I’ve become a big fan of the (free) LinkedIn iPhone app.

So much so that I’ve co-written with Allison Shields an article about how using the LinkedIn app can enhance the value of the value of your LinkedIn account. The article is called, not surprisingly, “Using the Free LinkedIn App to Increase the Value of Your LinkedIn Account” and can be found in the recent issue of the ABA’s LawPractice.News.

In the article, we give you a quick tour of the features and benefits of the LinkedIn mobile app (available for iPhones and the other major smartphones).

The money quote:

We’ve found that once you start using the app, your visits to the LinkedIn Website will decrease, but your use of the LinkedIn platform and the value of news and information you gain from LinkedIn will increase dramatically.

That quote sums it up. The app has made a dramatic change in the way I use LinkedIn on a daily basis – a very positive change.

As some of you might have heard, Allison and I have written a book called “LinkedIn in One Hour for Lawyers” that is scheduled to appear at ABA TECHSHOW at the end of March. We cover the LinkedIn app and much more in the book. However, there’s no need to wait for the book’s release to download and install the LinkedIn app.

Highly recommended.
