    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?
