Google Voice - Force closes

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

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

gTablet has some of the same apps not working (Tegra 2 issue), but you folks will then also have to wait for some apps to catch up with Honeycomb's dynamic storage management. This impacts data access for some apps (will not install or will FC).

nfl mobile from verizon wireless. i can't see verizon fixing it, this is the software group that has to have a different vz navigator program for each individual phone.

btw the web page andriod market is awesome, sitting at work today looking at apps, i can click install on the webpage and choose the xoom from the drop down box, when i get home all those apps will already be installed. web based market FTW!

Please OP, update the first post, or have a mod do it.

I'll bet the majority of the apps are fixed this weekend, and we don't want to do the community any injustice!

How is GV a problem? You can't make or receive calls, so what's the point? How are you missing this?

Only way I could see is if you check your VM's and/or use a voice client. Browser isn't working?

It's for SMS. At least that's what I use GV for on my tablets.

Yeah he's right, I use it for texting.

In fact the Xoom does not come with any native texting app and since Google Voice uses regular data it should work fine and not be an issue for Google to get working. I miss it bad because now I have to use Gmail to communicate when on the Xoom. My best friend does not use gtalk...although I may get him doing it if Google doesn't get Google Voice working pretty quick.

The scrabble game Words With Friends can launch however your selection of letters at the bottom of the screen are not visible. They are blocked by the score board and game options.

I didn't need to download anything, it just worked, so you might want to try deleting whatever you downloaded as that might not be honeycomb compatible ...but anyway, to find street view do this:

open google maps

press and hold someplace on the map

click that result

if the little man on the right is whited out, there is no street view for that location

if it is grey click on it for street view

at this point you can also drag pin man around to move in street view

Usually you have to drill way down, then the street guy shows up in other apps. You saying this is not the case?

Yeah but you don't get instant integrated notifications on your Xoom using the desktop version. We want an app....just like other android Tablet users are using. This has nothing to do with thinking of the Xoom as a phone and everything to do with getting texts. That would be like saying if the Xoom didn't have Gmail, to just use the desktop version. If you personally don't need or want Google Voice on the Xoom that's fine but I don't see why you care that we do want it. It's a perfectly legit complaint to want GV on the Xoom.

I have a bunch of apps that aren't allowing me to install them from the market. Xfinity app is one of them. They basically say they're not compatible with the Xoom on the web market. If I search for them on the Xoom itself it doesn't find them. ARGH!

Might as well get a netbook then since apps aren't important for you. Web pages don't provide notifications.

Try Motorola Media Link. That's how I get my iTunes music onto my Droid. I'm trying it on the Xoom as I type and it seems to recognize it. It's xferring some music from iTunes right now. So give it a shot.

EDIT: Ok, maybe I need some sleep. You just said you're on a Mac. Consider me an idiot. Sorry.

EDIT2: Yea, that went well. There was an error connecting to the Xoom. Perfect. Soooo, nevermind then. This doesn't seem to work. sigh.

Just giving you a hard time I've got it on my Nexus so I'm using that for now still. The webpage just isnt that attractive of a solution since I didn't get an alert to go there...I'm just aimlessly going there to check for messages. That's not the Android way

Speaking of apps that don't work... Wtf is wrong with the market? It doesn't show which apps I already have or let me comment/rank on the app. The only way you know you have it is to check under my apps. Is this a honeycomb thing?

It would be nice when I'm searching for apps and know which ones I already have without having to remember it. The comment/rank be nice so we can let other Xoom owners know what works and what doesn't.

Robo defense works but it won't cover the whole screen. I love that game but it's unplayable at that size on the Xoom.

It would be nice when I'm searching for apps and know which ones I already have without having to remember it. The comment/rank be nice so we can let other Xoom owners know what works and what doesn't.

Robo defense works but it won't cover the whole screen. I love that game but it's unplayable at that size on the Xoom.
Try robo defense HD beta. Looks great on the xoom!

I agree that it is frustrating that you can't comment and rank apps anymore.

Most apps don't work or look right. The Facebook app looks terrible. Album art grabber works as does Mint but they are formatted for a phone and are too small. Sky Force (as I mentioned before) Google Voice does not work but GV SMS does work. I miss many root apps like ad free android but I have to get used to it since no rooting until after the 4G upgrade. BTW anyone find out if the bootloader is locked down? Swiftkey is not found,Swype won't log in. Oh well I love it anyway!

I am having multiple force close issues. Now I tend to push my devices a little more than most and pretty much installed every application that I have purchased, but probably 50% of my apps are giving me a Force Close either during the runtime or after shutdown.

Frustrating, but probably self induced on many levels until developers can update their apps appropriately for Honeycomb.

Default Chrome to Tablet?

Any word if this is going to be coming out? Or is there a way to make chrome to phone work with the xoom?

Air control, Raging Thunder 2 and Doodle Jump work fine on the gtablet, so apparently Honeycomb related. Backbreaker does not work on the G (graphics gray- no color).

Should not take too long for popular apps to be updated, but a ton may not, since Honeycomb focus is tablets and phone apps are not.

Even Apple has separate apps for iPad. Some are universal, but many are not.

Maybe having a non-Honeycomb tablet is not so bad after-all- until the app community has a chance to catch up. More apps (mainly games) work.
