Microsoft Launches ‘Switch to Windows Phone’ App on Windows Phone and Google Play

May 1, 2013 1 Comment

Microsoft has just launched an app called ‘Switch to Windows Phone’ on the Windows Phone Store and Google Play (Android). The apps are intended to use together so that folks already switching to Windows Phone from Android can have an easier time finding their old apps.

However, I believe as a ‘tool’ this app should of been called something else. A ‘Switch to Windows Phone’ app on Android should of been filled with reasons to switch for folks on the fence.

Features: Windows Phone

  • Get the personalized app match results you generated when you ran this app on your Android
  • Each app icon in the list is a deep link to the app in the Windows Phone Store for easy download

Features: Google Play (Android)

  • Scan the installed apps on your phone
  • Find the Windows Phone equivalents
  • Save the personalized match results to retrieve later on your Windows Phone


Free to Download

( Google Play App)

App Info:  Windows Phone
Have you made the switch from Android to Windows Phone? Congratulations! Now let the Switch to Windows Phone app help you match your Android apps with their Windows Phone counterparts.
If you already ran the Switch to Windows Phone app on your Android phone and saved your match results, you can now install this app on your Windows Phone. Review the results, and then install the apps you want on your new phone.
Just log in to the app with the Microsoft account you used in the Android version. Then tap the apps you want, and Switch to Windows Phone takes you straight to the apps’ install pages.
(If you didn’t run Switch to Windows Phone on your Android, it’s not too late.  Download and run the app on your Android and make sure to save your list.)

App Info:  Google Play
Are you thinking about switching to Windows Phone and want a convenient way to migrate your app experiences over? Look no further, Windows Phone has an app for that!

Use Switch to Windows Phone to see how many of your Android apps are available on Windows Phone.  Just run Switch to Windows Phone on your Android, and this app will check to see if your installed apps are available in the Windows Phone Store. It’s that easy.

Then (if you choose) Switch to Windows Phone can save your results so you can retrieve them later on your new Windows Phone and install the apps. You don’t need to remember every app you had on your Android, and you download only the apps you want.
