New workspace not good. Whats with the new Lightroom mobile app?

My tools window now take up 1/2 of the screen on my iPad Pro 10.5. It was much better before when it was down on the bottom and the tool bar disappeard to allow for the full screen image while doingedits. Not a good update!

It would also be nice if we had the option to export in more size options, instead of only 2048 and full res.

I certainly agree.  Take us back to the old interface for the iPad Pro.

Why haven't we heard from the developers?

100% agree!

I bought an iPad 10.5 pro mainly for editing pictures in Lightroom.
Now I don't use it at all... Please, please change it back!

Has anyone tried the new LR Mobile 3.0 on iPad? How has the interface changed? Is the image/editing space bigger now?

I've given it a cursory first look, and it is improved. Specifically, the editing panel is now translucent, so the image doesn't shrink when you open the panel. Still not ideal, as the panel still covers enough of the image that it could be an issue, depending on where you want to be looking as you move a slider, but at least the image isn't immediately shrinking to a much smaller size.

I like how the sliders panel disappears when editing at anything over full image view, leaving only the current slider itself visible. Takes a bit of getting used to but nice improvement. The panels slider is also a bit narrower than before, and in my case the Blacks slider seems to more properly now.
Not keen about thei ‘Done’ button being right at the bottom of the screen. Means a bit more movement to jump between the different editing modes. Nothing I wont get used to quickly though.

This is a step back.  Interface is like giving a calculator to violinist and asking for a symphony.
