Rockstar has released an official iOS companion app today for the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V console title set for release tomorrow. The app, called Grand Theft Auto: iFruit, will let users stay up to date on the latest GTA news, launch other Rockstar Games apps, and sign in to the Rockstar Games Social Club. However, perhaps the most notable feature of the app is the ability to customize vehicles that will be used in the game:
Also choose from paint jobs, window tints, smoke colors, wheels, hoods and spoilers. Upgrade your engine, brakes, exhaust, suspension, and accessorize with new lights, horns, tires and body armor. Place your order on-the-go and find it waiting for you in the garage the next time you play Grand Theft Auto V, or send your order in while playing and get a call from your local mechanic to swing by. You can even create and reserve custom license plates for both Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online – order your personalized plates before they’re gone!
The app also includes “Chop the Dog”, a virtual pet game that can change the way Chop acts towards the character Franklin in the full console title:
Looking after Chop successfully is reflected in his behavior in Grand Theft Auto V in a number of ways:
•He will be more helpful and responsive to Franklin •He will perform tricks such as sitting, begging and giving paw if properly trained through the app •He will sniff out the nearest hidden items when the player takes him for a walk •Earn enough credits through walks and proper caretaking and exchange them for new collars for Chop
The free Grand Theft Auto: iFruit app is available on the App Store now. If you’re wondering about the name, ‘iFruit’ is what Rockstar calls iPhones in the GTA game world.
