If you have a smartphone, you are probably aware that there is an app for everything—and we mean, everything! There are apps for games, apps for dating, apps for fitness, apps for banking—why not have an app for your insurance? Many prominent insurance companies have been asking that very same question, and have created some amazing solutions.

Mobile apps greatly improve the customer experience by providing help for both your everyday insurance questions and when a sudden need arises. For instance: smartphone users can do practically all of the claims process right from their app. You can also use the app to take shoot video and take pictures right at the site of an accident, which dramatically affects fraud protection. Many insurance apps allow you to access your ID card digitally, which can save time and stress. Here’s a quick rundown of a few of the coolest insurance apps out there:

CHUBB Personal Insurance

This app helps you collect information and submit it to the ChubbClaimsCenter, ensuring the quickest response to your claims!  It helps you submit photos of your vehicles damage and the accident scene, and connects you with Preferred Service Providers for towing, car rental, and repair services. It also links you to other Chubb resources. This app is available for the iPhone and iPad.

Travelers Insurance  

Getting into an accident is frightening, but with the Travelers insurance app you can be assured that you’re not alone. The app helps you create an accident report by giving you a step-by-step guide for collection information. Other features include:

  • Provides tips to help you keep calm
  • Allows you to photograph the damage
  • Automatically detects the accident time, date, and location
  • Allows you to send your report to any email address and submit your claim immediately
