App webs are not working with mobile/tablet browser


While trying to access appweb on mobile/tablet browser, I am getting a blank page with following error message:

[ Note : I am talking about app webs for SharePoint hosted apps for SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 -> SharePoint online;  I am not talking about office web apps just to clear the confusion. ]

The endpoint /sharepoint app1/_layouts/15/mobile/authn_dispatch.aspx is not accessible in the context of a sharepoint App.

I did not figure out any workaround yet and don’t know whether there is any settings/way to get this working or this is by design?

I will update my findings once I get it sorted.

Please share your suggestion about this.

It turns out that Mobile views are not supported for app webs for this *preview*; and so the problem is by design itself.

By turning on desktop view, I managed to work the app webs only with Android’s default browser.

No success with iOS even for desktop view.

I have not tested with Windows tablet yet but I guess it will work there..!!
