It seems like it’s been a long while since first hearing about a LinkedIn application coming to BlackBerry smartphones. There was a hands on video and even some early feature mentions. Thankfully, the wait is finally over and BlackBerry professionals can carry their LinkedIn network in pocket!
The LinkedIn app has six modules (tabs at the top) that include the following:
- Network Updates. View and share crucial business intelligence and updates with your network. Perfect for those spare moments between meetings.
- Search. Search across over 60 million global professionals, and get the answer back in seconds. We’ve implemented a unified search across both your direct connections and the entire LinkedIn network.
- Connections. LinkedIn is your address book in the cloud. Get quick access to any of your connections to get their up-to-date profile information, and the ability to send them a message immediately.
- Invitations. Why wait to get back to your desk? Accept outstanding invitations immediately.
- Messages. Messaging is one of the reasons that BlackBerry owners love their devices, and we’ve worked hard to integrate your LinkedIn Inbox.
- Reconnect. You can’t leverage your network if you don’t build it. This module brings suggestions for new connections to you anytime. Now you can build your network from anywhere, in seconds.
In addition, the app offers some native features:
- Contacts. Integrate your LinkedIn connections with your BlackBerry address book, and view the profile of any contact directly on your BlackBerry.
- Messages. LinkedIn invitations and messages will now appear in your BlackBerry Inbox, just like any other email. You can also view the LinkedIn profile of the sender of any email you receive.
- Calendar. You can now view the LinkedIn profile of any attendee of a meeting on your BlackBerry calendar.
The LinkedIn app is immediately available for the BlackBerry Curve, Bold and Tour all on OS 4.3 or higher. For more info visit linkedin.com/blackberry or for a direct download go to m.linkedin.com/blackberry/download from your BlackBerry Browser.
