For example Google Keep and Tumblr. Tumblr is the odd one, as you can see it can access the camera but when you try to take a picture it complains about unsupported action. I think this might be because some apps use the default camera app and it doesn't exist in Alien Dalvik.

[UPDATE] I tried installing the default camera app from an apk (was an old leaked android 4.3 camera app) and at least Tumblr launched it when trying to access the camera. It still threw an "Couldn't acess image" error, but if someone had a more recent/official apk of the app, it might be worth a try.

Those might make use of Google Services APIs which are not available.
