Rockstar Games has finally made the GTA 5 iFruit app available to Android devices.
Originally the iFruit app was only available on iOS devices, much to the irritation of GTA 5 gamers wielding an Android device rather than the Apple alternative.
“iFruit hooks directly into your experience of Grand Theft Auto V with some fun activities to further postpone the need for real social interaction. Keep up-to-date on the latest Grand Theft Auto V news, log into the Rockstar Games Social Club, stay connected on LifeInvader and launch other Rockstar Apps,” explains Rockstar.
You’ll be able to remotely look after Franklin’s dog Chop using the iFruit app.
“Look after him well in the ‘Chop the Dog’ app and you will reap the benefits when playing as Franklin in Grand Theft Auto V. Pet him, feed and water him, play fetch and tug-of-war, teach him tricks. Too much or too little of an activity, however, will cause Chop to become unhappy, and nobody like an unhappy Rottweiler.”
The app also requires you to take Chop for a walk, which is done through a range of three mini games.
The second part of the app is the vehicle customisation function. You’ll be able to pimp your rise with paint jobs, brakes, exhausts and more.
“The Los Santos Customs app offer players the freedom to create their ultimate vehicle in Grand Theft Auto V from anywhere. At the bar, on the beach, on the toilet. This is the future, we’re almost sure of it.”
The GTA 5 iFruit is a free download from the Google Play Store and is compatible with devices running Android 3.0 or higher.
