iphone_app.pngACS Network has gone mobile. With our recent upgrade comes a cross-platform mobile web app.  This app will let you view and comment on content in the ACS Network. You can also create discussions and update your status. You can follow, like or send content. You can watch what your friends are doing or what everyone is posting.

 

It is accessed through a mobile browser at https://acsnetwork.jive-mobile.com and does not require distribution through the various app stores.  (You can then bookmark it and/or save it to your device's home screen to a make it easier to access repeatedly. This app has been designed for the iOS (iPhone, etc), Android, and Blackberry devices but should work on most smartphones with web browsers.

 

Bookmarking the app on iPhone

After  logging into the app via Safari:

  1. Tap the bookmark icon.  See the image below for an example. 
  2. Choose "Add  to Homescreen". 

  This will place the Jive icon on the last page of apps making  it easier to find the app again.  You can name it ACS Nework.

Bookmarking on the Android

After logging into the app via the browser, follow these steps:

 

  1. Tap the flag icon at the top of the screen. 
  2. Bookmark the page. 
  3. Long-press the newly addded bookmark. 
  4. Select “Add to Home Screen”

 

Bookmarking on the BlackBerry (requires OS6)

After logging into the app via the browser, follow these steps:

  1. Tap the Globe icon at the top of the screen. 
  2. Tap "Add to Homescreen".
