[prMac.com] Cupertino, California – match2blue, an IT service provider specializing in mobile marketing, is launching a pioneering app for LinkedIn with new functionality. LinkedIn was launched in 2003 and now boasts over 200 million registered members in over 200 countries, making it one of the worlds largest social platforms and the most influential network for business relationships. The mapp2link 1.2.2 app accesses LinkedIn and uses the smartphone to build a bridge between the Internet and real life.
Mobile Networking with mapp2link – How It Works:
With mapp2link open or running silently in the background, users receive a message whenever a business contact who they are linked to on LinkedIn is nearby. This push function can be switched on or off for each contact individually as desired. The app displays all the users LinkedIn contacts and indicates which ones have the app installed on their smartphone. If they have the app, users can contact them straight away using the integrated chat function. If LinkedIn contacts do not have the app, they can be invited to install it with just one click. mapp2link helps you to get the most from trade fairs, conferences, and business trips. Never miss a business partner again, and network with business contacts in spontaneous meetings.
mapp2link is also geared to the needs of LinkedIn members when it comes to privacy and data security. The apps push messages tell the user when contacts are located in a town or district within a certain radius but does not reveal their exact location. This makes mapp2link very different from other location-based smartphone apps that allow users to pinpoint all of their contacts, and sometimes even unknown users, at any time and from any location.
The application is also more energy-efficient than other localization apps: thanks to the intelligent query logic, it uses less than one percent of the battery charge per hour, even when the app is running in the background.
