With the new API rules at LinkedIn there are several apps I was using including NutshellMail which would send me periodic lists of connections my connections made that day.
 
Is anyone aware of any apps with the new LinkedIn partnerships which still do this kind of automated task?

Unfortunately no +Bruce Bixler  - and I have another casualty of the API change to report: 'Friend Check' (a really useful IOS app to keep track of new Connections and those that sever) no longer works for LinkedIn accounts. Hoping it'll be replaced with something equally or more useful, but not optimistic.....
