Default [Q] Using "ART" for the first time

Hi guys, i'm using CM11 on my SIII mini and i read about "ART" option and activate it my qustions is :

1 - Do i have to re install apps after activate this option "cuz u read that the apps size increase after using ART"

Personally, I don't have that much experience with ART, because of Xposed Framework, but no apps will be uninstalled when you switch. You also have to wipe dalvik-cache in recovery after every CM update, like you normally did.

When you enable ART the phone will reboot and optimize (compile i guess) all your apps, this will take a long time (10-30 minutes) so please make sure your battery is above 70% or connect the charger.
M&M please do the right thing and use 1-2 mins to fix the description
