Lightroom Mobile: Ability to sort by aspect ratio

When viewing images on a tablet I find it very irritating to be constantly turning the device between landscape and portrait orientation, it would be much better if the images were sorted by aspect ratio so that it's only necessary to turn the device once whist viewing a collection.

LR Desktop supports an Aspect Ratio sort, but that isn't selectable in LR mobile. Also, if the desktop collection is sorted by aspect ratio, that sort order isn't maintained when the collection is synchronised to LR mobile. Please add an aspect ratio sort to LR mobile.

I agree Nicholas, I submitted a very similar request 3 days ago for just the same reason. I'd settle for LR Mobile just defaulting to the sort I use in LR Desktop, which I have set at sort by Aspect Ratio.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Sort by orientation in LR Mobile?.

I asked this as a question on the Lightroom 5 community and was directed to place it here for more visibility, since it now seems to be feature request.

I use Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5 daily, and have really liked the addition of Lightroom Mobile to the mix. I have a suggestion for the Mobile implementation. When viewing my collections on my iPad Air 2 I find myself continually flipping it's orientation, back and forth, to view the images either portrait or landscape. I find this flipping annoying.

I have sorted my collections in Lightroom by "aspect ratio," giving me all the portrait images first, followed by all the landscape. I would think that LR Mobile would default to the order chosen in Lightroom, but it doesn't. As well, I don't seem to have the "sort by aspect ratio" available in LR Mobile. Any help?

Dear Adobe: please act on this. With iPad Pro it is even unwieldier to flip it back and forth. We need this option directly in LR Mobile.

There's a workaround for this problem that might help until a sort by aspect ratio is added to LR mobile, you can find it here:
