    What a coincidence -- while snooping around the Play store today, I just saw an app by Apple, Inc. called Move to iOS that is advertised to move everything from an Android device over to an iPhone or iPad. And, yes, it's actually made by Apple, which caused me to do a doubletake!

    Well, that would kinda be a useless tool unless you're a severe Apple zealot (and then why would you be switching to Android?). Almost everyone I know with an iPhone and/or iPad is still using almost everything Google on it with the exception of music. But I even know a few who are using Google Play Music on their iPhone. Even most of the people I know with MacBooks are using Chrome browser.

    I don't see much odd about Apple facilitating moves from Android to iOS. It's the other way that would be odd (unless this works both ways).

    I just thought it was weird seeing anything from Apple, Inc in the Play store.

    Wow, zombie thread!

    FWIW I used "Switch to iOS" when I switched back to an iPhone a month ago. It moved about 70% of my apps, most of my texts, etc so I was very pleased with it overall.

    Yeah, my antennae are tuned in to posts in zombie threads ... :vbwink:

    On topic, it seems to be much easier to switch to iOS from Android than to go in the opposite direction.
