How to move your app from one device to another?

First of all please understand that it's technically impossible to move Tap Fish game state between two different platforms; then your game state can't be moved from Apple device to Android device or vice versa. It's impossible because Apple and Android versions have completely different implementation, programming language, database schema and separate servers.

The best way to do is to request devs to do it. Read below how, and which data you will need to provide them to easy and quick moving of app.

- First of all install and open Tap Fish app in your new device
- go in menu->about tap fish->feedback. Your app will create email with all data of your new device which developers will need to proceed.
- add to this email IMEI (or MEID) of your old device and request your game state to be moved.
- CC this email to yourself (to be sure it was truly sent) and send it.
- now all that left is waiting they respond you and proceed with your request. Note that it might take few days (usually up to 5 working days) for developers to get till your email and can proceed with transfer of your data.

You can continue to play on your old device till they proceed with moving of your game state or download to your new device other version of Tap Fish that you was playing and feed your fishes trough neighbor's options. If despite that you find some floaters once game state transferred, please post your social ID on Facebook fan page, other players will proceed with reviving fishes for you.

Don't forget to change your social ID once your app is moved to new device by developers; new device = new social ID.

      The way described in this file is only way possible to get your game state moved. If you have no IMEI (or MEID, depending on device type) of your old phone - nothing can't be done. Game state can't be moved with social ID.

  2. i lost my old phone & i got a new one but now i want my fish on my new phone my name on it was yesenia1976 really need help

  3. I was given a used phone. I downloaded tap fish and played for months. I now have a new phone of my own and have transfered teh game. My problem is that it is on her apple ID not mine and I want the saved data transfered to my ID. I didn't know about the ids until it was too late.
