Can I mention my own app for a second? I'm still working on it to make it use more of the extra possibilities that tablets have, but even in its current state everything works, and more importantly the nature of the applications lends itself very well to it being used on tablets.
If you like collecting objects, you like to carry your precious collection with you at all times. You never know when you might come across a new asset and need to know what you can trade or what exactly you already own.
Collectionista is an app for your Android phone, fresh off the drawing board and into the Market. Manage your collection of books, music CDs, and more! In its current beta state you can add items by scanning their barcodes or by entering details manually. You can organize them into collections you maintain yourself.
Designed as a general Android app to keep hold of any collections, Collectionista aims to fit in with the system and other apps, natively. Emphasis is on a beautiful presentation and a sound user experience. Examples are the book and CD covers that are automatically fetched off the internet, but which you can also change if you want to.
The goal is to become a manager of not only these typical media collections, but also of classic collectibles or even plain day-to-day items. Expect new ones to be added in the future.
I've got a question. I'm still waiting for my Xoom to arrive in the mail so I'm not sure of this myself. When you buy a tablet optimized app, will it also get you the smaller version of that aopp (if there is one) for your phone? Or vice-versa, I already have Angry Birds Seasons on my Droid X for example, when my tablet arrives will I automatically be able to use the tablet optimized one, or do I have to buy it again?
I wondered about this because I don't really see apps in the market or AppStore that mention it being just a tablet version.
