Apple ITunes Store Apps – Another Workers Comp Rabbit Hole Trip


Apple ITunes Store Apps Barren Territory For Workers Comp

The Apple ITunes Store Apps for Workers Comp search resulted from my yearly search for Google PlayStore Apps.

The names  ITunes and Playstore do not bolster my confidence in finding any business apps.  I also checked them on my semi-smartphone to see if my search outcomes would have changed the results.

Unfortunately, the app results did not improve.  My Google PlayStore 2018 results can be found here.

Workers Compensation showed little results. Workers Comp as a search term was a little better.    Hey, who knew three rap artists made songs and  two albums with the name Workers Comp.  Results can be found here.

A few books and podcasts are available for purchase.  One noticeable attribute that differs between the PlayStore and the Itunes  Apps is the availability or more free apps in the Playstore.

Advantage Healthcare Systems possessed the best Itunes app.  Their Workers Comp medical terminology app was also offered in the PlayStore selections.   A Texas Worker Comp attorney also provided a free information apps.     There were hundreds of those in Google PlayStore.

Overall, one has to ask why more Google Android Apps were developed than Apple ITune Store Apps?   The development costs might have been a very large factor.

In fact,more Android Apps existed in the prior year searches.  ITunes had about the same number as 2017.   Once again, many Workers Comp providers have their own Apps available – for example if an employer has a TPA (Third Party Administrator) arrangement, the TPA’s software will usually allow limited smartphone access.

Then again, the number of even direct app providers may have shrunk as did the number of apps in the two big smartphone app stores.

Hopefully, 2019 will show better results.   The circumference of the rabbit hole is shrinking, yet becoming deeper to crawl into for apps.

If you know of any Google Playstore or  Apple ITunes  stor apps that I have not mentioned, please comment below or send an email over with a link to that app.
