It sure is good to see some of these bigger companies starting to port their apps over from the iPhone and share some love with Android, and now State Farm wants to be a good neighbor too with the release of Pocket Agent for Android. The app makes it easy to report an accident and file an insurance claim right from the scene.
Some of what you can expect:
Submit a Claim – fill out a claims checklist with the push of a button.
Take and submit pictures using your camera and record accident details and vehicle damage.
My Insurance Card – Can’t find your insurance card? Now your policy information is at your fingertips!
My Agent – Contact your State Farm agent or find one close-by.
On The Road – Search for hotels, gas stations, tow trucks, taxis, locksmiths, and rental cars by current location or zip code
Locate a State FarmŽ Select ServiceŽ Repair Facility
Search for State Farm agents by current location or zip code
Other claimants and other vehicles – This feature adds sections on the claim form for the other parties involved in the accident, including name, insurance information and vehicle information.
We can only hope that this is the sort of app you wouldn’t have to use very often (for reporting an accident, anyway), but it sure makes it a heck of a lot easier if you have to. Being linked in to local State Farm agents and helpful area services doesn’t hurt either.
