If the LinkedIn app on BlackBerry 10 has been acting up for you recently, there's a new update now available in BlackBerry World you'll certainly want to try out. The release pushes the app into v10.1.7.80 and according to the change log it adds multiple performance enhancements as well as an in-app notification view. Personally, I've never had many issues with the app but clearly there were some kinks to work that warranted an update. The update is live in BlackBerry World right now, so everyone should be able to grab it immediately.

Although I still struggle to see the draw in using LinkedIn, millions of people everyday log on to the site. If you're among them and using your BlackBerry to access the services, you'll be pleased to know a new LinkedIn is now available for BlackBerry OS smartphones. While it's just a small jump into v2.2, it's a pretty important update especially if you like to pay attention to a lot of company pages. The ability to follow those pages has finally been added and to go along with it, there is also BBM integration which will update your BBM status with your LinkedIn updates, if you do so wish. Again, this update is only for BlackBerry OS smartphones and you'll find the link below.

Dec 24, 2012 Linkedin for BlackBerry smartphones updated - but we need more from it

LinkedIn

LinkedIn got a welcome update over the weekend to version 2.1.0.37 but unfortunately the improvements were pretty minor. The new features just include contact sync & login improvements and although this is a step in the right direction it isn't quite enough for me.

While it is great that we now have a LinkedIn application for BlackBerry smartphones it's still lagging behind in terms of functionality compared to the Android and iOS versions. What I need from the app is proper notifications. If I have the app on my BlackBerry I don't want to get and email telling me I have message - I want the app to tell me and give me a Splat.

Good news for you LinkedIn fans out there. The BlackBerry smartphone app has been updated to version 2.1 bringing some nice new features to the business persons social network.

We have only had this new and improved LinkedIn app for about six weeks so it's great to see an update so soon. I would imagine that with the deep LinkedIn integration in BlackBerry 10 we may see further improvements to the BB6/BB7 version in the future.

Oct 24, 2012 A quick hands on with the newly updated LinkedIn app for BlackBerry smartphones

We posted last night that Version 2.0 of the LinkedIn application had been released and now actually works, as opposed to the previous version which didn't seem to like any of my devices. This morning the update showed up for me so I swiftly downloaded it (for free) and it seems that they have made a pretty nice job of things. I clearly have nothing to compare it to but the user interface is friendly, crisp and smooth.

As you will see in the video - the main screen is made up of the 'LinkedIn Today' section at the top and then followed by recent updates. Clicking on the LinkedIn icon in the top left corner takes you to a nice page made up of four large tiles. These are updates, You, Inbox and Network.

Connecting with people and sharing an update works perfectly however I'm not convinced it is perfect as there are no notifications that come with the app, or if there are they do not work. Thanks to a couple of the CrackBerry team members I have sent messages through the app and received an email response but nothing from the app itself. Notifications would be great, but at least we now have an app we can use. Oh well, one step at a time.

For business professionals, LinkedIn is a valuable tool and resource for communication, much like BlackBerry smartphones. Now, BlackBerry users using a BlackBerry 6 compatible device can download the latest release and get in on the action as LinkedIn has just updated to include support for BlackBerry 6. They have also included a new profile layout for users as well, as mentioned on the site:

  • Profile Design Refresh: Viewing member profiles is the #1 activity users do today in the application. We’ve re-designed the profile completely to make it easier to see and interact with all the information on it, while also adding two new features. We’ve been asked by many users for the ability to view the connections of the people they are connected to, as well as to see who they have in common with people on the site. Those new features are now available right at the top of the profile.

In addition to the BlackBerry 6 compatability and the new profile layout, LinkedIn has also acknowledged that some users are unhappy wih how the app actually closes. Rather, how it doesn't close as it's always running in the background. While it's not in this release, the fix for it will be coming in a later release. But, at least they have now acknowledged that it is an issue and will be addressing it as soon as possible. Thanks Dave Peckens for letting me know!

Aug 23, 2010 LinkedIn v1.2 Released – Big fixes and performance enhancements

If you frequent using Linkedin on your BlackBerry you'll wanna make sure you grab the latest version available. Verson 1.2 has been released and this version addresses a lot of concerns users had with the application such as; contact management and battery life. The official words are:

We’ve just released an update focused on performance, battery life and resolving several issues our users were seeing with downloading connections. We made a number of changes to how we handle merging your address book with the BlackBerry Contacts application and other changes that should significantly reduce the battery life issues some users have reported.

Having used the application in the past, I can sure say it did suck back a lot of battery life while in use. Hopefully, this will be the end of those concerns for Linkedin BlackBerry users.
