    Tied ART for about a week, too many apps not working. I think it's really only there to let developers play with it. It's not ready for prime time yet. Back to Davlik for me.

    Yup, that's exactly why Google hid it in the developers option menu.

    For now its just a sneak peek at what's to come :D

    I thought I would give ART a go .. so far no apps I have used have an issue. only time will tell. I do need to do an FDR since the update, but I dread doing that, just the set-up hassle again

    I converted to ART for a couple of hours. It kept telling me that Google Play Services had stopped. I reverted.
