    If it's a game, or a tool, I'm just wondering what people are using on their Acer?

    My favorite App is probably Uloops Studio, which is an awesome full-featured loop-style music studio which is free to try.

    My second favorite is TuneIn Radio, the free Radio station that lets you get any nationwide station that streams (which is most radio stations).

    I have other favorites as well, but those are the ones I've been using the most lately. In terms of games, I've just been playing Angry Birds Rio which I love to hate...

    I fell in like with Gmote 2.0.

    Nice, I was wondering what people were using as a file manager... I was using Adao which is great on Droid, but not so good on the tablet.

    I still use Estrong. Use it on my phone and it works the same on the tablet. I've never used Adao. What don't you like about it on the tablet?

    It still shows as large on the tablet screen as it does on the phone... so it's like looking at a phone-size file manager on the tablet.

    I downloaded File Manager HD just now, and wow, it's really pretty great.

    I tried that one, too. However, I couldn't find the MicroSD card. I'm sure it's there, but it just wasn't intuitive to me where to find things as the other File Explorers I've used. I may give it another try since it's still on my tablet.

    I'm using file m HD and I can't find my micro SD either. Other than that, I'm using pulse, k9 mail for my exchange for work. Facebook app keeps fc. Dolphin HD is a must for full web. Pageonce is also key. Keeps track of all my accounts and gives daily updates on my accounts.

    Found micro SD in file manager HD by pressing "up" in the upper toolbar. Now how do you transfer files?

    Just longpress on file, then click Edit

    Then click copy.

    Then go to new location. Paste is the leftmost button on top toolbar, so click it after navigating to destination.

    If you want the "WOW" factor with your A500, try the new Google Earth (find it in the Market place). It just got updated today (the April 5th) and it rocks. Try it and let me know what you think.

    Also, check out TedAir... it was just updated today, so now it works on the Acer!

    I admit its a little dorky... but its instant access to hundreds if talks from experts. From the TED conferences. Worth a look if you like watching experts speak about what they know. Boring for anyone else. For me, so glad they updated it to work on 3.0.

    So far I am happy that ADW Launcher Ex and Folder Organizer play nice on the tablet. I have the folder main menu as a widget on my home screen.

    Wow File Station is sweet -

    ** EDIT ** - actually, File Station is crashing my Acer... when I try to get to the Mount folder and add as a favorite. Back to HD I think for me, for now.

    Also, just a question about the Tomosan Reuters news app... Does it do anything "Pulse" doesn't, if you just have Reuters as a source? I like the Pulse app, but my main compliant is that it doesn't play video's inline. It does show you that there are videos to play, but then I actually have to go to the web to see them.

    Does the Reuters app play inline vid?

    Any way to tell which apps/games will work on our tabs? The HD apps seem to work the best. Most of the other are written for android phones and if they load the graphics are stretched out so much they look grainy and distorted.
