About time
When I read this, my first reaction was to be surprised that LI didn't already have this functionality!

Re: About time
Really surprised that a company of LinkedIn's stature would release a significant app like this as iOS-only when Android's smartphone market share is over 50%.

Re: About time
Some of these features are available on the mobile version of its website and in its main mobile app, but not all. Seems handy to have a place to easily access saved jobs and check up on the status of your application.

Re: About time
Agreed. I'm amazed when anyone releases an app that only works on one or the other (specifically iOS) since there is such a split in the market. 

However, I'd imagine that most people applying for jobs will want to do it on something a little more capable than a phone, since making tweaks to a CV or penning a good, custom cover letter isn't exactly easy on even the most advanced smartphone. 


The Business of Going Digital

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
