    The following apps do not function or sort of function in the developer preview of Android "L". If you need any of these apps, do not upgrade until the issue is resolved.

    Current date: 06 July 14 @ 08:00am PST
    Please add to the list if you find more.

    Do not work:
    Twitter - FC's every time (update: Twitter Beta works)
    HBO Go - Says not compatible. Can't even download
    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.
    Dolphin Browser - Immediate FC
    Photoshop Touch - Touch input isn't recognized
    Plex for Plexpass - can't load. Get unknown error code 112 during install
    Dungeon Keeper - FC
    Vine - Won't load. Immediate FC.
    Modern Combat 4 - Immediate FC
    Google Docs - unknown error install 112
    Google Sheets - unknown error install 112
    Amazon Kindle - FC
    SHO anytime - FC

    Sort of work:
    Facebook/chatsheads - Comments are see through
    Dropbox - Works for some and not others???
    UC Browser - Can download and open, but search function doesn't work. Can't add favorites.
    Tapatalk pro - works for the most part except you can't load any PM's or notification posts
    Hangout- adding contact info via Hangouts may oray not work

    Looks like it crashes for me, then relaunches. Now working fine. The screen after login was the problem.

    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'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.
