LinkedIn iPhone App: Waste of time? Or saving grace?

So today the LinkedIn iPhone App was launched as one of the must have iPhone apps. At first I dismissed it as a waste of time – a yacht to the whale, if you will. (Too soon?)

However, one of its best features is the ability to copy LinkedIn contacts over to the contact list on your phone itself.  It’s nice and simple and the app features four different sections: the main page, connections, search, and status.

So on the other hand – maybe this is what’s going to save the online business networking tool? It seems this app might make the (clunky) online service more accessible, mobilised, and altogether more relevant to me and my LinkedIn profile and, just as importantly, my colleagues.

I’m still not sure. What do you think?
