Bloomberg is adding more functionality to its mobile application by making it a little more “tablet” friendly. The financial news guru has recently launched a version of their application, Bloomberg for Tablet, that is said not to just be tailored for Honeycomb 3.x specific devices, but all tablets running 2.1 or higher. However, that being said, I attempted to download it onto my original Samsung Galaxy Tab and was unable to. The app doesn’t show up in the Android Market indicating that the device is not supported. In addition, when trying to push it to your device from the Android Market online, it also corroborates that the device is not supported. Oh well, I guess the original mobile application will have to do till the issue is resolved. If any other non 3.x tablet owners are having the same problem, feel free to leave a comment below.
As for the application itself, it still has a nice clean and polished UI just slightly more optimized for the big screen.
