Lightroom Mobile for OIS - recent changes to collections view

1) The latest update has changed the collections view from a single column list with attractive, large thumbnails for each collection to a double column list with tiny, tiny, thumbnails — so small you can’t see what the photo is supposed to be. The old collections view was really attractive. The new look is messy, busy, fiddly and awkward. I hate it. Please, please, please, restore the old collections view — or at least give users the choice!

2) There is a new collection called ‘Lightroom Photos’. I did not create it so it seems to be some sort of automatic default. It is redundant and useless: it includes some but not all photos from my synchronised collections, without any apparent logic. It is in the way and I want to delete it. But I can’t: there is no trash icon for that collection! What were the developers thinking? If users want a collection like this on their device, they can surely make one for themselves. Why on earth foist it on all users? It’s not even working as intended — at least, I assume it is meant to show all photos synced from Lightroom, though why anyone would want to do that is beyond me. And if someone really thought this would be helpful, why not give users the option instead of forcing it on everyone?

In summary, these changes were unnecessary and do nothing to improve the user experience. On the contrary, they annoy this user very much. The least Adobe could do is allow users to turn them off!
