LinkedIn Mobile app just received an overhaul.
New Design, Immediate Value
"The 3 x 3 icon dashboard can be a great tool for navigating an app; however, that's where it's utility ends. In the new app, we present relevant content up-front and instantly notify users of new invitations and messages. In other words, we remove the friction of a dashboard and provide immediate value on app launch," revealed LinkedIn.
The team also eliminated the use of unnecessary tab bars, tool bars, and other interface cruft. "We standardized a concise set of design patterns and greatly simplified the user interface (UI) in order to bring critical functionality and useful content to the forefront."
The LinkedIn said "It was important to us that we pay attention to the details. From the color value of the leather grain to the highlights on the typography, we were meticulous about the design minutiae. Visually, we wanted to introduce more richness and create a more striking, high-quality look."
