I downloaded the update.
I still don't understand why projects don't queue up by staleness in review mode (iPad version) as they do in the desktop version. Why would they queue up according to the order in the project menu? I think I'm missing something.
The documentation does suggest that the intention was to sort them, although the description is ambiguous ("in order of last review, from the most to the least stale"). By all means, use Contact Omni to send in your vote that this be changed if this is important to you. There are certainly plenty of things they would like to do, and only so many hours in the day; sending in feedback helps align their priorities with yours.
