Unhappy IPhone Help

Long story short I went from a Samsung Galaxy Note Edge to an Iphone 7. I need good apps to help me with the switch, and yes I've checked the app market but seen a lot of sweet and sour reviews. I don't mind paying for apps either

1.I need an app that will allow me to transfer my data over from Android to IOS since I can't swap SD Cards. I've been playing Dan The Man for a while and don't want to start over. Its actually a pretty good game.

2. I need a keyboard app that allows Swype

3. A good app to allow me to hide my photos (not using the cloud) There was a hidden calculator app that I liked I remember that app from years ago. Is it any good?

4. Can a stylus be used with this phone? I thought I could go with out it but I miss the stylus with a swype keyboard.

5. Looking for a good music app as well. I hear a lot of Apple users use Itunes so I might just go with that.

"I don't know who you noobs are. I don't know what you noobs want. If you are looking for attention, I can tell you I don't have a long span. But, what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very large amount of posts. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you drop this now, that'll be the end of it. I will not Google you, I will not photochop you. But if you don't, I will search the webnets for you, I will find you, and I will pwn you."

#1: Apple has an app for moving data. It involves putting their app on your Android thingie so it can suck the life force from it. Details here.
#2: Swype is in the App Store for 99¢, and several alternatives are in the "users also looked at..." listing on the Swype page.
#3: No app needed! It's a native feature. Click me! Click me!
#4: Any capacitive stylus should work, though iPhone isn't optimized or tested for a stylus. A search of "iPhone stylus" in Amazon will pull up lots of choices.
#5: Is a "good music app" one that plays "good music"? What is "good"? iOS has a native music app (named "Music." Go figure.) that allows for your own music library as well as an Apple Music subscription. The Music app is designed to sync with iTunes on your computer. iTunes has its flaws, but it will move your personal music files/podcasts/videos/apps/etc. to and fro. And it's a free download.

All I ask is a Hinckley triple
And a road to steer her by.

1. Awesome thanks lol
2. I saw a couple of apps but with all the sweet and sour reviews I wasn't sure which one actually worked like Android swype and which one would just keep force closing.
3. Yup tried that when I 1st got the phone. All that does is move it to a folder called "Hidden Photos" that is easily accessible by anyone. I need something out of site and that is password protected.
4. I wasn't sure if the phone was Stylus capable or not or if I had to download an app for it to recognize a stylus. My Noted Edge's Stylus would work for some phones even tablets, even the shop scan tool but not everything.
5. Good as in has old music as well as new music. Underground music and Artist as well not just mainstream. EX. I will look up Reggae I will instantly get Bob Marley or Beenie Man. There are other Artist like Buju Banton, Lady Saw, Vybz Kartel that will not show up.

Also good as in being able to be transferred to any device. I want to be able to back up my music on my PC and transfer it to any device. The only issue I have with Itunes (correct me if I am wrong) is that it is only for Apple Products. If I wanted to buy a generic music player just to have for my motorcycle I want to be able to put my music on that.

The reason why I won't just try a bunch of apps and delete them if they don't work is because that takes up space. I never learned how to completely remove an app from my phone, so they have always left data on my phone just incase I wanted to download the same app again. I would go into the app delete all the cache, saved data ect and force close the app before deleting it.
I've only had this phone 2 weeks, I'm still playing around with options and learning.

Before going further, are you anywhere near an Apple Store? They offer walk-in support for the life of the product, free. Doesn't matter if you're the original purchaser or not or where you bought it. Go here to get the ball rolling.

3. Photo vault is a nice simple app for protecting photos. I'm sure there are others but that's the one I use. Two pins possible - one for normal hidden photos and one for really hidden. For those time where your SO knows what pin you use I guess!

Apple stores are full of app guru's I'd go there first. They probably even have a stylus you can use with that phone.
