    Citrix Receiver - Force closes (Fixed on 3/4 with latest release from market)

    Worms - get error message that it an Unsupported Device and closes

    PhoneMyPC - Force Closes (Fixed on 2/25 with latest release from market)

    Astrid - Force closed when trying to update a task (Seems to be fixed with last update)

    Spare Parts - force closes when trying to get battery history

    Please add any other apps to this thread and update once they are fixed.

    Double Twist for the PC seems to work ok, even was able to do airSync.

    Facebook is iffy. It works sometimes but I've had crashes in it too.

    Words with Friends - runs ok but you can't see your tile rack so its impossible to play. The screen doesn't rotate so you have to use it in landscape mode and even then all you can see is the very top of your tiles so you can't see the letters.

    I'm hoping there will be gobs of updates to our apps to be compatible with Honeycomb.

    These need to come ASAP.

    i am sure it will happen now that we have a HC device out in the market. People who paid for these apps want to be able to use them.

    To the OP, if you don't mind I'm going to sticky this thread for now and rename it to "Unstable or broken Apps on the Xoom". I feel this is an important topic that needs the attention.

    Another vote for getting Google Voice support. I'm really missing being able te text people from the Xoom.

    Barcode Scanner by ZXing doesn't work for me, I just get a black screen...maybe the 2 camera's are confusing it. I got AT&T Code Scanner to work though occasionaly the image is overblown with brightness so it can't pick up the code, I need to point it at something black first and then back at the monitor and to make it work when that happens.

    Napster for Android isn't available in the market on the Xoom....don't know if thats because it doesn't work or if its because Verizon is trying to control my mind (and my wallet)

    1. How is Google Voice crashing if it's not even available on the market?

    2. The tablet version of CNN app FCs all the time.

    3. Wallpaper app from Swiss Codemonkeys is horribly distorted but works.

    4. AccuWeather widget says NULL. Rest of app seems to work.

    5. Key height on Smart Keyboard isn't recognized making it look all squished at the bottom of the screen.

    6. www.google.com/docs in Desktop mode is flaky and near unusable

    1. Most of us have a backup copy from our android phones we can just transfer over to the Xoom, but it does no good as it force closes anyway.

    2. I've had a couple but not too bad

    3. Yeah I've tried Zedge as well and it didn't look too good. Have not tried Flickie HD yet

    4. I've had the null issue but for some reason it started working. Try moving between portrait and landscape to get it to kick in. Can also try killing the app and re-adding your location.

    5. Cannot comment on this as I am waiting for the new version of Swiftkey for Honeycomb/Xoom

    Documents to Go isn't working completely (see update below). I use this on my Droid X and need it for the xoom.

    The spreadsheets don't open right with random blocks of repeating/duplicated cells in the wrong locations.

    I think the word files are ok although would be nice if they optimized for xoom so that the native text selection/copy/paste functions worked.

    The powerpoint isn't quite right either and isn't able to move from slide to slide.

    UPDATE(3/1/11):
    A program update was just released. All seems to work fine now.
