In an update today, Leica released version 2.0 of its Leica FOTOS mobile app for Android and iOS. The app is offered in both Free and Pro versions, the latter of which includes iPad support and is targeted at users who want to get more things done on mobile.

Leica FOTOS 2.0 provides users with access to their own personal Leica Account and 'seamless' integration with Adobe Lightroom CC (iOS/iPadOS). Assuming the user has the paid version of the app, FOTOS 2.0 includes a dedicated button for accessing Lightroom, which brings with it the tools to edit DNG and JPG images on a smartphone or iPad.

FOTOS 2.0 likewise includes an iPad-specific update that adds new features made possible by iPadOS, the version of iOS recently released for Apple's slates. With these, iPad users can use Split View and Slide Over for toggling between apps, plus there's the Drag & Drop functionality for sharing images by swiping.

The mobile app connects with the user's Leica camera using Bluetooth or WiFI. Once connected, the user can capture and transfer images from within the app, which also supports editing and direct sharing to social media platforms. Leica says it made a number of 'refinements' in FOTOS 2.0, offering things like faster gallery loading speeds and double the data transfer rates.

The Leica FOTOS 2.0 app supports the following camera models:

  • Leica S (Typ 007)
  • Leica SL/SL2
  • Leica M10
  • Leica M10-P
  • Leica M10-D
  • Leica Q/Q2
  • Leica TL/TL2
  • Leica CL
  • Leica C-Lux
  • Leica D-Lux
  • Leica V-Lux

Leica FOTOS 2.0 is available to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play now. The Pro version of the app requires a $49.99 purchase.
