Android is getting stronger in the tablet market. With the success of Kindle Fire and Nexus 7, the sole major competitor of iOS has gained huge traction. But, Google isn’t happy with the state of app space for Android tablets. It’s not that third-party apps don’t run on Android tablets, but the experience is just not optimized for the form factor in most cases. To ensure that the users get the most optimized experience while using Android tablets, Google has called upon developers to make nicer apps for tablets. And to assist the developers, it has released a tablet app quality checklist.

Android app focus

Until the launch of Nexus 7, the Android tablet market has been fairly dormant. Apple has been ruling the mainstream tablet market whereas Amazon was the undisputed king of the mini-tablet space with its Kindle Fire lineup.

However, with the rather surprisingly sizable success of Nexus 7, it seems that Google is taking Android tablets more seriously. And now, it wants Android developers to create such apps which would look pretty on tablet displays.

Most of the third-party apps available on Google Play Store run fine on Android smartphones but haven’t been optimized for the tablets. Google is now pushing Android apps developers to tweak their apps so that they would also work great on tablets. To help the developers accomplish this, Google’s new checklist provides a number of tweaks through which they can optimize their existing apps for the displays of tablets.

For instance, the checklist suggests that developers can make use of fonts and icons with greater resolution as well as multiple application panels to make their existing phone apps run smoothly on the tablets. Even now, these apps work fairly fine on Android tablets, but given the fact that they have been originally developed for smaller displays, they don’t look great in graphical sense when running on a tablet.

Given this new push by Google to improve the Android apps section for tablets, you can hope to finally run better looking apps on your Android slates.
