    I'm using 3g Watchdog... pulled the apk off my DX since it doesn't show in market for Xoom yet.
    It works on the Xoom, no force closes etc.

    Not getting Stupid Zombies to work. It comes up to the game designer's title screen but never makes it past that.

    If you folks can find PSX4Droid 1.6, you will be stunned how great PSX games play on with Tegra 2. Dead or Alive and Tekken 3 play smooth with sound. Jerky slow messes on my Incredible and Droid X.

    The newer versions of the app are slower, but have better sound. I prefer frame rates and "okay" sound. Still, even the V2 of PSX4Droid in the markt plays a lot faster on the Tegra 2 than other chipsets.

    Someone in another thread mentioned that Google Body is actually a HTML5 website, not an app, to be found here:

    "Extended Controls" is an essential app for me on my Evo, and it's working for me on the Xoom.

    It allows you to create customized toggle bar widgets in a small area, to conserve screen real estate. I've got it set up on Xoom to allow me to toggle syncing, wifi, airplane mode, and show battery % in a 3 tile wide row. Transparency turned up so it barely shows.

    I have the same issue. When I look in the VZW app, there is actually a phone number associated with the tablet - they apparently assign is a number as that's the only way to track it in their system. The problem is they send the text with the password to that number. There's some fine print saying they will send the password by regular mail to your address in 3-5 days, so I guess I'll just have to wait for that.

    The app and the widget will show your data usage without having to log in.

    Anyone try DrawFree yet? Doesn't look like anyone has downloaded it yet. I hesitate when there aren't many downloads of an app.

    I'm not seeing much difference, if at all, in battery life.

    When I go into the marketplace, there are only 16 tablet apps. It does not include many of the apps mentioned in this thread. Is there a way to pull up all the tablet apps in the marketplace app besides those 16 listed under the android apps for tablet screen?

    Just because many work just fine it does not mean they are "Tablet Optimized".

    There will be many that get optimized in they next few months. Some will charge extra and some will remain free.

    Yea, and to answer that more completely, the complete honeycomb sdk has only been available for less than a week, I believe. It's going to take a bit of time for the devs to work with it and fine tune their apps. I'm sure as we move forward we'll see plenty more apps show up in the tablet section of the market. Give it some time.

    If you go to the android market website from your xoom and type in tablets in the search box you find more apps on the site then you do through the market app itself
