Phone apps generally work with ipv6 since  they are developed using high
level and modern sdk's.

My sample says over 85% of Android Market top apps work fine on ipv6. For
folks to really get in trouble they need to be using NDK... that is where
the ipv4-only apis live, not SDK afaik ... NDK implies greater knowledge
and risk in Android.

The apps that fail are not from noobies in a garage. The failures are  from
Microsoft/Skype , Netflix , Amazon Prime streaming , Spotify and other well
heeled folks that are expected to champion technology evolution. And,
Microsoft and Netflix were certainly part of world v6 launch. They just
have more work to do.

I have more work to do.

Vzw and T-mobile USA both have ipv6.

So, please note: most Android apps work on v6. Millions of mobile phone
subscribers have ipv6 (all vzw LTE by default, all t-mobile samsung by
phone configuration). The problem apps are from top tech companies,  not
garage devs.
