About mobile productivity apps
Citrix-developed mobile productivity apps are a group of enterprise mobile apps offering IT a secure choice for their users’ email, web browsing, and remote access. Mobile productivity apps include Citrix Secure Hub, Citrix Secure Mail, and Citrix Secure Web.
Google has announced deprecation of Google Cloud Messaging. Citrix encourages customers to enable Firebase Cloud Messaging service (FCM) for uninterrupted mail sync and notifications on Android devices. For more information on how to enable Firebase Cloud Messaging read Google Cloud Messaging Deprecated by Google in this Citrix Knowledge Center article.

What’s new in the mobile productivity apps
For what’s new, known issues and fixed issues in Secure Hub, Secure Mail, and Secure Web, and the full set of documentation for each app, see:
Support for Android 5.x ended on December 31, 2018. For more information about supported device platforms for enterprise mobility management, see Supported device operating systems.
iOS 12 support announcement: We offer zero-day support for iOS 12. For Secure Mail, with iOS 12, we support the Group notifications feature. With this feature, conversations are grouped from a mail thread. You can quickly glance at grouped notifications on the lock screen of your device. Group notification settings are enabled by default on the device.
The Citrix VPN connection type in the VPN device policy for iOS doesn’t support iOS 12. Delete your VPN device policy and create a VPN device policy with the Citrix SSO connection type. For details, see VPN device policy.
Android P upgrade note: Before upgrading to the Android P platform: Ensure that your server infrastructure is compliant with security certificates that have a matching hostname in the subjectAltName (SAN) extension. To verify a host name, the server must present a certificate with a matching SAN. Certificates must contain a SAN matching the host name to be trusted. For details, see the Android Developer site article on Android P behavior changes.
Announcement on September 14, 2018: To meet a Google Play requirement due on November 1, 2018, we have altered our Secure Mail for Android background services. These services handle mail sync and notifications. The result of meeting this requirement is restrictions in Android 8 background execution limits to regulate resource usage. These restrictions could negatively affect Secure Mail synchronization, which occurs in the background. To make sure mail sync and notifications operate reliably, enable push notifications based on Firebase Cloud Messaging service (FCM) in Citrix Endpoint Management before November 1, 2018. Then, users must also turn on notifications for Secure Mail for Android. For steps to configure FCM-based push notifications, see Push notifications for Secure Mail. For more details from the Support Knowledge Center, see this article.
For end of life dates for earlier apps, such as ScanDirect, Secure Forms, Secure Notes, and Secure Tasks, see EOL and deprecated apps.
About the Citrix unified product portfolio:
If you’ve been a Citrix customer or partner for a while, you’ll notice new names in our products and in this product documentation. The new product and component names stem from the expanding Citrix portfolio and cloud strategy. For more detail about the Citrix unified portfolio, see the Citrix product guide.
Implementing this transition in our products and their documentation is an ongoing process. In-product content might still contain former names. For example, you might see instances of earlier names in console text, messages, and directory/file names. It is possible that some items (such as commands and MSIs) might continue to retain their former names to prevent breaking existing customer scripts. Related product documentation and other resources (such as videos and blog posts) that are linked from this product’s documentation might still contain former names. Your patience during this transition is appreciated.
How to deliver mobile productivity apps to users
You can deliver mobile productivity apps in two ways:
Through public app stores: Users download apps from the App Store for iOS and Google Play for Android. Windows currently isn’t supported for public-app-store distribution.
Through the app store. Users enroll their devices in Secure Hub to gain access to the app store. From the store, users can add mobile productivity apps and third-party apps that you secure with the MDX Toolkit or MDX Service. You control the configuration and operation of mobile productivity apps through administrative features, such as MDX policies and other Endpoint Management settings.
