The lights are on
In short advance of tomorrow's launch of Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar has released a free iOS app that lets you customize your car, among other things.
Grand Theft Auto: iFruit lets you customize the look of your car as well as upgrade it courtesy of Los Santos Customs, and it will be waiting for you when you turn on the game. The app can be used to create and reserve custom license plates for GTA V and Grand Theft Auto Online.
It also contains Chop the Dog, where you will virtually care for Franklin's pet dog, Chop. Take care of him well in the app, and in game he'll earn you credits (which you can exchange for new collars), be more responsive, perform tricks, and even find you hidden items when you take him out for a walk in the game.
The app is now available on on iOS for free. An Android version is expected soon.
For more on the game, check out Matt Bertz's review.
Our Take:As more and more games utilize apps to further the experience, do you prefer those that you use alongside you while you're playing the game, or those that work outside of it? I generally prefer the latter, like in this case.

I don't need a app for this game anyway
just looked for it and cant find it yet through my phone
I thought Chop was Lamars dog
Sounds like a cool addition to GTA V.
I don't have an iOS device. I don't see why developers can't make the function of these apps available on their site anyways.
Regardless of not owning a piece of technological, break-easy hardware, I'll be cruising in search of the 'great dune.'
I wasn't going to download this until I read you can reserve your license plate, although I don't think anyone will take what I have in mind. btw when does the online get released?
Apple first... figures. What is the market share again? lol
I wish this was at least on PC or something so I can enjoy it too.
I love it. wish rockstar cared for android as much though. How bout someone release an app for android first for once instead of catering to the company that could care less about games right now. then again more people have ios over android
Interesting enough I guess.
Fable meets GTAV?!
