Adobe has revamped the editing screen in Lightroom for Android.

Some issues that created slow performance, disappearing edits, and the screen mysteriously going black have also been fixed, according to Adobe.

The full changelog is available from the Adobe LIghtroom Journal. The update to the app, which puts you on version 1.2, is on its way to the Google Play Store

The impact on you: Adobe’s suite of tools is the gold standard for photo editing. This update adds some needed features if you plan on more extensive photo work from your Android phone or tablet. However, keep in mind you’ll need a subscription to Adobe’s Creative Cloud to partake.
