    I just returned my Xoom and got an iPad2 because, after all , even if I like to try new things , at the end of the day I'm still an Apple guy... Bt anyway... I am very surprised, in a bad way about the famous millions of apps available for the iPad according to Jobs vs the ones available in the Android market... I mean, what I'm seeing here is hundreds and hundreds of iPad apps are not optimized for the tablet,in fact they are optimized for iPhone , they are very small and I am talking about simple apps like Facebook ( are u kidding me)... the full screen app for it is called friendly and starting today it decided not to work anymore....and many many othe like for examle Skype which is beautiful for android.....iphony for iPad instead, unbelievable!! I mean I returned the xoom back to the store mainly for the apps available just to discover that a lot of those apps were millions time better on the xoom???? No I can non accept this, I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, please help

    I have no problem with Facebook, I just sign in at Facebook.com like I do from any computer. Am I missing something??

    Friendly on my ipad2 acts weird sometimes for me too. In addition to the facebook app on my android phone. I assumed it was a facebook issue since both act weird.

    There are tons of ipad compatible apps. I haven't had any issue with them for the most part and they definitely don't look like iphone apps (other than the ones that were actually labeled as iphone only apps).

    I can't get friendly to load at the moment either but it used to work. Probably just a bad update that will be fixed.

    Not sure you can really blame Apple for 3rd party apps having issues. I highly doubt all Android apps work 100% of the time.

    I use Facebook.com as well. Not sure why Facebook doesn't want to make an app for te tablet but the web page works pretty well.

    When you're looking for apps, look for iPad apps. I don't even bother with the apps that are for iPhone on my iPad. I don't like the 2x zoom thing it does. But trust me. There are sooo many more apps on iPad than Xoom.

    If it's just facebook that is the problem I think there are 2 apps for iPad made by 3rd party. Some folks mentioned one and the other one I've tried is Mypad

    If you sign in through Safari than I agree with you, I was referring to the app

    In fact you are right, some of the android apps were a little unstable as well.
