Bring back flagging gestures in Lightroom Mobile

Please!

I have long applauded Lightroom Mobile as an excellent example of an mobile application that is powerful and yet written and developed specifically for a mobile and touch interface. The gestures were a big part of this. Swiping between images and quickly flicking up and down to flag or reject them was brilliant. It was really easy to do one handed when holding a tablet, or even flicking through images on a phone.

Triage was quicker and more enjoyable lying on the couch with my iPad than sitting in front of my desktop with a huge screen and "full" or "real" Lightroom.

Now you can't flag an image when viewing it full screen. To flag an image you need to hit a rather small touch target.

I am really happy to see additional adjustment options added to the mobile version, such as sharpening, and the ability to edit captions, but please please please bring back the speed flagging and flagging gestures.

The worst thing that could happen is the interfaces between Lightroom Mobile and Lightroom 'Desktop' merge - please keep them separate. The two interface and user experiences need to be built independently for very different use cases and form factors, and the mobile interface has always been brilliant.

Agreed! I have stress injuries in both hands and much easier to swipe on my iPad than moving my arm/hand to touch a small target.  I am hoping this was just an accident.  Obviously usability personnel and research were lacking.  They did this once before and then brought it back.

Yes! I really miss rating photos with the old gestural interface. It felt like I could keep my eyes on the images; now I’m constantly having to look down at the tiny rating stars to select the rating I want. It completely breaks my flow; I’m back to rating photos in my Mac for now.

Please add your me-too vote and details of why you want the feature back to this topic in the official Adobe feedback forum: Lightroom mobile: Restore Speed Review? | Photoshop Family Customer Community . Adobe product developers actively participate in that forum but are rarely seen here (a user-to-user forum).

This was a stupid change. This needs to come back ASAP. Our mobile "couch culling" productivity has dropped significantly without the swipe gestures.

Fully agree. Even if Adobe brings back this feature, I am dissappointed for their totally wrong judgement for eliminating it. It shows that in some point in time, they lost their compass for the usability design of their mobile app.
