List Of Applications That Don’t Work On Android L ART

Here is a list with applications that don’t work on the new Android L version. Android L has been released more than a  month ago and it is available for Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 devices in the form of Developer Preview. The Developer Preview image is actually designed only for developers so they can improve and make the applications compatible with the new Android L version.

Android L has brought a lot of improvements and changes. One of the most noticeable changes is the runtime system. Previously, Android was based on Dalvik runtime while Android L runs on ART. ART is completely different than Dalvik.

Applications which are optimized only for Dalvik cannot run on Android L because of ART. Unless developers update the applications for the new Android L version, they will not work. Here is a list of most popular applications that haven’t been updated yet and do not work on Android L.
