    Wow, fantastic! Two pieces of initial feedback:

    No portrait orientation - that seems like it defeats the point of having a tablet if I can't use it in the orientation I want.

    When prompted for my login credentials, the keyboard overlays the window so I can't see what I've typed. Took three times before I got it right.

    The good?

    It's gorgeous. And lots of information. VERY good information on properties.

    Thanks for stepping into the iPad world!

    The android app looks exactly the same to me. Not sure what has changed.

    Considering this announcement was specifically about the iOS apps (and the addition of an iPad app!), I'm not sure why you'd think anything changed in the Android app. I'd say it's a good sign that a tablet-capable app on Android might be forthcoming, though.
