Illinois accelerates mobile app delivery

Residents of Illinois will get mobile access to popular services, thanks to the state’s Going Mobile initiative, which will release a new app each month.

To jump-start the program, the Illinois Department of Innovation and Technology released four new apps:

  • ILocate aims to help citizens find state agencies in selected areas of the state
  • A DoIT app provides services and ordering capabilities for technology solutions
  • A new app for the state fair provides event information for the annual fair.
  • A revised version of the Student Mobile Portal app will help prospective and future college students navigate the college planning process from finding a school to figuring our funds.

“These apps provide easy to use solutions for citizens and state employees alike, for tools such as event participation, business and personal license access and renewals, and government services information,” Illinois CIO Hardik Bhatt said.
