the app was definitely in need of an update. One should check out the new Yahoo! Weather app; very clean, sleek, and simple...

What a crap video! What did it show except the girl can't converse with normal people except via her phone! She must have walked past two murders, a robbery and grand theft auto. But she did hear about it on her news feed.

The calendar uploader of LinkedIn has been updated, that's great. It's 100% faster than before and you see a nice progress bar while they steal your data.

Because of LinkedIn itself or because you wrote or did someting you shouldn't have done on LinkedIn?

This is a huge improvement. The old app was so terrible.

Nice to have the video. I try to keep up with LinkedIn, but haven't really sorted out the real value. Then this update came, and whatever grasp I had went out the window. I'm glad to get even this brief walkthrough, since I don't always head straight to the website when an iOS app gets updated.
