    Hello all,

    We've had quite a few responses for people interested in tablet-specific apps.

    We'd love the group's support in answering some questions that will help us in the development process. Please post your replies below.

    1. Do you own an android tablet, and if so, which model and OS version are you running?

    2. What type of apps (besides games) are you most interested in -- specifically designed for the larger screen-size of a tablet?

    3. Do you have access to the Android Market on your Android tablet, and if not, would you comfortable purchasing apps directly from a developer's website (Paypal, CC, etc...) via direct download.

    Cheers!

    Michael

    1) Apad iRobot, Android 1.5 RK2808a
    2) Multimedia consumption apps
    3) Android market works

    Most tablets on the market right now can't handle multitasking or many widgets. Multimedia compatibility is also varied.

    I bought a Maylong to fool around with the OS and the form factor - just managed to squash the screen. It was 1.6
    It isn't as bad as the detractors

    I am primarily interested in it as a multiformat ereader and want to be able to run the Nook and Kindle apps as well as iReader to read my DRMd Mobipocket books.

    I have no significant interest in hacking a tablet, but I would be very comfortable purchasing apps directly from a developer website.

    Acer Iconia A500
    HaiPad M701-R
    Running Android 2.1, Rooted, FW 2.1-update 1, Kernel 2.6.29
    Bought it primarily as a toy to hack around and tinker with and learn some Android on.
    I look for utilities to make the tablet run better, multimedia apps, games, and online stuff.
    My tablet has Market on it, but I wouldn't mind purchasing direct.

    another nice app would be an all in one rooting app. Not sure if this exists but if not it would be a great idea for those people that are new to rooting

    8 inch Android 2.2 Freescale processor (Mx515)
    Primarily i need apps that allow Ereader access to NOOK, Kindle and any other application that will allow me access to libraries. I can't see why I should not be able to find some kind of access to Kindle program that is Android compliant. The Android App store that came with my generic 2.2 Apad does not seem to offer access to ereader from Kindle of Nook. Any ideas?

    I have a Huawei S7 ... Android 2.1 OS.

    A non-game interest of mine would actually require a 10" format ... and would be work related.

    I work in the construction industry as an engineer. We have to perform site visits before, during and after construction and perform punch lists. Generally that means taking along large format paper drawings, or breaking them down into many sheets of 11x17. Then of course you take pictures and have to get back to the office and figure out where everything was. Assuming nothing got dropped/lost on site or in the car.

    To be able to use a DWF program (such as Trueview on PC) to digitally mark up drawings on the fly would be cool. The "bees-knees" would be to then take pictures with the tablet and link the picture file with a location on the drawing (manual link, not GPS ... GPS would probably be too complicated at this point).

    No papers to get lost. No notes lost because they were written on the back of a different drawing. No confusion as to where *that* picture was taken ...

    <sigh> All future site visits will suck until this exists and I own it!

    I would like to see the Android tablet perform as a home energy hub. For example there are boiler now that can be operated wirelessly and also electricity sockets. It would be great for an app that integrates with your central heating so you can control the temperature of each radiator and set the times for boiler switch on/off. Also it would be great if the app could monitor your electricity usage and display in real time how much it is costing you per hour to run your household. Trends over time would also be very useful. That would mean I could go anywhere int he world and control/view my energy consumption.

    3. I do have access to Android Market on my device, though it does lack a lot of functionality that is available on the phone. I would probably not buy an app from anywhere but the Google Android Market
