  • With Google I/O around the corner and with it the expected launch of the Google Nexus tablet, it's a good time to have a look at good apps for Android tablets. These apps are my favorites and are usually running on my Transformer Prime, Galaxy Tab 10.1, or Galaxy Tab.

  • Having tried many Twitter apps for Android, Plume is the one that keeps getting used. It makes great use of the big tablet screen with multiple columns, and has a lot of features that make it easy to do all common Twitter tasks.

    Plume is customizable to make the display look exactly the way the user prefers. It comes with an assortment of widgets for the home screen.

    Plume- Free (ad supported), $5.59 ad-free

  • Android Apps

    I've downloaded a couple of these and they work great. I have a Freedom 10C tablet from Android World USA and its fast, great resolution and lots of I/O. It was just $299.99 for a 10 inch Android 4.0 tablet and I bought it with the USB keyboard case that helps with emailing and browsing and protects my tablet. Sure beats paying $500 for the Galaxy or an iPad...

  • selling <stop> and stping it up

    Quarton60 please stop selling - thank you.

    Now on the story...evernote yes of course and aren't the rest obvious (really do you need to be told to get gmail on android?? come to think of it, can you get android without gmail...maybe on cynomod).
    What about a good media player, or a good wifi manager (especially as a good widget) or the best DLNA client...lets step it up a notch guys.
    thanks

    • Andorid options...

      I'd agree and yes some of these are obvious, but then not everyone has used Android as long as others and may not be that familiar with these products. For instance, I literally have one client with iPad and only used the default apps that originally came with her system for over a year till I showed her what else was out there and how to download and install. You would think this stuff was obvious, but not for everyone.

      In referenced to media players and DLNA options...wow I've tried a bunch of apps and can't find anything that comes close to what I've used on webOS (like BHome Pro) for years also on my TouchPad. Shame Roger Sennert over at http://www.bluestarsoftware.de doesn't port BHome Pro to Android, but as he's said in the past...too many DLNA players on Android and no reason to try. Sorli...

    Think skype and Gmail are the only 2 of those apps I have ever used or had on my device. The rest llok like crapware with the exception of maybe Air display which may have possibilities.

  • Good Advice

    The apps listed that I know are indeed useful to me. The ones I didn't know appear useful and I'm checking them out. I'm a long time Android, iOS and custom ROM user.
