10 Essential Android Apps For Work, Home

Do you use your own Android phone at work? These 10 apps go the distance between home and office.

If you find yourself updating phone settings frequently -- such as 4G or Wi-Fi -- depending on whether you're at home, work, or any other location, the Locale app can automate much of that screen tapping effort. The app changes your phone's settings automatically depending on where you are. For example, you can designate VIP callers -- the boss, say -- to supersede silent mode. It's perhaps a bit of luxury at $4.99, though the ROI case might be made by the potential embarrassment of your Lady Gaga ringtone sounding off during a staff meeting. Locale will switch ringtones when you arrive at the office.

Article format - Fail. IE9. Cuts off text. Too many ads as well.

Unfortunate choice of article format. If I can't read your article, I also cannot see, or click on your ads / sponsors. Your decision.

Llama is also a great app that works with your locale, but not just your locale. And its free. Works great. Easier even than Tasker, in my opinion.
