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 :-)

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)_/ ̄

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...

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.

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.
