Default Tablet-optimized apps

Are there any apps that are optimized (multi-panel or something other than just stretch/scale) for tablets available? Ideally, at least GMail. Would also like Touchdown, gReader, TweetDeck, FB, and Handcent.

there are not many tablet specific apps at the moment because technically the samsung galaxy tab is the only "official" one available right now. as far as i know, no other tablet currently ships with the android market pre-installed. once we start seeing honeycomb and more "google approved" tabs, i believe we will get many more apps optimized for 7-10" screens.

It's coming soon. The Honeycomb SDK beta was released so developers can start writing tablet specific apps.

If you search the market and use keyword tab or tablet, there are a few tablet "specific" apps. I know, Mediafly for tablets and Pulse are the two people always mention that look great and run great on tablets.

Did anyone get an Angry Birds update on the gTablet? Got it on my droid w/ new levels, but my tablet's market is showing it as up to date with no update.

The Dungeon Defenders app works GREAT on my G-tab. It looks fantastic, and it runs really, really smoothly. It works a whole lot better on the G-tab than on my Samsung Mesmerize.

I just downloaded it from the app market. My G-tab is rooted and running VEGAn, so the app might not be available in the online store that the G-tab comes with stock, but as long as you have full market access, you can get Dungeon Defenders. It costs $2.99, if I remember right, and it's pretty big (400mb, I believe). You actually download the framework from the app store, and then when you open the app, it downloads the rest of the files that you need to run it.

here is a nice list that was put together for the xoom:

Motorola XOOM Apps | Android Tapp. Android App Reviews

it's nice to see more devs pumping out apps made to fill a 10" screen!

Am I the only one having problems getting access to those apps? Most of them don't show up on my phone or on my G Tab.
