Today is an anniversary of sorts. 1 year, 21 days ago we launched an entirely new LinkedIn mobile experience for iPhone, Android, and the mobile web at touch.linkedin.com. It was an entirely fresh start, focused on faster, simpler, better.
A lot has happened since then. A year ago, 10% of the unique users visiting LinkedIn were using one of our mobile apps, today it’s over 23%. In April, we gave birth to an iPad app, and in May we followed with a shiny new Windows Phone App that is rated 4.5 out of 5 stars. We’ve also made it easier to sign-up for LinkedIn directly from your mobile device, which now accounts for 15% of new member sign-ups.
