'Grand Theft Auto V' App Now Available

Posted Mon Sep 16, 2013 at 07:30 AM PDT by

Customize a ride, and train the dog for use in the game.

In typical Rockstar fashion, the new 'Grand Theft Auto: iFruit' app manages to poke fun at whole idea of a important multifunction app, while still be connected enough to 'Grand Theft Auto V' to be worth checking out.

From iTunes, "How would we survive without apps? Apps can transform your mobile device into essential tools like a harmonica, disco ball or convincing moustache. Somewhere out there is the perfect storm of touchscreen technology to fix everything that’s wrong with your life. And maybe all you’re missing is the iFruit app. Maybe not. At least you’ll have something to keep you entertained while your significant other prattles on endlessly about their day.

iFruit hooks directly into your experience of Grand Theft Auto V with some fun activities to further postpone the need for real social interaction. Keep up-to-date on the latest Grand Theft Auto V news, log into the Rockstar Games Social Club, stay connected on LifeInvader and launch other Rockstar Games apps."

The two main features that correlate with 'GTA V' are the Los Santos Customs and Chop the Dog. While the Los Santos features allows the player to create a vanity license plate, assemble a custom ride, training Chop the Dog will get the dog to "sniff out the nearest hidden items when the player takes him for a walk" in 'GTA V.' The app ties into the PS3 or 360 versions of 'GTA V' through the Rockstar Social Club. The app is available now for free for both the iPhone and iPad.
