Transferring apps from iPhone to Z2

Hello all.
I have a new Z2 and was told I could transfer my apps to it from my iPhone 5. I have been able to transfer all my other stuff, but the apps are a big fail. I have managed to transfer a couple of apps, but they are just the cheap/free ones, those I REALLY want are the expensive astronomy apps.
Is there anything I can do to get these across?
Thank you PH

For appliaction, if you wish to transfer. i think first you need to check if those application are abailable for android.


Base on my understanding, not all application are available for both platforms IOS and android.


If the developer of that specific application from IOS don't even support or build one for android, how are you gonna transfer the apps there and let it run?


Example, you couldn't use a motorcycle engine on a car right?

Further more,you won't be able to transfer apps fully.Like a backup,you won't be able to restore the app itself.You have to download them again.
