Rockstar Games released a Grand Theft Auto V "iFruit app" to iTunes on Monday that lets users goof around with dog training and car customizations that carry over directly into the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game.
"iFruit hooks directly into your experience of Grand Theft Auto V with some fun activities to further postpone the need for real social interaction," the app's official description reads. "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 Games apps."
LifeInvader is Rockstar Games satirical take on Facebook.
The iFruit app includes a Los Santos Customs app that lets players create and reserve custom license plates for both GTA V and Grand Theft Auto Online which officially launches on Oct. 1. Users can also use the app to pimp their ride with paint jobs, window tints, smoke colors, wheels, hoods and spoilers. They can also upgrade their engines, brakes, exhaust, suspension, and accessorize with new lights, horns, tires and body armor and find the changes waiting for them in the garage when they return to the game on their console.
Meanwhile, the Chops the Dog app lets players take care of and train Franklin's pet Rottweiler on the go. Players that pet Chop, feed and water him, play fetch and tug-of-war, teach him tricks and take him for walks in the app at just the right amount will see a number of benefits in game such as:
- 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
