AT&T Toggle – Mix Work with Play

by Jim Farmer on
tagged , , , ,

On the corporate/government scene, there’s been a pretty long standing tradition of having dedicated work phones, in addition to your own phone. Quite frankly it’s a waste and nuisance to have to carry a phone per pocket. In response to the issue, AT&T has just release what they call, simply, the AT&T Toggle. It’s an app that addresses the needs of those trying to blend business or work related stuff on the same phone with their personal games, videos, pictures and music.

When work mode is toggled on, you have your corporate email, work apps, work calendar, and more. Flipping back to personal mode you’ll find text messaging, media, games, and whatever elements you desire. Expect AT&T Toggle by the end of the year on all carriers for phones running Android Froyo 2.2 and higher.

In reality, a number of you may already have similar functionality on your device. HTC and Motorola owners, if you’re looking for the aforementioned features discussed above, read up on Scenes and Profiles respectively.

Press release after the break.

Quick Look At Today’s Free Amazon App: IM+ Pro (Video)

by Harold Williams on
tagged , , ,

Up today free from the Amazon Appstore is IM+ Pro, an all-in-one messaging app. IM+ is normally a large $10 to purchase  and will let you connect to pretty much every messaging account that’s out there. This app also supports push mode for longer battery life and the ability to receive incoming messages even if you exit IM+. I’m not normally a fan of the all-in-one messaging apps on my phone as I prefer to only keep Google Talk logged in if someone needs me. I like the simplicity of Google Talk and its fast interface. I will say that IM+ is very clean, fast, and super easy to get started adding your accounts. The one feature that seems to be missing it the ability to collapse you buddies list by category. With multiple accounts logged in, this could lead to a lot of scrolling to find the contact you need. That aside, I’m going to give this one a shot as today it’s completely free.

This app will normally cost you a large $9.99, so grab it while it’s free from the Amazon Appstore. If not using the Appstore, you can grab the download here by entering your email address or phone number in the upper right hand corner for a download link.  Be sure to have the “unknown sources” box checked off under Settings —>Applications on your Android device. Check out the video after the break and let us know what you think.
