Apple ‘Move To iOS’ App Slammed By Users, And Hilariously So: Check Out The Reviews

Apple released its new “Move to iOS” app in the Play Store, which helps “migrate your content automatically and securely from your Android device.”

Apple released its new “Move to iOS” app in the Play Store, which helps “migrate your content automatically and securely from your Android device.” This content includes contacts, pictures and other data. But while “everything about iOS is designed to be easy,” Android fans are slamming the app and are taking the concept of transferring their data to an iOS device as an insult, as reported by The Verge.

“I call on my fellow Android comrades to ensure this app gets drowned into oblivion with a 1-star rating never to be seen again on our cherished platform,” Segun Omojokun writes.

Of the total number of reviews the app has elicited, 800 people gave it 5 stars – and 3,300 gave it 1 star. The app’s overall rating stands at a massively disappointing 1.8.

Some of the best written reviews include:

Robert Kirsch writes, “I’d rather be shot in the face than switch to a closed, controlled environment. Apple will be the next BlackBerry in a few years.” Another dismayed user writes, “When I downloaded the app it immediately prompted me to have full body reconstruction surgery in order to appear more like a sheep.” One user referred to Move to iOS as a “time travel app,” further writing, “Ever wish you could go back in time? Well now you can! Experience all the features you have had for years all over again, but this time in slow, drawn out increments.”

While majority of the reviewers trolled the app, there were some people who did leave constructive criticism. “I’m rating 2 stars because this app probably works well, but it was done so poorly,” Connor Kirkby writes. “I get that this is an Android to iPhone app, but you could have at least used a Material Design theme.” Joe Maples’ review says, “No Material Design, probably in Objective-C, doesn’t work on my iPod touch 4th gen at all, can’t overclock my toaster, and no included stylus!!” Michael Sousa commended Apple’s hardware, but said its “software” is “only a blind idiot would use and all your best software features were taken from Android. This software doesn’t even follow the Android design specs.”

Justin Vanpop writes that he was prompted to “have full body reconstruction surgery in order to appear more like a sheep,” saying, “I do not appreciate this one bit especially since the app is not up to Material Design standards.” Hitesh Chavda writes, “At least try to respect design specs for other OS. Shame on YOU!!!” Derek Le criticizes the lack of functionality and poor design features, writing, “The fact that this app require you to own an Apple device to run is ridiculous.”
