Could be that they coded it for 1280x800 tablets...

FYI, I am having the same problem with my Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus:

ANY Android app that have a tablet-optimized version in a single app (no 2 separate versions) will not show the tablet version when installed in my Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus.

I tested this with most popular tablet-optimized apps, such as Mint and TripAdvisor and same problem. HOWEVER, in my friend's ASUS Transformer tablet, it work just fine.

I believe this have issue with the screen resolution, since my Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus is 1024 x 600, and these apps does not recognise these resolutions and hence, just defaulted to the "phone" mode, judging by the response from Mint.

This is just a piss-poor planning on the Android OS design...

Ah, interesting. That's lame. Is there no way to force it? Perhaps with a pixel density changer?

It would be nice if I could get any version of Mint to work. It won't let me log into any of my accounts. Pageonce logs in with no problem.

Looks like the app has been updated and now has the tablet interface for 7" tablets.

I just updated the Mint app and finally it shows up properly as a "Tablet" app.

I think we are lucky that Mint was created by Intuit, a large company, so they probably notice the app is not working properly in non 10.1" tablet. I think this is more of the Android fragmentation issue and how apps are developed in Android.

I just started developing Android app and I have a hard time making sure the graphics in my app is showing up properly in different resolutions and dpi.
