FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NAIC LAUNCHES ANDROID
HOME INVENTORY APP
Enhanced iPhone Version Also Available

WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 25, 2011) — The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) has launched an Android version of its popular myHOME Scr.APP.book app. Available now in the Android Marketplace, this version was developed as a result of strong consumer interest in the iPhone® version of the application, launched in March.

Like the iPhone® app, the Android version allows users to create a home inventory to make sure their possessions are fully documented and protected. The free app lets users quickly photograph and capture images, descriptions and serial numbers, and stores the information electronically for safekeeping. The app organizes everything by room and category, and creates a back-up file for e-mail sharing.

The original iPhone® app has also undergone several notable enhancements. In response to user feedback, the upgrades include performance enhancements and improved management of photos. In addition, users can now create an archive through a PDF or e-book of their home inventory that includes photos and descriptions.

"Mobile devices and applications are significantly expanding consumer access to time-saving and possibly life-saving tools. Pocket-sized technology is also helping us reach younger consumers, in addition to those who now have more affordable access to the Internet and Web-based services," said Susan E. Voss, NAIC President and Iowa Insurance Commissioner. "We are pleased to broaden our resources for consumers who want a convenient tool to document their possessions."

The myHOME Scr.APP.book app is available through iTunes® and the Android Marketplace or use the links below.
