There’s a new Jive app in the Google Play store this month. A version is coming soon to iOS, too. If you’re like me and can’t wait to see whats in the new Jive-x App for Community Managers and don’t have an Android device, here’s a workaround.
The BlueStacks App Player available for PC and Mac allows you to run mobile apps from the Android platform.
Jive-x App for Community Managers
The Jive-x App for Community Managers was announced a month ago with the 2015.2 Jive Cloud Release that also includes Support Center.
After you install the Jive-x app from the Google Play store, you can run it in BlueStacks in full screen or in it’s own window. You can see BlueStacks running windowed in Windows 7 below. I’m showing the Jive-x app description, “Connect, Communicate, Collaborate”, from the store app.
Moderation and Notifications
BlueStacks even allows you to see notifications to apps as they come in.
The Jive-x app presents notifications for the inbox and both user and content moderation.
The interface is streamlined for the Community Manager moderation on-the-go need.
