My Experience with SCN Mobile App ‘Jive’

I am not sure how many of you are using mobile based SCN app. Its called ‘Jive’.  Few days back i installed this app at my android phone and believe me i am just loving it.

 

There is already document available at SCN explaining about from where to download this app, which OS supports it, how to register etc.

check below links for more details:

 

http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-42262

 

When you launch this App, it would look like this. This screen itself attracted me because of its beautiful background color.

Then, You are required to enter community URL: http://sap-scn.jive-mobile.com/

 

NOTE: This link can be easily opened in mobile browsers.

 

You need to enter the activation code that you have received after registering your device at your profile page>Edit preferences>Mobile (for more details view the above mentioned document link) once you click on Log in button.

Here you go. This is home screen of the app. It is so beautiful.

You will get notifications from the group/people you are following to.

You can see the device authorization status of the device registered by viewing profile page.

What i am missing here are: Points, missions, badge and few more details.

 

So folks have you tried it? Looking forward to hear your views.

      One more important point is that it get the notifications to the device from the groups we are following. As JK mentioned its really a good app for those who want to follow the updates on the move.

      It's a great app and I use it daily.  It's very practical for staying connected while on the go: at SAP TechEd, for example.

      There's also a handy send button so that I can forward the URL to colleagues or myself if something needs to be followed up on.

      Yes, it would be nice to have the reputation program integrated but at least the app offers increased opportunities for members to be the first to reply correctly to a thread. 😉

      nice app been using for a very long time, but only problem is screen loading takes some time may be due to connectivity , apart from that everything works smooth.

      Also I have noticed that the data usage is very high when compared to other apps.

      Author's profile photo Former Member
      Former Member

      Yes because it loads the screens like the browsers so obviously the data usage is high..!!!

      Author's profile photo Midhun VP

      It's not only because of that actually. Even you are not running the app you can see the data used by the app is higher, its because of the background process of the app. It seems like background process is higher than the foreground.

      Hi Jitendra,

      I had already tried this app months ago.

      As Midhun VP  mentioned, this app is good when we want to get updates and notifications on the move.

      Except that i don't like any thing about this app, first thing limited functionality as already mentioned

      The thing that I hate the most is even afterr pressing Back button the app does not exit and I have to click Home button to exit the app( just shows it was directly ported from IOS and does not use Android functionality)

      I prefer to open full Desktop Site on my Chrome or Dolphin Browser and can do everything thats possible on my laptop 🙂

      Regards,

      Vivek

      +1 Vivek.

      And I miss the "report abuse" button. The rating stars & review for blog post too. And you cannot share via LinkedIn or Twitter either.

      Still, it's a nice application for reading blog posts and being notified when new stuff is out. But I'm really missing some cool features to use it more often.

      Regards,

      Nick.

      I have installed Jive Application  on Samsung Android Phone When I give URL in Jive Application. It

      requested to enter Jive URL  I entered http://sap-scn.jive-mobile.com/   in Jive Application to connect

      but couldnt able to connect It is showing a pop up message to enter correct URL.

      The same URL I have used in browser It is connected with activation code.

      How can I get connected through Jive

      Author's profile photo Jason Lax

      There are two ways to connect: app and browser. However, you have to authorize your account for mobile access. Please read through Mobile Browsing Using SCN Mobile Apps: iOS, Android, Blackberry

      If you have more questions, please post a new discussion thread in SCN Support

      SCN should come up with direct installation of android application on phone . Rather than installing Jive to give activation code. The procedure seems to be uncertain A member who is having already an account in SCN Member need to install jive to get connected. That is something different from other android applications

      I dont see an Icon on phone to connect directly Everytime I have to use browser to get connected

      To receive notification we have to install Jive we can also get email notification through gmail .

      As said byVivek Singh Bho   There is limited functionality Yes I agree.

      If i want to use SCN on my Phone I have to use Browser to get connected I believe its not an android application. It is just a browser but not android application.
