LinkedIn launches job search app

|About: LinkedIn (LNKD)|By:, SA News Editor

LinkedIn Job Search aims to give job-hunters a better, more streamlined experience than LinkedIn's (LNKD) core mobile apps. Customizable search options and recommended listings are part of the feature set.

The company claims over 40% of its users "are currently using mobile to look at jobs on LinkedIn." 58% of LinkedIn's Q1 revenue came from its Talent Solutions business.

Job Search joins a broader trend among Internet giants to offer an array of apps optimized for specific services, both to improve the user experience and (hopefully) have more than one icon on a user's homescreen. Facebook has been especially aggressive here.

The app is only available in the U.S. iOS App Store for now. Android and international markets should be supported in time.
