Adobe ditched the Creative Cloud requirement for Lightroom mobile on iOS back in October, and now it's doing the same for Android. With an update to version 1.4 for the Android app, the photo-editing software is now free to use. This means that you'll no longer need that desktop software subscription to use it. However, if you want your edits and files to sync on the desktop, you'll have to splurge for Creative Cloud.

You can certainly employ the app only on your Android device, though, and doing so allows you to edit those raw DNG files that the mobile OS captures. What's more, Lightroom mobile offers handy tools, like the ability to copy and paste edits, to help streamline your workflow. If you haven't tried the app yet, the latest (free) version is now available from Google Play.
