Work Comp Apps – How Many Exist
My last foray into the Work Comp Apps for Android was very frustrating yet indicative of the minimal innovation/technology in this industry.
The last attempt to find any useful apps in WC world ended up with a few that were not disguised attorney ads or a banner for a company.
I decided to go down the rabbit hole on my own in April 2014.
The three articles that were produced from that trip were:
Please remember that there were no searches of IOS apps, just Android in April 2014 and now.
The number of Android apps has surprisingly not changed that much overall. There were 150 apps that one could say were WC apps. Somehow there are a few anime apps mixed in- and I will not go there.
If you want to come with me down the rabbit hole, just click here for the Work Comp apps . Welcome to the search for apps in the Google Play store. The apps that I thought were even remotely related to WC were:

I downloaded these apps to my Google Nexus 4 phone. Wi-Fi was turned on so that I would not use up my monthly data allocation.
Almost all require a username and password which may prevent me from testing them fully. Check back in tomorrow when I take the harrowing journey of trying to use Android work comp apps.
If you know of any others apps that I missed please let me know. As you can see there are many major WC companies that have no Android Apps.
Should I buy an Apple product to check them out? By the way, all companies mentioned reserve their copyrights and patents. I am not going to go through each one.
