Default My must have 8.9 tablet app. (Add yours below)

I highly recommend Swiftkey X Tablet version

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.touchtype.swiftkey.tablet.full&hl=e n

The thumb split keyboard really works and is easy too use you get used to it quickly and become fast. And it's just perfect for the size of our tab.

Show your fingers some love

SwiftKey has a beta going on right now that has a keyboard with a Tab key, which is nice. My rec on apps are Feedly, ADW Launcher Pro, Dropbox, and Next Issue.

Reader HD! (Love my Google reader feeds)
Tasker (great on any android)
Skype
To name a few.

Trying to find a Video Podcast app that syncs like iTunes and iOS devices do. Android still has no matching technology that I've found that can replace iTunes and iOS device syncing the play position.

If Samsung ever gets off their behinds and pushes ICS, I'm sure we'll be a lot more active!

In my opinion, there are no killer gotta have apps. The device itself is great as it ships. . But here's my list anyway:
  • AdFree Android (requires root)
  • Dolphin HD browser
  • ES File Explorer (extra features for rooted devices)
  • GPS Status & Toolbox
  • MX Player (does Flash too!)
  • No-Frills CPU Control (requires root)

The greatest improvement: root the thing and flash an Ice Cream Sandwich ROM, if you can temporarily live without camera support. It's so good you'll never turn back.

I use my Netflix constantly on it. The tablet fits right on the magazine holders of both my treadmill and elliptical trainer.

When I travel I play Yachtee, (Yahtzee knock off), Enjoy Soduko, Klondike, and all of the Angry Birds.
