Hi! I'm a new user and I love the idea behind Adobe Revel! It's not perfect yet (eg. Lightroom sync), but I know that you're working on new features.
Still, there are three small things which would enormously improve the user experience on iPhone/iPad:
1 When you scroll through the photos in full screen mode, the top bar should disappear (as in the standard photos app).
2 When I close Revel while uploading photos, it pauses the upload proces. Uploading new photos should continue in the background.
3 You should be able to view certain photos offline. Eg: being able to view certain events/dates offline.

Re #2, I'd like this too, but only if it uploads in the background while the device is plugged in and charging. I need battery more than I need all uploads to be up to date.

I would like to refresh this post.

I think the idea to hide the status bar when viewing pictures in full screen mode is a great idea. I know it is possible to do this by pressing the slide show button but the problem is that it shows the next picture automatically. I would like to view the picture for as long as I want and then move to the next one without the status bar.

Making pictures, Events and Albums accessible for offline viewing is a great idea especially for mobile devices. Please add this option and allow fine adjustments (offline mode for individual pictures, whole event, whole album and whole library). In addition you could show how much disk space would be needed for the offline mode and a progress bar that shows which pictures are already downloaded.

In addition you could add a mode which shows offline pictures only. This could be great for when you are on the go.

Thanks for the ideas and refreshing the post.

Answering a question you didn't specifically raise but was in the original. We do now upload for 10 min after you minimize the app on iOS.

Your full screen request is for the MAC correct?

I'll add your other requests to our feature request list the product manager reviews.

Thanks for your input and thanks for using Revel!

Hi Jason,

thank you for your reply and forwarding the ideas to the team. I think a 10 minute upload time frame after the app is closed is sufficient and good to know.

The full screen request is for the iPhone and iPad app. To make it clear I added two pictures. The first one shows the current implementation, the second one the way I think it would be better. The difference is just the hiding of the status bar on the iPhone and iPad.

Current implementation:

Implementation without the status bar (the status bar should only appear when the different buttons appear as well - otherwise when you just want to view the picture the status bar should hide):

Thank you
