SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - People heading to the Illinois State Fair when it opens next week may want to download a new mobile phone app.

State fair manager Kevin Gordon announced the application Tuesday in a news release. The free app gives fairgoers access to deals and discounts on the fairgrounds and the ability to buy tickets to concerts and other events.

It will take users on a self-guided tour of agriculture destinations on the fairgrounds.

The app includes tools such as a food finder, a daily schedule of events and a list of all the winners from competitions held at the fair.

The app is available in the Google Play store for Android devices and the iTunes App Store for Apple devices.

The Illinois State Fair runs Aug. 11 through Aug. 21.
