Try Android L Apps on Your Device

Over the last few days, most of our news has been related to Android L. This upcoming upgrade is quite a big deal for all Android users. The Developer Preview has already been launched for Nexus 5 and 7 (2013), allowing users of those two devices to test drive the new OS a bit early. However, not everyone owns a Nexus 5 or 7.

Since most of us can’t wait for its official release, XDA Senior Member ivan123 posted a full system dump with wallpapers, fonts, ringtones, boot animation, and of course built-in applications from Android L. All files can be downloaded as a bundle or individually, so it’s up to you to decide what suits you most. Some apps are already proven to work with KitKat or Jelly Bean, while others (such as Chrome and Google Earth) still have problems and force close.

If you’re looking for some of the L goodies, head over to the original thread and give these files a shot. And if you want to learn more about Android L, check out its continuing coverage here on the XDA Portal.

XDA Recap: This Week In Android (Apr 18 – 25)

Here in the digital XDA newsroom, we spend our days pouring over an average of 2,500 news items and forum threads every 24 hours. Only the most timely and interesting bits survive the editing process, but the portal's front page still sees weekly counts in excess of 100 posts. This is a glut of content to absorb, especially if following the news cycle isn't your full-time job. However, the tech world is vast, and the information must flow. With this in mind, please...
