Wondering if anyone else is running into this issue:
During our testing we identified that an app built using the new SDK 18.104.22.1687-1.4.1-2 failed to load past the splash screen when running the app through the AirWatch VPN client. It appears that combination of AirWatch and the new SDK causes this issue. Running the app while on the company network or manually enabling VPN when outside the network loads the app without any issues. Mobile apps build on SDK 22.214.171.1242-1.3.0-2 and lower work correctly with AirWatch.
We were able to replicate the issue on the stock "ACME" app built using SDK 6.2.
