Android to iPhone, iPhone to Android

iphone-to-androidAt long last, the Apple iPhone 6 and 6+ have been released into the wild, along with iOS 8. And the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Android 5/Android L are set for release soon.  These have been the topic of much discussion here in the Vitale Digital Media Lab, and I’ve heard several conversations about people switching from one platform to the other.  But how do you do that exactly?  Not only do you need to get your data from one device to the other, but there’s also a bit of a learning curve for people who are adopting an entirely new operating system on their phones.

Here are some links to make your transition easier:

Lifehacker has a guide on Jumping Ship from iPhone to Android: A Switcher’s Guide

Apple created a guide on Moving Content from your Android Phone to iPhone (which I also discovered via Lifehacker)

Lynda.com also has some training content you might find useful during the switching process.  If you’re not a subscriber to Lynda.com yourself, remember you can reserve one of our Lynda.com licenses (at least 1 day in advance, and up to 7 days in advance) and watch the training videos in the comfort of your own home.

iOS 8 New features
Android Essential Training
(you’ll need to be logged into Lynda in order to watch those online courses)

Do you have other suggestions for people making the switch?  If so, please share them in the comments!
