LinkedIn for Android now out of beta and available in the Android Market

After having earned user approval after a long open beta testing period, LinkedIn for Android has finally hit the Android Market and is now ready for mass consumption. If you are looking to download the app you will need a device running Android 2.1 or higher. You'll find the current release sitting at v1.0.0.

Having done some of the beta testing myself I can say overall, the application is built rather well. No doubt it'll see some updates as it gets into the hands of more users but for now, it's certainly worth a look if you're looking to maintain your account on the go If you've got a LinkedIn account and haven't grabbed it, jump on past the break for the download link.

I like the idea, but it really is nothing more than a viewer. You can't edit anything. There are no notifications or settings. It really needs more options and features for it to really be useful. As things are now, I don't really see the point in the app going into our accounts list and syncing up if we aren't going to be notified of anything new being synced. Still seems like a beta app to me. I'm not seeing anything different at all from the beta I had installed or this release.

Another example of mediocre porting. This app functions nothing like the iOS version. Was it really that difficult to make it act at least somewhat similar? The visual design alone is horrific.
