There are dozens of insurance apps out there from coverage providers, but 'Cover' is one that operates much differently than the rest.

Cover promises to provide "insurance in a snap!" and it does this by having its users take a photo of a pet, car, phone, vehicle or property that they want to insure. After a photo and a category have been submitted, Cover gets to work in order to source the lowest coverage rates with companies like Allstate, GEICO, Progressive and more.

There are many Millennials who are reluctant to invest in home, rental or car insurance, but an app like Cover plays to their love of smartphones and a desire for immediacy by cutting out the need to shop around for the best rates.
