As a paying CC customer, who pays as much for your product as those who chose to own Apple products, I feel it's a little bit unfair to give preference to a certain subgroup solely based on their device choices.

I do understand how software is released and that it does take some amount of work to get it working on the various Android hardware, but I just want to make sure you know (I'm sure you do) that there are many of us out there that want to have this feature too.

I'd be happy to be part of the beta - I use lightroom on iPad so I'm familiar with what it does.

Please add me to the list of people wanting access to the beta, I have 6 different Android devices I can test it on, though I bet one of them won't cope too well ;)

FYI, If there was an email offering the beta I never got one.

I'd like to be involved. I've had several Apple iOS devices in the past - but am currently running with all Samusung - Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition and a new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 phone. Both devices have the higher PPI screen resolution - which I hope that the new Adobe mobile apps for Android will be able to support.

thx

BTW - Adobe CC cloud member too.

I'm not sure why this question doesn't warrant a confirmation - I don't have an Android phone or tablet, but I'm still curious..

Agreed. Now that I realize you can't import canon cr2 files into it I'm not sure how much use their is. I got the photo mate r2 app which works well for what I want in an android raw work flow. I still do the critical work on my desktop but it's nice to be able to work with raw files on my tablet and phone.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Now we have Lightroom Mobile for Android Phones why not Android Tablets.

Strange that Lightroom Mobile for Android Phones came out rather than for Tablets. I am sure that the form factor of tablets would provide a better experience, so could we have anLR Mobile for Tablets spoon please?

Hi !
Thanks for this Android version. It works dell, but... It is really useless on phone ! I was waiting fort a tablette version, which would improve my workflow.
Please, release a tablette version.

So :-) that an Android version has been released - I am sure that this is a huge technical achievement.

However, I have a tablet :-(

Would it be possible to get at least confirmation of IF a version for tablets will follow and perhaps an idea of when?

Many thanks!

I don't know what all the fuss is about. You can install Lightroom mobile on a tablet provided you use an alternative store such as aptoid. It works fine on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 running custom rom.

From: http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjourn...

"Lightroom mobile is optimized for phones running Android 4.1.x and later. The user experience is not yet optimized for tablets and large screen sizes. We have restricted the availability to the screen sizes that we know work the best for the present rather than making it available as a sub optimal experience across all the screen sizes."

Is there an Android app for tablets something we can expect in the near future?

Lightroom Mobile should be available on Android tablets. This is far more useful to me than my phone. As well, Lightroom Mobile should be able to access the external Micro SD card for photos. Internal memory is severely limited.
I realize this isn't available yet, but it there a timeframe for release?
