The Good Adobe Lightroom mobile for phones has a well-designed interface and performs very well.
The Bad It's missing a lot of features that would make it a lot more useful.
The Bottom Line For rating and flagging photos already in Lightroom while you're killing time or for quick, rough edits, it's good. But the phone version of Lightroom mobile needs more features before it feels essential.

Adobe Lightroom on your phone is good, but needs some bulking up
As long as you're connected to a network, the selected collections and any operations you perform on the images on any platform are automatically synced among any logged in device. You can set the app to sync only over Wi-Fi as well. If you want to be able to work on photos while disconnected, you must enable offline editing on that device for the entire collection; you can't pick photos and just cache those. Otherwise, it dynamically downloads each image to your device as you open it and caches it temporarily.
If you import photos from your phone, it creates a collection of them which it then syncs back to the desktop catalog.
It loads into a screen of all the currently synced collections. Tapping on a collection presents you with a typical tile view of all the photos in it.
