AppComparison: Microsoft´s new App motivates users to switch from Android to Windows 10

-

The new AppComparison App helps users who plans on switching to devices point out the apps which are and aren't on the store.

According to Microsoft on its Play listing, this software spots out the user's favorite Android applications and gives an equivalent app that is found in Microsoft´s Windows Store.

If AppComparison finds apps with no original version for Windows, the App suggests a possible replacement with a comparable feature set. The tool is also promoting other Windows Phone applications that are usually picked and popular.

Microsoft claims that they aim to make Android developers easily port their apps to Windows 10 mobiles as a plan to resolve the “app shortage”.
