Must-have Android apps, according to Donovan Colbert

Email apps

"The thing about Android OS is that there aren't a lot of business apps that are necessary. When it comes to mail, just about everything you could want is there. At least, that has been my experience.

"People with unique mail systems like Lotus or who rely heavily on calendaring and scheduling will find a variety of apps to meet their needs in the Android Market.

"In my Mail home-screen, you may notice I have Verizon Visual Voice mail, but it's $2.99 a month and not worth it. For me, there's only one additional app for communication that I require, and that is Google Voice."
