Please add to the list if you find more.

Do not work:
Twitter - FC's every time (update: Twitter Beta works)

Asphalt 8 - Game downloads fine, but will FC before it loads a race.
TextMe
Helium Backup
Zen Pinball
Engadget - Immediate FC
Firefox Browser - Immediate FC
Opera Browser - Immediate FC
Boat Browser - A nice blank, bright white screen. Think Flashlight app.

Dungeon Keeper - FC
Vine - Won't load. Immediate FC.

Helium Backup and Zen Pinball don't work.

----------

Dropbox isn't working for me either. But thats not a problem for me. I use Copy anyways. Way more free space.

Facebook doesn't let you load comments. Well you can, but the background doesn't appear, so the contents are all see through.

Can't send picture text on Hangout app, not sure if this is just my problem. I'm able to send regular text just can't send or receive pictures.

Wow that's a pretty extensive list. Have any of the devs stated when they might be upgraded?
Depends on if the devs download the latest SDK and then update their apps.

I imagine large vendors like Facebook will fix it pretty quickly. Small vendors may wait until the official release of L.

I continue to find more apps that don't work and keep checking to see if revs have updated their apps. Please continue to post here when/if you find issues or things get fixed. Thanks.

I read it on Reddit. It also includes heads up notifications.
I'll keep looking out for an update. Thanks for the heads up.
I'm pretty sure FB, Twitter, Gameloft etc will get their apps compliant by the end of this week.

Edit: just downloaded the beta and confirm that it works.
