Facebook seems to have been doing some good things for Android users lately. Of course, we saw those "droidfood" signs urging Facebook employees to begin using Android a little while back.

The Samsung-made Nexus 10 is certainly a feast for the eyes, especially with that beautiful 2560x1600 display. There's just one problem: there aren't many Android developers who fine tune their apps for use on tablets. Instead of making a version of their app for Android tablets, a number of developers will just blow up their smartphone apps, which doesn't exactly make for the prettiest of experiences. Google is looking to change that, urging developers to focus on the tablet experience when it comes to their apps.
