Yes that is it… if you are a Windows User or an Android user when it comes to things like Lightroom Mobile and Aurora HDR you are left right out in the cold.
I have been watching, on YouTube, all the wonderful things that the New Lightroom Mobile does if you have an iPhone or iPad… but even though the update fixed a few bug fixes in Lightroom Mobile for Android… we are left out in the cold.. because we don’t have half of the features that an IOS user has. We can’t do local adjustments… for a start and local adjustments is a major part of processing.
@BrenR1958 We are actively working to provide similar features to both our Android and iOS app users in near future. Thanks ^Akash

I did tweet Adobe about this.. and was informed that us Android users should get the full benefits of Lightroom Mobile in the near future.
Well I suppose that is some consolation.. but on second thoughts it is not… especially when Gartner has figures that say that 1.3 BILLION Android Devices were shipped out compared to 276 million IOS devices..
And what makes this even more of a bitter pill to swallow is according to NetMarketShare Android users make up 68.6% of the market
And when it comes to Windows -v- Mac the figures are even more astounding…
There are 90.95% Windows users … with MAC taking only 6.74% of the market.. So it begs the question… why are the likes of Adobe.. Aurora HDR catering more for the MAC/IOS market than the leading sellers Windows/Android?
I am just an amateur photographer and I can’t afford a £2,000 Computer to process my photographs… I can’t afford a top of the range iPhone or iPad … is my photography valued even less by these companies because I don’t use MAC/IOS?
Even with AuroraHDR the MAC users have had 2 major updates/releases that I can recall.. whilst the Windows users are given, is a link to sign up to get an email when the Windows version is released and as for a time-frame well that is up in the air.. sometime in 2017
It is really starting to PEE me right off… that us Windows/Android users are being left out in the cold… especially when the likes of Adobe charge me the same price for their photography package and I don’t get as much as other users get.. with regards to their Lightroom Mobile features.
