    @AndyG after the export? it gives me a zip file. do I need to use mac to import it to my ios device?

    Update:sorry not a zip file.

    it gives me an xcodeproj. do I have to use xcode?

    You will therefore need to use the Android or Windows export and import facilities. However that is not my domain so I can not assist further.

    There are Android instructions on this page...

    Thanks for sharing this @heathclose. I actually have a Mac but it is really good to know there is a service like that.
