Will LinkedIn Contacts replace your address book?

mzl.bjprprqs.320x480-75For years, I’ve encouraged people to use LinkedIn as their address book, thereby avoiding all the labor that comes with updating their contacts’ information. Now, LinkedIn has improved upon that idea by introducing a new app that will bring together email addresses, calendars, and address books in one location. It’s called LinkedIn Contacts.

According to this Los Angeles Times article, LinkedIn Contacts app is currently available for the iPhone and iPad, and an Android app is under development. In addition, LinkedIn is rolling out invites for a web version of Contacts.

I’ll provide a detailed look at LinkedIn Contacts once I see it in action. For now, though, have any Apple users had the chance to try Contacts? If so, share any thoughts in the comments, please.
