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.
The Chrome browser is now standard on later versions of Android and it is the best mobile browser on any platform. It offers a browsing experience on tablets that rivals that on the desktop.
As good as the Chrome browser is, Google has a beta version that provides an early look at upcoming features. The Chrome beta app can be installed alongside the standard version of Chrome so there's no harm in trying it out.
I've been using the Chrome beta for quite some time and have no issues with it. One of the many cool features in the beta is the ability to add any web site to the tablet home screen.
