Last week, Microsoft announced the "Switch to Windows Phone" apps. Now you can pick them up in both the Google Play Store, and the Windows Phone Store. The apps are geared towards helping Android users make the switch to Windows Phone a lot easier by finding the same or similar Android apps on Windows Phone.
Android app description:
Are you thinking about switching to Windows Phone and want a convenient way to migrate your app experiences over? Look no further, Windows Phone has an app for that! Use Switch to Windows Phone to see how many of your Android apps are available on Windows Phone. Just run Switch to Windows Phone on your Android, and this app will check to see if your installed apps are available in the Windows Phone Store. It's that easy.
Then (if you choose) Switch to Windows Phone can save your results so you can retrieve them later on your new Windows Phone and install the apps. You don't need to remember every app you had on your Android, and you download only the apps you want.
Download the app from the Google Play Store.
Windows Phone app description:
Have you made the switch from Android to Windows Phone? Congratulations! Now let the Switch to Windows Phone app help you match your Android apps with their Windows Phone counterparts.
If you already ran the Switch to Windows Phone app on your Android phone and saved your match results, you can now install this app on your Windows Phone. Review the results, and then install the apps you want on your new phone.
Just log in to the app with the Microsoft account you used in the Android version. Then tap the apps you want, and Switch to Windows Phone takes you straight to the apps' install pages.
(If you didn't run Switch to Windows Phone on your Android, it's not too late. Download and run the app on your Android and make sure to save your list.)
Download the app from the Windows Phone Store.
