The New Jersey carrier is offering maintenance records, mechanic information and accident support through the mobile platform.

High Point Auto Insurance, a Red Bank, N.J.-based carrier that provides services in the Garden State, has launched an application for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Available for free from the iTunes store and at the company's Web site, the app allows policyholders to access car maintenance records, upload photos in case of an accident, send reports to the claims department and find preferred mechanics.
