    Im going to IOS coming from a S7... Can I backup my whatsapp chat from android to IOS, there is a free program for this ??

    And I love the Swiftkey, in IOS the Swiftkey works fine?? Or the default ios keyboard is better??

    Thanks for the help and sorry for my bad english...Im from Brazil.

    I have used Swiftkey and it was alright but I actually prefer Word Flow. I typically just use the iOS keyboard anymore though.

    If you use your old phone number in WhatsApp it should ask you to download your chat history I believe. I seem to recall doing that when I put it on my phone at least. You may have to back it up on the old device first. I can't remember but check the settings to see if there's an email or backup of some sort in there now. It's been forever since I switched back to iOS.

    I suggest using Gboard for iOS instead of Swiftkey. Btw neither have long press for alternate characters in iOS which sucks.
    I believe Whatsapp has a built in backup feature. Just download the iOS migration app on Android and you should able to migrate some stuff.
