Move to iOS app didn’t work, and you are considering a replacement? Read this post to get 5 top best Move to iOS Alternatives that we collected in 2018.
You may think that you can move everything from your Android phone to the new iPhone 11 (Pro) or the new iPad using Move to iOS app, and you think it’s the best app to transfer data from Android to iPhone. But after trying it out, you found this app was so complex to use or even didn’t work?
In fact, the users’ rating for Move to iOS is not so good – it got only 3 stars of average ratings on Google Play.
To smoothly migrate data from Android to iPhone iPad, you may need a replacement of Move to iOS app. In this post, we collected 5 professional Android to iPhone transfer tools that you can take as replacements. Now let’s take a look at these apps.
Top 5 Move to iOS Alternative Apps I Collected in 2018 and 2019
There are some best apps to transfer data from Android to iPhone. I’ve been collecting this kind of apps since 2018 and I’ve recently added some new apps to this list on March 2019. And just enjoy them!
Most of these apps require you to connect devices to the computer using USB cables since this could be stable for transferring large numbers of files. (Generally, it would be more stable using cables than Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to start a connection.)
These apps are not free. I’ve tried my best to get free ones but found that none of them are free.
AnyTrans for iOS – Move to iOS Feature ($49.99)
AnyTrans is one of excellent iPhone transfer apps developed by iMobie. In 2018, it added a completely free feature to help new iOS users migrate data from their old Android devices.
As one of the top Move to iOS Alternatives, this app can be better than Move to iOS since it would be more stable to transfer all or only some specific items to iPhone from Android, and even from cloud drive and another iOS device. Watch the attached videos to know more.
This app is more than one Move to iOS alternative, but also one of best iPhone transfer programs I found that supports backing up your iPhone, making custom ringtones, downloading videos, etc.

Printing messages conversations can be pretty easy once you know some iPhone messages transfer programs. This post listed two professional iPhone messages transfer apps you may like to use for printing iPhone messages.
I’ve experienced some tedious and time-consuming methods to print the text messages on my iPhone. For instance, I took screenshots to record a part of my messages, saved them to photos app and then share them to a computer for printing. It worked but obviously is not suitable for printing a complete message conversation.
To export and print messages from my iPhone easily, I tested some iPhone messages transfer apps, and here I’ll share two apps that I think could give you an easy way to print text messages, iMessages and even WhatsApp chats on your iPhone, no matter for court or other reasons.
In fact, some iPhone transfer apps have the ability to extract messages, and WhatsApp conversations from iTunes backups as printable document files like PDF and HTML.
Therefore, after you backup your iPhone using iTunes, you can use these apps to get the messages from the iTunes backup and then print iPhone messages easily using the printer that hooked up to your computer.
What Defines One Good Program to Print Messages?
As one professional app for transferring and printing iPhone messages and WhatsApp, firstly it should be able to print all types of messages such as SMS, MMS, iMessages, WhatsApp chat history, and attachments. Besides, the process should be easy and simple to follow. At last, the price should be reasonable.
Almost all iPhone messages transfer apps work in Windows and Mac computer. Therefore, the best app should be compatible with the popular computer operating system, like Windows 10, Windows 8 and macOS. In addition, it ought to support all iPhone generations, of course, including the new iPhone XS and XR.
Top Best Apps to Export and Print Messages on iPhone [Updated in 2019]
1. iMazing – Offer “Print” button.
iMazing is one of the best iPhone transfer apps that I’ve introduced before. And the feature I like most is the clean interface, which makes the messages transferring easy in clicks.
iMazing can automatically extract text messages, iMessages and WhatsApp from the latest iPhone backup or help you create one new iTunes backup using your iPhone instead of asking you to do these jobs manually. In addition, iMazing is the only app I found that provide with the “Print” button that you can use to quickly print iPhone SMS, iMessages and WhatsApp chats.
Just like other similar apps, iMazing also allows you to preview the message contents and to choose several or all the messages/conversations for printing. Download iMazing Free Trial
WhatsApp is widely used by people around the world, and the WhatsApp messages exporting and printing feature is newly added to iMazing 2 recently. With this feature, you can preview, export and 1-click print selected chats and attachments of WhatsApp on a Mac or a Windows PC.
2. Decipher TextMessages – Focus on iPhone messages
I choose Decipher TextMessages because it is the special app that I found focus on managing only the iPhone messages. It can transfer, print and recover messages on your iPhone. It is cheaper than iMazing.
This app is developed by Decipher Tools which is located in San Francisco, USA. The company offers you the local phone number that you can use to get a quick response when you face any problem using the app to print messages.
To print text messages, Decipher TextMessages will firstly ask you to make an iPhone backup to computer. Next, it will auto import text messages from your iTunes backups.

I collected more than 15 iPhone data recovery apps, including Dr.fone, PhoneRescue, Fonepaw, Enigma Recovery, etc. In this post, I’d like to share my collected apps and show my opinion on what make the best iPhone data recovery software. [Jan 2019 updated]
In the USA, over 40 percents of people use iPhone, and thousands of them are struggling in data loss every day due to reasons like iOS update fail, device broken or factory reset. For retrieving lost data, some iOS users like to use professional apps. But, which data recovery software is worth trying and can be the best one for the iPhone?
These apps did get back something, such as text messages and pictures, and was able to retrieve files from my iPhone backups. Below are my ratings for these apps, as well as the price and money-back guarantee they offer. (I’ve recently updated this app reviews list on Feb 2019)
Wondershare’s Dr.Fone gives you a full toolkit to fix the problems on your mobile. And its Dr.Fone -Recover (iOS) is specially developed for finding deleted data from your iOS devices and retrieving data from your iOS backups. If you’ve accidentally deleted something on your iPhone, Dr.Fone would be very helpful to get them back.
This app works on the computer. And I’ve installed Dr.Fone on my Windows computer, and tested it for retrieving my deleted messages on my iPhone 7, and it worked well to get back some of my lost messages that Abbie sent me. And it also gets back some images I’ve attached to the conversation.
The recovery feature – Restore from iTunes backup file is really good for people who have ever synced or backed up their device to iTunes. This feature allows me to preview and extract the pictures, call history, old messages, and other things hidden in the backup files on my computer.
This software provides with a free trial for users to scan and preview deleted data. But if you want to recover the lost data to your device or print the data as some document files, you have to buy its full version license to remove the free trial limitations.
2. PhoneRescue for iOS – Best for Messages Recovery
There are lots of data recovery software for iOS devices but few of them is close to PhoneRescue when comes to messages recovery. (Based on my test, this app can find more deleted messages than other similar apps, although it cannot recover all deleted items.)
This app is known for its Compare function which can automatically pick out those files that stored in your iPhone backup file but disappeared from your mobile device. This is good for quickly finding your lost iPhone data from backups.
Similar to Dr.Fone, PhoneRescue also released one free trial version through which you can scan the deleted data and know whether there is something recoverable. However, if you want to preview all deleted items or recover them to your iOS device, you have to pay at least $49.99 to activate the recover function.
Supported Platforms: Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, both 32bit and 64bit; macOS Mojave, macOS High Sierra, macOS Sierra, OS X 10.11, 10.10, 10.9, 10.8.
3. FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery
FonePaw provides mobile users with many useful solutions including the data recovery service we are talking about. Its iPhone data recovery app performs a good job in retrieving data for people are regretting deleting files on iPhone and iPad.
Just like PhoneRescue and Dr.Fone, FonePaw also gives three modes to get back deleted files from iPhone: Recover from iOS Device, Recover from iTunes Backup and Recover from iCloud. You can choose any mode according to your situation. For instance, if your iPhone was stolen or lost, you can try to recover from iTunes backup or from iCloud.
Based on my tests, this software is good for recovering data from iTunes and is capable of finding deleted items directly from the iPhone via its Recover from iOS Device mode.
But it’s not perfect because FonePaw can’t access my iCloud backup.
Besides, it isn’t free software, also. And its trial version has limitations.
And you should notice that this app can’t get the deleted data back to the iPhone, but only save the deleted items as files like PDF.
Supported Platforms: Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, both 32bit and 64bit; Mac OS X 10.7 – 10.14.
Enigma Recovery would be another professional data recovery tool for iOS users. Just like PhoneRescue, it offers 3 modes to assist you to retrieve lost files on iPhone and iPad. Besides, it’s the only app that offers support via telephone calls in UK/USA areas.
Based on my test, Enigma did well on extracting my lost files from iPhone backup, and 100% safe without the virus. However, it failed to access my iCloud backup, and couldn’t connect my iOS 12 device. You can read my full review of Enigma Recovery in this 2018 to get the detailed info.
This software is not free and charges from 59.99 dollars.
5. FoneLab iPhone Data Recovery
FoneLab is designed by Aiseesoft Studio, one famous software developer dedicated to producing mobile, multimedia and PDF Tools. I’ve downloaded it to my Windows 10 computer and used its data recovery function to retrieve my deleted texts.
As I found, FoneLab is quite similar to FonePaw on the interface and the features. These two apps may be the same app but with different interface and price. FoneLab’s price started from $79.95, and FonePaw from $89.95.
ApowerRescue is one iOS files recovery software developed by Apowersoft Ltd. It runs on Windows computer and works for retrieving your accidentally lost files and information from iPhone and iPad. Like most of its rivals, it gives people three methods of helping get back data as much as possible.
According to my tests, this app is safe to use and is able to rescue some files. But it doesn’t guarantee a full recovery of deleted photos, messages, and contacts. And it doesn’t support working on a Mac computer although it gives you the download link for Mac. (This link is redirected to another app that it cooperates with.)
7. Other iPhone data recovery apps I’ve used.
Besides the above apps, I’ve also tested other iPhone recovery apps, which have similar features to those I listed above. And almost all these apps can recover a few pieces of information and files on my iPhone device.
MobiSaver for iOS
EasyRecovery for iPhone
Stellar Data Recovery for iPhone
iSkysoft iPhone Data Recovery
Leawo iOS Data Recovery
Gihosoft iPhone Data Recovery
Disk Drill 3
Tipard iOS Data Recovery
What makes the best iPhone data recovery（My Personal Opinion ）?
The best iPhone data recovery in my eyes is the one with an easy and quick recovery speed, a good compatibility and data recovery capability, and NO Virus. Of course, the price should be reasonable if the app is not free, at least, not expensive than individual data recovery service from local iOS experts.
For me, the primary considerations in choosing one iPhone data recovery app are the iPhone compatibility and data recovery capability. The best iPhone recovery app is ought to be compatible with a wide range of iPhone models, and be able to recover a variety of data types/formats, like messages, photos, and contacts.
Secondly, I would like a simple recovery process. The design of the recovery app should be clean and easy to understand so that the app can quickly navigate users to where the users want to go. That means the best iPhone data recovery program should have an easy and quick recovery process.
Finally, as one software, I care about whether it’s safe since some virus may be hidden in the app installers. So before using any iPhone data recovery software I would like to scan them from virus using security software.
How do these apps work to recover data on an iPhone?
1. These apps offer you two methods to recover data.
In general, almost all of these iPhone data recovery software support recovering your lost data in two methods, retrieving data from iPhone directly without backup and extracting data from iPhone backup you made using iTunes or iCloud.
2. These apps work on the computer.
All of these apps are working on Windows PC or Mac because as one professional iPhone data recovery tool, they should be able to extract files and info from iTunes backup for retrieving when the iPhone was lost, damaged, stolen or crashed.
3, They are commercial software with a free trial version.
Some of these apps are called “Free”, but it’s not real. They are actually commercial software developed by independent software vendors. And these vendors offer some free trials with many limitations.
If you’re searching for some best Android file encryption software, you’ve come to the right place. Here I share 4 free apps that use passwords to carefully protect your sensitive and important apps/files on your Android device.
You know that you can set up the lock-screen to protect all the data on phone and tablet. But this is only some basic setting to keep things safe, and it is still possible that your locked screen device be hacked by some people.
In order to keep private files and apps always be safe from malicious attack, you can also use some Android encryption apps to lock specific apps and files via passcode, pattern or fingerprint. Thus your important files will always be hidden from the unauthorized users, and be safe always.
How to choose the best Android File Encryption app?
There are so many file encryption apps on the Google Play store or other Android app publishing platform. So how could you get the perfect one for you?
In general, the best Android File Encryption app ought to have the basic features to encrypt files, app and app data in usual methods like Passcode, Pattern, and Fingerprint. And it should support a wide range of Android operation system and phone brands, whether the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 or the Google Pixel. And the most important, for me, I would like some free apps that have no ads inserted.
Best Android file encryption apps I collected in 2018 and 2019
This list is recently updated on June 2019 to provide you with the top encryption app for your Android devices.
And we removed the app like File Encryption (FileEnc) because we’ve found its encrypted image is still shown on Gallery unless you refresh the Gallery app. And the last update time of this app is Dec 29, 2014. And somebody suggested me to add the app Lock / Encrypt Files. But after testing this app, we found the design is so bad, and hard to use, although it could add a vault folder to hide and encrypt almost any file types like images, videos, downloads, etc.
S.S.E (Secret Space Encryptor) is an all-in-one Android encryption app with the functions of managing passwords and encrypting files & texts. By using various strong algorithms like AES and RC6, it could protect your messages, notes, and file from any unwanted readers.
To encrypt one file or folder is pretty simple, just open this app and go to File Encryptor, select file or folder, and tap Encrypt Dir. After input your password, the file/folder will be encrypted.
BluePrints AppLock 2018 (Free)
BluePrints AppLock is one of the best encryption apps for Android I’ve met. This app offers lots of free functions for Android users to protect privacy and personal information, like the function to hide images/videos and the feature to encrypt apps. I like it because of its simple interface and no ads inserted.
As one of the perfect app lockers, it can protect your Android apps from unauthorized persons by locking them with passcode, pattern, and fingerprint. Additionally, it can also record the head picture of intruders who attacks this app by keep typing wrong passcode.
ZenCrypt – Securely Encrypt Files
The ZenCrypt app was updated on January 17, 2019, and it is well compatible with the latest Android devices. With the encryption algorithm of 128-bit AES, CBC, and PKCS5 padding, it can protect your files and folders well with a passcode and even with your unique fingerprint. (Note: you’ll have to update to the Pro version to use fingerprint to encrypt your files.)
The app interface is easy to understand, so you can quickly get to know how to use this app to encrypt and decrypt your files on your Andriod phone.
EgoSecure Encryption Anywhere (Free)
EgoSecure Encryption Anywhere is one file manager with file encryption capabilities. It can encrypt any file with a password to protect it from unauthorized access when they are stored on the Android device or in cloud storage. And you can also transfer the encrypted files via Internet to your friends or family. After receiving, they can decrypt the file using the password you set via EgoSecure.
This Android file encrypts app is completely free and you can download it from Google. The disadvantage is that it doesn’t give you the navigation or shortcuts to directly access often-used file types for a quick encryption/decryption.
