Welcome Home for Windows Phone: a truly innovative app from Markspace to help new Lumia owners migrate to their new phone. With Welcome Home, you just plug in your Lumia to your computer (Mac or PC, your choice) and the application handles moving your contacts and personal data – quickly and easily.
Welcome Home works for new Lumia customers coming from iPhone, Android and BlackBerry phones and will move your contacts, calendars, pictures, songs and videos from your old phone to Microsoft Live. But what about all those apps you have on your old phone? No worries there, either.
The Welcome Home application will scan your apps on your old phone and will produce a list of recommended apps with scannable QR codes for easy download.
So, if you’re an Evernote user on your Android phone, for example, you’ll get the QR code for Evernote. However, if there’s an app that doesn’t have an exact match in the Windows Marketplace, Welcome Home will provide an alternative. For example, if you’re a Pandora user – you’ll get a suggestion such as Radio Controlled from Windows Marketplace.
