More Ads? Seriously?

Interface is identical to LinkedIn's online experience. Microsoft had the opportunity to do something exceptional with the UX (LinkedIn definitely needs it), but instead they only added a few links on the sidebar. Oh, and they included even more ads on the bottom. Not even a marginal improvement, don't even bother.

Adequate Implementation

It feels a little too much like the web site in a frame, but there are some nice buttons on the left that make it easier to navigate than the site itself. There is a lot more the developers can do to make it feel like a rich client app instead of a window around the web page though. Keep at it!

Was glad to see a LinkedIn app, but it's buggy

OK for a quick check, but it seems every time I try to do more I find a new problem. Today's example. When I reply to a msg an error message is displayed prompting me to select a connection. The connection that sent the original email still exists in the To field. Tried deleting and adding them back, but still received the message. Jumped over to the web LinkedIn interface and no issues sending the reply following the exact same sequence.

Back to the drawing board...

I appreciate that LinkedIn is support the Windows RT platform, but yikes, this is one fugly app. It looks amateurish and works poorly. Back to the drawing board for you...

One of my Fav Win 8 apps

I love this app. Many of the Win 8 apps have less functionality than the web app alternatives. Not this one - its much better than the android phone app, too. Makes LinkedIn a real option instead of something that I hate to use.

Big Disappointment

I tried to add a link to an update that I wanted to share with my connections and the app just spun and spun and spun. Awful Cluttered UI, poor navigation and slow performance on interactions. I will access LinkedIn via IE until this app is reengineered and redesigned. Big disappointment.

A Joke

This app is just a shell to display pages from the web. Not useful at all and it can't even support a share contract to allow interactivity with other apps. Please provide something useful.

Falls short

The app blatantly disregards Win8 design principles making it a quirky hybrid. Overall the app doesn't add value beyond the old web design metaphor, which is very disappointing.
