2. Add media to your profile.
Make your profile more engaging by showing off your work: LinkedIn lets you upload images, videos, presentations, and documents. To add these to your profile, click Edit Profile from the menu at the top. Under your Summary, Experience, and Education profile sections is an icon: a square with a (+) symbol. Click this button to upload a file or add a link to something you want to share. 
Once you upload an item, a picture of it will display with a prefilled title and description. To edit these fields, scroll to the media sample and click the pencil icon in the lower-right corner. Click inside the Title and Description fields to edit the text, then click Save.

Re: Mobile app?
