Workers Compensation Apps Google Play Store Has 177 – Few Helpful


Google Play Store Has 177 Workers Compensation Apps

I have owned a Google Nexus 4 phone for approximately one year.  There are so many apps to choose from for most of what I need that the experience is similar to car-shopping.   While I was in the Google Play store (never liked that name) I thought I would perform a search for Android Workers Compensation apps.

There are 177 apps on the results screen.  Many are from plaintiff attorneys from across the nation.  I am going to trudge through the apps to see if any are that helpful.   If anyone reading this article knows of a great app for Workers Comp, please feel free to post a reply, or email me.

I will provide updates as I eliminate any of the 177 that do not belong there.  I see that are a few anime apps that are beyond me why they would show up in the search results.

My first one that I thought would be interesting was an app on Experience Mods (E-Mods/X-Mods).  It did not work whatsoever.  I had to remove it from my phone.

BTW- the most useful overall apps I have found are:

  • The Weather Channel 
  • Amazon Kindle 
  • Audible
  • Avast! Mobile Security
  • SwiftKey
  • Android Assistant
  • QuickOffice
  • Google Maps
  • Google Chrome

Hopefully, there will soon be more providers of Workers Compensation apps in the near future.

2019 Update – I have received a few emails with explanations on why not as man apps show up in the Play Store searches.   Website-based apps became more popular in 2018 – 2019.   The need to provide an app shrank over the last two years.

Smartphones became powerful enough to not require an app to provide the necessary information online.  Most phone can handled Microsoft Edge, Firefox, and Chrome without having to resort to an app.   In other words, smartphones replaced computers with the handling of online workers compensation apps.
