While it all seems simple, there are some things you need to know to make the process even smoother.

  • Turn on USB Debugging mode on your Android device. AppTrans contains an instruction on how to do it and displays it to you as you start the process. It has detailed instructions for Samsung, Sony, and Huawei devices, and a generic one for the rest. It’s required regardless of whether you switch from Android to iPhone, or vice versa.
  • Check the storage status. It’s displayed at each phone image in the application window. If you have a lot of videos and photos in your WhatsApp backup, you better make sure the receiving device has enough free space to accept it.
  • TransApp works with other messengers as well – not only with WhatsApp, but with Line, Kik, Viber, and maybe others. The list will probably grow.
  • You can also use TransApp to make local backups if you don’t trust clouds. Just don’t forget to update it regularly. Backup and restore tools are available from a special menu.
  • AppTrans is an app installer at the same time. You can install apps from third-party sources right from your PC or Mac, to avoid storing junk on your smartphone.

Pre-Download Genshin Impact 1.6 to Save Time When It’s Out

One of the most influential RPGs of the decade, Genshin Impact receives an update soon. The 1.6 version is to be active on June 9. But, given the popularity of the game, one can expect some server downtime on the update day. To prevent that, the developers made it available for pre-downloading. So, when the update rolls out, you will just need to activate your updated version.

The name of the update is “Midsummer Island Adventure”, and it implies a new location for the game. Along with a new location, it will feature new summer outfits for Jean and Barbara, discounted for a limited time. Of course, you can’t expect it to be all rainbows and unicorns: the island will have its share of dangers and villains. On the other hand, there will be another playable five-star character named Kaedehara Kazuha, with a sword and Anema power. The update will also bring some bug fixes and performance improvements.

Alas, pre-downloading is not available for those playing Genshin Impact on PlayStation (regardless of the generation). They will have to wait until the day and download the full volume. But if you play Genshin Impact on PC, iOS, or Android, you can start pre-downloading it now. The sooner you will enjoy the new adventure when it’s released.
