Earlier this month we reported on the disappearance of the LinkedIn app for Windows 10 Mobile from the Windows Store.
Microsoft never made an official announcement regarding the disappearance of the app, but we assumed Microsoft intended Windows Phone users to use the Edge browser to access their own enterprise social network.
It seems this was not far off the mark, even when the app has recently been updated.
We have received a number of messages today, and there have also been other posts on various web forums, that the app, which can still not be found in the Windows Store, has been updated.
The new app has a whole new look, and closer scrutiny reveals the old app has been replaced with a link to the LinkedIn Mobile website, still prominently displaying a banner linking to the Google Play Store urging users on more vibrant platforms to download “a faster” mobile app.
Beggars can of course not be choosers, and we assume after paying $26.2 billion for LinkedIn Microsoft did not have any spare change left to develop a proper UWP app.
The LinkedIn app for Windows 10 Mobile can not be found (but may make a reappearance) at the link below.
