Microsoft has for some time now been working to bring its services across all platforms, with the inclusion of iOS and Android, but then its most recent app, called AppComparison, has the possibility of gripping a pretty small target audience. The description for AppComparison, released to Google Play on Friday, starts like this: “Are you considering changing your Android device to Windows Phone?”
Just as you could have thought, the app, once installed, will search through your Android apps and let you know which ones has the capacity to run on Windows 10 Mobile. For the large pile of apps that don’t match up, Microsoft will suggest comparable apps performing similar actions that are available on the mobile OS.
Microsoft’s mobile efforts have really been on a low for close to two years, but the company has just brought out its debut two phones with Windows 10, the Lumia 950 and 950XL. The phones aims towards the target of unifying with Windows on the desktop as well as the new Windows-powered Xbox One user interface.
Like Windows Phone 8 before it, however, it at present has a restricted selection of some vital popular apps, like Snapchat or Gmail.
