The iFruit for Android app is now available for most Android smartphones and tablets in the Google Play store, offering a smartphone companion app for GTA 5 and GTA Online.
The GTA Android app comes weeks after the game arrived, and after many gamers beat the game, which is a sore spot mentioned in reviews of the app on Google Play.
The GTA 5 Manual for Android arrived on October 11th, but iFruit for Android did not show up until this afternoon. The app is free in the Google Play store and available for installation today. Users will need a Rockstar Social Club account to take advantage of the features which link to GTA 5.
The iFruit Android app offers two main functions that connect to the GTA 5 game, one of which may annoy users who are not used to notifications asking them to play with a dog.
With the Los Santos Customs section of the app users can create a custom license plate for their ride and customize the car. The license plates are available in story mode and in GTA Online. With this part of the app gamers can also customize their in-game car. Here’s a look at the options available in the iFruit Android app;
- paint jobs
- window tints
- smoke colors
- upgrade your engine
- accessorize with new lights
- body armor
The app will deliver the car when you boot up GTA 5 the next time, or if you use it while you are playing the mechanic will call you in-game when it is available to pick up.
The iFruit Android app also lets users train Chop the Dog. This is the in-game dog that Franklin adopts and users must take care of in order to find hidden items and other features. This part of the app will push notifications to play with Chop, which many users may not want interrupting their workday. If you choose to use the Chop part of the iFruit app here are all the benefits.
- 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
Rockstar still promises iFruit for Windows Phone, Playstation Vita and PlayStation Mobile.
