The LinkedIn app also allows users to create their own status updates, along with the option to have the update sent through to their Twitter account.

Lastly, just as with the Nokia Social application and official Facebook application, LinkedIn provides a home screen widget, which provides an overview of one's invitations and inbox messages, along with a rather slim link to search through the social network. This widget will be of most help to those who heavily use LinkedIn.

As ever, comments are welcome. If you're a frequent LinkedIn user, what do you think of this application?
