    Might be a good idea to start a thread with an updated list of tablet apps.

    I just noticed Flixster is now tablet supported. Works great.

    Samurai II has just been added as well. Seems that there is immediately an addition of graphic heavy games available, which is nice compared to the crap like papi-jump over the years (although I played the crap out of it)

    I also have Slacker radio and Skype on my Xoom.
    They aren't upgraded for honecomb yet but they work extremely well.

    Has anyone seen the new commercial for the Xoom. They show an online game called vendetta I think. I was wondering if anyone had heard of this game or was it just made for the commercial?? it is not the first time I ahd seen this game on the Xoom and Thought it should have come preloaded.

    Forgive a stupid question but where do you find tablet optimized applications? I don't see it on the web market.

    Looking for advice on a file manager. Should the others work on Honeycomb?

    I'm using Astro, works great.

    GoogleSky has been optimized, as well as a few others.

    I use Dropbox, and it works great.

    It shows up when you go to the market on the device. They are in a separate catetory above the other apps in the listing you are looking at.

    Thanks, I actually don't have my xoom yet. Waiting for it to be delivered. Can't wait to check out the apps!

    Hope they fix Words With Friends, loads fine but unplayable becuase the screen won't format right, your tiles are below the bezel and you can't see them.

    LogMeIn does NOT work in the XOOM, I reported it via LogMeIn and their support got right back (about 4hrs) indicating they are aware it does not work with Honeycomb, but it will shortly.

    MLB 2011 is crappy on the Xoom, it forces you into a certain orientation for one screen and another for a different screen, it makes no sense. I hate to say this, but MLB 2010 on the iPad is beautiful, they need to work along those lines.

    These apps I found to not work 100% on the Xoom
    PureCalendar (it works beautifully on the DroidX though)
    Audiblle

    Also, there seems to be no text messaging on the Xoom like our phones, which I'm sure to some degree is based on this not being a phone.. in theory (as you do get assigned a phone number for the data plan)

    Does anyone know a good IM client that works on the Xoom? Trillian crashes before it can log in, and imo has problems getting messages on time for me. Anyone tried anything else with any luck?

    Yes it does. I did not get much time to play with it but from what I used of it I was able to open a book and was not having any issues with it.

    It definitely works, just not a pretty as Google Books. Amazon said they are working on optimizing Kindle for Honeycomb tablets.

    Not sure about Kindle but Nook for Xoom works great, though the main menu screen doesn't rotate. When you're reading books, rotation works fine though so only a minor annoyance.

    I don't think the web market has a tablet section yet. So far I only see a tablet section in the market viewed from Xoom tablet. Odd thing is the results sometimes vary from Xoom to elsewhere. Swiftkey on Xoom comes up with nothing but shows up on web and cell phones market. No split thumb keyboard yet for us.
