2.0 out of 5 stars worked perfectly on the kindle fire for one day April 11, 2012
Verified Purchase
after that, photos wont load in updates or activity and you cant access your profile...just continuously says "uploading " It would get 1 star except that it works fine on my Android smartphone.

2.0 out of 5 stars not very useful April 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
app loads fine on my kindle fire. I just didnt find it very useful. I don't think you can update anything in your profile (like job experience) . Imo that is missing a huge piece of functionality. another good example of a business just needed "an app " and missed the boat on making a USEFUL app

As much as I want a LinkedIn app, I DO NOT want to give it blanket permission to raid my personal information off my phone. how dumb do we look?

1.0 out of 5 stars horrible! December 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
just downloaded the app signed in and was somehow automically sent to the "update status" page with absolutely no way of getting off the page without adding a status. Basically forced to write a stupid status so I could get out of the page. now all my contacts see that.
stupid app not User intuitive and obviously lacks sufficient beta testing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as other mobile versions April 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
For some reason I cannot resize text properly on my Kindle Fire version of LinkedIn. That's a shame because I use the app contstantly, both to connect with colleages as well as read articles and posts. The Kindle Fire does not have the high-res screen of the HD version so reading the tiny type is difficult, despite my having sharp eyesight. Hopefully this is something they can fix in future releases.
