Jive Software is rolling out what it is describing as its biggest update to its mobile portfolio yet.

While Jive does provide apps for BlackBerry, these upgrades (along with a new mobile SDK) appear to focus primarily on the two biggest mobile operating systems permeating both the consumer and enterprise markets: iOS and Android.

The big focus for these new versions is really to push as much content to mobile devices as possible for actual editing and collaboration rather than just viewing while on the go.

Here's a rundown of what to expect:

  • Jive for iPhone 2.0: The upgrade includes a new slide-out side menu, a customizable news feed, and a more intuitive navigation menu for streamlining the Q&A process as well as working in dedicated internal communities with colleagues. On the security side, the iPhone app offers more options for preventing local storage capabilities and the ability to remotely revoke access to network content. The app is also supposed to run 50 percent faster now.
  • Jive for iPad: A newbie for Jive, this is another medium for Jive Software users to keep tabs on projects while in transit. Some of the key features include a rich-text editor for making new content (i.e. documents, blog posts, taking notes, etc.) and a visual search filter.
  • Jive Present 2.0: Targeted towards field sales teams in particular, this mobile app is designed to set up a link between said teams and content creators. It also offers control over who can read, receive and then share that content with others.

While the iPad version is already available, Present 2.0 for Android is scheduled to debut in July.
