Users can be updated on the latest news and stories circulating around their career or business horizon. It enables job searches as well as real-time connections within the concerned industry. Those harboring interests in a specific company can follow it to stay abreast of the latest developments on the same.
“At LinkedIn, we believe in helping professionals everywhere to be great at what they do. With the release of Windows Phone, we are now making it possible for even more professionals to gather the important insights they need to make smarter business decisions right from their Windows Phone device,” states a post on the official Linkedln blog.
This free app takes advantage of many features specific to Windows Phone handsets like Live Tiles. It’s possible to collaborate virtually with groups by listing them using secondary Live Tiles. To make the experience smooth, the app follows the Metro style interface that should provide access to the relevant information quite comfortably.
In terms of the Android and iOS counterparts, the company believes that this newest application offers more functionality on a relative basis. The LinkedIn for Windows Phone app can be downloaded via the Marketplace.
