    Not sure about a percentage, but I can tell you I have installed about 60 or so apps and they all run fine. I haven't found issues with any apps I've tried yet.

    I have about 50 apps I had a hard time finding a working flashlight but I found one. Other than that I'm good to go.

    Can't help you on cm9. I'm still running stock

    About 60 apps no problems here. Everything is being updated to run on ICS. ICS is where it's at :biggrin:

    Why in the world would you wait for CM9? Stock ICS runs great and there are about a dozen custom ROMS already available if you want to flash away. DancingNexus

    95% work. only unmaintained apps, particularly ones that run in background, like missed reminder.

    Gee, sucks to be you... I came from a OG Droid with 73 apps on it. Every one of them ran fine when I transfered them to the Galaxy Nexus the first week it came out. While I am also waiting for CM9 to rom the baby, all the apps I have work fine, and I have nooooooooooooo second thoughts about ICS!
    The longer you wait, the more you miss out on...

    yah i lost nfl mobile when cm7 went on my thunderbolt, pity, but still worth it

    busy betting on nfl right now actually

    i always go with the underdog

    which you guys reckon is a better pick

    tebow/broncos over new england at +13.5
    or texans over baltimore at +7.5


    my gut is telling me to go with the texans out of the 4 upcoming games.

    The only one I ran into a problem with was the NFL app, which has been resolved now. I'd say a good majority have been adapted by now. I wouldn't dare take a guess at a percentage though.

    I imagine there are still tons that aren't compatible, but the majority that are popular have been updated accordingly.

    I'm running Tesla LED on mine and it runs great. The widget is especially useful!

    A big app I use a lot doesn't work... HBO GO, pretty disappointed. I would watch movies and TV shows on it all the tune with my bionic...
