Popular “professional social media” site LinkedIn has updated their iOS and Android apps today, also boasting that over 23% their traffic is coming from mobile visits. The iOS app (iPhone and iPad) is now at version 5.08, and the Android app jumps to version 2.4.7, both now give you the option of receiving push notifications. In addition, users now have the ability to search company pages and get the latest news and open jobs.

Push notifications is something LinkedIn users have been waiting for, but another update is already in the works. LinkedIn stated on their blog that they’ll be bringing users the option of editing their profile within the app. No word on when, just that it’s “coming soon.”

Download the LinkedIn app for iOS here, or from Google Play here.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I find this latest update incredibly slow. The home screen takes forever to come up, as does navigation thereafter.

    I am confused. The screenshots you posted look like an android status bar but the android app doesn’t look anywhere near that good. Am I missing something?

    Linkedin… you had one job, okay? : don’t f up your mobile app… since, you know, you have hardly any people using your shitty social network and with all the free time that must afford you the least you could do would be to release updates that actually improve performance. But no, apparently that’s simply asking too much. Pff, Linkedin… gimme a break

    Linked In is huge and a great site for business.
