At Google's event to showcase the next version of Android, the company talked up the new feature-rich tools that will enable developers to enhance their apps. Those tools include fragments, drag-and-drop and synchronization between browser, tablet and mobile phone.

One of the companies showcasing their apps at the event was GroceryIQ, a free electronic shopping list and digital coupon app. In this video, we get a peek at the power of Honeycomb's tools via the app. The company says the app is ready now - ahead of the release of the Motorola Xoom tablet, which will be the first to use the Honeycomb OS.

Apologies, in advance, for the background noise and somewhat grainy appearance of the video. As you can imagine, it was a crowded and noisy event.
