    Any gt 10.1 users recommend any must have apps? Im fairly new to tablets as the gt10.1 is my first tablet.

    Couple of main questions:
    What is the more recommended email widgets out there?
    What is a good yahoo messenger app for this tablet, since yahoo hasnt made one for android tablets?
    Any other must have apps for the gt10.1?

    This is my list of what to get when I get my tab. It doesn't fulfill your two main questions tho.

    However gmail on the tablet should be really good, especially with the upgrade to 3.1

    Apps
    Evernote
    Google Docs
    Swiftkey/Thumb keyboard
    Astrid/To do List
    Astro File Manager
    Listen
    Touchretouch

    Games
    Age of Zombies
    Fruit Ninja
    Plants vs Zombies

    I agree with Anima's post (especially Ghosttown), here are some of my favorites:

    1. Folder Organizer - lets you create folders for apps, and is now optimized for Honeycomb.
    2. Moboplayer - video player, plays multiple file types
    3. Tunein Radio - play various radio stations from around the world
    4. Tinyshark - much like Ghosttown, play pretty much any song you want
    5. Feedly - my favorite Google Reader, along with Pulse

    Without a doubt, Splashtop remote desktop is THE MUST HAVE app! @ Only six dollars, it lets you remotely control any pc you have access to. Plus, you can view hulu and netflix!

    If you need to work with MS Office docs, the new version of OfficeSuite (I saw some cool snapshots on MobiSystems facebook page) could be a good solution for you.

    I am having a hard time getting Splashtop to work. Do you have to be wifi for it to function?

    Another good app to have is Android Assistant, which provides much information about your system and its resource usage. Helps your system with cleanup of memory usage, to give you more resources to work with.

    Is there a app to download that you can use on the Samsung 10.1 that is similar to the HTC Jetstream that allows you to capture whats on the screen and write on it with a tablet pen??

    Hi All

    I use Handcent on my Bionic but it doesn't seem to be available for the Samsung 10.1. Can anyone suggest a good text messaging app?

    Also I was surprised that the Samsung 10.1 doesn't come with Swype. Went to Swype Beta website but I keep getting the error that my tablet is not a phone... duh. There was a link on the Swype website to fix this but the link doesn't work and that forum is locked now. Any suggestions on how I can get swype on the Samsung 10.1?

    Thank You!
