Honeycomb (Or Later) Apps List


  1. Bunjiweb

    Bunjiweb Well-Known Member

    There doesn't appear to yet be a list of apps that are optimised for Honeycomb, so here is all that are currently available. List was partially ripped from another source, but I have added a bunch more and tidied it up. I will try to add any new ones, but please let me know of any you come across.

    I have found Honeycomb optimised apps by searching for the following phrases:

    Honeycomb / 3.0 / Tegra / THD / Tablet / HD

    Thanks to all other contributors :)

    Well I think there are a number of folks like me that are waiting for their tablet to be delivered. But thanks for posting, I am putting together a list of the apps that I plan to test drive.

    Thanks a bunch for this list! I find it very annoying that Google has yet to create a separate app store for tablets only.

    This should be stickied.

    Major thanks for this. Getting ready to buy a Xoom, and was just wondering if there was a list of tab only/optimized apps. Agree also, this needs stickied.

    Springpad and Catch: Note keeping apps in the vein of Evernote.

    Plex: Streams video from desktop to Tablet, transcoding in the vasy majority of cases, which sucks, but it does work well.

    Tablet Wallpapers: 10.1 inch free wallpaper app.

    Edit: Oh and Feedly, a google reader app.

    Not sure if they are tablet optimized but these run well on my tablet.

    Paradise Island- Games
    Buka HD- Games
    Tv Show Stream- Entertainment
    Qbism HD- Games

    Party foul on my part. VTL launcher does not work. Sorry.

    Grave Defense HD works really well on my Asus Transformer.

    Feedly is also quite neat (though landscape didn't work).

    Don't most apps work on Honeycomb?

    Here are some I have which make use of the larger screen on my Xoom:
    Android System Info (tool), Astro (file manager), Catlog (tool), Earth, JetCarStunts, London (Tube map), Simple Spreadsheet, Thinking Space (mindmap), WeatherPro.

    And my kids:
    Angry birds (various versions), Art of Glow (makes nice patterns), Kids Shape Puzzle HD (and related games), Paintjoy Pro, Springle (makes nice patterns), The New Baby (children's story).

    My own app, Clesh (for Cloud video editing) has various Honeycomb optimisations beyond using the larger screens (mostly aimed at the Xoom): it uses both CPUs at the same time, and it has different versions optimised for NEON and non NEON CPUs (ie Tegra in the Xoom and Atrix).

    NVIDEA leaving out NEON in this version of the Tegra was a mistake, IMHO, but with dual A9 chips like the Samsung Galaxy S2 starting to include it, I think it's still worth developing for it. With any luck, in a couple of years, all devices will include it.

    Obviously many apps work on Honeycomb, but are not optimised, may force you to use portrait view, stretch buttons and other elements in a peculiar fashion or just don't look right. Others however look right at home on Honeycomb without any specific adaptations, and it's those that should be included on this list along side those that are officially fashioned for Honeycomb.

    Tweetcaster HD is a great visual improvement over the standard Tweetcaster and will be added to the list shortly.

    Will add others soon.

    Bunjiweb,

    Feedly is a newsreader, and its very very good.
    Found another reader too, Newsr

    Both of the above, are in my opinion, better than Pulse.

    Flight Control looks brilliant on my TF101.

    Bang Bang Racing THD is a great top-down racer, multiple control methods too.

    Looks like a good idea but I agree with the comments made that u need more than one widget available.

    Found a new Facebook client called Friend Me last night.

    Quite impressed, though it does lack some key features. Its optimized for Honeycomb.

    Miles better than Friendcaster or the official (shocking) app.

    Pete :D

    Its not bad, think it still needs a lot of work but at least the interface is designed specifically for honeycomb!

    My Xoom has just imploded (ie black screen and no response). This is a pity, as I use(d) it a lot. Is there an easy fix for this?

    While I find time to take it in to be fixed, do people have any other recommendations for similarly good Honeycomb 1280x800+ 10" tablets? [I'm lucky enough to get to buy lots of different devices to "test" my software :), but there don't seem to be many similar Honeycomb devices in the UK]
