A recent release of Lightroom Mobile has added the ability to edit the IPTC Title and Caption fields for a shared photo. And while the IPTC Title field is use by many as a short description of the image I have for years preferred to use the IPTC Headline field for this purpose as this is in line with my understanding of the IPTC standard. 

Regardless in practice, either field has become acceptable as the container for a brief description of the image. So much so that pretty much every online image service provider will use one or the other but not both. However, they are not consistent on which field will take precedence. Some have Title taking precedence and some use Headline. To avoid inconsistent presentation I use Headline and leave Title empty and that has worked pretty much everywhere except now for Lightroom Mobile.

I want to have an option in Lightroom Mobile to use one or the other. Or even some builtin smarts to display the Headline field in the case that it has some content and the Title field is empty because that is probably intentional by the user.
