LinkedIn App Gets Updated For BlackBerry SmartphonesBy: Zach Walton - December 12, 2012
LinkedIn updated its mobile app last month with the ability to edit a profile from within the app. The update only applied to iOS and Android with a BlackBerry app update nowhere in sight. It’s now here a month later, and it doesn’t have quite the same feature set.
RIM announced today the LinkedIn app has been updated for devices running versions six or seven of the BlackBerry OS. Like previous social media app updates, the LinkedIn update focuses primarily on integration with BlackBerry contacts.
First up, the update app now lets users sync and merge their LinkedIn connections with their existing BlackBerry contacts. The reverse is also true as you can move your BlackBerry contacts into your LinkedIn account. It’s especially useful when keeping track of colleagues that you may have just met.
The update also introduces the “Groups and More” tab that keeps track of, well, groups, but also your jobs. The Groups tab will list all of the groups that you are currently a member of while simultaneously displaying groups that you may be interested in. As for jobs, the tab will list all of your saved jobs while also displaying all of the jobs that you may be interested in.
