    Davlik vs ART

    Someone more educated than me please explain advantages vs. disadvantages of making the switch from Davlik to ART.

    I switched today becasue I'd "heard" that ART has better battery life. What I've found out is now that I switched I can no longer upload pictures to Facebook or use my Time Warner Cable app to watch live TV. Both force close when I try to use them.

    ART is where android is going, but the turnover is by no means official. Some apps aren't entirely compatible. My Facebook works fine. Try a reinstall, or clear its cache. It should work. The TW app may not be up to par yet, not too surprising. Again, maybe a reinstall or cache clearing.

    There is an ongoing discussion of art here if you haven't seen it yet :)

    I'll just mention its likely going to be an important part of the android experience in the future, but its not ready for primetime yet. I wouldn't suggest your average person use it, which is why Google buried it in developer settings ;)
