LinkedIn is a vital tool for millions of professionals across the globe, offering easy ways to connect with old and new business contacts, keep up to date with trends in your industry, research and prepare for meetings and expand your professional network.
The LinkedIn App brings the most popular features of LinkedIn to a custom built app for Asha touch devices with four main features:
- Update Stream: Keep up to date with your network and access information about your industry. You can like, comment and share updates to stay in the loop with what’s going on.
- Inbox: Accept connection requests and communicate with your contacts.
- Search: Search through the global network of over 225 million LinkedIn members. There’s also a People You May Know feature, which suggests professionals you may know and want to connect with, based on your current contacts.

LinkedIn believes the app is a great way to reach new and existing members in emerging markets, by offering a feature-rich experience on devices that are readily available and affordable in many markets. The app is available free of charge for download from the Nokia Store.
