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
