Switching from iOS to Android: A helpful guide

ios to android

When I made the switch from iOS to Android, it was pretty easy. I was already using Google services for as much as I possibly could. It was part of the reason I decided to switch. Why use Apple products to access Google services when I could use Google products to access Google services?

So when it came time to transfer over my contacts, calendar, photos, music, email and other services I used Google to log into, it was just a matter of entering my log-in credentials. And because I’m a nerd who likes to plan out technology changes like this, I made a list of all the apps I couldn’t live without, found them in the Google Play store, and bookmarked them so that when I got my first Android device, it would just take a few taps to complete the switch from iOS to Android.

Sadly, not everyone is like me. Some people use other services. Some people use Apple products to access Apple services.
