Beta Test This! LinkedIn joins Android Revolution

Out of all major social players, LinkedIn was perhaps the most popular service missing the Android boat.  As Facebook and Twitter keep putting out new updates to their already existing apps, LinkedIn was left on the outside, looking in.  The wait is over – LinkedIn has finally announced availability of their beta Android application. But don’t try to search for it on Android Market just yet- the beta version is only available from LinkedIn mobile site.

A quick walk through of the app revealed that it is no match to it’s iPhone sibling.  However, the features provided make for a great starting point:

  • View updates from your professional network
  • Search for people to discover things you have in common and establish new connections
  • Respond to invitations sent from people in your professional life
  • Keep in touch with your own connections on LinkedIn

As the team moves forward building new features into LinkedIn, third party apps like my own DroidIn allow for additional options. I liked the overall clean look and easy flow from screen to screen. The app is still somewhat basic, but that is expected from first beta. The good news so far is that I didn’t have any FCs and features provided worked as expected.  Phone->Settings->Account & sync
