    I have heard there are still lots of apps out there that do not seem to work very well with GB. I just wanted to know what everyone's experience has been on this. I am guessing that most of the really popular apps have been ported already such as TIBU, Root Explorer and such, but has anyone run into an app that just wouldn't work?

    There are definitely a handful of apparently that don't like GB. In my experience it has been mainly weather apps and apps using geolocation. Basically the developer of each individual app needs to update their code for use with GB. Many have, some haven't gotten around to it. Wont be too long before app issues start to resolve themselves.

    You build the app for the OS, not the other way around. Of course the current apps may have issues with Gingerbread.

    My facebook app keeps refreshing/reloading itself when I first open it. After that initial refresh/reload, it works fine. Quite annoying. Does this happen to anyone else?

    i had this problem on froyo, as well. even when it's done refreshing i know it's not because i'll get email notifications that don't show up as notification on the app until much later.

    i've wiped cache, wipse data, re-installed it, gone to older releases, tried inverted and non-inverted-- i personally think the facebook for android app is horrid. i can't believe there isn't a better alternative for it, other than a bookmark to the mobile site.

    Just dl p.e. 5.0.1 and used tb to restore all my apps,and weather Widgets and so far n/plbms but I'll have to run it a few days and will update my findings to everyone. But so far so good,haven't run into any issues yet. Still a great rom though.

    Edit: Sorry guys but had to switch to miui rom, way to laggy and hopefully it will get all worked out but my droid1 loves froyo based roms apparently. Gave it a shot though but had to many withdraws may try with later releases.
