Apple Haters Pounce on ‘Move to iOS’ App

Browse This Page

We love controversies. And there is no one more likely to stir up mixed reactions that take over the internet quite as much as Apple. In a move that was sure to create a buzz just from its title, Apple released an Android app (yes, we said Android) called ‘Move to iOS’ which allows Android users who are looking to switch to Apple to do so in an easy fashion.

The app allows a smooth, easy way to transfer all your data such as contacts, photos, messages and bookmarks from your old Android device to your new iPhone. Apple promises a simple process to transfer your Android data. However, the app will only work if you’re setting up your iPhone or iPad as a new device.

Move to iOS

Now for a quick tour on how the app works. When you begin setting up your iPhone or iPad, you will select a language, cellular or wireless network, then choose the apps and data you want to transfer. You will then select the Move Data from Android option in the transfer content screen. Then open the ‘Move to iOS’ app on your Android device. You’ll be prompted to enter a nine-digit code on both devices after which the transfer will begin.

While this app is truly helpful for those who want to switch over to the iPhone and would deserve anywhere between 4-5 stars, it, however, has received a hilarious 1.7 out of 5 rating on the Google Play Store. The low rating is credited to Android users who have shown their scorn at the app by giving it the lowest rating possible and by posting hateful reviews. Just for fun, here are some of them.

Move to iOS Reviews

While Android users have voiced their opinions (which have less to do with the app itself), you can download this app here if you are planning to switch from Android to iOS. It is a solid app that allows smooth transfer of data, no matter what haters say.

  • Nishant Sethi

    They are not Apple haters, they are Android lovers.

  • Sachin Balan

    Well Apple has changed a lot and it has also learned some tips & tricks from Android too. So few move over to iOS is obvious. I too like the way iOS has EVOLVED this year, but still buying a iPhone is Very Heavy for my pocket.

  • Pavan Kumar

    It’s more about the experience with apple products.You can’t convince people who use iOS to switch to android because they do a few things with their phones and they want them to be done well.I know all about the customisation of android but it’s just that smooth sailing of iOS that makes people stick with it

  • Dipanjan Nickname

    You just stole my words….
    No customization or themes ! Enough said

  • Bikram Singh

    No matter how ahead it is.. It won’t let download anything. Even videos in whatsapp are paused downloading when pushed to background.

  • Tapan Bhanot

    Try it now. Its way ahead.

  • Tapan Bhanot

    Ya they sell because they don’t have silly invite or registration system. Just go to a shop or site and buy. Even buying process is simpler. Android and stupid Chinese brands sucks.

  • Anant Mishra

    Haters gon’ hate. Apple will still sell phones like crazy anyway. ;)
    So, hate all you want. That won’t stop winners from winning.

    Why we want tojump into lake when we are in the ocean

  • Amit Shewani

    To be honest we can’t remove our frustration on an application. If someone hates apple that’s ok because that’s their point of view but giving 1 star to that application makes no sense. Rating an application should be based on its functionality and to suggest the developer to fix some bugs and not act like a typical fanboy and bash them.

  • Bikram Singh

    All the reviews are true. Because no one wants to move to a prison like os.
    I am an ex ios user, I know it better. Ios is for kids, who want easy operation.
