With the developer preview of iOS 8 beta 5, and the recent release of the OS X Yosemite public beta, one of the most common questions potential testers have wondered is–will my favorite apps work with the new installed software?

It’s worth noting that with all beta software, especially early beta’s, it is always best to avoid loading on your primary devices–whether they be desktop OR mobile versions.  If you have made the decision to update to the developer preview of iOS 8 or you were one of the first 1 million users to update to the Yosemite public beta how can you find out ahead of time if your most used apps will still be compatible?  Sure you can ask your friends or scour the internet for the latest news–but this process can be both time consuming and tedious.

The folks over at RoaringApps have been making this process easy and efficient for years, by presenting crowd-sourced application compatibility and feature support for iOS & OS X.  The resulting product is a real-time, filterable application compatibility table.  Searches are organized alphabetically by default, but are easy to change and shape to your particular needs.
