Nokia has launched a new app that will make it easy for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry users to make the move or convert to Windows Phone. The app makes moving all your contacts, calendars and apps over from your old phone to your new Lumia Windows Phone nice and easy.
Welcome Home to Windows Phone is an app from Markspace that migrates all the information and is compatible with both PC and Mac systems. The app will first back up everything from your old device and then transfer contacts, appointments, pictures, songs and videos to your new Windows Phone. The Welcome Home app will only copy DRM-free (unrestricted rights) songs and videos.
As far as apps are concerned, the Welcome Home to Windows Phone app will scan your old phone to see what apps are installed. Welcome Home will then produce a list of recommended apps (either identical or similar) for your Windows Phone. The listing will even include the QR codes to make downloading a little easier.
If you've considered making the move to Windows Phone from another system but the pain of transferring contacts, calendars and other items held you back, Welcome Home to Windows Phone looks like it'll take the hassle out of making such a move.
You can download the free Welcome Home to Windows Phone app here with options for PC and OSX downloads.
