If you have an iOS 8.1 or later Apple device, and do not have a Creative Cloud subscription or a desktop Lightroom, you too now can use the iOS version of Lightroom for free without the prior restrictions.

Lightroom has two versions available, one for the iPhone/iPod and for the iPads. With the new bigger and more powerful iPad Pro, things may get more interesting worfklow-wise.
