    I swapped from Android to iPhone a while back but have now "seen the light" and bought a Galaxy S5. I set up a new Google account but now I need to retrieve some apps I had on my old phone. I can't access the old acct from my new phone as it automatically logs in with the new one. Is there any way I can download from the old acct onto my new phone? tudogz.:thinking:

    go into settings/accounts and release that account

    now log into your old google account, get what you want and then log out.

    been there, done that.

    My wife has a Google account her phone obviously. I have also attached my Google account to her phone via settings》accounts, because I pay for all the apps on my Google account in Play Store... So after you have set up a second account on the phone you can then going to play store and switch between accounts.
