LinkedIn for Android is a free front-end app for the popular professional networking site. While the app certainly doesn't offer as much functionality as the full site, it does offer one-touch access to a few of LinkedIn's most frequently used tools.

The interface is clean and should look familiar to current users of the LinkedIn service. The home screen allows you to view and post status updates, access messages, manage connections and invitations, and of course, search through LinkedIn's huge network of professional users. There's also a nifty Reconnect button that lets you sift through users whom LinkedIn considers potential professional contacts.

Since the app is merely an accessory to a much more robust professional networking site, we certainly didn't expect it to include every one of LinkedIn's features. However, one thing we did find ourselves missing was the ability to edit your profile.

Overall, the app is a solid, worthwhile download for any frequent LinkedIn user.
