LinkedIn has launched a new Windows Phone app with the recognizable metro tile design, ease of use, and more functions than are available on their Android and iOS counterparts.

LinkedIn launches Windows Phone app

As seen above, LinkedIn has just unveiled their newest mobile app for the Windows Phone, which is a perfect match given that they share similar user demographic characteristics and many professionals use both the Windows Phone and LinkedIn.

Consistent with the recognizable tile design of the Windows Phone, LinkedIn’s newest mobile app is beautiful and the experience is dramatically improved over attempting to use the mobile version of the site from any mobile device. The company says “LinkedIn for Windows Phone makes it easy to get on-the-go access to your professional network and all the rich LinkedIn insights to help you be great at what you do. You can find and connect with millions of professionals worldwide, quickly access a real-time update stream with news and information from your professional connections, read timely news impacting your industry, keep up-to-date with your professional groups, search for jobs, and follow your favorite companies’ news.”

LinkedIn’s goal is to make this new app “best-in-class” in the Windows Phone marketplace and are doing so through use of the Windows Phone metro style design while “ensuring users would have easy and quick access to all the relevant professional information they’ve come to rely on from LinkedIn.”

The company hints that in some cases, the Windows Phone app offers even more functionality than their Android or iOS apps, such as company and job information via mobile.

“At LinkedIn, we believe in helping professionals everywhere to be great at what they do. With the release of Windows Phone, we are now making it possible for even more professionals to gather the important insights they need to make smarter business decisions right from their Windows Phone device.”

It will be interesting to watch not only the adoption rate of LinkedIn’s Windows Phone app, but how its velocity of adoption compares to Android and iOS – it is conceivable that it could be one of their fastest adopted app so far.
