LinkedIn has announced the availability of a dedicated iPad application for its services in order to meet the growing demand for access to its site from mobile devices.
The firm revealed that some 22 per cent of all traffic comes to the site from mobile devices from its 150 million members, of which some 34 million are based in Europe.
"It's important to be where our members are and increasingly, busy professionals are on the go and using LinkedIn while out and about," said LinkedIn's European managing director Ariel Eckstein.
"The iPad application aims to help professionals to be better prepared and empowered to make smarter business decisions wherever they may be working."
The firm had previously only offered the ability to use its iPhone application on the iPad, offering a far smaller viewing experience than the iPad's screen can offer.
LinkedIn also confirmed that its iPhone and Android applications are now be available in 13 additional languages and also include a new, updated calendar feature.
Earlier this year, LinkedIn said it was considering launching an intranet service for businesses to deploy, although no subsequent information on this has yet been announced.
The application shows relevant news and information on contacts.
