This Thread is intended for People you have installed Android "L" Preview and have not tried to do any sort of customizing to it. Also for the people who are coming from a clean wipe. With the other thread getting to ridiculous lengths already I find it easier to have a thread dedicated to just this issue. Please keep all comments on track and hopefully this doesn't get closed.

Engadget isn't working it will crash upon start up every time.

List of Apps
Google Calendar (Go to App Settings and Clear Data. Should resolve issue)
Engadget
Firefox
Wordbase
Baconreader
Twitter (Update in the PlayStore and now is reported working )
HBO Go
Signal Check (causes phone to reboot)
Facebook (Posting Comments section is messed up) [Although if you go from the Notification Menu to post a Comment then it isn't messed up]
DropBox (Not working for some)
Photoshop Touch for Phone
Hangouts MMS (Using ChompSMS off of WiFi sends and receives pictures just fine)
Netflix (streaming issues for some)
Hulu+ (streaming issues)
Plex (streaming issues) Plexpass is said to be working
Vonage
Wunderlist
Helium (causes phone to restart)
Neutron Music Player
Square
Light Flow (Light Manager Works and is a good Alternate) Contact Dev to get working version
Vine (Seems to have been updated to work with "L" preview)
Flashfox
Dolphin
Docs and Sheets (7-1-14 Google has updated and now both are confirmed working on "L")
Slack
NBA Jam
OpenVpn Connect
Skype (Issue with voice)
AIMP
MusicID
Sygic
Watch_Dogs ctOS
iHeartRadio (TuneIn Radio said to be working)
WeChat
Spotify (Has UI issues similar to Facebook)
Vinwow
Jump Remote Desktop
Call Confirm
Viber
Fifa 14
Dots
Wave Wave
Viral Pro Player
FCR Comic Reader
Office Mobile
OneNote
Astra File Manager
Nissan LEAF
Media5 fone
Solitaire+ by Branium Studios
Kindle
GTA SA
YouTube (Posting comments is messed up)
Xbox One Smart Glass (Beta Too)
Amex Bluebird
Pluralsight
NASCAR Mobile
Nationwide Mobile Banking
Real Racing 3
Divide App
Watchever
Handcent SMS
Klout App
Orbot
Watch ESPN
Empendium
Dodol Launcher
YesGo
Wakevoice
Flyne
IVONA tts
VyprVPN


Also I will not be adding ROOT apps to this list because this thread is intended for running a Stock build of Android "L" Preview and I would expect a lot of ROOT apps not to work right off the bat.

Please only post apps that do not work. If you want to see if an app works and don't see it here install it and try it for yourself

dropbox crashes instantly after sign in.

apps with semi-transparent comment pop-ups (i've notices google+ and facebook (and youtube once when clicking a weird link) don't render them properly (probably due to the new way that material works.
