BUSINESS SOCIAL NETWORKING web site Linkedin has finally released an Ipad app, two years after arriving on the Iphone.
Linkedin has revealed that 22 per cent of its traffic comes to the web site from mobile devices, no doubt spurring the decision to release an Ipad optimised app. Previously users of the career tracking network have had to make do with a scaled-up version of its Iphone app, which doesn't look great on the large screened device.
"It's important to be where our members are and increasingly, busy professionals are on the go and using LinkedIn while out and about," said LinkedIn's European managing director Ariel Eckstein. "The Ipad application aims to help professionals to be better prepared and empowered to make smarter business decisions wherever they may be working."
Improving on its Iphone counterpart, the Ipad app takes advantage of the Apple tablet's 9.7in 'retina' display, which means that no individual pixels should be visible to the human eye.
Linkedin has also announced that its Iphone and Android apps are now available in 13 additional languages and include an updated calendar feature. µ
