I have to admit, I’d addicted to my cell phone. I depend on it for a number of business and personal things such as: making phone calls, accessing my email, writing emails, keeping track of appointments, using it as an alarm clock-and most importantly for playing “Angry Birds”. (just kidding)
I’ve had my HTC Incredible Android Based OS Phone for about a year now, and I totally heart it. There’s just so much that you can do with it and a ton of applications that can be downloaded from the Android market that can be used for business related tasks.
One of my personal favorite apps that I use on my phone to connect to the internet from my laptop PC is PDANet by June Fabrics. This neat little tool allows you to surf the Internet -via your android phone (No, I’m not kidding). Best of all, you only have to pay a one-time fee to use the program. Simply download the application to your Android phone and install it onto your pc, plug in your USB cable (one end from the phone the other to your PC) and Voila…you’re connected to the Internet. PDANet is perfect for the traveling business person-or whoever needs to have access to the internet when there is no connection available.
Since I’m such a nice person, I decided to spread the love by sharing 10 of the Best Android Apps that can be used for Business with you.
