I started using LinkedIn in it’s infancy over a decade ago, long before they had a phone application. Although a lot of things have changed since then, one of my favorite changes has been the addition of this app. It makes it so easy to stay connected and get alerts. I often feel like apps are a downgrade from the full website version, but these days, I can honestly say that I prefer to access LinkedIn on my phone. It’s everything that’s great about the website, on my phone in a more convenient and accessible format.
