AT&T is going to release a new app that lets Android users keep two profiles on their mobile device, one that is personal, and the other for work-related resources. The profiles will be completely separate, allowing users to keep their games, videos, pictures and music apart from their corporate email, calendars and apps. According to the company’s estimates, 50 million employees in the United States could benefit from using mobile business apps.
AT&T’s ‘Toggle’ offers a simplistic way for people to switch between work and play. The app is due to become available later this year for devices running Android 2.2 or newer. The company is also planning other features aimed at helping those who use handsets for work purposes.
