LinkedIn is the social network for professionals and provides an excellent way of keeping in touch with work colleagues as well as finding out information about company workers. The LinkedIn Android app provides access to a selection of options available on the main site, making it possible to keep in touch and up to date wherever you may be.
The app can be used to view your list of connections as well as viewing your contacts details and status update. Connections can also be contacted through the app and their contact information can be added to your phone's address book. Management of your inbox is a little limited, but it's good enough for basic messaging on the move.
LinkedIn's Android app notifies you of invitations to connect with other and suggests other users of the service you may know based on the people you already have in your contacts. When meeting up with a contact in person, a Bluetooth connection can be used to swap contact information.
The latest v3 upgrade gains these new features:
• New beautiful and simpler design
• Now you can invite, follow, like, share and comment on content right from the updates stream
• New personalized and customizable navigation for quicker access to your favorite features on LinkedIn
• Ability to follow Influencers to get access to original insights and content
• Fixed crashes encountered when updating profile
LinkedIn is a different type of social network and the Android app makes it easy to manage your connections while away from your computer.
