Android for HTC Kovsky is near its stable state, but it still has it's limits. So, here are some games and apps that are currently compatible and usable with your HTC Kovsky. I'll also add some apps that a least start as a reference. Due to WiFi instability on NAND ROMs, I will link the app to it's APK instead of Google Play.

Key:
Green - Perfect; No Issues
Blue - Noticeable But Small Lag; Minor Issues
Red - At Least Starts; Major Issues

Launchers:
ADW.Launcher - Stock Launcher
XPERIA Home - XPERIA Home Launcher (Requires Android 2.3+ Gingerbread)
Holo Launcher - Lightweight ICS Themed Launcher
Launcher Pro - Simple but Fast Launcher
Zeam Launcher - Lightweight Launcher
Nemus Launcher - Lightweight Launcher

Web Browsers:
Opera Mini - Minimal but Fast Web Browser
UC Browser - Multi-Lingual Web Browser

Games:
Fruit Ninja Fruit Slicing Game
Cut the Rope - Physics-Based Puzzle Game
Gameboid - GameBoy Advance Emulator
SNesoid - Super Nintendo Entertainment System Emulator
Gensoid - Sega Genesis Emulator
GBCoid - GameBoy (Color) Emulator
Nesoid - NES Emulator
Gearoid - Sega GameGear Emulator
Ataroid - Atari 2600 Emulator

Tools:
ROM Manager - Firmware Utility
SetCPU - Overclocking Utility
ES File Manager - File Manager with Root Access
ES Task Manager - Task Manager
OI File Manager - File Manager
Android Assistant - Compilation of Useful Features
Titanium Backup - App Backup Manager
AdAway - Open-Source Ad Blocker

Tweaks:

Miscellaneous:

I will actively modify this post. If you're using an Android app that works with the HTC Kovsky, post it here! Hope you found something useful here.
NOTE: Most basic tools will work properly. Games such as Angry Birds will not run at all.

I didn't test it yet so I'm not really sure if it'll run or not. (Because it's a paid game.) It didn't look like it would though.

Okay, I've added Launcher Pro. It's faster than Nemus in my opinion.

Re: [COLLECTION] Compatible Games and Apps for X1 with Android
Hello and firstly thank you for your efforts. I have an X1 laying around and I was wondering what android rom you have now that is so functional to support all those games and apps. I'm thinking of tinkering again with my old device...
