Design, Navigation, and Usability: Last Quest for iOS
The app’s design is great and very simple, as it only has one basic feature. The navigation is also pretty clear, as transferring your data is a step by step process with almost no divarication. The usability, however, is surprisingly bad, as the app does not provide you with correct and understandable instructions. Many users seem to be confused with the app’s advice, as by the reviews, you can easily understand that a lot of people did not figure out how to use it. IOS is famous for its usability, and if you have decided to switch to an iPhone after using an Android device, this app will be your last quest on the way to simplicity.
Security: The Root of the Issues
Security is the main reason for the bad usability of the app. The data is transferred through a secure private network created on the iOS device. This is the only option to make the transfer completely secure and remove any possibility of external interference, but it really confuses the users. There is no risk in transferring the data, but to do the procedure properly, you will have to follow several instructions. First of all, the app is designed for new iOS devices, so in case you have bought a used iPhone, you should completely reset it. Secondly, the iOS device creates a closed network, which results in disabling the Wi-Fi on this device, so you should either not install the SIM card before the procedure is finished, or make sure you have an Internet plan on the SIM card.
Features: Transfer Data
There is not much to tell about the features of Move to iOS. The app is designed to transfer data from your Android device to a new iOS device and supports transferring the contacts, the message history, the web bookmarks, the mail accounts, and the calendars. And of course, it allows to transfer photos and videos from the Android device.
