Android Reveal New “LinkedIn” Beta App

LinkedIn, the social networking site geared up for business professionals, has now launched it’s existing app to Android devices, but only as an “early open beta.” Presently, the app is accessible on iPhone and BlackBerry but up until now, other platforms such as Android have gone by the way, even as telecomyatra.afaqs.com reported, when Android’s engineer “Cendric Beust,” joined the site, the app was still ignored.

News from Mashable has reported that the app can be downloaded if you join the LinkedIn Android group and is also available on Android OS 2.1 and higher. Currently the site which set up in 2003, and sees some 80 million registered users, allows it’s subscribers to manage their business contacts by way of “connections.” LinkedIn can be used to find current jobs, and for employers, the networking site is particularly useful in advertising jobs and finding prospective candidates. As with logging onto the site via your PC, the app allows you to source exactly the same information.

You can search contacts, accept requests, and whereas current iPhone users to this will argue that the app is far more established, Android will benefit from a faster search service. New features are expected in the coming months.

We are keen to update you as and when we get more information. Tell us what your thoughts are on Android’s involvement?
