Rockstar Releases 'iFruit' Companion App for 'Grand Theft Auto V'

Ahead of tomorrow's Grand Theft Auto V launch, Rockstar has released a companion app for the game, Grand Theft Auto: iFruit (via TouchArcade). Though the name of the app is a parody on Apple devices, it provides a number of helpful in-game features, including allowing users to create and customize vehicles that will then be available in the game.

Customization options for cars include paint jobs, window tints, smoke colors, wheels, hoods, and spoilers. Engines, brakes, exhaust, and suspension can be upgraded, and there are even customized license plates available in the online portion of the game.

The Los Santos Customs app offers players the freedom to create their ultimate vehicle in Grand Theft Auto V from anywhere. At the bar, on the beach, on the toilet. This is the future, we’re almost sure of it.
Gamers can also use the iFruit app to access options for caring for Chop the Dog, an in-game sidekick in GTA V. Though a virtual pet system, the app provides in-game benefits that cause Chop to be more helpful, performing tricks, and locating hidden items.

Depth of content, high production values, defecation. It's the app that has it all. Because who doesn’t love tending to a virtual pet? Chop is Franklin’s canine sidekick in Grand Theft Auto V. Look after him well in the "Chop the Dog" app and you will reap the benefits when playing as Franklin in Grand Theft Auto V. Pet him, feed and water him, play fetch and tug-of-war, teach him tricks.
In addition to providing customization options and access to Chop the Dog, iFruit offers GTA V news, access to the Rockstar Games Social Club, and links to other Rockstar Games apps.

Grand Theft Auto: iFruit can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link] Grand Theft Auto V will launch on September 17 for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

If you knew anything about GTAV or Rockstar, you would know that the pc release always comes after the console release. It makes business sense.


The poster was referring to the original GTA games, there were GTA games before GTA III.

Although I would like to see it on PC I understand consoles have to come first nowadays. Bit like expecting Bungie to still make mac games first.

Obviously there were games in the GTA series before GTA III, but that third game launched the company and brand to incredible new heights.

Really? I thought they started at GTA III for giggles :rolleyes:

GTA III
Xbox & PS2 - October 2001
Windows - May 2002
Mac - November 2010

GTA Vice City
Xbox & PS2 - October 2002
Windows - May 2003
Mac - November 2010

GTA San Andreas
Xbox & PS2 - October 2004
Windows - June 2005
Mac - November 2010

GTA IV
Xbox 360 & PS3 - April 2008
Windows - December 2008
Mac - None

See the obvious pattern that any GTA fan would know about?

There is a 7-8 month gap between console releases and Windows release - and there has been for over 10 years. It's nothing new. Rockstar are not 'snubbing' or ignoring PC users at all, despite what some ill informed people keep banging on about.

No android support? Shocker.


There is android support, the app is just delayed.

Think you need to chill out, I was only pointing out what bengst meant. Some PC gamers have been complaining about it since GTA III. It is nothing new, I'm sure someone will complain about it when GTA6 is released.

Back OT: This looks like a surprisingly good app can't wait to try it with the GTAV.
