Lync 2013 downloaded from Google Play doesn't work in The application installs correcly but then doesn't open : just a white blank screen. Any ideas anyone?

Same problem here. I think the problem is the updated Lync 2013 App (v5.4). The older Lync 2013 App (v5.1) worked ok. However I'm not sure if I ever tried the older Lync client with the firmware.

Just installed Lync 2013 v5.4 myself, and same issue here, only white blank screen.

I've got the same issue. Does the older version (v5.1) still exist somewhere? Does it work reasonably well? I'm happy to have an old version over nothing at all ...

Found 5.1 version on Aptoide and it still works as before. Funny thing that 5.4 from Google Play does work just fine on Galaxy - but not on Jolla. Go figure.

That is update on 5.4 issue, see "Lync Mobile users cannot sign in after they update to client version 5.4" from Microsoft

I think the linked issue has nothing to do with the problems that occurs on the Jolla. 1) There is no certificate warning after starting the App (only a blank page). 2) We already use public certificates.
