      Your tablet can tell you when there’s an updated app or other software. To install the update, just follow the instructions on your screen.

      Android Market applications not optimized for the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi

      Application developers were only provided with the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi software shortly before launch, and apps are being optimized for Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi  all the time. Check your market regularly -- new apps that have been certified for the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi  are being added all the time, and many other apps work fine on Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi .

      While we don't recommend or warranty third-party apps, many owners have reported success using an app called Spare Parts. In some cases -- not all -- Spare Parts can make apps designed for phones fill the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi screen. If you want to try it, download it from the Market -- it's free -- and open it. Uncheck the Compatibility Mode box and turn your Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi  off and back on again. This will make some apps fit the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi  screen.

      Google application compatibility

      Most Google Android applications have been designed to be compatible with Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi/Honeycomb,  however, some applications may perform better than others. We expect applications to be optimized for Honeycomb devices throughout the first half of 2011. Also, expect many new Honeycomb applications  to be released this year.

      If you experience issues with the application, you can rate it and post comments for the developer other users to see. Just open Market and touch Downloads. Touch the installed app, then touch a star to rate it. Once you rate it, touch Post a comment to add yours.
