(try it and you will need to use back button a lot to exit :) ) And also too obvious and eye diturbing pixelerated UI designs. I hope you ...

A little heads-up: Google play returns "We're sorry, the requested URL was not found on this server."

I have been looking for the same today, and from what I see, no current apps in Google Play seem to optimised for tablets, but couple come close: Stack Remote : the way it shows selected stack QA sites list on to a single screen, you may find it convenient to browse it on a tablet screen. Stack Anywhere : the answer reading is a bit annoying (since it ...

I think you are looking for Stack Remote. There are many Android Applications for Tablets. As for a Stack Android App, Stack Remote is working perfectly on my Motorola Xoom as well as on Samsung Galaxy Note.
