LinkedIn iOS Update Adds Endorsements
The latest version of the LinkedIn iPhone and iPad apps extend the professional networking site’s endorsement feature to mobile devices. Further, new members accessing LinkedIn via mobile will now be presented with a step-by-step guide to the service covering things like building a network and joining relevant groups.
The updated apps also adapt the flatter, cleaner layout of iOS 7. “Sharp edges and soft colors now emphasize news, updates and insights throughout the apps to help you quickly consume the information you’re after,” stated a LinkedIn blog post today. The company also updated its Pulse app to include swipe gestures for moving between articles.
LinkedIn now gets about a third of its traffic through its mobile apps, so keeping them refreshed is more important than ever for the company. LinkedIn’s iPhone and iPad apps (for all versions) each have earned three (out of five) star ratings in the App Store.
