check if phone is visible to adb : adb devices
commands:

adb backup -apk com.mobeam.beepngo ( watch for question popups on phone and answer them, if your phone is encrypted it will ask for a password (use simple password like the letter 'a' . This command will create a file backup.ab in the current folder)

[the previous command should have backed up the apk as well. However on my phone this did not work so we need some more steps to copy the apk too:]
adb shell
pm list packages -f | grep mobeam
will show the path where the application is stored (in my case:
package:/data/app/com.mobeam.beepngo-2/base.apk=com.mobeam.beepngo )

copy the apk to a folder which is visible on PC:
cp /data/app/com.mobeam.beepngo-2/base.apk /storage/self.primary/Download/beepngo.apk
exit
(you are back at the normal cmd window prompt, don't close the window yet)

Now on PC open windows explorere, navigate to your phone devices Download folder and copy beepngo.apk to a folder on PC
Disconnect old phone

on new phone: enable USB debug option in developer options
Connect new phone (watch for question popups on phone and answer them)
Copy beepngo.apk to the Downloads folder of the new phone
On phone use file manager, navigate to Downloads folder and run the beepngo.apk to install beepngo

On PC go to the command window:
check if new phone is visible to adb : adb devices
adb restore backup.ab (this will restore the beepngo files, watch for popups on your phone and answer quesitons. if you had to enter a password for encryption, please enter the same password again )

Start beepngo and the data from previous phone is visible

Are you sure that you have the latest version of MoBeam? I tested it on the latest version.
What does these command give as output?

adb shell
pm list packages -f | grep mobeam

Do you think it would be possible to export the database to another format so to import into let's say Samsung Pay?
