Lightroom's 'Android native' interface goes live in version 3.0


The mobile version of Adobe's Lightroom has just scored a neat functionality update that is quite likely to be a notable improvement for all fans of the app.

New Selective Brush enables photographers to selectively paint in enhancements to any part of their images. There is also a new ability to selectively erase linear and radial gradients, improving their usability during selective edits. You're also now given direct hold over the reins of Noise Reduction and Sharpening, which has been oft-requested by the regular users of Lightroom. In fact, the company claims that the app's UI has been "designed from the ground up" to be "fully Android-native".

Adobe Lightroom is getting an update today that apparently includes a completely redesigned interface. You can download the latest version of Lightroom for iOS here. Along with the interface changes, Adobe says the new, updated app will run faster and more efficiently. Essentially, every little piece of the app should look and feel better on Android devices, which is something we're happy about. Lightroom on Android was always a pretty competent mobile version of the desktop experience, but it never felt all that snappy and native.
