Help with LinkedIn app for iPhone

Hi

I use Twitter, Telegram & RSS feeds to follow new security treats. I also have many groups and users I follow in LinkedIn.

The problem and question:
Each time I start the LinkedIn app all contributions are unsorted. As an example, I have posts that came 1h before, then 6 days ago and the last 2h ago. Why is this so? With Twitter, Telegram, RSS feeds all are sorted as they were posted. The other annoying thing is that when I click the home button it jumps to the uppermost post. Then I must go down to the last post I red. If I still remember it ... :-)

How are you following LinkedIn contributions? Do you use another app?

Thanks for helping me
Leonie

I encourage you to read through this article on the LinkedIn iPhone App.  There are a few pointers on using it and sorting.

When I use LinkedIn, I use my computer and Edge Browser.

I don’t use the LinkedIN app either. If I connect on my phone, I use Safari or Chrome and go to LinkedIN that way. But like John, I mostly go there on a computer as well.

I use LinkedIn app and there is no way to sort the post by time as the time will change when the user edited the post / article.

If it is an article, you can save it by clicking the three horizontal dots on the right side and click “Save article” to view it later.

I was thinking that if the website works better for you as it does for me, go to www.linkedin.com, and when there, save to the desktop to create a shortcut that looks like an app. Tapping on the icon will open your browser to the LinkedIn page you choose to save. Just another alternative.

Use the link I posted above

I need to check that myself. Thanks John.

Hi John,

I checked out your link, and could find nothing on sorting, and a search did not even find the word (in case I was jus being lame and missed it).

I just saw  a bunch of "don't do this on professional platform" warnings. Is this the link you meant to post?  Just curious.

That is because the app does not sort. I read between the lines and that is what I concluded

Hi John,

I have read the article of your link posted inside your first comment and found the information outdated. The article was written in year 2016. Try the LinkedIn app and you will know what I am saying.

Commented:
Thanks John. It is still good general info regardless of the date. There is some good rules of thumb in that article.
