Posted Aug 16, 2011

LinkedIn Corporation (NYSE:LNKD) started focusing heavily on their mobile strategy. Today they updated their iPhone, Android, and other mobile web apps. LinkedIn Mobile is growing 400% year-over-year in terms of users.

The updated app has a cleaner and simpler interface. There are now four main options that include the ability to view updates from your network, top news on LinkedIn Today, a section that allows you to view invitations and messages, and the ability to share updates.

The Update stream is currently the most used area of their mobile application. Groups was one of the most requested feature for the mobile application. LinkedIn also made their mobile website in HTML5, which includes a lot of the same functionality of its native app. Currently LinkedIn has 120 million users.
