I am a little surprised at how slow many "main stream" apps have been in updating to work well with the Xoom. I have search multiple times for tablet only versions of my apps in cases they are not just updating my regular apps. For the most part - nothing.

Some examples that I have that "work" - but are clearly not optimized, or just plain suck are:
- SI Magazine
- Score Center
- CBS Sports
- AP News
- NPR News

These are all main players in the market and I am surprised they have not jumped on board yet.

I know I can browse to their main web sites via the browser, and some of these I do. But I love the app experience because I can one click into the proper news source rather than 5 click to it through favorites.

I am really bummed there is a lack of good sports apps for the tablet. Free anyway.
