LinkedIn App Gets an iOS 7 Update, Mobile EndorsementsBy: Josh Wolford - October 2, 2013
LinkedIn has just launched updates to both their iOS and Android apps – but the iOS app is getting the biggest overhaul.
Today, it’s finally LinkedIn’s turn to get dressed up for the iOS 7 party. The new app falls in line with iOS 7’s design changes, and LinkedIn says that it features “flatter, cleaner and more modern designs” like sharp edges and soft colors. Basically, it fits in with iOS 7’s look. Most major social apps (like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, reddit) have already updated their apps to fit in with Apple’s new operating system.
Ok, here’s where Android users can start to listen. Both LinkedIn apps now feature endorsement capabilities. That means that you can both accept others’ endorsements of you on the go and endorse your contacts on the go.
There’s also a new tutorial to help new users get the most out of the service.
“For new members visiting LinkedIn from a mobile device, you will now be greeted with a step-by-step guide to help you take advantage of some of the essential tools LinkedIn has to offer. From building your network, to joining groups that matter to you, to following channels for professional news that keeps you up to date, our new guided experience will help you get the most out of LinkedIn,” says LinkedIn’s Duncan Osborn.
And let’s not forget about Pulse, the news app that LinkedIn purchased earlier this year. It received its own iOS 7 refresh as well.
