LinkedIn app gets the thumbs up
The new LinkedIn application for the Blackberry has received a positive response from early users, although they say a few tweaks could make it even better.
LinkedIn for BlackBerry v1.0 was launched on Tuesday and lets professionals access the social networking site on the go.
Sales professional Matt Bush said the application was easy to use, although he added it offers a different experience to accessing the social network from a computer.
“When I access LinkedIn on my Blackberry, the home screen is network updates, a bit like Twitter,” said Bush. “Normally, I’m used to seeing my inbox first when I login.”
“I think the application will be useful if I’m out and about and I quickly need to access information on someone that I’m going to see. I also like it how it allows you to email your LinkedIn contacts easily. I actually find it easier to find a contact through the application than I do from my phone.”
Bush said he would use the LinkedIn application more than he does the Facebook application for Blackberry.
“It’s difficult to update Facebook from my Blackberry and difficult to find things,” he said.
However, Bush said he would not be using the application as much as he does the Twitter application for Blackberry. “The Twitter application is the best. I even access Twitter from by Blackberry while I’m at the office.”
Comments left on the LinkedIn blog in response to the announcement have been generally positive, but a few users have asked when the application will be available for the Blackberry Storm.
At the moment the free application is available immediately for owners of BlackBerry Tour, Curve and Bold series smartphones, and operates on devices running BlackBerry OS 4.3 or later.
“I’ve downloaded the app, spent some time on it, and think that it’s definitely a solid first addition. It’s easy to navigate, it’s easy on the eyes and it’s fairly fast — which is nice,” said a poster by the name of BlinkedIn.
