LinkedIn version 1.0 has finally arrived for Google Android users. The app is the first released by the business social network for the world’s best selling smartphone OS, despite the fact that an iPhone application has been available since 2008.
Users the Android 1.0 app users are able to search the site, send messages, view updates and more.
The application specifically offers six “modules” which include updates, search, connections, invitations, messages and “reconnect” where users can find members, accept or deny connection requests and even find connection suggestions and check out their timeline updates.
According to LinkedIn there Android application is:
“A continuation of our efforts to help you leverage the power of your professional network anywhere, anytime.”
The program has been in beta for quite a while now which means most of the early bugs should be worked out (my limited testing showed a fairly decent first product) however more features and better integration are sure to arrive as the program develops further.
I for one like the prospect of looking up contacts before heading into meetings with them.
