Hookflash for LinkedIn means no more searching for contact details, dialing multiple office and mobile numbers, or paying for expensive long-distance and roaming fees. Simply tap the LinkedIn contact you want to reach on Hookflash and instantly chat with them (video, voice and text).

It’s been a seamless experience working with the LinkedIn Developer Network. Using LinkedIn APIs allows our members to use their Linkedin identity to sign in to Hookflash, and enables the rich professional profiles of members and their connections to be seamlessly integrated into the Hookflash experience.

I highly encourage you to check out the Hookflash app and start using your iPad as a professional communication tool.
