What's new in version

Fix some bugs related with device compatibility.


We updated the former app "Switch to Windows Phone" and built this new version. It is preview version.

We are offering you two ways to move your data to Windows Phone:

(1) WiFi: if you’ve already set up your Windows phone. You’ll be able to move your contacts, text messages, photos, videos, and music over directly using virtual Wi-Fi and an app that you install on your new phone.
You do not need any network, real WiFi router or account. But you need to install a Windows Phone app on your Windows Phone. The name of the app is "Switch to Windows Phone". It's at https://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/switch-to-windows-phone/3286dd5d-3f98-435a-b80c-3fccba05a867

(2) OneDrive: if you haven’t set up your new phone yet. You’ll create a backup copy of your bookmarks, photos, videos, and apps, which can be downloaded automatically when you set up the new phone.
You need network connection and an Microsoft account.

1 ★ Really Microsoft, like you have to be kidding me, you're email address don't even work. Just like this app, I don't think that I would ever recommend this app at all. I have had this app open all day and it has still not loaded the WLAN ID or the password. I honestly thought that with this being a Microsoft product it would be a lot better then this.by Catherine Bueckert on November 21, 2016
1 ★ stupid, cannot do anything with this application. I tried to connect to one drive it shows invalid password even I entered correct one for some many times. tried with Wifi, it never shows any wland id. that the hell Microsoft? I should not buy your phone ever againby Athi Narayanan on November 10, 2016
1 ★ Terrible app. Won't authenticate live account and wifi mode completely broken. And when you search for answers you find the community page where replies are collapsed and can't actually be shown - in Chrome or Edge. Another fine product written by first year co-ops and left to rot in the app stores.by Private Name on July 30, 2017
3 ★ I just switched from Lumia 930 to Galaxy s6! Couldn't put up with no YouTube or descent apps any longer. Felt like I was just missing out on things.by Chronic's Tech Stuff on September 07, 2015
1 ★ I get to the WiFi connect part and on my Android where it should show a WiFi ID and password it is blank. But on my Windows phone there is a connection. So I see the signal to connect to but have no idea what the password would be!!! So useless!!!by Dean Luciano on February 08, 2016
1 ★ The first screen is supposed to offer 2 options (Wi-Fi or One Drive), however, it is not possible to scroll down the screen to access those options. Further, it's not possible to resize the screen to show the complete page. (I only know how the complete page should appear as I viewed in on my PC but cannot on an Android phone.) Without the ability to access the options on the very first screen, this application is rendered useless.by Mai Fantasia on June 11, 2017
1 ★ Farce.... not on Marshmallow, Lollypop, WP8.1 or 10... in no combination does this do anything at all - except this: waste your time. But we learned in 2016 what Microsoft thinks of WP users... tsssk.by D F on January 06, 2017
1 ★ It tells me I need a Windows phone for this to work. WTF. WHY WOULD I NEED THIS APP IF I ALREADY HAVE A WINDOWS PHONE. This need a lot of work.by Section 7 Review’s on December 11, 2015
5 ★ Works exactly as stated. Just be patient. It took me two attempts to locate the direct link. But I doubt that is the app. I am guessing it's the poor quality AP I use. Transferred 8000 sms messages without a hiccup. Glad I found this app.by Bill Stathakos on May 07, 2016
1 ★ Doesn't work on galaxy s6 running marshmallow. Will not find a wlan ID or password. MS hasn't updated in over a year. This is partly why they are happy wallowing in 1% market share.by Michael Brooks on November 27, 2016

Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like ApkClean.com goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why ApkClean.com can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from ApkClean.com, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.
