“Grand Theft Auto V” is just a day away from releasing everywhere and Rockstar has already revealed the companion app for the game, “Grand Theft Auto V: the iFruit.” The app is currently available at the App Store and functions as a way for players to get the latest GTA news, check out what’s going on with the Rockstar Games Social Club, and also let you remotely influence goings-on in your copy of GTA V. Unfortunately, there’s no word on an Android version.
Using the iFruit, you can create your ultimate vehicle in the game; from paint jobs, window tints, smoke colours, wheels, hoods and spoilers, you’ll be able to manufacture the car of your dreams and then place an order. The next time you play “Grand Theft Auto V,” you’ll find your customised set of wheels waiting in your garage. You’ll also be able to use the app when playing, and create custom license plates for use in GTA V and GTA Online.
In case you also have parental instincts that aren’t being satisfied by your real life children, pet, or online Neopet, the iFruit will also include Tamagotchi-esque gameplay in which you remotely look after Chop, a dog belonging to one of Franklin’s friends. You’ll be able pet and feed him, as well as play games and teach him tricks, all of which will help you unlock rewards in GTA V. Keeping your puppy positive will result in him being more responsive in the main game, as well as sniff out hidden items on walks. You can even earn credits to buy him bespoke collars.
With the companion app, you never have to be out of reach of “Grand Theft Auto V,” so say goodbye to pesky distractions like eating, bathroom breaks, and work.
