LinkedIn is a business-oriented social networking site and is mainly used for professional networking. After LinkedIn launched Apps on the smartphone platforms of iPhone and BlackBerry, now LinkedIn’s Android app makes its debut on the Android Marketplace last Thursday, bring the network on the go for its millions of smartphone users.
“LinkedIn for Android, is a continuation of our efforts to help you leverage the power of your professional network anywhere, anytime,” LinkedIn’s Chad Whitney wrote in a blog post. “Now, you can walk into any interview, any customer engagement or client meeting with the ability to look up the details on over 100 million professionals worldwide, in real-time.”
LinkedIn’s Android app first launched in beta in December. At the time, the app included the ability to browse profiles, accept network invitations and search. However, it didn’t include some key features, such as messaging.
LinkedIn for Android v1.0 is the complete experience, though. The app has six main modules: Updates, Search, Connections, Invitations, Messages and Reconnect. Each of these modules is pretty self-explanatory, but LinkedIn has included several additional features such as unified search (the ability to search your contacts and LinkedIn’s entire network simultaneously) and suggestions for people you may want to reconnect with.
