So far, it looks to me that layouts don't sync between different mobile devices. Is this the case or am I doing something wrong?

I don't think they sync.

Would be a nice feature in future.

I definitely don't want my mobile layouts to sync b/w mobile devices. If FL adds this feature, please make it opt-in / configurable.

Thanks,

Donnie

I agree with you Donnie. Since I have 3 devices with widely varying screen sizes from a Kindle HD 10 down to my iPhone 6s with an iPad Mini in between those two, I think that it would be a problem to try do the same layout with the widely varying screen size. A layout that would be great on the 10 inch screen would probably unusable on the iPhone. So, if it happens, it would want it to be opt-in / configurable also.

Yes/No. 

FL's nomenclature has always been wrong, in my opinion. What is meant by "layout" is simply "All of the tabs that are open." This includes tabs which have two resources in the same tab. If you believe that having two resources open in the same tab is "unusable" on the iPhone, you would not like the syncing of "layouts." 

Using the common definition of "layout" (rather than FL/Logo's one), I agree with your basic premise: Different devices, different screen size/shapes should mean different layouts.

I would like it if they sync. If you have to reinstall for some reason you lose your Layouts. If different devices is an issue just make different Layouts like Bible study iPhone etc. I don't see why different devices would be an issue though. All mobile Layouts save is what tabs are open.
