After two years of not being apart of the iPad ecosystem, LinkedIn, the wildly popular social network for professionals, has finally made its way to the world’s most dominate tablet. This move was long overdue, sparingly, it’s a no brainer as the company acknowledged that 22 percent of its active members have been visiting on mobile devices. So why it took so long to develop a native iPad application, is anyones guess.
The new LinkedIn app for the iPad, allows professionals to start the day and end the day with LinkedIn. The new application does many things similar to its mobile app for Android and iOS phones like, access a stream of updates from your connections, including who’s changed jobs and who’s viewed your profile, access news that connections are sharing and see the latest discussions from the groups you are members of.
Furthermore, you can also access your own profile, connections and activity dashboard and send and or receive your LinkedIn invitations and messages from your inbox in the network, and lastly, the ability to sync the device’s calendar with your LinkedIn profile information. Again, this is nothing new for those out there rocking the smartphone application.
LinkedIn will also debut a iPad-friendly mobile website as well, accessed by visiting touch.linkedin.com. So, head over to the App Store on your iPad to grab this bad boy (iTunes link), and tell us how you like it?
