I've had a play with it very briefly. I just happened to subscribe to CC last week when the 9.99 was available for people who don't own previous PS versions. You can add from the iPads camera roll which means you can also use a camera connection kit and add to the camera roll and then into the LR Mobile app. You have to go to the collections screen and then there is a settings button on the lower right of each collection thumbnail and you get the option there to add from the camera roll.
Adjustments are fast and you can do all the adjustments in the main basic area of LR but not the Detail or any of the others. You can crop and you can do very quick flag and rejects by just swiping up or down respectively. It immediately syncs back your changes to LR on your home computer if you are connected to internet. You can tell it to use 3G or not if you have 3G iPad.
In LR on your computer you can only sync from your collections pane and only base level collections can be selected (you can't select an entire collection set in one click) also you can't select individual pictures to sync (at least so far I can't find a way) so it may make more sense to make a dedicated collection for syncing and then reorder back at home?? Sync is fairly slow, I did 180 photos and it took at least 15-20 mins to get them all up to the iPad.
First impressions: somewhat useful for me...maybe....I will need to see if I can move files directly from memory card onto iPad and into LR but I can't see that working very well if you haven't already loaded the raws on your main computer/drives. It would end up being just a jpeg that would get synced and wouldn't have any relation to the raw file that you may import later at home??
Funny I just subscribed to the CC Photoshop Photography Program in the last few days too.
I was going to explain the iPad camera roll import thing but you've saved me the trouble
I've had a quick play and think it's pretty good. No problems here with syncing. I just simply created a collection called iPad dedicated for my camera roll imports.
