?

Yes. The speed review function is still missing. It allowed you to set flags in all modes including Edit. Rate and Review is an entire mode which requires toggling back in forth to set a flag/rating after an edit adjustment, which lacks the whole speed part.

Exactly. This was my most used feature in Lightroom. The whole point of Speed Review is that I didn't have to switch to a new section of the app to quickly flag or reject photos etc. The gesture does not interfere with other functionality so really struggling with why it is taking so long to put back a key feature that was so great before. Please don't underestimate how useful and how frequently used this was.

Exactly, now it's just simply a review, no longer "Speed"

So true - now the mobile experience has become just as modal as the desktop, which was always a weakness vs something like Aperture (just because Apple abandoned the field doesn't mean every bit of LR was better).

It remains a mystery why Adobe believes this modality is a good experience. The gestures don't conflict with anything other than the Crop mode (also extremely modal, requiring a "Done" button), so why don't the gestures just work everywhere BUT Crop?

Currently, in Rate and Review mode, it requires two thumb gestures, one up/down gesture on the right side to pick/reject the photo, and another somewhere in the bottom middle to move to the next photo. This is inefficient and frustrating because I pick the wrong region of the screen about 15-20% of the time.

I would rather have a visible buttons: pick on the right side, reject on the left, and clear flag in the middle. As soon as I hit the button, it should advance to the next photo. The rating gestures are too unreliable to be useful. 

A rapid zoom function would also be nice. If I push and hold a part of the photo with medium pressure on the iPhone, it should magnify to 100% for that section as long as I hold it, to make it easy to rapidly check to see if eyes are in focus.
