Transfer Google Services from regular Google Account to Google Apps account


So Google announced that Google Apps account can start to transition to be used for other Google services such as Blogger, Picasa and Google Reader.
This my experiences so far trying to consolidate all my information in the Google Apps account.

Google Reader
Transfering to Google Reader for the Google Apps account is very easy. Just log in with the old Google account and go to "Settings -> Reader Settings -> Import/Export". From there I can export all the feeds to an OPML file.
Then log out and log in again with the Google Apps account and again go to "Settings -> Reader Settings -> Import/Export" and then Import the OPML file. All your subscriptions are now available for the Google Apps account.

Blogger
This is also fairly easy. Login with your old Google account. Go to "Settings->Permissions" and add your Google Apps account as author. Then check the inbox for the Google Apps account and accept to become an author. The log out and log in with the Google account and make the Google Apps account administrator under "Settings->Permissions".
When you log in with your Google Apps account again your are able to remove the Google account as author as well.

AdSense
This account you apparently cannot transfer. If you don't have much unpaid in that account you could probably create a new account for your pages.

Edit: It turns out that Google off course already documented how to transfer data between accounts: Moving product data : Managing and using Google products - Accounts Help
