LinkedIn has recently updated their iOS app to be Universal for supporting the iPhone and the iPad. The LinkedIn iPhone app has been around for a while, but the LinkedIn iPad app is brand new. This is big news for the company since 22% of LinkedIn’s active members visit them from mobile devices. The iPad app was built with a tablet interface in mind and they wanted to make sure that the app satisfied the needs of iPad users. LinkedIn noticed that iPad users were visiting the website mostly in the morning and between 7PM and 11PM.
The app includes sections for updates, connections, discussions, profile, messages, and activities. The LinkedIn iPad app lets you sync the calendar on the device with your profile information. This feature has also been integrated with LinkedIn’s iPhone and Android apps.
