I would really be interested in viewing, updating, and interacting with the Esri GeoNet community on my mobile phone. Would you like to see Esri develop a GeoNet Mobile App for iOS and Android?
Is there a Jive app that can be used on phones that would would support the GeoNet content?

GeoNet is designed to be responsive on mobile devices. There is a Jive app that you can access GeoNet on using your Esri Account login.
I've download the ios version but for me personally, I find the browser versions are easier for me on an ipad. But I think Robert Scheitlin, GISP uses and likes it, if he wants to pipe in. I just tested my version again and it was crashing, but that might just be my install.
I still like the jive app on my iPhone. I am using it for this reply. The setup is simple and the ui is pretty clean. There is an issue with staying signed in more than 24 hours though and you have to sign out and back in though.
I don't think the 24 hour is exclusive to the app, Geonet signs me out every midnight no matter how I access it. Also mobile-friendly layouts are also the responsibility of an author, not just the reader. The default jive editing environment for Geonet only goes partway to creating good mobile-responsive pages that include imagery. There are a few dumb things it does like auto-rotating images or refusing to resize, when it shouldn't, that you just have to learn by doing and know when to dive into the <> source code mode and delete the offending & problematic jive statements. In general, jive has problems with larger external-URL or social media images in any responsive layout, but will work well with mobile-responsive image layouts if the larger images are added as images not links.
