    I am switching from Windows Phone to an iPhone 5s.

    I have the both device with me now but I want to make a proper transition.
    Guys I need your help,

    I want my transition to be smooth and hazel free. Hence, I will only put my sim into iPhone after I get help from you guys

    Features/Apps I used most,

    Windows mail-Similar experience in iPhone?
    OneNote-How is OneNote on iPhone?
    Pocket recorder-I need a recorder daily.
    Office-Office editors excel words pdf
    OneDrive-I have all data on OneDrive, it doesn't matter if I move to Dropbox or iCloud.
    WhatsApp-Heavy usage but planning to get bbm too on iPhone.
    MyTube/YouTube-Daily usage.

    Guys, suggest me for the above and other important info on switching over.

    Other relevant information ,
    I have to move as my office teammates demanded, we get iPhone from our company. I wasn't moving to iPhone as I love windows phone but due to some reason I lagged in certain areas, I prefer not to make flames here so just need assistance.

    Better. If you don't like the iPhones default mail program there are plenty of alternatives such as mailbox or accompli (bb 10 hub on steroids).

    OneNote-How is OneNote on iPhone?
    I use evernote. But here is a little blurb by Imore:
    http://m.imore.com/onenote-receives-...th-mac-and-ios

    Pocket recorder-I need a recorder daily.
    Plenty of apps.

    Office-Office editors excel words pdf
    Ms office is available on the App Store, apple also offers it's iWork suite for free

    OneDrive-I have all data on OneDrive, it doesn't matter if I move to Dropbox or iCloud.
    You don't have to move, I would move to icloud, but you can just download one drive on the App Store.

    WhatsApp-Heavy usage but planning to get bbm too on iPhone.
    Stick with what's app, bbm is unreliable.

    Good luck. 😃

    Thanks, good response mate.
    Seems OneNote is fairly developed for Apple devices too. I can move to evernote if it performs better... BBM is unreliable in what context?
    One question about recorder, can I move recorded files to pc?
    And one last question- what you meant by bb10 hub on steroids?

    I have no experience using one note. Try both out first and see which one you prefer.

    As for bbm being unreliable: undelivered msgs, hit or a miss with notifications, and generally laggy.

    Try telegram, the Ui is much much nicer and is not reliable and secure.

    Yup.

    You've come to the right place! I'm going to move this to the iPhone 5s forum to get you some more help. Also going to get some of our team members at Windows Phone Central to stop by and lend a hand. More help is on the way!

    -- if you use windows mail (outlook) there's an app called "OWA for iPhone that looks native. Otherwise I use cloudmail or the normal iPhone email (have too for iCloud and other app compatibility).

    OneNote-How is OneNote on iPhone?

    -- AWESOME

    Pocket recorder-I need a recorder daily.

    -- the iPhone has a voice memo app (recorder) which is flawless and sync the memos to your iTunes. I used to use it often for my college classes.

    Office-Office editors excel words pdf

    -- Use OneDrive and Office Mobile in sync . I do a lot of my college assignments on my phone and I use these two which work together amazingly on iPhone (better than GoogleDrive to me).Switching from Windows Phone to iPhone 5s-imageuploadedbytapatalk1401711942.108568.jpgSwitching from Windows Phone to iPhone 5s-imageuploadedbytapatalk1401711955.876429.jpg

    -- Above^ [i don't like using iCloud for docs but I've heard nothing but good news about Pages? I believe it's called]

    WhatsApp-Heavy usage but planning to get bbm too on iPhone.

    -- these are fine. I haven't noticed any lag.

    MyTube/YouTube-Daily usage.

    -- downloadable YT app that works without any hiccups

    If only I could get my wife to use OneNote on iPhone...she still uses....*gasp*...PAPER STICKY NOTES!

    Something else I'd suggest...you haven't mentioned which calendar service you used, but if you need a group/shared calendar, set it up on WP before moving over. On WP8 you can set up a Room and anyone with an MS Account can join that room. There is only one feature that carries over to iPhone though and that is the shared calendar. It is incredibly handy to just make one appointment on my Nokia 920 and (nearly) instantly have it show up on the Mrs. iPhone.

    Hey @unstoppablekem , I recognise you from wpc forum. I am still using windows phone as alternative.
    Actually, I use oneNote, Office and Onedrive a lot and it's so awesome that I don't miss windows phone but as those apps are far better on iPhone. Microsoft developed great apps for iOS.

    If only I could get my wife to use OneNote on iPhone...she still uses....*gasp*...PAPER STICKY NOTES!

    Lol for that paper, STICK NOTES. One note is awesome to keep all notes safe.

    Ya correct, I actually forgot Room it will come handy to me. Thanks.

    Thanks you all, imore has good response and most importantly response was accurate.
