    You can't. Apps do not transfer between android and iOS.

    You can't. You'll need to download all of your apps separately through the App Store. Any apps you have that cost money you'll need to pay for again.

    Sony is ahead of Apple in that: when you switch to Xperia, there is a PC app that checks software installed on your iPhone and propose you the alternative Android version of the same software house. Very useful !!

    Would it be really that hard to figure out what apps you need once you're in the Play Store? I laugh at any statement that begins with "Sony is ahead of Apple...."

    It's not difficult, I didn't say that. But when you have 100 apps installed it's boring and a WASTE of TIME !!!

    100? That's not very many. It shouldn't take much time for you to search them out manually.

    As to "BORING", well that one is on you.

    Its not a waste of time if you need those 100 apps. Personally, I only need 5 very particular apps at any given time. so its not that much of a time sink if I get those 5 and add the rest as I remember them over a week or so.

    Guys, we are not discussing why I need it, but only if it's possible or not.

    I believe Karen did answer your question at the beginning of this thread. There's no way to transfer apps between Android and ios.

    Sorry, she didn't. It's quite obvious that they are programmed in a different way, and they are not compatible.
    My question is different, but maybe too difficult to realize from Android to iOS (but the vice-versa from Sony exists, their engineers already gave a solution to their customers).

    Thank you for feeback.
    Just to give a better example of the tool I would this, I post this link of Sony's tool, called Xperia Transfer.

    in that case even motorola has its own app called migrate.

    I read that, but I'm not sure it can do app migration as well, while Sony's certainly does it. I believe it scans you iTunes backup, and then it propose Play alternatives for each of you iTunes app. You just need to review and then it will bulk-install them.

    They have that solution most likely because they're much more desperate for customers to use their handsets as opposed to Apple and other Android manufacturers. If you want to stick to the subject related to your question in the title that's fine. But when you start mentioning what other OS' s and devices can do, expect to have a discussion on that also.

    Even if it was possible, why would you want to get "malware" loaded apps from Android onto your iPhone.

    Your question is the same as can I get my custom accessories from my old car to the new one in bulk? No, you cannot.

    App transfer isn't possible. Your question has been answered. If you need to transfer music from iTunes to your new Android phone, just use double twist. It's on the Play Store.

    @marcellen --- How to transfer data from your old Android phone to a new iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c | iMore

    That article helps with some things but as for the apps unfortunately you will have to probably re-download them all. I would suggest plugging your phone into iTunes and downloading them through that (it will install to the iPhone) and you should be good. Not the easiest and it does take some time but ... that is the best I have found.

    Good luck!
