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.
Users are able to view state events, find information about state agencies and have access to the state phone directory.

Sharing App via text, email, Facebook, Twitter and Airdrop.
