Los Gatos, CA (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
Mark/Space, Inc., the leading developer of phone and tablet synchronization solutions for PC and Mac, today announced the availability of the new Welcome Home to Windows Phone - Nokia Lumia Edition application for customers who are new to the Windows Phone platform. Welcome Home is a comprehensive one-time set-up tool, offering customers who are transitioning from a BlackBerry, iPhone or Android device, a fast and easy way to set-up a Nokia Lumia phone with their info and media. Welcome Home also leverages Quixey’s app search technology that sees the apps people already own and presents the app if it has a Windows Phone version. For the apps that don’t have an exact match, users are recommended similar apps for Windows Phone.
"Transitioning to a new phone or mobile device is something that should be as seamless and painless as possible for the user," said Brian Scott Toney, Mark/Space Director of Sales and Business Development. "No one wants to spend part of their day re-typing address book entries or fumbling around trying to get their photos off of their old device. We capture their workout playlist, vacation photos from their old phone, video they shot of their friends, even info and media from their computer, so that folks could complete their device set-up in minutes instead of hours."
“With smartphones serving as the hub of digital content, consumers are looking for an easy and efficient solution for moving their digital lives to a new device,” says Ignacio Riesgo, Head of Developer Experience, Nokia Americas. “To address this need, we worked with Mark/Space and Quixey to create a unique tool to ensure that content and applications make a safe transition to a Nokia Lumia device, without sacrificing the experiences they’ve grown accustomed to.”
The Welcome Home to Windows Phone - Nokia Lumia Edition application reviews the apps on the consumers old phone and gathers media and personal information from an old phone or PC/Mac computer, then suggests new apps and packages everything to be moved to a Nokia Lumia device.
- Music and iTunes playlists
