Mobile - INgov app
The State of Indiana offers a variety mobile apps to help citizens connect with government and find the services they need. The Indiana Office of Technology has developed several apps that are available for both iOS and Android. Below is a list of all the apps with links to download them.
Most apps are downloaded and quickly discarded after just a week or even a single-use. This can especially be the case when dealing with government apps, which typically are used seasonally or in one-off situations
The IN.gov app solves this problem by acting as a warehouse for all of the apps offered by the State of Indiana. When you need an app, just tap the screen and it downloads to your device. Along with the full catalog, it lists the most popular apps and allows the user to save his or her favorite apps, even if they are removed from the phone, for quick access.
Users can quickly contact the State via Live Chat directly from the App or reach State FAQs via the mobile-friendly platform that includes 200+ websites that are mobile compliant.
The maps utilize GPS to identify government services and attractions near the user’s current location. A simple slide feature allows the map to shrink or expand to help pinpoint locations. Additionally, the maps have different layers that include state offices, parks, beaches and historical sites. Access to Turn-by-turn navigation or calling to each location is turned on with the press of a finger.

PREVENTING INJURIES IN
The public health approach to prevention follows four main steps to prevent injuries and violence and minimize their consequences when they occur.
The target audience of this app includes, but is not limited to individuals and organizations concerned with preventing violence and injuries, such as healthcare professionals, public health professionals, trauma program managers and coordinators, care coordinators, injury prevention coordinators, social workers and case managers, and trauma medical directors.
By helping to incorporate what is known about injury prevention strategies into programs, practice, and policy, we can together help ensure Indiana remains safe and healthy. The intended use of this app is as a resource and reference to address the problem of injury at both the state and local level. The app also brings awareness to the problem of injury, focuses on data-driven decision making and evidence-based solutions, and identifies areas of opportunity in Indiana. This is the first edition of the app, with additional injury prevention topics and resources to be added.
REPORT HAZARDS INDIANA
Alert state authorities by sharing photos and text of severe weather, damage, major accidents, chemical spills and other activity that could help keep you and your neighbors safer.
Reports go to the Indiana Department of Homeland Security, state emergency management, Indiana State Fire Marshal, state emergency medical services and may be disseminated to other partners. DO NOT risk your safety to provide information.
INDIANA TRAVEL ADVISORY
The Indiana Travel Advisory app is meant to help users stay aware of changing travel conditions.
The State reports data provided by county Emergency Management Agencies (EMAs). Some counties only update data when there has been a change in status and do not reaffirm that everything is ‘Normal.’
For example, County X may not have had any travel emergencies since June and has remained in the ‘Normal’ category the entire time, since the status has not changed, there has been nothing to update. The next time there is a county-level emergency impacting travel, the status is changed by the county EMA and is reflected in the app.
The Migrant app is meant to help users request and receive migrant related services and information. Among some of the features:
This app provides migrant families with access to services provided by the migrant program in a timely manner
