Yes,You are right the apps that use certificate pinning wont work in an MITM situation.They didnt work when i tried so i think its a fair assumption to make that they wont work in corporate and academic networks that utilize SSL inspection unless the administrator specifically exempts that traffic and doesnt try to MITM it.
