During Apple’s iPhone 6s keynote announcement, Tim Cook mentioned that iPhones are the most loved phones in the world. With the introduction of iPhone 6/6 Plus, he shared that more people are making the switch from the Android smart phones. Based on this trend, they had introduced a “Move to iOS” app on the Google Play Store to make the transition even smoother.
That should keep everybody happy right? Unfortunately things doesn’t seem to go well as planned.
Like the name suggests, the Move to iOS app is designed to make switching from Android to an iPhone easier. It allows you to transfer existing photos, messages, contacts, calendars and more over WiFi. With Android die hard fans seeing this as a blasphemous act, they had raged a “Review” war by downloading the app and then leaving some deliberately poor ratings along with some interesting remarks.
Some of the comments are hilarious with one claiming that he is turning into a sheep and another reporting the app is fake as it turned his LG G3 into a BlackBerry curve. There are those that are demanding Google to remove such app as Apple themselves would not allow such app to exist on their own App Store. There’s an iOS app guideline that prohibits any mentions of other mobile platform. At time of writing, the “Move to iOS” app has gotten 14,330 reviews, 80% of them being ranked with just 1 star.
