Apple released its first Android App on Wednesday — “Move to iOS,” is designed to help Android users switch to an iOS device, by helping the users transfer their contacts, photos, messages, bookmarks and other data to an iPhone or iPad.
To be honest, this app definitely proves handy when users migrate their phones. Many expected Apple Music to be the first Android App on the Play Store; however, Move to iOS app has made many raise eyebrows. Ever since the app was announced, there has been way too many negative tractions on the social media. At the moment of writing this article, there are over 12850 negative votes on this app; its drastic when compared to the positive votes – 2760.
Read some of these hilarious reviews from people. Though these reviews don’t talk about the application functionality as such, it primarily target the ethics and ecosystem. Keeping it simple, another platform for Android users who hate iPhones.
Haha What do you think I am? Mad? Why on earth would I move from Android to Fisher Price? Sorry, I mean iOS. Sheer madness I tell you! – Harvey Drysdale
I like oranges better to be honest, I’m surprised that they didn’t try to patten transferring data since it’s been 7 years and this finally exist, but they are saying it’s the best thing since sliced bread, well my phone isn’t bread so I’m gonna stay with Android – Jon Kersey
Ehm… I can’t believe I’ve installed this to just rate the app. Why did I do this to myself, nobody loves me, me neither. That’s why, life sucks, iOS too. Awww… – Roberto
Apple hit a new low Apple’s first contribution to Android and this is what they offer? Ridiculous. Google has dozens of apps in the Apple App Store, none of which attempt to move users away from Apple and into Android. This is like Walmart installing a kiosk inside Target that would replace a Target gift card with a Walmart gift card. Such practice is not acceptable. Apple has hit a new low.- Josh
“I’m turning into a sheep? I downloaded this app, all of the sudden I felt horns coming out of my head, I felt fur growing out of my body and I am bahing uncontrollably. I also have an unnecessary urge to eat grass. Bahahhhah hahahahah,” – Irinel
PLEASE DOWNLOAD AT YOUR OWN RISK! Downloaded this app, and within minutes: my house burned down, my wife left me (took the kids), lost my job, my dog died, got 3 flat tires, & I cracked the screen on my phone. You’ve been warned.- Brian
There are some reviews on the Application Design and Functionality as well –
Doesn’t even work Migrate from Android to iOS? Ha. Doesn’t even move my photos as it said. Errors out and closes without even prompting Playstore to send the error over. Think I will keep my Android and return the iPhone. – CJ
Really?? First of all, why in the whole world, would I migrate from Android to iOS?!? I don’t see any reason at all! Second of all, seriously?! An Android app looking like a iOS?? IMHO, Apple should have showed some respect and followed android material design! How does Google allow such kind of thing? Come on!!! – Lucas Diego
If Apple could move openness and customizations to iOS, then this would be a good idea. On top of that, this app itself doesn’t even work properly.- Brandon
Fundamental explanation is missing i see androbiggots instead of revewing the app decided to express their hate against apple as a company. Remember, you must review the app, not apple politics. I hate android and google, but i have other channels to express my feelings. As for app itself. Apple even didnt mention in description what ios devices are capable to do this, what ios version should i have. For example, can i move data to iphone4 with ios7? Do i need to d/l anything from appstore? What are prerequisites to use this app? – Tom
