    Default frustration with apps. . .

    Alot of the apps I use or want come formatted for the phone resolution rather than the tablet resolution and only take up maybe 3-4 inches on the screen.

    Anybody else running into this issue?

    Is there a way to search to make sure I am getting honeycomb apps? (I know their is not many yet)

    I thought Asus shipped pandora with this tablet? I did not see pandora so I grabbed it fron the market and it is one of the apps, that is not working properly.

    Other apps that Failed:

    TV.com
    Discovery
    verizon fios


    Youtube (stock that was loaded) froze a few times when watching high quality videos.

    Any feedback is welcome!

    Look for an app called "spareparts", there's an option there in regards to compatibility mode. It works great on making apps full screen. Some apps gets all wonky, but I know it works great on TV app. Hope that helps, good luck.

    We are still in early days for apps. iPad users were at the same spot 12 months ago and look at it today.

    Not quite the same thing. As an iPad user 12 months ago I had a 2X button to tap on which doubled the size of the app. Yes it lost some resolution but it was very useable. Some of these apps are so small it's funny! I wish the Market would be smart enough to state whether or not it was made for tablets or not.

    I know and I realize this is not an ASUS problem but a Google\Android issue.

    Just a little frustration, and I know we have alot of great folks out here that might know a solution, so I always pose the questions

    The issue with 3.0 is that it is a stop-gap drop and developer know it. Google is not releasing source for it because it kind of a hack. They broke some compatibility to get it out the door. The next version ("I*") will be a lot better supported. Expect something at Google I/O (beginning of May) about the new version.

    This is not an android 3.0 issue. The same issue occurs on my Nook Color (CM7), and I have heard many complain about it on the Galaxy Tab. It seems certain apps are not coded well for multiple resolutions.
