Release Details:

Syncplicity iOS app for AirWatch: 3.4.6

Supported on iOS 7 and above.

The Syncplicity iOS app for AirWatch must be distributed to end users by IT administrators through the AirWatch console. IT administrators need to add the Syncplicity iOS app from the Apple App Store into their AirWatch app catalog and end users need to install the app from the AirWatch catalog on their device. When installed this way the Syncplicity app behaves as an AirWatch managed app and will respect the AirWatch MDM policies.
