Motorola makes it easier to switch from the Apple iPhone to a new Motorola model

You can also transfer your content from any smartphone running on Android 2.2 or higher, to any of those Motorola devices. The content that you can transfer from another Android handset to those recent Motorola phones includes text history, video, call history and SIM contacts.
To transfer info from iOS, you install the app onto your new Motorola phone and follow the directions. If the information is coming from your old Android phone, you install the app on the older handset and follow the directions on transferring the information to your new Motorola smartphone.
Motorola has offered this before with the MotoMaker. This way, you can have all of your important contacts and other personal data already on your new Moto X. Motorola has been moving some of its system applications to the Google Play Store to speed up the updating process. Now, the Google owned subsidiary is not only making it easier to move from the Apple iPhone to a new Motorola handset, but is also making it easier to go from an older Android model to one of the new Motorola units.

This article is misleading. You're talking about moving from android phones and the iPhone to the Motorola X. Only calendars and contacts transfer over.

Let's review this, shall we, because it is in the story. iOS to Motorola : Contacts and calendar Android to Motorola: text history, video, call history and SIM contacts. Says so right in the story...there is nothing misleading about it. Now what happens if I trick you into saying your name backward? Alan F.

No Alan if you post a misleading title, such as the one for this article, people will get the wrong impression. Your title and article gives readers the impression that it's easy to change from the iPhone to the Motorola X. You fail to mention that only two things switched over. Now if you had said "Motorola makes it easy to switch from your old phone to a Motorola X" then the title would've made more sense. That's the overall impression I'm getting from the article and not the misleading title. I can see professionalism and good journalism isn't native to you, but you should try it. Save yourself some credibility.

With the App "AirDroid" you can also move all your pictures & music from iTunes over also... In fact the only thing you can't move is games. I've moved all my video from my iMac over to Androids Samsung Note. Not all but the ones i want on my phone.

All such Apps helps transfering data from one OS to another or from one device to another assuming that you will retain your older device while buying the new device. But what if I sell off my older device to get a hand on a new device? Like I just upgraded from Note II to Note III. First sold off Note II, took the cash, included the deficit amount and got the Note III. In this case all I coud get in the name of back up was my contact and calender. Any suggestion is welcome though,considering that I might be missing some point.

Well if you had a microSD card from the old Note you could put it in the new one that way you have your pictures, music, and other files.

Subliminally it also implies that there is no need for an app to leave Moto to iOS or wp.
