    I thought we might try a sticky for apps and games that have been tested and tried on the G Tab and similar devices. I am going to create two postings, one an app list with app name and description and the other a games list with name and description. If people want items added to the list please note this in your response.

    Cheers,
    P

    Tablet / Device:
    Archos 101, Viewsonic G-Tablet, Motorola Droid X.... test drove: Augen gentouch 78, Coby Kyros 7015
    Dungeon Defenders - Fantasy game Built for tegra devices, runs beautifly on the Gtab and is now FREE in the Android market (they sell you mana to do upgrades and what not in the game now since google allowed in app billing)

    Yahoo messenger -the official version, add the add on for video chatting, works with vegan i know but your video image is upside down just turn the tablet up side down to comp, and you CAN do SMS texting from this version as well

    Astro file manager -Zip and unzip files, downloadable modules for smba and bluetooth transfers, make backups of all your apps with or without root (just apk's not data, for that use titanium backup

    File Expert -another good file manager, free, no adds, donation supported, allows similar functions to astro but key feature that sets it apart is the fttp sharing feature.. you can log into your device and manage files remotely in any web browser, with the new update to the UI this will prob become my default file manager

    Newsweek -looks great on the tablet does the split screen thing in landscape mode where you have the article lsit on one side and the open article on the other, it's not that way on my DroidX

    Autodesk Sketchbook Mobile -GREAT art/sketch app, lots of control and options, paid and non paid versions, available in Amazon app store... and i think it shows in the Android if you do the fix

    Thumb Keyboard by Beansoft -a must have keyboard for tablet.. does a beautiful split screen keyboard that puts the letters where you can get to them easily when typing thumb style, several skins and adjustment options, can even set different keyboard styles for landscape and portrait mode

    Runik -super addictive game

    Pocket God - fun silly game

    Ebay - ebay

    Google Books - reader, but nice feature of auto syncing over "cloud" between multiple devices, start reading on your tablet or pc and pick up in the right where you left off on another device

    Rom Manager - manage and download stable versions of ROMs that your device supports, not the newest versions but deff stable ones, plus offers ease of managing roms and Nandroid backups, from the same fella that created clockwork mod so it intergrates well

    Circle launcher - really neat widget that allows you to group apps, contacts, bookmarks check it out.. you wont be disappointed

    For those looking for Pocket Legends.. you can download direct from space time studios (the developer) link here... http://www.spacetimestudios.com/sho...ut-market-access.&highlight=viewsonic gtablet for those not aware of this isit's an online MMORPG (a world of warcraft type game) online play with interaction with other people/characters while questing bla bla.. if you like WOW you'll like this...
