So I heard Lightroom was free for IOS and Android. Downloaded and installed it, looked at a couple tutorials and then selected a few of my own RAW files for editing.

But wait...

When I opened my first RAW file and selected an editing tool, I was immediately taken to a new window with UPGRADE NOW at the bottom of the screen. Touched there and I was taken to a new window asking me to add a payment method. Say what?

Yeah... you can open and edit your own JPEG files but when you go to save the edits, the process is painfully slow. My other mobile photo apps are blazing fast. This is ridiculous. :

Limited/crippled features. Seems like a scam. mad

I always look for the little text "In-app Purchases" when I consider a free app.

Actually, I was lead to believe Lightroom "In-app purchases" were presets from other photographers. The description for the app itself mentions no "gotchas."
