LinkedIn Connector problems

I've been trying to get the LinkedIn Connect to work and I haven't been able to get the app to make the connection to LinkedIn.  It takes me to the page where I have to sign in to LinkedIn and then just dumps me back on Omatic's homepage.  Anyone else having this problem?

Wendy, Did you ever have any luck? I've been trying to get this to work too. When I try to log in, it says "Error logging into Linkedin. Please check your credentials and try again." I know I am typing it correctly and when I go to LinkedIn and check the apps, the AppOmatic is there.
We just released an update to the LinkedIn app today and this issue has been resolved in that release. Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any questions.

Hi Emily, the connector was running along swimmingly well until this afternoon when I appear to be running into the problem again. I'm getting this error after attempting to put in my LinkedIn credential anew.

The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.

I also saw the add business relationship drag & drop but, was not able to get that to work.
