    I'm a Mac user and use an app called Android File Transfer for Mac. It allows you to transfer just about anything.

    had to pay for it, but works fine for me. Not only for contacts, music, photos and videos, but also text messages on my iphone 4s .

    Thank you!

    So glad that worked for you, Vince! And welcome to the world of Android! The saying, "There's an app for that" could also apply to YouTube with, "There's a video for that."

    FWIW, I have a Mac so I have also used Android File Transfer App with much success. But I also admit openly that doing things on my Samsung is much, much easier on my hubby's PC.

    Samsung has introduced a utility called Smart Switch that enables users to transfer data from an iPhone to Samsung devices. Unfortunately, it supports only few devices like Galaxy S4. Not to worry there are program's like mobitrans phone transfer to transfer data from iPhone to android and vice versa. You can use it to transfer almost everything including SMS and contact list from your iPhone to any android device.

    Generally, iphone apps aren't transferable to android - different operating system, different levels of technology - but my question is why would you WANT to transfer them?

    Actually, Samsung provides an free app named Smart Switch Mobile to help people to transfer critical information stored in your iCloud backups so that the iPhone users may be more willing to use the new Galaxy S5. It can be downloaded in Google Play Store. And my roommate has used it once, we think it is really convenience. But for the large files like music, video and pics, we finally found MobileTrans, an phone to phone data transfer. Because we have a poor network. We ware followed this guide at the time.

    Moving data to my Galaxy s5 was as easy as pie with mobiletrans and following the steps listed here: A Short Guide to Copy or Transfer Data from iPhone to Your Samsung Galaxy S5

    It can help you to copy everything from your iPhone to Galaxy S5 including text messages.

    Edit: I also tried Smart Switch but couldn’t transfer all the data (like text messages and some media files) from my iPhone to my new Galaxy S5.
