A new patent has surfaced allegedly under Samsung’s name. The document seems to highlight the ability to migrate any home screen layout from one Android smartphone to another. Until now, only third party apps allowed this feature.
With the existence of this capability in your Android phone, users would save the trouble of re-installing all apps when they switch to a new smartphone. You wouldn’t have to deal with a brand new and unfamiliar look with the smartphone, you can just migrate the old one into it.
The best part of the feature is that the patent dictates that you wouldn’t need to be in physical distance for it to work. It’s not like NFC where the smartphones need to be touching or even in the same room. The migration feature works over cloud!
