LinkedIn is an online social network for professionals to connect, network and exchange information. A mobile app for the Symbian^3 platform was recently released.
The LinkedIn application for Symbian is a Qt job that is fluid and intuitive. With apps like LinkedIn for Symbian, the power of Qt is being demonstrated.
The LinkedIn application gives users access to vieww updates to their networks, send and receive messages, search LinkedIn, and receive notifications, among others.
The user’s personal profile is displayed on a narrow horizontal strip at the bottom of the main page of the app.
The screenshot below shows the status update menu that allows the user to post status updates, with the option to select visibility, as well as the choice to post same to Twitter.
The screenshot below is the new message menu. You can send a message to any of your connections on the LinkedIn network.
LinkedIn app for Symbian works very well, and I am yet to experience one single issue with it. of course, since I have not used LinkedIn on any other smartphone platform, it is difficult to compare how it measures up with those. In my opinion, though, this one is a job well done.
So far, whether it is inviting others to connect, responding to invitations, and generally engaging the LikedIn network while away from my desk, the LinkedIn app for Symbian does a good job.
Are you on LinkedIn? Do you use a mobile app for interacting with the service? What are your thoughts?
