New Relic Mobile for iOS is compliant with standard application stores, including Apple App Store, Google Play Store, Amazon Appstore, and others. Before you install and configure New Relic Mobile functionality with your mobile applications, follow these guidelines for compatibility and other requirements.
New Relic Mobile for iOS only monitors your app while it is in the foreground. The agent does not monitor background services while the app is closed. For more information, see our Mobile data privacy and security documentation.

Testing is not supported
Our Mobile agents are designed and tested to work in a normal app lifecycle. New Relic does not support running any testing environment on applications with the agent. Testing can cause conflicts and unpredictable behavior.
Potential method replacement conflicts
Our iOS agent utilizes method replacement during run time. This may result in a conflict with other libraries that also implement method replacement, such as ReactiveCocoa, Aspects, and AppleGuice.
