Through the updates section, you can access a stream of updates from your connections, including who’s changed jobs and who’s viewed your profile — a feature that was previously hidden deep on the website. Additionally you’ll be able to view news that your connections are sharing and the latest discussions from the Groups you’re involved with.
The latter two sections are pretty self-explanatory. Not only are you able to manage your profile and connections, you’ll also be able to send and receive LinkedIn invitations and messages from your inbox.
One of the app’s standout features is the ability to sync your device’s calendar with your LinkedIn profile. For example, if you have meetings scheduled, you can add contextual information about contacts from their LinkedIn profiles. This feature is also available on the updated iPhone and Android apps.
You can download the iPhone and iPad application on Apple’s App Store right now.
