ART is a new VM, which is expected to become the supported one for the future L release. If you are using the L developer preview, you're using ART.

Just announced 24 July 2013 is Google Play Games. The Play Games platform was first announced at Google I/O back in May, but until now, there wasn’t a dedicated app; you could see your achievements and online leaderboards inside your apps, but there was nothing that brought that all together.

No, it is not possible to use Google Play Games without a Google+ account because much of Google Play Games is social and so it makes sense for it to integrate it with Google+.

What you can do is go to the Google Play Store >> My apps tab and see if there are any updates available manually. You can also do so by typing in the specific app and seeing if there's an Update option along side Uninstall.

No, some games as well as some apps need the Google Play Games and Google Play Services' latest version. So it may ask you to update or use to authenticate. The entire data of the game is stored in your mobile and Google server. The game maker's server didn't store any score or data. So it needs you to install Play Services not only for this but also to use ...

There are a bunch of apps to backup the .apk file of apps from your device, making the process much easier than fiddling with file explorers. I e.g. used AppMonster quite a while; its paid version even automatically captures the .apk of each app when it's installed or updated. Looks like the app is discontinued – but there are several similar apps you can ...

No. google is going to be bringing a feature soon that lets you share your apps with up to 6 peoeple. besides that the only option is the illegal option which requires root and to know where the game data is and copy it from one device to another.

Unfortunately Creating a Google Account is currently your only option, It's not hard to create a new account and it will probably be beneficial for many other applications you might download.

I could only understand... if you have a thousand dollar "high-score" bet on the table to have to spend time trying to hack leaderboards. Anyway... Your best bet IMO would be to write an Xposed module, that loops into a static method in the Google Play Games API library bundled in each game to (re)set the private String or private Integer that holds the ...

For all games: You can either change your Facebook or Google+ name based on the login for the specific game you play. Some games allow you to have a custom name(For ex. Bike Race).
