Microsoft releases AppComparison app to let you find your favourite Android apps on Windows Phone

Microsoft is working hard to take on Android and iOS with its Windows Phone. But as app count on Windows Phone is still far less in numbers compared to Google’s or Apple’s operating system, the software giant has now released AppComparison app to help you finding out your favourite Android apps on Windows Phone.

AppComparison app is simply designed to let you easily make your mind to switch from Android to Windows Phone. Once installed, it starts looking through all the existing Android apps that you’ve installed on your smartphone and then provides you a list of apps which are available on Windows Phone. As the app count is not comparable with Android, there are some similar results instead of all the exact ones.

For instance, we have Google Drive on one of our Android device but AppComparison provides us OneDrive. The app also has a ‘Recommended’ tab that has recommendations from genres like news, entertainment and games among others. The company says in the description that these are “some of the most popular Windows Phone applications.”

AppComparison app is available for free download on Google Play Store. It is compatible with devices running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or above and is 2.8MB in size.

The Redmond company is already in development to grow on mobile devices using Windows 10 Mobile. Meanwhile, the release of AppComparison suggests that there are some plans persuade and convince existing Android users to start using Windows Phone. The app, however, instead of convincing, somewhere shows the gap between Android and Windows Phone by bringing out just a handful of exact results.

At its Build developer conference back in April, Microsoft showcased a new technology that will let developers start porting Android and iOS apps directly onto Windows 10. The technology was speculated to be released later this year and was in the pipeline for existing and new apps but was delayed recently.
