    I just switched to ART on the N4. There are a few spots where I feel like I see a small difference, but overall I wouldn't tell anyone they had to switch. On the other hand, it's certainly not worse, so there's no harm trying it out, especially since reverting is so painless.

    I have a question. I have a couple of apps that aren't loading with ART enable (Pizza Boy, Kingdom Rush), and was wondering if those apps will have to be updated to work, or do I have to wait for an update to Android from Google?

    Almost certainly the former. If it's important to you, contact the app developers. If you can't live without them in the meantime, you'll have to revert to dalvik.

    Can someone give me a brief rundown of the difference between art and dalvik? I just switched to art on my moto x and I can definitely feel a difference switching between apps that are open. But if the app is opening from a cold state it seems to definitely take longer than with dalvik. Facebook is painfully slow for example. I tend to close apps after I'm done using them...is that dumb? Is android efficient enough to not need to do that? If so, than I'll definitely stay on art!

    android is efficeint enough to control them(2gbs is more than enough) but from my opinion I don't recommend keeping them open.
