I thought this may be interesting to the Photoshop Mobile/Photoshop Community

All of these planned improvements, are being prioritised in response to feedback from the community, so if you have further feature requests, Adobe is encouraging feedback.

Sorry, but I really don’t know why Adobe would have released the app as is, and call it Photoshop. I’m very disappointed, and having to wait another 6 months or more for the tools, filters, etc. that I use for photo retouching is discouraging. I guess I’ll need to learn how to use Afinity for iPad and Mac, to have a complete integrated workflow that actually works on iPad. 

I have been a Photoshop and Lightroom for over 10 years. This release has me questioning Adobe’s Subscription based service. Why have I, and still am, paying all this money when the competition is offering a better product for a one time fixed cost?? Adobe really dropped the ball on this release. Would have been better to delay it for another year, and offer a fully functioning app than making us wait months/years for a fully functioning app.

It is more interesting that raw support is actually Lightroom team job which could have being done in parallel with Photoshop for iPad. If there was 16bit tiff/psd ProPhoto or Adobe RGB export in LR for iPad no-one would complain so much because we will be able to complete the workflow - camera, raw develop and retouch, though there are limited tools in PS for iPad, there are enough tools to do a lot. It can also move fast the whole engine is there, there is simply no UI.
This is actually what I did when the PS came to iPad. I did not open it directly, really. I went to LR and try to send an image from there. Boom. All my images are in LR on the iPad, Adobe!
The "roadmap" here shows this as functionality will come first half of 2020. Even more it says LR premium which might mean the 1TB plan, which is even more worrying. It is interesting also that they kind-a focus on image compositing then retouch and grade - we will have to wait for some time to be able to do frequency separation, something which is a button in Affinity, which costs less then a month of subscription. Now having curves on day one but adding object select is...
