LinkedIn redesigns its apps for iOS 7, adds endorsements and beginner’s guide to mobile site

LinkedIn today announced a slew of updates for those that access the professional social network from their phone or tablet. The improvements include an iOS 7 refresh and new features for the mobile site.

First and foremost, LinkedIn and Pulse have been refreshed for iOS 7 with “flatter, cleaner and more modern designs” as well as “sharp edges and soft colors.” You can download the new versions from Apple’s App Store: LinkedIn and Pulse.

Next up, LinkedIn’s mobile site now lets you endorse connections, as well as accept endorsements from your connections and add skills to your profile. New members visiting LinkedIn from a mobile device will now be greeted with a step-by-step guide that explains how to build your network, join groups, and follow channels for “professional news.”

LinkedIn promises that more mobile updates are on the way, but in the meantime you can check out all these additions in the following slideshow:

Coincidentally, BlackBerry today also updated its LinkedIn app for BlackBerry 10 (you can download the new app now directly from BlackBerry World). Here’s what’s new in version 10.1.5:

  • Improved search for People, Jobs, and Companies – Users are now able to search for a keyword and find results in the People, Jobs or Company tabs.
  • New interface for sharing articles – LinkedIn users have an improved interface that lets them easily share their favorite articles from LinkedIn to all of their connections.
  • New simpler design – New updates provides a cleaner, richer experience for users.

LinkedIn has been pushing hard to keep its mobile apps fresh. Although updates tend to take a while to arrive, their frequency has certainly increased as of late.
