Microsoft is planning to release a new app called ‘Switch to Windows Phone’ for Android devices. Microsoft believes that many new users to Windows Phone will probably come from Android platform and this new app will help them in migrating from their old smartphone platform. an This new Android app will find identical or replacement applications for Windows Phone 8 to replace their old Android apps.
Quixey supplies the apps-search engine within Switch to Windows Phone. The engine uses descriptions of apps, reviews of apps, trouble reports about apps and other metadata it gathers from the Web to recommend substitute applications to users, Gowrappan says. The goal is to make them as close as possible to matching the app on the Android phone.
