Quite possibly the worst mobile switching app I've ever used. It doesn't work whether it's USB or WiFi, it has so many problems. Why does it need to zip files when it could just simply transfer them!? Since it needs to zip them, you have to wait twice as long, and if you don't have enough space on the sending phone, you actually can't send the files. So ridiculous.

Works great. Install on old phone and then activate it and the preinstalled version on your new phone. Select the data you wish to transfer and it disconnects your WiFi to activate WiFi-direct to make the transfer. This works a treat, but you can use a USB cable, or SD card, if you have problems or prefer those options. The latter options might be best if you want to save on cellular data as it does download your apps from the app store instead of transferring them over, wirelessly. Hope this helps.

I tried & tried & tried & tried to use this to transfer all of my data from an old LG to a new LG and never got it to work. It worked right up to the point of starting the transfer then both phones lit up with "This phone is for sending only'. Meaning I was screwed if I wanted to transfer data to my new phone. It would not allow either phone to receive data only send. I found another app and it was really easy and fast to install and use. Power to anyone who tries and wins using this app.
