Work Comp Apps On iTunes – Only Two?


Work Comp Apps On iTunes – Two Will Not Do

The Work Comp Apps on iTunes were actually astounding.  I had thought the Android – Google Store was bereft of apps until I visited the iTunes store.

After browsing the store for 30 minutes, I came to the conclusion there were only two iTunes apps.  These two were also found in the Google Store.

I decided earlier this week to browse for Work Comp apps on iTunes after receiving two emails from readers in response to my articles on the yearly search for Android apps.

The two emails had the same theme – Android sucks, buy an iPhone.   As the only saying goes, one is an outlier, two could be a trend.   After taking the advice of the emails, I found only these two Workers Comp apps for iPhones.

One was the NCCI coverage app mentioned last week in the Android apps.   The other one was a premium calculator of sorts.   The NCCI coverage app was free of charge.  The premium calculator costs $29.99.

I am hoping that I have made a mistake and not located all the IPhone or Apple Store Apps on WC.  If there are more WC apps, please email me so that I can point them out to the blog and newsletter readers.

As I mentioned in earlier posts, even if a company has an app they provide their client, why not place them on the Google or Apple Store listings to receive free advertising?

Producing an app is an easy way for a company to promote itself as being ahead of the tech-curve in WC.  I linked to and mentioned NCCI often as they have apps in both stores – free of charge.

Hopefully, when I review the Work Comp apps on ITunes next year, I will have more subject matter.
