LinkedIn – the leading business / professional network – now has an iPad app. Their iPhone app was updated to become a universal app today.
Here’s the App Store elevator pitch on what the app provides:
Get on-the-go access to your professional network with LinkedIn for iPhone & iPad. Find and connect with more than 150M members worldwide, read the latest industry news, keep up-to-date with your groups, and share content with your network from anywhere.
It also offers support for the new iPad’s retina display.
It’s been a lot of years since I’ve logged in to LinkedIn, but today was as good an excuse as any to give the new iPad app a look. I was disappointed to see that I couldn’t edit my profile on the update (which was a million years out of date) – or if there is a way, I could not find it. I ended up spending a few minutes updating it in a browser and then using the iPad app to send some connection requests to various former work colleagues.
The app looks decent to me, but I’m hardly well-placed to judge it given my long time away from LinkedIn.
If you’re a regular LinkedIn user and have had a chance to try out the iPad app, please let us know what you think of it in the comments.
