LinkedIn has become the world's favourite professional networking and job search app, and the MIcrosoft-owned service is bidding to truly consolidate its status with the introduction of a brilliant new app, dubbed LinkedIn Lite, that is specifically designed for people who live in countries where mobile data is either unreliable, inconsistent or expensive.

Incredibly, this app takes in only 1 MB of space, which is 80 per cent less than the usual LinkedIn app. With the ability to load pages in a matter of seconds even on legacy networks, LinkedIn Lite still offers all the regular functionality such as news feeds, job listings, messaging and notifications, with graphics scaled back to ensure quicker page loads.

Introduced in India, the LinkedIn Lite app is set to be offered in 60 more countries, where it will ensure that people who don't have several GB of data a month can still use LinkedIn's industry-leading networking software.
