Adobe today released Lightroom Mobile for Android 1.4 and this release makes Lightroom Mobile free for any and all Android users, even those that do not have a subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud. This move follows Lightroom 2.0 for iOS which was also made available for free to all iOS devices in October this year, so it’s about time that Android users got similar treatment from Adobe.
Adobe says that the response to Lightroom 2.0 for iOS, which brought the Lightroom app for iPhones and iPads as a free download, has been “phenomenal” so it’s following up on that by making Lightroom for Android version 1.4 free for all.
This means that even someone who doesn’t have a subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud can use all of the editing, organizational and sharing features that are part and parcel of Lightroom on a mobile device, be it IOS or Android.
Users can also sign up for a free trial of Creative Cloud, or log in if they’re already subscribed, to get additional features such as the ability to synchronize files and edits with Lightroom on desktop or laptop, and even with Lightroom Web.
Adobe reiterates its commitment to making Lightroom for Android “better and better,” it promises more improvements for the app down the line, today though those who have been meaning to get it can do so without having to pay a single penny via the Google Play Store.
