Having eviscerated Facebook, Rockstar's turned its satirical eye upon Apple and the iTunes Store. Available free to iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad users running iOS 4.3, the "iFruit" app allows you to pimp out an in-game ride while you're away from your console, and unlock new behaviours and items for Franklin's dog Chop by interacting with a Tamagotchi version of the animal.... read more

Still bugs me that Android, the largest smartphone market share, gets none of these apps. I've missed out on stuff for Injustice and now GTA V, because I'm not a fan of Apple.

At least SmartGlass is on Android.

this app was a great idea however with a £160 million budget and 5 years of development for GTAV i would have expected to at least be able to sign in to the companion app, the mini game with the dog is temperamental with little thought gone into its development. I would have expected much more from Rockstars app

i started reading this thinking it was for my phone in game not out game, i dont buy in to these new phones as i couldn't care less about these unentertaining repetative short games when i could just just have a console and play big games that have had time and effort put in to them, i hate how you need to purchase every new gadget doomed to break as soon as the really expensive warranty runs out just to get the most out a game that iv already spent a ruck of cash on!

We all form a big circle with you in the middle and then point and laugh :wink:

Seriously though I've got a smart phone and I've given up with these add ons. They are never very good, and hardly ever have any sort of impact on the main game so you aren't really missing out on anything.

You're really not missing much. It's not like you're missing out an important piece of the puzzle. But it's also free so there can't really be any complaints about what it does or doesn't do. I've only used it for training my dog so far

As most of the world is unable to log in, I don't think you are missing anything at all! :evil:

It would be better if the app actually linked up to the game as is supposed to, 1. I've not got my custom number plate 2. No re spray for the cars either 3. Chop is supposed to get a collar which I chose in the app for in the game but that's also a fail.
I don't know what's going on. GTAV itself though is the best GTA ever, obviously!
