Which way to choose?
Virtually all of the above methods of transferring apps on Android 11 are similar to each other. There are other applications, but functionally they hardly differ from each other.
If there aren’t enough programs on your smartphone, APK Extractor or even a library from Google Play will do. Users who have a lot of applications or games would be better served by Google Backup or ES Explorer. They can be used to move programs all at once instead of one by one.
How to transfer the calendar from Android to Android
The previous method also works for the calendar. Google has provided the ability to synchronize this application as well. You can move your calendar from Android to Android with third-party apps, but we don’t recommend it. Google’s built-in tools are more convenient and secure.
As we wrote at the beginning of the article, modern versions of Android provide a wide range of tools for backing up and restoring all important data. Google account alone allows you to store backups in the cloud:
- apps installed on your smartphone;
- photos and videos;
- SMS messages;
- call logs;
- device settings;
- You can export your Google Account data (calendar, documents, spreadsheets, contacts, and so on) at any time.д.).
That is, in fact, the user does not need any third-party programs or applications. The exceptions are those rare cases when you have a very old phone based on those versions of Android, which do not yet offer such extensive options for backup and recovery. In these cases you can turn to third-party programs such as SHAREit, CLONEit and others.
There are many unforeseen bugs and errors that you might encounter when installing third party software. After all, in most cases you have to put up with annoying ads, so we recommend using official data backup tools. Fortunately, their capabilities are more than enough for most users. That’s all, thank you for your attention and see you soon!
SHAREit. a program for transferring information to another smartphone
SHAREit is a handy application that allows you to transfer information between Android devices. Download it from Google Play on both phones and do the following

The transfer will start automatically. Once the actions are completed, all the necessary information will appear in the memory of the new phone.
Now you know how to transfer all the data to the new smartphone. When deciding how to transfer, pay attention to the total amount of information. If the data weighs less than 1-2GB, it’s easier to do over the wireless network. If you have 5-10GB of data, we recommend connecting your smartphone to your PC via USB to save time.
