Hookflash for iPad is a free communications app that makes working together easy and more productive, using your professional social contacts through LinkedIn, helping you communicate in a much better way through tools like Google Calendar to sharing on YouTube.
“The value of your communications device or technology is directly proportional to how easy it makes it to communicate with the people in your network and maintain your directory of contacts. LinkedIn is the best service in the world at doing that for you, so we integrated LinkedIn as a directory instead of building our own,” Hookflash chief executive and co-founder Trent Johnsen told VentureBeat. “Hookflash leverages the social aspects of LinkedIn and enables instant voice, video, or text communications with anyone in LinkedIn directory via the iPad — which is increasingly becoming the work tool of choice.”
The app helps you place voice and video calls and send text messages to any of your LinkedIn contacts for free. Call it the Facebook+ Skype integration but for professional users. Hookflash will be available on the Apple App Store in March. You can sign up for early access here.
