If you’re in any kind of business, you’re probably a LinkedIn user. Considered to be the Facebook of professional social networks, LinkedIn has more than 150 million members worldwide, and their iOS app got a substantial update on Thursday bringing native iPad support and more.
LinkedIn has released version 5.0 of the professional social network’s iOS app, and if you own an iPad, it’s likely one that you’ve been waiting for.
“Get on-the-go access to your professional network with LinkedIn for iPhone & iPad,” the app description reads. “Find and connect with more than 150M members worldwide, read the latest industry news, keep up-to-date with your groups, and share content with your network from anywhere.”
That’s right: The LinkedIn app is now universal, adding native support for the iPad, including optimized Retina Display graphics specifically for the new iPad. Many of those who frequently use the app have been frustrated by it being limited strictly to the iPhone and iPod touch, but that limitation has now been lifted.
LinkedIn 5.0 also adds a couple of other features, most notably a new calendar feature for connecting the people you’re meeting with to their LinkedIn profile so you can brush up on them ahead of time.
The free LinkedIn 5.0 update is now available from the App Store; the 15.6MB download works with any device running iOS 4.0 or later.
