LinkedIn for iPhone 3.5: Communication Made Easier

November 19, 2010

Each time we update our iPhone application we like to focus on making improvements to existing features that are heavily used as well as providing new functionality.  In this latest release, we have focused our efforts in two areas:


  • Building a better Inbox experience to make it easier to manage communication with your professional network.
  • Providing a new way to keep track of what your professional network is doing on LinkedIn.

Our latest iPhone release is now available in the App Store for download.  Get it now:

Brand new Inbox

One of the most important solutions we offer on LinkedIn is the ability to communicate with people in your professional network and beyond.  We have built a brand new Inbox to make it easier to respond to and manage your messages while mobile.

The new Inbox offers quick access to viewing all of the messages you have received on LinkedIn, and a single tap lets you view all of your Sent and Archived messages.

Viewing Recent Activity

Keeping track of what your professional network is doing can be a challenge when you have a large network of connections.  It’s easy to miss important updates from past and present colleagues, and we wanted to enable you to ‘catch up’ on a specific connection when it’s convenient for you.  As part of this effort, you can now see the Recent Activity of any one of your connections right from their profile:

Like with Updates, you can easily like or comment on any one of the updates, or re-share it with your own network if it’s something you know they’ll be interested in.

What’s Next

We get a lot of feedback from our users on the features they’d like to see, and we are working our way through a long list of feature requests.  We’ll continue to update the application frequently to bring new and improved features as quickly as we can.

If you want to keep up with what we’re doing, and have a place to give us feedback and talk about your ideas for LinkedIn on the iPhone, please join our LinkedIn for iPhone group.
