    I've never switched platforms, so I've never tried to do this, but I'm not sure how this would work. Obviously you can't "transfer" the apps since an iPhone app wouldn't run on Android. But I guess an app could be built that would scan the apps on your old phone, list them, log you onto the Android Play Store and download them for you? Obviously any paid apps you would have to re-buy, since Apple and Google have no reciprocal agreement.

    Contacts, pictures, text messages, etc can be transferred, but I'm not sure how it would work with apps.

    Saddly you can't . You'll need to go into the Google play store and find the app's and down load them .
