LinkedIn has spruced up its Android and iPhone apps to run 10 times faster than their predecessors with a range of refreshed features. The business-focussed social network has also revealed a new HTML 5-enabled mobile website for tablets and smartphones.
Rather than overcomplicating themselves, the LinkedIn apps have zoned in on four key areas of interest to users: Updates, Inbox, You and Groups. The Updates feature is a Facebook-esque newsfeed with a top bar reserved for LinkedIn Today, the company’s aggregated news portal. Inbox is reserved for your messages and LinkedIn requests, while the You section allows you to update your profile on the go.
Last but not least is Groups, a new addition to LinkedIn’s mobile apps. As the update’s most requested feature, according to the social network, it allows users to view and contribute to their LinkedIn groups. Makes you wonder why it wasn’t there already.
The LinkedIn app is free to download from the Android Market, so there’s never been a better time to upload your CV for all the internet to see.
