I’ve had the MobileIron security on my IPhone X for a couple of years now and about 6 months ago I started having problem with my fitness apps on my Apple Watch. I usually carry both phone and watch when I run. Running distances weren’t accurate. Over an 8 mile run, I would lose about a mile. The problem went away after I deleted the MobileIron app and discontinued the device management. And then it came back again after I re-installed. I would delete it permanently but unfortunately I need it for work. Very frustrating.
While providing a secure way of accessing corporate email and another resources, the app is quite buggy. Launched automatically when Email+ or other in-suite apps, it’s supposed to verify device compliance, log in the user (FaceTime) and then hand back over to the originating app. But this never happens - it just verified device compliance and stops there. One need to switch back to Email+ in order to be once again forwarded to this buggy app before user authentication happens. Also, might be my company policies, but as new iOS versions are not automatically approved, more then once, I had my phone automatically update iOS overnight and the first check of emails using Email+/MobileIron in the morning rendered my device non-compliant and Email+, together with my on device email and settings is wiped and I am without access to my corporate resources until some IT resource person have had their morning coffee and decided that the iOS security update indeed made the device more secure. This app and the whole suite uses old fashion security approaches and offers little convenience for the users. If you are stuck with this solution because of your company polices, I’m so sorry for you.
This, and the Docs@Work companion, have been nothing but trouble. Crashes, bugs, etc. Our IT department chose this app for security purposes, but the app functionality for the user is nothing but trouble. The document management functions work/don't work inconsistently. Just trying to sign a document can be an exercise in frustration. The pop up menus appear and disappear on a whim and the signature save function will work then not work. I'll amend a document then save it, then the app won't let me have access to it again. Now I'm told that there is a new update and Mobileiron will no longer work with any iOS less than 10, so my 3rd Gen iPad (which can't be upgraded beyond 9) won't run it, which means I would have to spend hundreds of dollars on a new iPad just to run Mobileiron, which isn't even working properly on my iPhone 8 with iOS 11!
I believe this app is causing my iPad’s screen to freeze. It was working fine until I installed this program and supporting apps, apps@work and docs@work. I wiped my iPad and set the iPad up as a new iPad. Everything was working great. For 4 days, I had no issues. Had my company enable my account to install MobileIron and configuration. Not 5 minutes after the entire setup, the screen started freezing. Games, web browsing, Facebook app, all freeze for about 10-20 seconds at sporadic times.
Our company switched to this product for some unknown reason. I believe it has something to do with security but we were not told the reason. With that said, it’s terrible. You have to have it open to known when you have a new e-mail. This drains your battery. Another item is that I can no longer go to a simple URL link. Maybe this is also a security issue? But I can manually go to the link by copy and paste so what does it matter? I would never recommend this product to anyone… IF you have a choice.
I’m a loyal, frequent user of MobileIron. It worked great, until a recent defect I noticed. When sending an email (from Outlook in desktop with bullet point numbering) the numbering shows up incorrect when viewing the email through the MobileIron app. I’m still giving you five stars because it’s a great app, but please fix this defect!
My original problem was the lack of search capability within email folders. When I tried to submit a bug report in-app, the TO line was blank. That started a search for a tech support email on their website. Nada. So I come to the App Store and the feedback link doesn’t work either. The company probably thinks customers are happy since they’ve had no bug reports!
This app is used by companies to protect information, known as security. It’s a necessary evil for sure. But for those complainers talking about privacy and what the app is capable of, talk to your company. It is the company’s decision on what settings or restrictions MobileIron is capable of. The company is the customer of MobileIron and they decide what it can and cannot do. You look like fools if you think otherwise and complain.
Had to load this on personal phone for company emails. I do not work there anymore and although I have deleted this from my phone the app is still controlling everything. How does it control everything when it has been deleted? Their tech is not very helpful because I do not know some pin from the company I no longer work at nor have access to their email system.
Most of the negative reviews seem to be due to functionality restrictions put in place by the IT departments that deploy it. Functionality missing, e.g. inability to share, has been configured in the policy distributed by your company, not by MobileIron.
They have no way of disabling screen capture on the apps related to work . So they disable the screen capture on the whole phone . So it’s either you lose the screen capture feature which is very important for every day usage or you use their app for work . No thank you I will check my email when I get to work instead . What a shame !
My company forced us to install this software. The only thing I can see that it does is randomly delete my contacts. My phone still knows who it is but I can no longer use Siri or hands free in car because it won’t attach their name to their number. Some contacts now have two to three entries. I fix a contact and 2 minutes later it’s gone. HIGHLY UN-RECOMMENDED
Please fix this soon. I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out why this feature disappeared and then found out it was MobileIron causing the problem. Very frustrating as I would expect this kind of issue to be fixed very quickly in a couple of days not a couple of months.
I’ve been trying for half a day to install and activate the MDM profile. No go so far. App crashes and is not at all intuitive. Gave up. I’ll check my mails when I go to the office, thank you. When the rest of the world is trying to make it easy to work remotely, I don’t see any value in an app like this.
Somehow, this app worked for around a day after they supposedly “updated” for iOS/iPadOS 13 but hasn’t allowed you to open attachments in Docs@work since. Ironically everything is fine for the iPhone and iOS 13 but not so for the iPad. Get it together guys, iPadOS isn’t really different than iOS yet.
Face ID Copy and paste from within apps to outside them Allowing mail app to sync in real time instead of having to open manually and check for new emails Export calendar to main phone calendar on iOS similar to how contact sync to the main phone contacts
The finger print sometimes works and most of the times i have to type my passcode? I dont understand cause you have the option to enable touch id and it works like 2 out of 10 times? What kind of crap is that. Then dont even say touch id is available.
The sharing in messages option has been disabled with the update. This is horrible and really needs to be fixed as soon as possible. I spent so much time trying to get this fixed only to find out this app is causing it not Apple.
Most of the time it doesn’t work. I have to force stop it and open again. Very clunky and unreliable. I have tried reinstalling from scratch multiple times and issues still persist. Please fix already!!!!
iPhone 8 Plus, iOS 12.3 Without exceptions, app continues to crash within a split second. Other apps (for work) rely on this app. Example: Tunnel won’t stay open, the VPN switches off. No time to troubleshoot phone. I have work to do.
This app has made my work email, documents and calendar clunky and not user friendly. My calendar won’t even work with my Apple Watch anymore. Very disappointing when new app makes technology less efficient.
Since the update to iOS 11, I can no longer share photos via a share sheet into Messages. Very inconvenient. A company of this size and importance should be ahead of these updates. Please fix immediately.
