Linked In, a popular business and professional social networking website, has announced its application for smartphones based on Nokia’s Symbian platform.
The application is a compact version of the Linked In online account, which allows users to send and receive messages from their connections, add new ones, respond to invitations, browse profiles, view and compose status updates.
The application also has a “Call Out” button on the top right hand side of the screen, which might confuse some users as there is no description available for that. But, that key allows the users to update their status messages which are automatically syndicated with their Twitter account, if that is linked to the Linked In account.
As of now the application only has one version and is available only for Symbian S60 ^3 devices. The application is optimised for touchscreen S60 based phones only but we can expect Nokia to release other versions of this application for its s40 phones as well soon.
Users can download the application free of cost directly from their smartphones by visiting the OVI store or can follow the online store link to send the download link to their device.
