Just wondering if there is a good app for Linkedin. Any pointers?
I have the LinkedIn (Beta) and while it's not super functional it gives me updates, lets me add an updates, search, and see my contacts but that is the limit of what it does. It has a 3 star average but for a viewer only its decent to use.
If it gets more functionality like Droidin has I'll be happier.
THere is also linkedin mobile web which I haven't tried. Also there is DroidIin lite and Droidin. DroidiIn Lite is the trial/free version of Droidin. I haven't used it but the comments are iffy for lite and almost 4 for Droidin ($2.00).
I haven't tried either but if the beta I have doesn't improve I might.
Guys. you have to realize that LinkedIn provides practically nothing beyond very basic API (pretty much waht you get by going to LinkedIn Mobile: Your Trusted Relationships On The Go) It's by far nowhere near APIs such as Twitter or Facebook. So DroidIn and all the rest so far are "scrapers" feeding off ether mobile site alone (as is the case with so called LinkedIn-beta which has nothing to do with LinkedIn the company BTW) or in case of DroidIn - combination of mobile and main sites.
So the good news is that LinkedIn did open their API to developers about a month ago. Bad news is that it isn't much. Plus, so far there's really no revenue model to make anybody really interested in developing the "real" app.

LinkedIn just released beta for Android today.
Welcome to the LinkedIn for Android Beta!
The team and I are excited to have our members with Android phones get up and running with LinkedIn while mobile. For the Beta, our app is available only from our website (not the marketplace). There are a few things to know before you try to install the application:
* Your Android phone must be running OS 2.1 or higher to install the application
* As we’re distributing through our site for the Beta period, your phone must support installing applications from sources other than the marketplace. Some mobile carriers have locked down their Android handsets to not allow this. If you’re on a carrier that blocks installing the application, there is unfortunately no way to install the app prior to our official 1.0 launch in the Android Marketplace next year. The link below has instructions that include how to verify this.
Please visit LinkedIn - Linkedin Android from your Android phone for installation instructions and a link to the application.
