Finding tablet-optimized apps can be a pain. The Google Play Store does have a special section for tablet apps, but a second opinion is always helpful. That's why you should install Tablified Market HD, a curated list of tablet apps that's updated regularly. Essentially a front end to Google Play, the free, ad-supported version includes product descriptions, screen shots and user comments. When you find an app you like and tap the "Install" button, and you're sent to Google Play to download it. Tablified Market lets you bookmark apps to install later too. It's well organized and easy to browse.

The optimized Android tablet apps have improved over the past year, but there's still a lot of room for improvement, and we need a lot more of them.

Maybe I recognize some icons, like Google Earth, but, really, can't we have some text on these slide shows?

re: 10 Great Android Apps For Tablets
Many of these apps are just as good on smart phones, and translate well to tablets. I would swap out my favorite weather app, WeatherBug Elite, for The Weather Channel's app, but otherwise I largely agree with many of the selections.
