LinkedIn Brings Beefed Up Search to Mobile App

By Cameron Scott 

LinkedIn will bring the smarter search functionality it launched for on desktop in March to its mobile apps, the company said today.

Users can now search for job openings, company pages and groups in the mobile apps, where before they could only search for people.

LinkedIn called the addition the “top requested feature.”

Users will see tabs across the top of the app interface indicating the different categories of content on the professional social network.

LinkedIn has been aggressively working on its mobile experience. Early on, it lagged in the percentage of its users who accessed its services from mobile devices. This spring, the company launched redesigned mobile apps.
