LinkedIn Makes SlideShare Better

LinkedIn has launched an Android app for SlideShare, as well as a redesigned mobile web experience and a mobile preview feature for uploads on the desktop.

LinkedIn acquired SlideShare about two years ago, and has since added features like a tracking analytics tool and an infographic player.

Now there’s a new focus on making the product mobile-friendly.

“Combined, these products make it easier to access, view and share your presentations on-the-go, but they also help you with what SlideShare does best: discover content through people and people through content,” says LinkedIn’s Andri Kristinsson. “Most presentations are still made with desktop software, so we’ve developed a preview of what your SlideShares will look like on any mobile device, allowing you as the content creator to make sure your work is mobile-friendly.”

“We’ve completely redesigned the mobile web experience, allowing you to swipe from slide to slide within a presentation, as you can in the app,” he adds. “We’ve also made it easier for you to share SlideShares with your friends and social networks directly from your mobile device via SMS text or WhatsApp for iOS users.”

The Android app lets you follow insights on topics you choose, view presentations from friends and colleagues, save SlideShares to read later or offline, and share presentations with friends and social networks.

The company says it has “many more” mobile products and features to come.
