Have a look at the Skylum CEO answer here: https://shadesofcolormagazine.com/author/jmm78/
"... we will definitely come out with Luminar for both iPad and iPhone, but only after we release Luminar 4, which is scheduled at the end of this year. And after we release Luminar Cloud, which will be in beta testing in July. Right now, we already have several prototypes of Luminar for mobile platforms, but we want to make sure that we come out with exactly those features that will bring additional value to users – that will bring something new to photographers and artists. And once we have these new, unique, and interesting solutions ready, it won’t matter how many apps already exist on the market since we’ll bring people something that no one else has given. Skylum’s philosophy is not to copy, not to duplicate, but to create and introduce new value. And we are now forming this value... "
So I left Adobe because of the yearly charge and the need for their cloud for my Mac and iPad. To move over to Luminar 3 with a have baked DAM and before they get it up to speed of other DAMs and fixed the bugs they are gonna charge for the next version which may be as troubled as Luminar 3 was and still is at some level ? Really first Skylum has never owned up to releasing beta software as a finished product and now we are to trust that another $50 to $90 investment will fix all ? so in the first 14 months of owning Luminar 3 which I had great hopes for and still did till today all I have to do is pay for the next version after paying for the current version for a period of 12 to 14 months and then a m monthly cloud subscription on top of that . Sure sounds like Adobe Jr to me. Fix what you sold us and bring it up to par with the other software available with a DAM before you go off with the next version and a cloud service .
