Adobe Experience Manager Mobile Version 2017.2, released Feb. 17, includes new and improved features, and several bug fixes.


Dynamic Shared Content

With the dynamic shared content feature, APIs are used to update shared content without requiring any changes to the articles that refer to the shared content. Any changes made to the shared content and published are automatically updated in the referring articles, and users don’t have to initiate an update. Existing shared content needs to be modified to enable the new dynamic workflow.

Phone-Only or Tablet-Only Android Apps

Choosing supported devices while building an Android app can be limited to phones or tablets.

iOS Apps Support iOS 9 and Later

iOS apps built in AEMM v2017.2 support iOS 9 and greater, and are not compatible with iOS 8. The minimum supported phone and tablet devices on iOS 9 are the iPhone 4 and iPad 2, respectively. Users currently running iOS 8 will continue to have access to content in their installed apps.


iOS Viewers

The release includes improvements to app stability for articles containing memory-intensive overlays, and reliability and stability improvements when downloading content.

Bugs Fixes

It also includes several bug fixes. For the complete list, see Adobe’s Bug Fix Release Notes page.
