For all the business-professional Android users out there, (and anyone who keeps their professional reference social network via LinkedIn) here's some useful news. LinkedIn has just opened a public beta for their new LinkedIn for Android app. This app is designed to make using your Android for staying professionally connected much easier. This app will work on any Android using OS 2.1 or higher. This marks the first time that LinkedIn has offered their product in a public beta format, but apparently they wanted to push it out before the holidays. Wouldn't a cool new job be an awesome Christmas present!
You just need to join their LinkedIn for Android Group to get the app download and assist in the beta. Some of the key features they tout are as follows:
- View updates from your professional network
- Search for people to discover things you have in common and establish new connections
- Respond to invitations sent from people in your professional life
- Keep in touch with your own connections on LinkedIn
You can check out more details at their official release on their blog: The LinkedIn Blog LinkedIn for Android Beta: Happy Holidays to the Android Community!
