As an Android user, you may know well that you can transfer data from Samsung Galaxy, Sony Xperia, Google Nexus, LG, etc. to HTC One through Bluetooth or just connect the phones to the computer and directly drag and drop the content from one to another. However, if you switch your iPhone 4S to HTC One, to transfer the data from iOS device to Android is not that straightforward and simple in most cases.

To make the data transfer from both Android and iOS mobile devices to HTC smartphones easier and more convenient, HTC Inc. released HTC Sync Manager and HTC Transfer Tool. Both of them are free programs. HTC Sync Manager supports users to back up and restore data in HTC and transfer files in between HTC and iOS or computer. HTC Transfer Tool enables users to share data among Android phones. In the below passage, we'll concentrate on how to transfer iPhone data and Android data to HTC One.

HTC Sync Manager as well as HTC Transfer Tool is very convenient and simple to use. But when you use the Sync Manager software to transfer iTunes backup to HTC mobile phone, you may find the program doesn't work all the time. And the data may not complete transferred either. Or if you want to transfer other data like Apps from Android to HTC, Transfer Tool yet can satisfy your demand. In these cases, we sincerely suggest you to give a shot to Phone Transfer, a more reliable and powerful program, specializes in backing up and retrieving, transferring and erasing data on devices running different OS system.
