Car wreck? There’s an app for that!

Posted on January 6th, 2010 by Joe Weast

Finding a body shop is going high tech!

Several insurance companies already have iPhone apps out for their clients – including Nationwide and Geico – to assist them after an accident. Some of the assistance is locating a body shop, getting a tow truck, and general advice on what to do at the scene of the accident. We can count on all the major carriers having their own apps in the very near future. I recently downloaded one called iWreck that at first glance seems to work really well. I especially like the functionality of being able to call a local tow truck or 911 with the push of a button. Seems like that could come in really handy especially for teenage drivers who are really tech savvy but may be unsure what to do after an accident.

iWrecked is getting good reviews. Check it out for yourself here.
