Am determined to use my tablet a bit more. So far have only used it for standard browsing and stuff.
Any recommends for good Android apps and games that make good use of Android tablet features like the touch screen and the movement sensors?

There are so so many...Just browse the market and read the reviews.
If you want a game....then get all 3 of the Angry Birds games....they are so much fun!!

What's your faves?
Have played Angry Birds and it's okay, what about apps?
well there are several etch a sketch emulators, which delete the sketch when you turn the tab upside down and shake it.
I'm a hopeless musician, but even so I thought the piano app was fun (xpiano)
I expect everyone knows about google Sky Map ? same kind of thing they have on ipads, shows you are starmap for where you're pointing the tablet.
there are some useful apps for photographic and electronic calculations, and the scientific calculator, but they're not really using the features you're referring to.
I have just flashed Android onto my Touchpad (dual boot with WebOS) so am looking for decent apps. Haven't tried the Photographers Ephemeris yet as it's a pay one and I'm a tightwad.

phototools and lighting studio are the two that come to mind
Get some good antivirus software Chris, something I've learned to my cost over the last year......Avast do a good free version for the Android, which sorted out my problems......

Andriod is safe as long as you are careful with 'Permissions'. Andriod is based on Linux which is a very safe platform. You need to ask yourself "Why does an app need permision to see my mobile number, location and contacts just to install a photo app?" However if you are unsure about 'permissions' then you may wish to take the advice of Ade.
I use Linux and Andriod and have not had a virus ever. This is why I shifted from Windows. BTW, nice camera on my new Andriod Sony Experia Arc S that Santa just bought me.
Saw this while browsing on 'Zite' on my ipad, us apple users are only too happy to help those using lesser platforms
Top Thirty Android Apps
Look for something called 'smart measure' once calibrated it uses the on board sensors to measure distance and height calculations depending on how far over it gets tipped.
That's the sort of app I like, something that you can't do on a PC or regular laptop.
Angry Birds is a must, there is also Pool Break Lite and Pool Break Pro, all stupidly adictive games, just not the same on PC.
If you use twitter plume is good.
Flick golf is a nice game.
If you're a canon person there is an app that lets you hook up the tablet to the USB out on the camera and give you live view. Can't remember what its call though.
Yeah I have that app it's really good, use it with phone too
This is an app that photographers might like to play with http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=SXNqT_fJ9Q0
