Apple released its first-ever Android app in Google’s Play store on Wednesday, and Android users went to town writing negative reviews for it.

Apple’s Android app is called Move to iOS and it’s designed to help Android users transfer their data to a new iPhone.

There are 4,280 reviews so far, 3306 of which have a one-star rating for an average of 1.8 stars.

It has an overall rating of 3.5 stars out of five from 470131 reviews.
