Easily access your contacts’ LinkedIn profile when you sync your iOS’ contacts with your LinkedIn connections.
Whenever you see “
linkedin://” URLs in your address book, you’ll know how annoying it is to not be able to do anything with it. Until now – if you have Open LinkedIn installed, clicking on those pesky LinkedIn URLs will show your contact’s LinkedIn profiles!
Just follow these three simple steps to install Open LinkedIn
- Download Open LinkedIn from this link (free!).
- Extract the app and move it to your Mac’s Applications folder.
- Launch the app – it won’t show anything, but don’t worry! This step is to let your Mac knows that you’ve just installed an app to handle the LinkedIn’s proprietary URL.
Now whenever you see a
linkedin://#profile/999999 URL in your Contacts app, just click it and your contact’s LinkedIn profile will be shown in your default web browser.
