SPRINGFIELD — College-bound students might check out a new, free smartphone app designed to help them plan, prepare and pay for college.

The Illinois Student Assistance Commission this week launched its B4College app, which can send students personalized notices, including reminders about student aid application deadlines.

The app currently is available for Android smartphones at Google Play. A Facebook account is required to use the app.

The commission expects to launch an iPhone version in early summer.

For more information, including a link to Google Play, see the commission's website www.isac.org.
