Summary: Ice Cream Sandwich is just rolling out for Android devices, and already we are seeing apps appear that require it to run. Only one app on this list requires it, the rest will run on any tablet with Honeycomb and up.

  • I follow hundreds of RSS feeds as part of my work on ZDNet, and on the desktop I use Google Reader. I am not a fan of the Google Reader app for Android so I use Newsr. Newsr works with Google Reader to keep everything in sync, and has a good display with a multiple column format that presents a lot of information at once.

    Everything you can do with Google Reader you can do with Newsr with just a few taps.

  • I use Evernote on every device I use, both mobile and desktop. It is a great tool for doing research online, capturing information, and text editing. I use it daily for all of those functions, and I write thousands of words a day using the editor.

    Evernote keeps everything synced with my account in the cloud, always available no matter what device I use. The Android version works well on tablets with an external keyboard for serious writing.

    Evernote works well with Skitch, a simple image editor recently purchased by the company. Skitch gets an honorable mention for using with Evernote.

  • I like electronic day planners, and Pocket Informant is as good as they get. It adds good calendaring to sophisticated task management, all of which can be synced with Google and other cloud services.

    The different display modes are fully customizable to build a system that reflects exactly how you like to work.
