Revamped LinkedIn apps crib Facebook's mobile style

Ian Paul | April 19, 2013
Professional social network LinkedIn is makeover kick as the company looks to emphasize the social sharing aspects of its business-focused service.

Those are the big changes to the new LinkedIn app. In addition to the new features, you can also incorporate your mobile calendar as before, as well as sync contacts from your address book.

LinkedIn's new mobile revamp comes as it is getting serious about mobile products. The company recently acquired Pulse, a newsreader that presents articles in a highly visual format similar to Flipboard. LinkedIn is also getting set to incorporate ads into its mobile apps, according to a Reuters report Thursday. A LinkedIn representative was unavailable for comment at this writing.

Beyond Android and iOS, on Tuesday, LinkedIn released an incremental update to its Windows Phone app, including resizable live tiles and support for high resolution images. In late March, LinkedIn also released an improved search tool for the Web version of the social network.
