    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!

    I've been having lots of problems with K-9 mail. Force closes over and over. I uninstalled it for now.

    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?:D

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

    Weird, you aren't Air Force One, but if that's truly the case, I can see that as valid.

    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.

    Google street view,which is pissing me off since I just saw a xoom commercial showing street view off and it looks cool. Downloaded it but it won't open and I don't see the option in maps for it

    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?
