Adobe Lightroom Comes to Android

Lightroom Mobile has finally arrived on Android.

The mobile editing app, which is a free download for Lightroom 5.4 and above owners, was originally released for iOS devices last year (and reviewed by PDN here). 
The Android app will deliver the same functionality as its iOS companion, including the ability to generate smart previews of images that are roughly 5 percent the size of a RAW file but still editable like a RAW image. The mobile app lets you access images in your Lightroom catalog on a mobile device, select and reject images, apply presets and edits and have changes instantly sync with the desktop version of the program.
Lightroom Mobile for Android will run on Android Jellybean, KitKat or Lollipop versions of the mobile operating system and is available now in the Google Play store
Your mobile device will need at least a 1.67GHz ARMv7 quad-core processor, 8GB of internal memory and 1GB of RAM to handle the app.
