About this app

iSMS2droid imports all your Apple iPhone SMS texts and iMessages into Android's messaging app - FOR FREE!

Please be aware that this app only works with unencrypted SMS databases. If you have encryption enabled for your backups, disabled it and create a new backup - you can of course enable encryption again after the import.

--- Instructions ---

Step 1) Check for detailed instructions on how to get your iPhone SMS database, then copy it via USB cable/Dropbox/etc. onto your Android phone.

Step 2) Start iSMS2droid and tap on "Import Messages" to select your iPhone SMS database file.

Step 3) Choose if you want to import all messages, or select specific conversations by contact.

Step 4) Rate or review this app on Google Play if you are happy with it.

If you have any issues with my app, please contact me at instead of leaving a bad rating or a negative review, as those help neither of us! ;-)

Your one stop shop for transferring iPhone messages to your Android phone. Amazing, worked like a charm. If it says you're file is wrong/encrypted and you know it's the right file/not an encrypted file. Back out, close the app, go back in, see if that works.. all of a sudden it came up properly. Maybe it's because I'm on Android 10, minor bug, no issues. Still worked perfectly 👍

This app was my last resort and I'm glad I did. Apple makes things so difficult to do anything so I'm going back to Droid. I was ready to give up and either lose all my messages or carry 2 phones around forever. Lol. It took a while for the actual transfer (47k+ messages will do that) but that was my choice, not the app. The most time consuming was the backup to PC Note: Read the directions before doing anything other than the backup on your PC and you won't have any problems. Super happy!! 🙂

To the developer(s) - DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING. This is utter perfection and really does do the one thing that anyone who switches from iPhone to Android wants. Their damn messages!! You need iTunes to have this process work, but once you backup your iPhone (unencrypted) and get the appropriate files to whatever storage you use (Google Drive, Dropbox, or even directly on your new phone) it's impressively pain-free. Please again I cannot stress, DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT THIS APP. IT WORKS EXACTLY AS INTENDED.
