    I really thought that apps would be flowing a little bit faster than they are. I mean, I purchased a Palm Pre when they first came out and Apps for WebOS were dropping faster. Guess I'm just impatient.
    This is about what we saw with the iPad too. A lot of apps that already work but few that are optimized for the larger device. It took months for that to be less true for iOS. Hopefully it will be less than that for honeycomb devices. As more devices come online with honeycomb I suspect the development for it will escalate dramatically.

    The sdk wasn't released until a couple days before the xoom, if it had been released a month ago then we would be seeing more apps

    Hmmm... As a long-time Pre user, I really don't remember apps for webOS dropping all that quickly on June 6, 2009 or soon thereafter. In fact, other than the 30 or so the phone shipped with (by devs who'd been given early access to the SDK), we didn't see any new apps for quite some time because the SDK wasn't available.

    Google just released the final 3.0 SDK, and so it'll be a few weeks, I'm sure, before most apps have been updated for it. Until then, I find it a little hard to put up webOS as an example of a platform that had quicker/broader app development.

    Quickoffice is working on a tablet-optimized version that looks pretty cool. Video preview below:

    Apps for webOS had to be built from the ground up, apps only need to be optimized for the xoom so I don't think it will take nearly as long

    List updated.

    I've noticed that with Weatherbug, the market link appears the night before it's actually working so I fully expect Google Body to be available tomorrow.

    i like how weatherbug looks to tap into the barometer that the device has. Still don't know why they added that though.

    This thread is awesome. Keep up all the great work! Let's hope with Google giving away all that cool swag for the GDC, more great apps are being made.

    Love the thread.

    Please add New York Times for Tablets. I'm a big NYTimes reader and when I eventually get my Nook Color, I'm just coming to this thread and downloading all the necessary apps for it.

    Despite its name, it's not very well optimized for tablets this large and definitely not optimized for Honeycomb (last update to the app was in November).

    I tested our app LifeShow Player (photo viewer for Picasa, facebook ...) was tested on Xoom and LG Optimus Tab at the MWC, worked fine.
