GTA V iFruit Companion App Released

Unless you got an early copy of GTA V from Amazon, you can while away the next nine hours by playing the official iOS companion app, which lets you create custom numberplates and customise vehicles for use in the game. And put in some time with Franklin's virtual dog.

iFruit, available now from the App Store (for free), is designed to give you a head start on Grand Theft Auto V's campaign. Lampooning Apple products and the in-game iFruit smartphones, the application includes the ability to reserve custom numberplates for use in the story campaign and GTA Online, as well as customising vehicles to use in-game. Simply make a custom car, then export it to your garage.

The Chop The Dog minigame presents an anarchic take on virtual pets, letting you spend quality time with Franklin's pooch. You know, feeding him, walking him, teaching him to run away with sunbathers' bikinis - the usual. However, playing iFruit will affect Chop's personality in GTA V, making him more helpful, responsive, versatile and capable of finding hidden items.

GTA V releases tomorrow, and apparently it's half-decent according to early reviews. Probably worth a punt if you're a fan of the genre. Also, erm, I think I feel a cold coming on *sniffle*. Better not turn up to the office tomorrow, just to be sure.

Remember, folks, you can win a copy of GTA V this evening from 6PM by following our Twitter competition!

There's no comment box on the GTA competition thread, so I'll post here...

"Individual question contests will last an hour, after which four winners with the correct answer will be chosen at random for each question..."
Should presumably be three winners not four. (Probably copy/pasted from an earlier competition.)
Speaking of competitions, you've not announced the winner of the last one yet...

And if you are going to ask a question in Engrish, please do it right ;)

iFruit has finally released on android. Way to go, Rockstar, only a month and a half delay... :rolleyes:

Okay, I get that it's a bit cr-app, so not a big deal - but it's still annoying that ios got it over six weeks before android. Good luck getting the "vanity plates" you want for your car.

Also it doesn't seem to be compatible with my phone, which is rather frustrating. It's not the fanciest of phones but it's no slouch either (Motorola Razr i XT890 running 4.1.2)
Will give it a whirl on the Nexus 7 tonight.
