Ads by Google

The business networking site, LinkedIn, just released the iPad version of its mobile app, and it’s available for free download. The app is optimized for the iPad’s Retina display, and the user interface has been completely revamped.

On their company blog, LinkedIn notes that that mobile platform is the fastest growing segment of their membership base, and so they not only released the new iPad 5.0 version of their app, but also revamped their iPhone, Android, and Mobile Web products to address the needs of their users.

The LinkedIn iPad contains all the features found the web version of the site, including profile overview, updates, news, and direct mail Inbox. The mobile app also takes full advantage of the multi-touch features of the iPad, and many users will find navigating their account easier than on a computer browser.

The three main areas of the app – Updates, Profile, and Inbox – are all accessible in the user dashboard. The interface is clean, and pages open quickly.

The new app also includes a calendar feature that lets you see LinkedIn profile information for people you’re meeting with. You can do a search for other LinkedIn members, as well keep up-to-date with your groups and share content with your network.

You can access your LinkedIn profile via their new mobile iOS version of the Safari web browser. The web version mirrors the new app, even including the dashboard. Try it here: tablet.linkedin.com.

The LinkedIn app requires iOS 4.0 or later, is also compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch.
