LinkedIn updates iOS and Android apps, brings push notifications

Popular “professional social media” site LinkedIn has updated their iOS and Android apps today, also boasting that over 23% their traffic is coming from mobile visits. The iOS app (iPhone and iPad) is now at version 5.08, and the Android app jumps to version 2.4.7, both now give you the option of receiving push notifications. In addition, users now have the ability to search company pages and get the latest news and open jobs.

Push notifications is something LinkedIn users have been waiting for, but another update is already in the works. LinkedIn stated on their blog that they’ll be bringing users the option of editing their profile within the app. No word on when, just that it’s “coming soon.”
