Tablets, especially smaller models, are perfect for reading ebooks and the Kindle app is a great way to do that. It syncs up with the Kindle library in the cloud to keep the content up-to-date.
The user library is displayed in a nice carousel format for finding the desired book.
Unlike the iOS version (due to Apple's restrictions) it is possible to shop for Kindle books right in the Android app. Book purchases immediately appear in the user library.
This app originally appeared on iOS and has now evolved on Android so the current app is top-notch. Flipboard builds a news magazine based on your preferences. The tablet screen is perfect for flipping through lots of content in Flipboard.
A nice feature is the ability to add your Twitter timeline and Facebook news feed to Flipboard. Flipping through updates from friends is enjoyable on tablets of any size.
The social network from Google is worth mentioning in this collection as using the app on Android tablets is very nice. The animation effects used by the app are great and fast on most 8-inch and 10-inch tablets; it's a great experience using Google+.
This app is so good on the Note 8.0 I am using Google+ more than I have in the past.
