    Hi guys. This is one of my absolute favorite features that you run on this site. The apps for android tablets are starting to become truly excellent and you have helped me find a whole bunch that I otherwise would never have known about. Thank you for helping make my Xoom, and my wife's and father's GTabs awesome.

    • Chris

      Might want to try Tablified.com if you have just gotten a tablet. You'll find a bunch of apps there.

  • fabio

    Wizbar slow down the overall performances

  • Chris

    About half these apps have been out for more than 2 weeks. Doesn't that go against your requirements?

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      The 2 weeks are for apps suggested to us by developers. Otherwise, we post apps that are either released in the given period or spotted by us, even if they're older (if they're worthy). With tablet apps, the amount is so low, we are a bit more lenient with the time slice.

  • Erik I Graul

    Can't wait to start see this for Google TV!!! I got the update last week on my Sony blu-ray GTV... Theres very little to chose from at the moment that built for GTV... But hoping they start pushing some nice apps out for it!!!
