    Try a dual boot system with Cyanogenmod 7 Android ( ). It has far more apps than WebOS. I do like WebOS better, however.

    As a top contributor to the HP Consumer Support Forums, HP provides me access to the Tochpad at no charge so I may better respond to the questions raised on the Forum.

    Install android. No seriously, just install the dang thing. All the apps you'd ever want.

    Perhaps helpful to op and other readers if you detailed the top 10 or so games of those 49?

    tons of snes games (I finished several jap rpgs I never got around to on my touchpad, like tales of phatasia and dragon quest v, all translated and fun with a bluetooth wii controller)

    all of those games and TONS more work beautifully on the touchpad, just not in webos ;-).

    unfortunately, the powers that be don't want discussion about the os that shall not be named, otherwise my "new users" guide would already have a nice fat section devoted to getting everything set up beautifully and mostly problem-free (a small amount of tweaking makes it rock-solid stable, similar to how you have to tweak webos for proper enjoyment)... Maybe I'll just do it anyway and see what happens.
    how did you get PvZ? I'd love that on my TP

    I fully agree. The biggest mistake HP made was launching the device with so very few games in the firstplace. The app selections didnt have to be huge because It was early times, but they should have had exclusive contracts in place to have developers working on solid games. I would have payed up to $15 per game If they had had a high end line up. With the way the device handles games like Asphalt I would have paid that without second thought.

    I think if we want to have decent games on tablet, the choice clearly is iOS. Talking about game iOS always have the latest update or newest release first. I love my iPad & iPod Touch 4 if we talk about game. Angry birds always have the update at day 1 when the update released. I love decent game such Shadow Gun, Back Stab, Real Racing HD, StarFront, Anomaly, Sentinel 3, Star Battalion and many many other games.

    But yes.. I love my iPad & iPod Touch4 just about game. I love my TouchPad for browsing, compile eMail, Watch movie, and chatting.

    I think have more then one tablet with different platform have some advantages.

    The clue was the line where he said those games work beautifully on the Touchpad, just not in webOS. He's using Android CM7 on his TouchPad.

    Well, thank God the PDF reader, QuickOffice, Sound drivers, Citrix and native video format support is so good then ...

    Do you like Touchpads? Do you like Android? Do you hate Android but just need an app or two? Do you just like belonging to forums? Try this: http://forums.webosnation.com/android-touchpad/

    Came here to say this. Best app on the touchpad. I have some of the best games ever made for my TP because of ScummVM. And we're talking about full on awesome adventure games with good plot lines and not just some silly mobile game that you can probably beat in a few hours time.

    Pretty sure there's at least one touchpad resolution chess game and one or more pre resolution chess games, that are single player..

    Chess HD is playable vs the computer and is quite decent (looks like a flash bundled app? think it mentions actionscript in its spiel somewhere), wtb Battle Chess Expansion/GFX pack.

    i don't have a touchpad but if i did i'd just install android and dual boot. Seems like if you want games or some special apps you'd at least have that as an option. Good things from both worlds.
    You come at the king. You best not miss.

    bojangles,

    I mentioned that because someone above me mentioned a lack of single player chess games.

    SnotBoogie,

    For sure, for sure. I spend almost all my time in webOS, but when I want to play Dungeon Defenders and I'm not near my PC .. Reboot time!

    Or he is using the web version - someone posted a link earlier, meant for Chrome, but works great on WebOS. Alot of the Chrome sites work perfectly on webos.

    There are some solid, good games on WebOS. Maybe not the latest titles, but on my Touchpad I have:
    Brothers in Arms (1 & 2), Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds HD, Angry Birds Seasons, Dead Runner, Sandstorm, How to Train Your Dragon, N.O.V.A, Assassins Creed, Dungeon Hunter, Droplets Lite, Airtraffic Lite, Avatar, Rednecks vs Aliens, Castle of Magic, Glyder 2 HD, Robotek HD (son loves that game), Big Boss (another favorite of my son), Tanked, tap-Tap rockets lite, Slice It! HD, Atlantis Sky Patrol HD free, Gun Bros., Solitaire, Tanks!, Quest, ReversiTilt GT, Chess for WebOS, Settledown (settlers of Cataan), Glow Hockey HD, Bubble Birds 2.0, Airplanes!, Face the Space Lite, Mazer, Advanced Chess, Woodenigma, Word Whirl Lite, Snake, Backgammon, Babeorella, Defensive Warefare, Bug Village, Code Breaker, Freecell, Tile Breaker Lite, Card Ace, Solitaire, Tower Wars, Aslphalt6, Paratrooper HD, Space Uncharted, Tank Rock, Sparkle Lite, Totemo HD, Card Ace Casino.

    Sure, I wish some of the others were there, but to be honest, there are more than enough.

    The weird thing is my daughter got into the SIMS on my Pre, but the same app isn't available on the Touchpad. Hmmm. I wish it were, so she'd stop stealing my phone.
    KA1
    Visor Deluxe->Visor Prism/Digital Link->Treo 650->Treo 700p->Pre->GSM Unlocked Pre 2 (wifi only)->FrankenPre + Touchpad 32 ->+ Touchpad 4G ATT + ATT Pre3 + 64 White Touchpad... bliss.

    No, I'm using android .

    CM7 alpha 2 with the newest kernel installed (no more crashes/SOD's) and assorted tweaking = rock-solid and plays plants vs zombies just fine and does pretty much everything else beautifully as well.

    I haven't given up on webOS entirely, but I can tell you that having a -proper- web browser, gaming, pdf reading, pulse reader, etc etc etc etc etc is certainly making a dent in the amount of time I spend booted up into the "stock" os. And ultimately when I want to do something webOS doesn't, it's a 30 second wait until I'm staring at android and doing -exactly- what I want to do with my touchpad.

    I view it as a huge net positive.

    I agree! I still like webOS better, but the Android experience, once you get it set up right (it took me several uninstall/installs) lets you do pretty much anything. I was new to webOS when I got my TP and it sold me on webOS. I've used Android for years, and I like it, but for me, webOS is no. 1 as an OS. I just hope they (whoever ends up with it) keep supporting and upgrading it.
