LinkedIn's New Mobile App

A Quick Tour Video: I wanted to give you a quick tour of LinkedIn's new mobile app . It is FINALLY available for both the iPhone and for the Android . (This demo is on the iPhone.)

Once it is downloaded and opened it, the app is going to ask you if you want to sign in as yourself (if you already have a LinkedIn mobile app.) If you don't, then you'll probably just have to sign into LinkedIn. Either way, you only have to do it once, and then the LinkedIn Groups app will take you to the home screen where you can see what's happening. The Highlights page is pretty much... Read More
