When I try to log on to the ubuntu one files app on my samsung galaxy tab I get the response

org.apache.http.client.httpresponseexception: UNAUTHORIZED

I'm trying to log on using my wifi, the app works on my android mobile, the tab shows under my applications page on the webpage and is listed as granted, I have uninstalled the app and reinstalled it again.

Is there something I can do to make the app work on my tab?

I had that problem too on 10.1. For some reasons I don't know it was fixed automatically when I uploaded a picture from the gallery to ubuntu one. – user25188 Sep 18 '11 at 19:06
Hey! I have the 10.1 as well. And it worked for me too! Thank you! – brorjonas Sep 21 '11 at 3:44

I did as user25188 said. And now it works without any problem.

Solution: Upload a picture from the gallery from the tab to make the app work normally.
