WorldMate has just released version 3.5 of their personal travel assistant application that adds in LinkedIn networking support. This new version uses the latest LinkedIn API to allow you to schedule meetings or share travel plans with your LinkedIn network through the BlackBerry App or the WorldMate Website.

The LinkedIn integration to WorldMate gives users:

  • A quick view of nearby LinkedIn Connections within the WorldMate itinerary
  • Mobile pop-ups displaying which LinkedIn Connections are in town upon arrival
  • The ability to scan for and connect with colleagues in the same town

All in all I think WorldMate and LinkedIn fit well together and users will appreciate the update. Check out the latest version at www.worldmate.com
