LinkedIn Launches App for iPad and Android Tablets

Professionally minded social network LinkedIn has at long last launched an app dedicated to tablets. Available for iOS on the iPad and on Android devices, the tablet-optimized app is slick, featuring a Flipboard-style news feed and sleek design throughout.

LinkedIn also revealed an interesting statistic: 22% of the site's traffic comes from mobile devices. Knowing this, it becomes surprising that LinkedIn waited to long to release an iPad app. But with how polished this first version appears, it seems that they simply decided to take some time to get it right.

Tailored to "the unique ways people are using their iPads for professional use," the tablet app includes calendar syncing and profile editing capabilities. If you had the iPhone version already downloaded on your iPad, just update the app. Otherwise, download it for free in Apple's App Store.
