When an item is removed (deleted, unpublished, reassigned) from a Mobile Library feed on an Android device using Symantec Mobile Management, the previously downloaded item is kept on the device. The item may be an application, document, or media file.


Symantec Mobile Management 7.2


If a Mobile Library icon is updated, the previously downloaded icon is cached for 7 days and is not changed. Only when an item's version is updated, will an updated or new icon display immediately in the Mobile Library on the Android device.

Depending on whether an item's version or only it's icon is uploaded or downloaded/installed determines whether the item displays in the Updates tab or Library tab on the Android device.
