Some have had issues with a couple of dependencies not being installed by npm. Running: npm install ticons underscore may be necessary.

I can't connect to my server instance

If you are running your server using the command meteor you should define the URL where the mobile application will try to connect meteor --mobile-server, replace by your IP or domain.

This is necessary because the mobile application download all files to run locally and then start the connection with your server, as you are running as develop mode this is necessary.
