The current XDA Android app isn't optimized for Android tablets or Android 4.0 for that matter. Maybe this this thread could get the ball rolling on both of those things.

There's already a thread about the xda app, so you should comment in there. It's a sticky thread in this very forum.

Also, the xda app isn't made by xda developers.

I found an apk for Tapatalk HD in the Galaxy Tab 10.1 forum, which is what I'm guessing the xda developers tablet app will be based on.

Here's the link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1409432

Thanks for the link. I downloaded it and tried it. I've only got the 7" tab, but it's running ICS at 160dpi, so it knows it's a tablet (gmail runs in tablet mode, for example). I can't see a single thing different from the current Tapatalk app. Seriously, can you see any difference at all?

Ya, I was pretty disappointed with the app as well. The only difference I see is the action bar on top, and no more menu button next to the on screen multitasking button.

i think that xda should put something on the main page asking that if developers want to they can start a collaborative project to creat one independent XDA app. Just think about how amazing a xda app would be due to the amazing developers here, and a tablet version is also due, the current version wont even run on my transformer prime.

+1, that's a great idea.
