Todoist on android's ART runtime?

I need to verify if todoist is one app that can be recompiled for android's ART runtime? I have heard that todoist stops working on ART and can only run on Dalvik. Is that true? Can you confirm?

I would have loved to confirm this myself but the process of moving to ART takes a tonne of time and finding that todoist does not work after conversion won't be pleasant.

Hi Suvil,

I do not know myself, I would have to pass this along to our Android developers, but we are designed to run on normal stock Android.

If that is of no help,. I will let them know and get back to you when they have an answer.

The thing is a vast majority of android apps automatically run on ART but a few apps maybe an exception. It would be really helpful if you could explicitly confirm it from the android developers because lists on internet show that todoist has difficulty on art but again I have to take those lists with a grain of salt.

Hi Suvil,

I am using LG D802 4.4 with Cyannogenmod. I enabled ART and I had no problem with Todoist so far. All the other apps work fine too :)
