LinkedIn App Now in Marketplace, Better Than iOS & Android Versions

May 16, 2012 at 10:04 GMT | By Darlington Moyo

Windows Phone Marketplace can check another major app off the "Windows Phone doesn't have this app" list, constantly cited by fAndroid and iSheep alike. LinkedIn quietly rolled out the app over the weekend and officially announced the release in a blog post on Monday.

LinkedIn's Windows Phone app takes advantage of the platform's Metro UI and Live Tiles, creating a very different experience from LinkedIn's other app offerings. You can still access all of the same resources, including updates from your connections, your profile, the latest LinkedIn news, groups you follow and your inbox. But the Windows Phone app offers a couple of extra perks.

The Windows Phone version includes "Jobs" and "Companies" tiles, which are missing entirely from the iOS and Android apps. From the "Jobs" tile, you can browse through suggested jobs, search for jobs, and save specific listings.

From the "Companies" tile, you can search for and follow various companies' activities. LinkedIn is an especially useful tool for job hunting and networking, so having the Jobs and Companies tiles available on the Windows Phone app is a big plus.

Overall, LinkedIn for Windows Phone is a speedy, beautiful and useful app for people who want to keep connected to their professional networks. With a few upgrades, it might even compete with the social network's browser-based experience.

The LinkedIn app is available for free from Markeplace
