LinkedIn redesigned iPhone and Android app Gets A New UI & Customizable Navigation Menu

Today LinkedIn is releasing an overhauled iPhone and Android app,as well as a matching mobile website, all with a cleaner, sleeker layout that makes it much easier to navigate. The company's vintage design boasted a sequence of nonstop gray blocks that were crammed with information, but now LinkedIn is restoring those with large-scale and brilliant tiles that give more room to each of the tales in the report stream, alike to the iPad app that it issued last year. bigger photographs and text load up up every story, and each revise is separated by a simple break between the tiles. The new app also restores the preceding version's icon-based navigation list with a left-hand sliding pane, which includes personalized shortcuts and generally permits users move around the app more quickly. 

In the latest update, LinkedIn has ditched the old welcome page that had shortcuts for accessing the four different sections of the app. Like most social network mobile clients, the app now displays the ‘Updates’ section whenever it is launched. This hasn’t decreased the accessibility of other sections in any way, though.
You can switch to a different area of LinkedIn by using the sidebar. By default, this area of the app only shows the latest activity from your feed, a summary of your profile and shortcuts to the ‘Jobs’ and ‘People You May Know’ sections. To get more out of this navigation bar, though, users can pin as many shortcuts to it as they want. Hit the ‘Add shortcut’ icon and choose the item you want to access in a single tap.

For some reason, all these amazing new features haven’t come to the tablet version of the LinkedIn app. You still get the same old welcome page and can’t follow Influencers. As always, all LinkedIn clients are available for free on their respective app stores.
