The Nationwide Mobile app for iPhone features: Accident Tool Kit, Auto Claims, Find an Agent, Find a Participating Repair Shop, My Insurance Info and Flashlight. Combined, they make a comprehensive app that can deal with auto accidents and claims. The features of this app are exceptional if you are a Nationwide Insurance customer, giving you convenient access to your auto insurance information and claims history. For non-Nationwide customers, however, some of the best features are unavailable.
Accident Tool Kit - Just as the name implies, this is a kit to use at the scene of an accident. It has options to Call the Police, Exchange Driver Information, Record Accident Location (with GPS current location or manual option), Take Photos of Accident, Call for a Tow Truck, Start a Nationwide Auto Claim and Review Your Accident History. The accident tool kit is useful and convenient. Having been in an accident before, it would have been helpful to have a tool like this to help me get all the information I needed.
Auto Claims - Only available to customers of Nationwide Insurance, this tool stores your auto claims history.
Find an Agent - Finds a Nationwide Insurance Agent near you. The tool allows you to search using your current location or by an address, zip code or name.
Find a Participating Repair Shop - Allows you to locate a Nationwide Blue RibbonRepair Service Facility. These repair shops are Nationwide's preferred collision repair facilities that offer lifetime guarantee on all covered repairs. The tool allows you to search using your current location, by address or by zip code. You do not have to be a Nationwide Insurance customer to use this tool. It is a convenient way to search for a collision repair shop after an accident.
My Insurance Info - Only available to customers of Nationwide Insurance, this tool stores all your insurance information right on your phone. You must log in to your Nationwide Insurance account to access this feature. My Insurance Info would have been more helpful to a non-Nationwide customer if you could enter your own insurance information to be stored.
Flashlight - Turns your screen into a flashlight by displaying a bright white screen. This tool was probably included to be helpful for night time auto accidents. The flashlight feature does not offer much light in a dark room, I found it to be useless.
