This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see What Do You Primarily Use Your Tablet For?

A few days ago, a popular reddit post (heads up, NSFW language) drew attention to the fact that the Play Store looks like an absolute mess these days. And it's true - just about everyone on the team agreed with the statement. Liam (our resident designer) agreed so strongly he even went ahead and wrote a post about it, and even went a step further and by creating some renders of how he'd do things.

Learning to develop isn't always easy - and learning how to do it well is even harder. While it's true there are a plethora of resources available on the subject, sometimes they dive in too deep or skip over some of the prerequisites. Thanks to our friends over at informIT, though, we have just the book: Android Wireless Application Development Volume I: Android Essentials.

This contest is now over.

One of the great advantages of using a tablet device is its display. Having a big, bright touch display allows for enhanced media enjoyment, browsing, and gaming. Logically, a large touch display should make heavy use of touch controls, implementing at least some level of universal functionality to unify the touch-centric interface a tablet display begs for. Looking to bring this idea to fruition, Good Mood Droid created GestureControl, an app that allows rooted users to control their tablet using a variety of multitouch gestures.

If you're a politics junkie and not reading Politico, then you're doing it wrong. Politico is the go-to source for all the political news you can eat, and now it's available for Android tablets.

The app not only features the top-notch journalistic acumen that you've become accustomed to reading on Politico, but also a clean layout, intuitive interface, and easy-to-read text, thanks to user-definable size. It also support four different types of push notifications (which can also be disabled): breaking news, app tips, general alerts, and new app features; so you'll know the latest as soon as it hits the scene.

A high capacity microSD card is a good upgrade for any power user, even if at first blush you don't think the space is required. From my own experience, I never thought I needed one for extra space - I always had plenty enough storage as it was, or so I thought. But then I tried rooting a tablet and realized I needed a microSD card to do so, so sure enough, I ordered one.

If you love old-school side-scroller fighting games like Tekken, Mortal Kombat, and Street Fighter, then you've probably played one of the many The Kings of Fighters games throughout the years. The series has now made its way to Android, albeit only for a few select devices for the time being.

The Android version of TKoF brings all of the in-your-face gameplay that fans of the franchise have come to expect, including three-on-three Team Battle mode, Single Battle, and Endless Endurance mode so you can really test your skills.

It's no secret – the mobile interface for Google's Play Store could use some help. A recent comment thread on Reddit points to the fact that many users feel that the Play Store's interface is just a mess. Others suggest that its level of finesse just doesn't jive with Google's overall habits of design. While Google's recent "toolbar" overhaul resulted in a pleasing, easy-to-use interface which successfully unified navigation between all of the search giant's services, the Play Store (at least on phones and tablets) is messy, jumbled, and just feels disorganized.
