    Just wanted to make a thread about apps for the zoom. Its awesome how apps can run on honeycomb so maybe people could point out new tablet based apps.

    Ill get this started CNN app is awesome,grocery list is cool, pulse news feeder is nice although the Widgets aren't that great yet, accuweathee is good but only because it is the only weather tablet, and thumb keyboard is really good for the landscape mode so check them out and now lets here from you cguys and girls lets makrle this thread awesome start it up

    Hey buffalo, Beautiful widgets seems to be upgraded for tablets. Its working great on the xoom and looks amazing. Even the toggle widgets are working. Well at least the wifi one is, thats the only one ive tried.

    Buffalo madman, we got some snow today! Not a lot of apps yet for honeycomb, but when they do come out, they will be amazing. I tried to download a game for 9.99, but it took forever to download and my 15 minutes was almost up, so I had to refund it. I hate that google changed that, 15 minutes is not long enough.

    It was monster madness. The problem was the secondary file you needed after you started the game. It was downloading so slow, not sure why. My connection is usually pretty quick.

    Yeah that makes more sense, sometimes those after download things are worse than file sharing sites

    Anyone know a good rdp (or similar protocol) software? I've been looking around the market but can't decide what to go with. Free or paid it doesn't matter as long as it works :)

    PocketCloud. I tried 3 others, this seems to be the best I've found. Free version allows one target, paid is unlimited (and allows pinch zoom).

    I am interested in this as well. Right now, I am using DocsToGo and it is okay. The paid version allows you to create new docs or spreadsheets but I would like something closer to MS Office. :)

    Xoom app question

    I just ordered my Xoom and was wondering if the phone apps will work on the Xoom. Is there a checkbook type app and facebook app and games?

    I'm very new to the Xoom or tablets period.

    thx
